Bergman Roof Cleaning and Pressure Wash.33981,33947,33946 ,33953,33987,33993,33948,34224 Edit Blog Entry


What you see in the above videos, is all that should be done to clean roofs 100%.
A pressure washing machine should never even be started up during the cleaning process and at Chuck Bergman Roof Cleaning and Pressure Washing we have over 25 years experience right here at out home location in Charlotte County 33981. Convinced 1st because many roofing manufacturers and the ARMA roofing manufacturers association all say to clean roofs in the same manner that we do. Also, after starting out in 1989 pressure washing roofs and seeing the roofs come clean looking, but having to feel bad about the wear and tear I was causing, I feel proud now, to make them not only look mostly like new, but no damage at all occurs!
It's a simple 1 part, self cleaning application of roofing manufacturer specified cleaning agents.
Many manufacturers say specifically "Do Not Pressure Wash"

Be wise and stick with the roofing manufacturers only specified cleaning chemicals - Bleach, soap and water. Plus only use the same manufacturers specific Non-Pressure chemical cleaning application on your roof! Pressure Washing Your Roof Could Void The Manufacturer's Warranty + will most certainly, to one extent or another, damage it!
A pressure washing job would consist of applying chlorine and perhaps soap through a downstream chemical injector-most chemical injectors advertise 20% but some say over 30% like the Alison Super Suds Sucker. Then an average pressure washer is 3000 to 4000 psi. This pressure will not only blow a considerable amount of granules off of a shingled roof, or the glazing / or paint from a tile roof, it will also blast that chlorine application under the shingles or tiles, perhaps reaching nails and fasteners etc under your shingles. With "Non-Pressure" Cleaning, we use 25 to 35% bleach for shingles and up to 50% for tile, as suggested by a few roofing manufacturers, plus Soap and water and only up to 60 psi pressure, just enough to get the roof cleaning mix up on the roof.

Here is also a video of us cleaning a tile roof. Not even a tile roof should be blasted with a 3000 to 4000 lb [psi] pressure washer! Especially since no pressure at all is needed!

At Chuck Bergman Roof Cleaning and Pressure Washing, clearly we do all types of pressure cleaning, we are perhaps the oldest pressure washing business in Charlotte County! Having been in business ever since 1989 not only in Charlotte County, but also Sarasota County. We just don't pressure clean roofing, because we have learned it is the wrong way to clean a roof. It causes too much wear & damage.

The roofing manufacturer links below all say to use this method.
They all also warn against "Pressure Washing"

{GAF Roofing Manufacturer}

{ARMA Roofing Manufacturer Association Cleaning Bulletin}

{CORNING Roofing Manufacturer} Click number 1 "algae growth"

The ARMA also says not to allow anyone to apply any roof coatings. This is something to watch out for! A common sales gimmick. Usually pressure washing companies-not roof cleaning companies-will persuade you to pressure wash your roof
[ saying they turned the pressure way down :-)  get out your pressure gauge, or be fooled -and then sell you an after coating, which they want to reapply every 2 years.
Names like Roof-A-this, Roof-a-That,  Roof Armer, Etc- Not wanting to name any specific one, because suing is a big part of their businesses.
Read the ARMA warning below and see why to not allow such coating to be applied to your roof!.

Te above roofing manufacturer association says specifically, not to allow anyone to apply any roof coatings, meant to deter the re-growth of algae. One reason they give, is none have proven successful, but also the possibility of damage etc is mentioned.
This is a common sales gimmick. Usually pressure washing companies-not roof cleaning companies-will pressure wash your roof and then sell you an after coating, which they want to walk your roof and reapply every 2 years. 2 Years is the length of the after-coating warranty. That's because most roofs, even power washed, stay clean at least that long anyway. However, roofs cleaned properly, without a pressure washer, usually only need cleaning every 3-4 years-almost double that of a power wash job!

Product names like Roof-A-this and Roof-A-That , Roof Armer Coat etc {Names changed} are after coatings. The above link from The roofing manufacturer association, warns not to allow after-coatings.
