  1. The many benefits of Roof Cleaning start with protecting your investment. A roof left untouched, but growing algae, lichen, and moss is drastically eating away at your investment in your roof, leading to premature wear, degranulization, and eventually a leaking roof. Many homeowner insurance companies are threatening to cancel policies due these types of damage.

    An infested roof, even if only appearing as black streaking on the surface, can raise your heating/cooling bills substantially. These streaks, as well as other forms of algae or moss hold moisture and retain heat. This causes heat build up in your attic spaces causing your climate systems to run more often.

    Maintaining your roof saves you from replacement, saving thousands of dollars and protecting the environment by keeping materials out of local landfills. On average a certified roof cleaner can clean your roof for about 10% the cost of replacing your roof. Many roofs that are maintained properly far out live there expected life span given by the manufacturer.

    Perhaps the biggest benefit in a homeowner's eyes is curb appeal. An ugly,infested roof is an eyesore. Let's face it, nobody wants to own the ugly house in the neighborhood. Now imagine trying to sell that house. If potential buyers don't like the outside of the house, they're not even going to look at the inside. In the buyer's eyes, if the exterior isn't maintained the entire interior is put into question. A home maintained with good curb appeal will sell much faster with fewer issues in the sales process then a home with bad curb appeal.

  3. Picture Do you wonder who made those black oily streaks and dark stains on your roof? It could be space aliens or maybe from racoons skidding their bottoms across the roof, tar baby tracks, jet fuel (From alien craft), tree sap, acid rain or really black dirt. Believe it or not, it is caused by Gloeocapsa Magma an algae. As this space mutant algae eats and multiplies, the colonies become larger and more dense. The dense area of the algae colonies are evident by the ugly black poop streaks which algae excrete as a protective sheathing that stain the roof. Along with the stain Gloeocapsa Magma eat the limestone filler in the shingle, they turn nitrogen into ammonia which acts as a fertilizer source for moss, algae and lichens causing them to grow and flourish.

    This air born algae is more prevalent as you travel west of the Cascade mountains. Besides the damage they do by eating the calcium carbonate, limestone layer, they also promote the colonization and growth of other destructive organisms. The effects of the algae are not only unsightly but very costly if not treated. If your roof is infected by algae, space aliens, or other mutant organisms such as Northwest mega mutant moss or lichen, have the best certified roof cleaner (non-pressure spray system) inspect it as soon as possible.

    Don't replace your roof "Clean It!" The black ugly roof stains is an algae. I have been cleaning homes in the Cary & Raleigh area with black ugly roofs. It is destroying your roof. Insurance companies are starting to deny coverage if your roof has this algae, lichen or moss on your roof. They are making home owners clean their roofs for for good reason

    NEVER allow someone to get on your roof and pressure wash the shingles. A low pressure chemical should be applied to kill the algae and clean the roof. If rinsing is desired a pressure similar to your garden hose pressure should only be used. Or mother nature is the best. We call this Soft Washing a roof. We can make your Asphalt shingles look new again. Can't do anything about the already missing granules but we can help prevent you from losing more.

  8. We were out again doing some roof cleaning , this was one of the smaller but dirtiest ones we did today. This was a 1200 sq ft tile roof that was covered in mold and was a white painted surface under all that mildew.

    This is a rental property in an older section of Palm Harbor FL. We have done quite a few of this customers properties and he was hoping to get the roof looking better than it was, he was not expecting miracles.

    So we did a softwash on this tile roof and got it looking pretty good considering the original condition. He was thrilled with the job, we also did a paint prep for him so he can get it all painted up for new tenants.

    Anyone in the Palm Harbor area in need of roof cleaning, please cal 727-919-1591

  9. Out washing roofs today in New Port Richey FL. We were in a beautiful gated subdivision called Waters Edge which is mostly high end homes and it is on Moon Lake.

    This was a referral once again from a neighbor across the street. We do a lot of work in this subdivision and most of the homes are large 2 story homes. This homeowner received a letter from the HOA to get his Tile Roof cleaned. When we showed up he started to tell me that he didn't think the roof really needed to be cleaned.

    But he said that he didn't want to be harassed by the HOA, so go ahead and clean it. I told him it was plenty dirty and that he will realize it when were done. We also gave him a house wash, because the soffits and trim were all covered in mold & Mildew as well.

    So as you can see from the pictures the dramatic difference it made when we applied our softwash mix to the roof. It brought all the original color back to the Tile, and also will enhance the life of the roof as well.

  10. In New Port Richey FL today washing shingle roofs. We had a few shingle roofs to clean in River Crossing where my good friends parents live since 1985. They are good friends from NY and they keep their home immaculate.

    We were doing their neighbor's roof today, which was a 2200 sq ft shingle roof. This is a older subdivision, but a well kept one. As u can see the roof was in need of cleaning, so we applied our softwash solution to the shingles to bring out the natural color of the roof.

    Anyone in the New Port Richey FL area in need of roof washing, please call 727-919-1591

  11. Out washing roofs again today. This was a small 1500 sq ft shingle roof we softwashed for a customer we got as a referral. We love doing these small roofs because it gives us time to do multiple roof jobs in one day.

  12. blog-0264529001427631802.jpgAdding Curb Appeal Can Sell Your Home Faster

    In a slow real estate market, a person can generally sell their home quicker by dropping their asking price. In a market where supply is greater than demand, a desperate seller may see a lower price as their only option to shorten their home’s time on the market.

    There are however, other things that a seller can do that will help boost their home’s appeal to potential buyers. Some things can be done without costing any money while others may cost a few bucks. In the long run, a few well-spent dollars can end up saving you thousands when you are not forced to drop your asking price in order to make a sale.

