Protect Your Property by learning about your choices in different cleaning methods.
Most Roof Cleaning contractors here in Florida are using high-strength Chlorine Bleach (Pool Chlorine) because it is cheap, fast, and easy – but there are much safer and more effective ways to maintain your roof.
Extremely High-Strength Chlorine Bleach solutions usually will not do noticeable damage to actual asphalt roof shingles or concrete roof tiles, but they will do irreversible damage to almost everything else that comprises a roof system – fixtures, flashings, fasteners, gutters, and most importantly the underlayment that covers the roof and serves as the actual waterproofing. This damage usually goes unnoticed for years before the problem is discovered.
This is why you do not see reputable Roofing Professionals using or advocating this dangerous method – but you will find them using other methods that are safer for the roof, safer for the environment, and APPROVED by Roofing Manufacturers.
- FACT: Both Bleach and TSP will corrode metal (even in weak concentrations) and High-Strength Chlorine Bleach (Pool Chlorine) will accelerate the damage – especially when the roof is not rinsed properly.
- FACT: Not One Roofing Manufacturer in the US recommends the High-Strength Chlorine Bleach solutions that are being used all over Florida and increasingly throughout the US.
- FACT: Roofing Manufacturers have approved safer alternatives to Chlorine Bleach for cleaning roofs.
