Do you need your roof cleaned because you’re having solar panels installed?


While it’s not required, it is best to clean your roof before installing solar panels. This is the perfect time to have your roof soft washed before having solar panels installed. This ensures the area will remain clean because solar panels help keep the area under them in great condition. When solar panels are removed, the area where the panels were protected by the solar panels and so that area will look much cleaner than the rest of the roof. If you do not clean your roof first, any mold, mildew, algae and lichens will continue to grow and spread across your roof.


Do you pressure wash a roof, do a roof shampoo or soft wash a roof?


The best and safest way to clean a roof is soft roof washing. Never pressure wash or pressure clean your roof. Pressure washing damages your roof shingles, paper and doesn’t clean or remove black streaks, mold, mildew, lichens or moss. The only way to professionally clean your roof is a soft roof wash.By the way, our soft roof wash process will not damage solar panels, and we can easily work around the area in which solar panels are installed.

Is roof cleaning important?


One of the areas of a home that gets neglected is the roof. Ironically, your roof is the most important part of your home and is one of the most expensive areas to replace. Your roof protects your home from the sun, rain, snow, cold and hot weather. A damaged roof often goes overlooked for long periods of time because it is so high up and rarely completely over. This can result in damage to attic, ceilings, walls and siding… all of which can cost even more than repairing or replacing the roof.


Cleaning your roof extends the life of your roof. It also is the only way to remove algae, lichens, mold, mildew, bacteria and fungi that eat away and destroy your roof. Soft roof washing your roof cleans and removes all of these.  


Should we clean our roof gutters too?


In addition to having Westchester Power Washing clean your roof, we also recommend you have your gutters cleaned and fascia inspected annually. Debris, leaves and dirt left on your roof and in your roof gutters can reduce the life of your roof and create conditions for other problems.

The first step to maintaining your roof is to make sure it is clean. In our NY environment there are a lot of molds, algaes, mosses and lichens that thrive on roof surfaces. This is due to the inclement weather we experience in the winter and spring months.  Once the roof is clean, keeping it clean is key to extending the life your roof.
