    These stains have caused many home owners in Grand Rapids to spend thousands of dollars having their roof replaced when they could have had it restored to like new condition for only a few hundred dollars. So before you contact a roofing contractor for an estimate, you should call us for a free evaluation to determine if the roof you already have can be restored. As for how a roof cleaning is done, we use a process where virtually no water pressure is applied in combination with professional strength roof cleansers that are specifically designed to eliminate the algae, without damage to the shingles.

    Cedar Shake shingles add elegance and longevity to a homes roof. Keeping the shakes cleaned will help them last for many many years. Kleen Roofs uses a soft wash system to safely clean cedar shakes. We perform soft wash cleaning of Cedar shake Roofs throughout Michigan. Depending on what is growing on the shakes will determine what cleaning mixture we will need to use. Roofs that have been neglected for a long time will have moss and lichen growing on the shingles and need extra attention to clean. While pressure washing of cedar was the way to clean them in the past, with the advancements in chemicals it is no longer needed to blast away at the soft cedar with a pressure washer. Doing so will many times damage the wood. Our soft wash system does not use the high pressure to clean with. We use the proper chemicals for cleaning cedar. It may be that the cedar has turned black, or has moss and lichen growing.
    In any case, Kleen Roofs can properly care for your roof.

    Our Grand Rapids clients choose us over the others because we do business using the latest technology in non-pressure cleaning and our customer service cannot be beat.
    Grand Rapids Roof Cleaning
    Your Grand Rapids home may be the biggest investment you have, and maintaining it is an important part of protecting and preserving its value. One of the most important, but often overlooked facets of home maintenance is roof cleaning. The roof is one of the most expensive element of your homes exterior. Keeping the roof free of black streaks, moss and lichen will ensure that the shingles last as long as they were intended too. If you notice black streaks on your shingles then your roof could use a non-pressure cleaning. Those black streaks are a form of algae that will continue to grow and spread over the roof. The algae growth will allow moisture to be trapped on the shingle longer, providing a perfect environment for Lichen and moss to grow. Lichen is much more damaging to shingles than the black streaks, as they will remove the granules, and start feeding on the filler in the shingles. Moss will grow under the tabs of the shingles causing them to lift which can lead to water penetration or cracked shingles.
    Our non-pressure, soft wash roof cleaning process is safe for your shingles, and is the recommended way to clean a roof according to the American Roofing Manufacturers Association. KLEEN ROOFS has a 2 year warranty on roof cleaning. We know that our process is the best, and believe that true customer service means not using gimmicks such as offering a so called "limited" warranty that some companies do is the best way to treat our customers. These limited warranties are nothing more than a way to get you to call them back in 3-5 years, and end up paying them the same price as you originally did. We do offer a maintenance plan where we will treat your roof 3 years after, and then every other year after that for a fraction of the original cost. This will protect your roof from the return of the algae.
    So, while you are doing the spring cleaning around the home take a moment and look at your roof, does it have black streaks, or maybe moss and lichen have already begun to grow. Whatever the case may be KLEEN ROOFS has the expertise to safely and quickly clean your roof.

    Walker is a great suburb of Grand Rapids, MI. With the great school systems, bike trails, churches and millennium park, it is a great place to raise a family. Like many of the homes around Grand Rapids, the homes in Walker are also prone to having dirt and mold on the exterior. Kleen Roofs & Exteriors safely cleans vinyl, aluminum, wood, and cedar siding using our non-pressure, soft wash system. Leaving the exterior of your home once again looking great ! Vinyl siding is a durable, low-maintenance material that is both attractive and cost-efficient, which makes it a popular choice for the exteriors of homes. Despite it high durability, the siding on your home is exposed to the harsh effects of the elements, but periodic cleaning will help keep it looking great. To keep the exterior looking great for years to come, the siding should be cleaned at least once a year.
    This is a home in Walker that we safely washed the siding on with our non-pressure system. It had years of grime and dirt on it, and heavy mold growth on the area's that did not see much sun.

    with the warm weather we had Saturday, Kleen was able to get out and clean a roof infested with Lichen. The home owner informed me that he had the roof pressure washed 2 years ago. With our non-pressure, soft wash cleaning method the lichen WILL NOT return to the roof like it did on this one. Having your roof cleaned by a company that uses a pressure washer is not a good use of your money. It might look clean when they are done, but what will it look like in 1 year ? 2 years ? From the infestation on this roof it is apparent that the cleaning method used only took off the lichen, did not kill it. Their was also evidence of granules missing from the shingles that the pressure washer blasted off. If you have a dirty roof, and want it cleaned the correct way, by a company that knows how to do it, and do it safely, look for a company that is certified by the RCIA.( Roof Cleaning Institute of America )

    Don't let those ugly black streaks ruin the look and property value of your home !

