Metal Roof Cleaning Companies Jacksonville, Florida

This is a great example of a metal roof cleaning. These images show off how great a metal roof can look, when cleaned properly. There are some important things to consider when cleaning metal roofs. Just like any other type of roofing material, there is a right way and a wrong way to clean it. 

For example, there are some people who use the wrong types of cleaners for roofs. The chemicals used may be meant for other types of uses, not exactly cleaning roofs. In some cases, we have heard of people using things that can be seriously destructive to roofing materials, and are very dangerous to use. 

Here are a few industrial chemicals used in the exterior cleaning business: S hydroxide, S H, S percarbonate, S metasillicate. There are many others with similar names. Most of them are used in raw form, and mixed on site. Do you know which one is the right one for cleaning roofs? Do you know the right concentrations that are allowable on different surface like asphalt, clay tile, metal, epdm/rubber roofing, etc? Does your roof cleaning company know? Do they know the proper additives, and what kinds of things can be mixed as well as what can't be mixed together? Do they know how to properly deal with the specialized processes needed for metal roofs? Are they aware of oxidation, what it is, how to identify it, and how to deal with it?

There are a lot of questions to ask when considering a roof cleaning company, and most people don't ask them. They figure roof cleaning is simple stuff. Squirt something on the roof, how cheap can I get it done? 

In other cases, the methods employed are wrong. Some people attempt to clean roofs using pressure washers, and wet metal roof is the last thing you want to be walking around on. Also, you never use a pressure washer to clean a roof. Ever. Others may employ weak inefficient "soaps" or cleaners that still require using pressure to clean the surface inch by inch. Did I mention you never use a pressure washer to clean a roof? Ever? Good. 

These methods fail to work effectively, and efficiently for property owners. They also have a short lived result, because they fail to address the root of the problem. 

Using the proper cleaning and zero pressure methods, metal roofs can be safely restored. That said, if you didn't know any better, you would think all roof cleaners do the "same thing". Not everyone knows the right process. For instance, metal roofs absolutely must be rinsed of roof cleaning solution, and then have a neutralizer applied, followed by a final rinse. Metal roofs need treated with respect, because they are extremely dangerous to work on and around, especially when wet. They are also susceptible to other issues that substrates like asphalt and tile are not.
