Springtime Cleaning: 5 Types of Roof Cleaning Products

Posted on 18 October 2012

The roof of a home doesn’t only protect what is underneath the surface; it also creates the outward appearance of the home. If a roof isn’t in good shape or it’s looking a bit dull, the entire outside of a home could end up looking drab as a result. The good news is, with just a little bit of work and the right cleaning products, the entire roof can look brand new once again. Cleaning this surface is also a lot less expensive than installing a new one, so it’s a great option for anyone on a budget. The 5 types of roof cleaning products you can use include:

1. Pressure Washers

These are generally the best choices for cleaning the roof because they are so effective with how they clean. There are gas pressure washers as well as electric and there are different wands and guns available as well. The proper nozzle will result in the roof being cleaned of all dust and dirt so it looks like new once again. There are also wash brushes that attach to nozzles to gently clean hard surfaces. Most nozzle attachments have spots where detergent can be added to clean the roof more than just water would.

2. M-1 Deck and Roof Cleaner

This is a cleaner that can be found at most home improvement stores. It can remove mildew, weathering, grease, tree stains, dirt and much more to make any roof look just like new again. Once water is added according to package directions it will effectively clean up to 2,000 square feet. This is meant to be sprayed on and then washed off; it’s non-toxic so it won’t harm shingles, wood or grass underneath a home. It can remove up to 15 years of weathering that appears on a roof.

This comes equipped with a hose sprayer right on the top of it. It simply just needs to be sprayed and then left on to clean dirt and debris off of a roof. Some stains may require a couple of applications, but this is one of the most highly reviewed roof cleaners available.

4. 30 Seconds Spray and Walk Away

This is one of the most powerful roof cleaners available today. It is best suited for killing things like moss, mold and algae. All of these things easily grow on roofing of all kinds. All users have to do is spray this on their roof and walk away. The solution doesn’t need to be scrubbed or rinsed; it will do all the work to clean the surface area. Users who don’t have a lot of time or aren’t physically capable of cleaning their roof will enjoy this product.

5. Expert Chemical House Wash

Made for use on vinyl and aluminum gutter, this can get rid of a lot of dirt and debris that hide on the side of roofs. It does need to be sprayed onto the surface in order to clean; it a bit of effort is required in order to use this. It’s water repellent, which means users not having to worry about problems after they are done washing.