    Most roofs in the Grand Rapids MI area have a rated life cycle of 30 to 40 years. However, when ugly black streaks are allowed
    to take over a roof, the roof does not live up to its full life cycle. Replacing roofs every 10 to 20 years just because they are dirty does not make good economic sense. You no longer need to put up with the embarrassment of an ugly roof for years until it’s time to re-roof. This irritating and ugly problem of roof stains is easily solved with the safe, non-pressure soft wash cleaning that Kleen Roofs & Exteriors provides. For just a fraction of the cost of a total roof replacement, Kleen can kill and remove the algae that is causing those ugly roof stains and keep them from recurring for up to 5 years (5 year limited warranty).

    Whether you are a home owner, property manager or board member managing a community association, condominiums, homeowner

    association, apartments, adult community, or commercial property, Kleen Roofs & Exteriors is the affordable solution to getting rid of those ugly roof stains once and for all. Kleen uses a non-pressure, soft wash cleaning method that works WITHOUT damaging the shingles as a cleaning with a pressure washer will.

    One way that homeowners can safe money on home maintenance costs is to have the roof cleaned regularly. According to professionals in the roofing industry, typical shingled roofs in Michigan last between 12-19 years.(these are 30-40 year shingles) If these same roofs are subject to moss and lichen growth the lifespan will be even shorter. By having the roof cleaned, the lifespan of the shingles will be more in line with what the shingle was designed to last. According to data collected by HomeAdvisor the average cost for roof replacement in Michigan is: $6607.00. The average cost to have a roof cleaned is: $428.00 If by having the roof cleaned every 4-6 years extends the life of the roof even just 10 more years,that will add up to a big savings. If you are noticing black streaks, moss or lichen on your roof, give us a call today. By taking care of your roof now, you will ensure a longer life for the shingles, and money in your pocket.

    So you have black streaks on your roof. So what you say. Is it really causing any damage to my shingles ? We cleaned a roof that the homeowner noticed had black streaks starting to show up on his roof, he thought it was no big deal, just some dirt he thought. Well, it got worse and moss started to grow on the shingles. The homeowner gave us a call and we came out to to take a look at his roof. Upon closer inspection we found that the moss had actually started to grow under the shingles, lifting them up from the roof. this provides an easy access for moisture to migrate under the shingles, and start soaking into the roof sheathing. Moss acts like a sponge, soaking up water from the dew and rain and this is transferred under the shingles
    The reason the moss was able to begin growing on the roof was because of the black streaks ( gloeoscapa magma ) that was allowed to take hold on the roof. It is holding moisture on the roof longer, which in turn creates a environment that is great for both moss and lichen to grow.
    If you would like to get the most life out of your shingles, and not have to replace them early, or worse yet, have to replace rotted wood under the shingles, it is a smart financial decision to have your roof cleaned as soon as the black streaks appear.

    If you are concerned with what is on your roof give Kleen Roofs a call today. We will be glad to come out and inspect your roof and give you a quote for cleaning with our soft wash system that does not use any pressure washing to remove to black streaks, moss and lichen.

    There certainly are a lot of questions surrounding the topic of roof cleaning. Can you clean an asphalt shingled roof ? Can you clean a roof without harming the shingles ? What are the black streaks on my roof ? What will happen if I don't have my roof cleaned ?
    In many areas of the country roof algae ( Gloeocapsa Magma ) is becoming a major concern for homeowners. This type of algae needs three things to thrive. The right amount of sunlight ( or lack of sunlight ) a damp area, and food. Roofs have become a favored host for this algae because it offers everything needed.

    The algae feed on the crushed limestone that is used in the manufacturing of asphalt shingles. Limestone is used to keep the shingle flexible and also to help the fiberglass matting absorb the asphalt during production. North facing sections of roofs are the first areas that the algae become apparent. This is caused by the fact that it see's less sunlight, stays damp longer, and the food is there.

    Besides making a roof look very dirty and diminishing the home's curb appeal and value, what other damage is being done ? When the roof algae is not taken care of it prevents the shingles from reflecting the UV rays of the sun. Because the shingles cannot reflect heat from the sun, they start to fail prematurely. Signs of wear are curled corners, wavy or humped shingles, broke or loose shingles, and excessive amounts of granules from the shingles appearing in the gutters just to name a few.

    Most homeowners will notice and become concerned with the unsightly black streaks caused by the algae on their roof long before any serious damage is done.

    The good news is that shingles can be cleaned properly without harming the shingles. The major shingle manufacturers say so themselves. They even have guidelines and suggestions for the proper cleaning of asphalt shingles without harming them. The proper method includes a low pressure ( soft wash ) cleaner application followed by a light rinsing. This rinsing can either be done after the chemical application, or for better protection, the cleaner is allowed to dwell on the roof until a rain rinses the shingles. NOTE: Never allow a pressure washer to be used on your roof.

    Many roofs have been damaged by someone attempting to blast the algae off the shingles using a pressure washer. Doing this blows the protective granules off the shingles. Thus shortening the longevity of the roof.

    If you notice black streaks on your roof, or know someone else who is, don't loose hope and think you will need to spend thousands on a new roof. First give us a call and we access the situation with your roof for you.

    A proper roof cleaning can definitely safe you money.
