If you aren’t having it done at least yearly, you should seriously consider it. Here are three key reasons why Commercial Power Washing benefits your Pennsylvania business.
Make Your Siding & Roof Last Longer
Stains from algae and mildew or mold don’t just make the exterior of your business look bad. They also damage the surface they grow on. Organisms have a way of eating into the surface they are growing on, including asphalt shingles.
In fact, this is food for algae. Algae feeds on limestone. Asphalt shingles are made of limestone, so it uses your shingles as a food source. As the algae reproduce, it can cause huge black stains on the roof. The stains are actually the byproduct that’s left after the organism feeds.
These organisms will also break down brick and wood. Before you know it, the porous surfaces become even more porous and let in moisture, adding a mildew or mold problem to the mix.
Keeping up with power washing a few times per year will keep the problem at bay. However, be sure you use a professional power washing service who knows how to properly treat these surfaces. For instance, siding and roofing product warranties can be voided if the power washing or chemicals damage it.
