The north side (front) was extremely moldy as you can see, needing two coats, south side (back) only needed one light coat.

What you should know about cleaning your roof.
DON'T REPLACE IT, CLEAN IT!!

Your house is most likely your biggest investment and your roof is one of the most expensive parts of your house. It is extremely important to have the utmost in confidence in your decision before hiring a qualified roof cleaning contractor.

PRESSURE WASHING PRO/ ROOF CLEANING PRO only use chemicals approved by the ARMA* Asphalt Roofing Manufacturers Association and does not use pressure on asphalt shingles. We also provide our customers proof that our chemicals are recommended by the ARMA- Asphaltroofing.org, RCIA, and shingle manufacturers by providing technical bulletins directly from their websites. Our chemicals provide enough cleaning power to remove all mold, mildew, and streaks...without pressure washing or heavy rinsing.

We provide a 100% Guarantee your roof will look like new again!"

Pressure washing is not recommended because it will remove a large amount of the ceramic coated granules from your shingles, which will void the warranty. Even low pressure will cause granule loss and shorten the life of your shingles. If you have ever cleaned out the inside of your gutters you will notice granules in them just from the rain taking them off. Think what any additional pressure would do to your roof.

For instance, you see someone cleaning a roof with so-called "low" pressure and biodegradable chemicals and it appears they have done a good job just because the streaks and discoloration are gone, but guess what? So is a large amount of the protective ceramic coated granules which insures the shingle's warranty.
The roof will no longer have the original 20-30 year warranty the customer paid for. Thousands of dollars are spent each year replacing and repairing damage caused by under skilled operators and companies who over sold their knowledge and capabilities. 

Depending on how corrosive the chemicals they were using and the amount of pressure was applied to the shingles, a 20-30 year warranty roof may only have enough ceramic coated granules to last 5-15 years.  There is no telling how much damage they have done until 5-15 years later the roof has deteriorated prematurely and must be replaced MUCH MUCH sooner than they should have.  Make sure your roof's warranty will not be compromised by hiring a qualified professional who really knows what they are doing, has references, and has proper documents from the RCIA, ARMA, and shingle manufacturers to PROVE it.

Always use a 'chemical only' cleaning process for your roof. Roof cleaning is a completely different trade from pressure washing requiring different pumps, plumbing, hoses, nozzles, valves, chemicals, caution, knowledge, experience, skill, and insurance. The certified RCIA roof cleaners have all of the necessary tools, and have learned from the best roof cleaning professionals in the country.

Make sure you know what kind of chemicals are being applied on your property.

1) Do not accept "it's biodegradable" for an answer.
Even uranium is biodegradable over 50,000 years or so.

Because many "competitors" lack our roof cleaning equipment, knowledge, training, and experience, they sometimes apply a dangerously strong chemical solution. Sodium Hydroxide and Potassium Hydroxide will dissolve the asphalt and tar on your roof, shortening the life of your shingles and voiding the roof's warranty. Even sodium metasilicate is too corrosive.  Products containing sodium percarbonate (oxygenated bleach) are ineffective and will not remove streaks without pressure.

2) Do not accept "we use low pressure" for an answer.
What exactly do they mean by low pressure?  500-1000psi is too much and will blast off
too many granules.  Any more pressure than 100psi is excessive.

If the company you are asking whether or not they use a pressure washer and they say, "Yes, but it's very low-low pressure"  It's only 500-1000psi and it won't damage your roof.  We can not stress enough to all home owners who have asphalt shingle roofs to avoid hiring companies who use any pressure at all.  A chemical only, NO pressure system is the best, safest, most efficient, longest lasting way to go.

Roof cleaning companies who "low" pressure wash roofs may have not had any complaints from the BBB for years, but it's only a matter of time when one of the roofs they have pressure washed will have to be replaced much sooner than the warranty expires. A more attractive lower price will actually be more expensive in the long run.

