How A Low Pressure Roof Treatment Cleans Your Gutters

Low pressure roof cleaning systems are designed to clean your gutters without putting pressure on your roof. This is important because pressure can crack or break tiles. Roof cleaning can be done quickly with a low-pressure system, taking just one or two days, unlike traditional methods that take several weeks because they use high-pressures hoses that make it difficult for workers to avoid over-cleaning areas of your roof.


After A Biocide Application

Although it sounds more like a science fiction weapon, many pros actually do use biocide treatments on roofs. Biocides are also known as algae-killers and moss-killers. The chemical is sprayed on a roof, usually once per year when algae is forming. The chemical then kills any growing algae (or moss) improving the look of your property.

How Long Does The Treatment Last?

It’s difficult to give a precise answer, but most biocides last for a couple of years. It all depends on how frequently you experience rainfall, which affects how well water can seep down into your gutters (and prevent algae from growing on them). In general, your roof treatment will last for several years. When there are trees growing close by the longevity of the cleaning may be affected. Biocide treatments should be repeated regularly to prevent moss regrowing.
