There is nothing quite like the natural appearance and beauty of a cedar roof. However, one of the drawbacks is that they can begin to look less than appealing if mold, mildew, moss, algae, and other contaminants have begun to grow. The good news is that you can resolve this and protect your investment with professional cedar roof cleaning services. Ideally, cedar roof cleaning should be done every three to seven years depending on various factors. For example, if your home is shaded by trees, it could be more prone to algae and need it more often.
The best times for cedar roof cleaning are in the early spring and early fall. It is highly recommended that you do not handle this process yourself, especially since you’d most likely use pressure washing equipment, which is not the best solution. Soft washing by a professional is the best way to remove the contaminants without causing any damage to the cedar shingles. Another reason to go this route is that some cedar shingle manufacturers require regular professional cedar roof cleaning be done to keep your warranty active. You should check your warranty as it will dictate how often this should be done.