Gadgets like water brooms, roof gitters,
pitch witches, and surface cleaners

all operate from a pressure washer &
will all cause more harm than good.

Our chemicals do all of the work to remove streaks and discoloration from your roof and require no pressure or heavy rinsing. Because we do not have to rinse, your roof will stay cleaner longer than our competitors. Leaving the chemicals on the roof creates a roof treatment or a hostile environment for future algae growth. Each time it rains, a small amount of chemical is washed off to help re-clean your roof over and over again.

We offer a 3-5 year warranty against any streaks reappearing on your shingles.
Depending on environmental conditions against algae regrowth on your roof, the angle the roof faces the sun, the pitch, color, shade and tree cover the roof has, will determine how long the roof will remain streak, mold and mildew free. The more humid and warmer the climate, the more favorable the growing conditions for algae are, thus the warranty period is shorter than in colder, drier climates."


Concerned about your plants, pets, and landscaping?

We only spray the roof, not your plants. We always bag the ends of your downspouts, collect all the chemical run-off from the roof and dispose of them away from your landscaping. If the roof does not have gutters we will thoroughly dilute the roof cleaning chemical down to safe levels by spraying the landscaping with water before, during, and after applying chemical. After the chemical biodegrades and evaporates from the roof, the dried crystals and surfactant act as a roof treatment to keep the roof cleaner longer as it rains.


The rain actually does a better job of rinsing than if you tried to rinse it yourself because the rain is slightly acidic with of PH of 5.6. Our roof cleaning chemical has a PH of 11 and most city water supplies have a PH of 8. The rain helps reactivate the chemical at a lower ph, which gives the roof a secondary cleaning, neutralizes the chemicals better, and aids in disinfecting the mold and mildew embedded in the shingles even further. The rain does a much more thorough job, giving your roof a much longer lasting cleaning.

We have had to go behind many competitors who use chemicals NOT approved by the ARMA or shingle manufacturers or use no chemicals and pressure wash or rinse their customer's roofs, which start growing mold and streaks in 2 years or less.

We guarantee our roof cleaning will outlast our competitors!

The price of cleaning your roof vs. replacing it, averages 1/10 the cost!

IT DOESN'T COST, IT PAYS TO CLEAN YOUR ROOF!

SAVE YOURSELF $$ THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS $$ !!!

Pleasant Garden, NC - Before and After photographs
by ROOF CLEANING PRO - Greensboro, NC

BEFORE
Roof Cleaning Pro - Pleasant Garden NC (before).jpg

AFTER
Roof Cleaning Pro - Pleasant Garden NC (after).jpg

This roof was obtained by a referral from United Roofing Company, recommending the customer to clean their roof and not replace it.

This roof was never cleaned, neglected for over 20 years, and was one of the more challenging jobs I have encountered.  It required 3 coats to restore the original color of the shingles and consumed 80 gallons of chemicals.

As long as the shingles are intact, holding up well, and have sufficient granules, they can be cleaned and restored to look brand new.

Saving the customers $$ THOUSANDS $$ of DOLLARS.

Average savings of cleaning vs. replacing
is about 1/10 the cost of a newly replaced roof !!


WE 100% GUARANTEE YOUR ROOF WILL LOOK BRAND NEW!!!!

Cleaning gutters is easy with the proper chemicals and TEMPERATURE, Has to be warm enough at least 50 and sunshine to even consider doing them. Butyl based cleaners are the best for cleaning the streaks off gutters. Wal-Mart sells Purple Power and Castrol Super Clean. Both work, although the Castrol seems a bit stronger. Never apply it full strength, it will melt the paint, especially on a hot day. 50/50 with water is a good rule of thumb, but in the warmer months to come you can get away even lighter.

Here's a roof we cleaned in Clemmons, NC today. It went very smooth.

40 gallons of mix was all it needed to cover the whole roof even the roof above the screened in porch at the back of the house.

Streaks disappeared in 15 minutes from one coat.
