Do You Need Cedar Shake Roof Cleaning Des Moines?
Cedar Shake Roof Cleaning Des Moines is not just something that anyone should do. Cleaning cedar shakes require a level of expertise due to the possibility of damaging and prematurely needing to replace the roof. Cedar shakes should not be power washed as this damages them, the Sullivan cedar shakes cleaning formula has been specially designed to remove algae, fungus, moss, and other organic matter that can rot the shakes.
It is also very important not to seal or cover the shakes with anything (although many people sell this service) it is actually negative to the longevity of the shakes and will require a roof replacement earlier than otherwise needed.
Cedar Shake Roof Cleaning is not a regular thing, it is done once every 10 years or so. If there is a build-up of organic matter or you have trees depositing leaves onto the cedar shakes then this may need to be done a little earlier. If the cleaning is neglected and the shakes are left to deteriorate then the roof will need replacing, if you listen to cowboys and get the roof cleaned too often or even replaced then you will be spending money unnecessarily. Cleaning your cedar shake roof is a small budget of around 5% of what it would cost to replace the entire roof.
Eco-Friendly Cedar Shake Roof Cleaning Des Moines
Is it possible to be able to clean a Cedar Shake Roof and not use caustic and chemical substances? Some say no, Sullivan Roof Cleaning says absolutely yes! (Because we do it).
Our formula is a closely guarded secret but it is based on citrus and contains other ingredients that allow us to efficiently and effectively remove the algae, fungus, moss, and any other organic matter that may be growing and making an infestation on your cedar shake roof.
Our formula is safe for you, your family, your pets, and your garden. It also restricts the growth of the issues in the future which is unlike power washing which just removes the immediate problem but leaves the root cause.
Not only is our cedar shakes formula safe for the environment but we also never set foot on the shakes and perform the entire clean from a special ladder to distribute the weight across the shakes and ensure they are not broken.