    Some things you can do that can potentially make your home more sellable aren’t done in or around your home. Your realtor can help add some ways to make your home more attractive to buyers. Sellers can often be enticed by things like money towards their closing costs or even entirely covering the closing costs as a way to sweeten the deal in a down market. Other things that can help motivate a buyer include a home warranty or an option to close the sale within 30-60 days. These types of incentives can make you home even more attractive.

    http://www.libertysoftwash.com/blog/adding-curb-appeal-can-sell-your-home-faster/ A seller may sometimes overlook or under prioritize the value of curb appeal

    The very first thing a potential buyer will see is what the home looks like from the outside. A home that doesn’t look appealing from the curb may be overlooked based on nothing other than it’s exterior appearance.

    Things like planting flowers, adding a fresh coat of paint to the front door or adding a new mailbox are inexpensive ways improve your home’s appearance at first glance. Some would argue that curb appeal is everything and your first impression often sets your expectations on the rest of the home.

    Another way to increase your home’s curb appeal is by cleaning your home’s exterior. Dirty sidewalks, siding, patios or decks can be an instant turn off for potential buyers. The standard of cleanliness you maintain on your home’s exterior is often measured against your home’s interior cleanliness, when being viewed by potential buyers.

    A dirty roof may also set off a false alarm telling buyers a roof needs to be replaced and will cost thousands of dollars. Having your roof professionally cleaned will only cost a fraction of the cost of roof replacement. Removing roof algae will dramatically improve curb appeal and eliminate the threat of losing a buyer because of an unsightly roof. Liberty SoftWash is an excellent choice when considering hiring a pressure washing contractor in Lancaster Pennsylvania and surrounding area

    Our exterior cleaning services are just what you need to add some curb appeal to your home. Cleaning your roof or pressure washing your siding is an affordable way to spruce up your home before you contact your real estate agent to list your home.

  13. blog-0376765001427625070.jpgSpring is finally here in Central Pennsylvania despite the unseasonable cold temperatures we are still dealing with. According to the experts, it could be a particularly difficult season for allergy and asthma sufferers. Over 40 million Americans who are used to dealing with spring allergies know that the end of March means the start of runny noses, watery eyes and other uncomfortable allergy symptoms

    In recent years, we have seen milder winters, which meant the early arrival of both pollen and spring allergies. Because we have had a much longer and colder winter, allergy season may start later and end sooner but, could pack quite a punch to the allergy sufferers in Central Pennsylvania while it is here.

    Oftentimes, the only way for an allergy sufferer to get some relief this time of year is to stock up on allergy pills and nasal sprays in an effort to minimize the suffering. Asthma sufferers are worse off than the average seasonal allergic person. Because it is typically the early spring that is the worst for asthma, doctors recommend asthmatics begin using their prescribed medications well before spring and spring allergy season begins.

    For those seasonal allergy sufferers who are not given relief from over-the-counter drugs, it may be necessary to take different measures. Newly available medications including immunotherapy pills work in the same manner as allergy shots have in the past.

    But there are precautions that can be taken to help ease the impending suffering of a person with springtime allergies in addition to whatever type of medications you would use to treat the symptoms of seasonal allergies.

    The savvy asthmatic or allergy sufferer will find it helpful to keep track of local pollen counts, which can be found online or by checking your local weather forecast. By keeping track of the pollen counts, it may make it easier to avoid outdoor activities. If it is still necessary to spend time outdoors, it may be most comfortable for allergy or asthmas to do so in the afternoon. Generally, the counts tend to highest between 5AM and 10AM and at their lowest right after a heavy rainfall. But also know that pollen can blow as much as 50 miles, making very difficult to escape!

    Another way to lessen the suffering from seasonal allergies is to try to keep pollen out of your home environment. Coats, jackets, shoes and hats should be taken off immediately upon entry to your home so help prevent contaminating other parts of your home with pollen that was carried into your “pollen free†living environment. Showering before bedtime to remove any residual pollen is also a necessary step to prevent transfer of pollen to your bedding.

    Cleaning your home’s exterior is yet another way to keep nasty pollutants such as pollen or algae from triggering allergic reactions. Regular cleaning of your home’s exterior including sidewalks, driveways, decks and other surfaces will help wash away the pollen, algae and other pollutants that cause springtime seasonal allergies.

  19. blog-0603920001426016677.jpgWhy would you worry about cleaning your roof?

    We've all seen it on trees and rocks those round plant things, green moss,and blackness, but what are they and why should you care if they’re on your roof? They don’t seem to hurt the rocks or trees so who cares if they grow on my roof.

    Well not only do they make your home look dreary and dirty but actually they are feeding off one of your biggest investments, your roof.

    A roof left with all these organisms actively growing is constantly deteriorating and will eventually cause a leak in the roof.

    Due to the potential for roof leaks many Homeowners Insurance Co. are now forcing their clients to have the roof cleaned or immediately replaced. Most clients have it cleaned.

    Lets face it the last thing anybody needs is another bill, but given the benefits of having your roof cleaned it just makes sense.

    Some of the benefits are;

    Instant curb appeal- don't be the neglected house in the neighborhood.

    Instant increased value- if your thinking of selling nobody is gonna buy your nasty roof.

    Your health- do you think breathing in that mold and bacteria is good for you?

    Save on heating/cooling bills- those organisms hold heat and moisture causing your heating/cooling bills to be higher.

    Common sense- spend a little now on cleaning and put off spending

    alot on premature replacement.

    The benefits go on and on.

    To take immediate advantage of the many benefits do what most people do and call

    Sussex County Roof Cleaning now.
