Frequently Asked Questions About Roof Cleaning

Q: Do you walk on my roof?

A: No, we prioritize the safety and integrity of your roof. Our team uses specialized equipment and techniques to perform pressure washing without the need to walk on your roof, ensuring the protection of your property.

Q: What are those black streaks on my roof?

A: The black streaks on your roof are often caused by the growth of algae, moss, or mold. These organic materials thrive in humid environments and can compromise the appearance and integrity of your roof. Our pressure washing services are designed to effectively remove these stains, restoring the cleanliness and curb appeal of your roof.

Q: Do algae, moss, and lichen damage my roof?

A: Yes, algae, moss, and lichen can cause damage to your roof over time. They trap moisture, leading to the deterioration of roofing materials. Our pressure washing services are tailored to eliminate these harmful elements, preventing long-term damage and preserving the longevity of your roof.

Q: Can a roof cleaning save me on energy cost?

A: Absolutely! A professional roof cleaning can help save on energy costs. By removing dirt, algae, and other contaminants, your roof reflects more sunlight, reducing heat absorption. This, in turn, enhances the energy efficiency of your home by maintaining a cooler temperature and potentially lowering your cooling expenses.

Q: How do you clean a roof?

A: We utilize advanced pressure washing techniques to clean roofs effectively. Our process involves using specialized equipment to apply a gentle yet powerful stream of water, removing dirt, algae, moss, and other contaminants without causing damage. This method ensures a thorough and safe cleaning, preserving the integrity and longevity of your roof.

Q: Do you use a pressure/power washer?

A: No. We would never recommend voiding your warranty! Using high pressure on roofing materials can easily cause damage and for this reason many roofing manufacturers will void the warranty if you use pressure to clean your roof. In fact; soft washing is recommended by ARMA (Asphalt Roofing Manufacturers Association).

Q: Can your solution hurt my plants?

A: No, our cleaning solution is carefully formulated to be plant-friendly. We take precautions to protect your landscaping during the pressure washing process, ensuring that our solutions are environmentally safe and won't harm your plants or greenery.

Q: Is there anything I should do to prepare for my roof cleaning?

A: Prior to your roof cleaning, we recommend securing any loose items around your property, such as patio furniture or decorations. Additionally, it's beneficial to trim overhanging branches to provide our team with safe and unobstructed access. Clearing the area helps us ensure a smooth and efficient roof cleaning process.

Q: So you use my water?

A: Yes, we use your water supply during the pressure washing process. However, rest assured that our equipment is designed to be water-efficient, minimizing usage while still delivering effective and high-quality cleaning results for your property.

Q: What other services do you provide?

A: At KT Power Washing & Sealing, we specialize exclusively in pressure washing and house washing services. Our focus is on delivering exceptional results in these areas to ensure the highest quality and expertise for your property.

Q: Do I have to be home for the estimate or the job?

A: No, you don't have to be home for the estimate, but it can be helpful for us to discuss your specific needs. For the job, as long as we have access to the areas needing service, you can go about your day while we work. We prioritize convenience and flexibility for our clients.

Q: What happens if it is raining the day the work is scheduled?

A: If it's raining on the scheduled day, we may need to reschedule your service for a more suitable time. Pressure washing is most effective when done in dry conditions. Your satisfaction is important to us, and we'll work with you to find a convenient and weather-appropriate time for the job.

Q: How long will the roof cleaning last?

A: The duration of roof cleaning depends on various factors such as the size of your roof and the extent of cleaning needed. Generally, our efficient process allows us to complete most roof cleaning projects in a single day. We prioritize prompt and thorough service to minimize any inconvenience to you.

Q: How long does the cleaning process take?

A: The duration of the cleaning process varies based on the size and complexity of the job. In most cases, our efficient team can complete the cleaning process in a single day, ensuring a swift and thorough transformation of your property. We prioritize timely service without compromising on quality.

Q: Do you have insurance coverage?

A: Yes, we are fully insured to provide our clients with peace of mind. Our insurance coverage is comprehensive, ensuring protection for both our team and your property during the pressure washing process. You can trust us to deliver quality service with the utmost care and security.

Q: Will this type of cleaning be safe around my fish pond?

A: Absolutely, we take special care around sensitive areas like fish ponds. Our cleaning solutions are eco-friendly and designed to be safe for plants and aquatic life. We implement precautions to ensure that your fish pond and its surroundings remain undisturbed and protected during the pressure washing process.
