Roof Cleaning

Metal Roof Cleaning Des Moines, Iowa

Remove stains, moss, organic matter, and Algae to bring your Metal roof back to life!

People in the Midwest often find themselves with a metal roof. These roofs, while attractive and durable, can sometimes look dirty and in need of a good cleaning. But why is it important to have your roof cleaned? Here are three reasons:
  1. Cleaning your metal roof will make sure it stays in the best condition possible and ensure it lasts as long as it is meant to.
  2. Cleaning your metal roof will make sure the metal isn’t damaged by rust or other oxidation which can lead to long-term damage and premature roof renewal.
  3. Finally, cleaning your metal roof will keep it looking beautiful and shiny. This can help to increase curb appeal and even add value to your home if you ever decide to sell in the future.

Bruce thanks again for help and going the extra mile on this one.

Metal Roof Cleaning Service by Sullivan Roof Cleaning

Metal Roof Cleaning Service by Sullivan Roof Cleaning.

Sullivan Roof Cleaning uses a non-pressure cleaning process where we don’t walk on your roof nor do we use a power washer.

We use a non-toxic and non-caustic cleaning solution that will remove all the algae, moss, mold, mildew, lichen, and fungi from your metal roof and will not cause any harm to your metal roof.

Our metal roof cleaning process is safe for your home, landscaping, children, and pets.

Oxidization is another key to watch out for and there are remedies for preserving the roof panels. This usually requires deep cleaning and painting or coating of the panels. Depending on the products used to restore it, this may have to be done every -3-5 years for aged metal roofs.

Keeping your roof clean and clear from debris is one of the crucial steps in metal roof maintenance. All roof systems are designed to shed water, when it loses this capability, moisture retention opens the surface to a biological Petri dish. There are many forms of microscopic plants that thrive in moist environments. They will excrete fluids that encourage the formation of rust. Algae, moss, and lichens are the top three to inhabit many surfaces and work in unison to thrive.

The use of “annual treatments” for algae prevention has no valid scientific history and your roof system was designed to function purely as manufactured. These “up sells” are usually a concoction of algaecides sold in pool stores or farm animal care. They are not made for roofs. After a few rains they are washed off the roof. They do not have the chemical nature to sustain the elements of the weather.

Exterior Cleaning Roof & Siding, Johnson, Iowa

Amazing! I had the roof, siding and soffit cleaned on my 14 year old home. I can’t believe the difference it made! It looks new again! Sullivan was great to work with. There was absolutely no trace they had been there, other than the clean house and roof! I am very pleased. I will refer my friends and family to Sullivan Roof Cleaning!

Siding and Deck Cleaning, Johnson, Iowa

I found Bruce and Maria via their Your Tube video demonstrating their approach to cleaning the “green” stuff growing on the north and east sides of my home. I recommend watching it, it’s exactly who they are and what they do.

My house, deck and patio look brand new! I wish I had taken before pictures. The improvement is dramatic.

They arrived as scheduled, worked efficiently and with respect for my property. The work was completed for exactly the bid they provided when they visited my home to provide a free quote. I wish all contractors were so reliable and transparent. I am a very satisfied customer.

Cleaning Product Works-Des Moines

Bruce has done several roof cleanings for me and the results always exceed my expectations. He’s saved me thousands of dollars on my investment properties by making old roofs look brand new. He cleaned my gutters and siding in just a few minutes in what would have taken me hours with a power washer. With just a simple rinse, his cleaning solution removed dirt and grime that a pressure washer couldn’t remove. He’s got an amazing product.

Roof Cleaning-Pleasant Hill, Iowa

I was skeptical of this when my wife suggested it. I told her roofs were suppose to do this after time. I went to Menards to purchase a product and tried it in a small area ( no results) we went ahead and had it done and our roof looks like the day we had it installed. This is the best money we have spent to keep the house looking like the day we built it. GREAT JOB!!! I would recommend this to anyone.

You did an awesome job on my daughter’s log home, deck, railing, swing and chairs on the deck. They are totally impressed. My roof looks great, as well as, the stucco on front of my house. I appreciated your professionalism regarding communication and being where you said you would be at the time agreed upon.
