Preventative roof maintenance is the best way to protect your investment.
Properly maintained, a commercial roof system has a lifespan of 10 to 50 years depending on the materials used. Commercial roof cleaning is very important not only for the roof itself but also for the structural integrity of the building. When something goes wrong on the roof it always ends up trickling down and causing more problems to the rest of the building. Keeping your roof clean doesn’t just make it look good, it keeps it preforming at its best.
Commercial roofs are exposed to all the elements and need proper maintenance to ensure they are performing at their best.
A clean roof will provide maximum energy efficiency and it will also assist rooftop HVAC systems function more efficiently. If mold, mildew, and algae are allowed to build up on your roof they can be drawn into your HVAC air systems. This can have dangerous affects for the people inside the building breathing the contaminated air. Another important reason to have your commercial roof professionally cleaned is to eliminate unwanted moisture. Commercial flat roofing systems are notoriously prone to leaks. Debris, leaves, and other materials can gather on your roof and retain water, which can lead to rust. Rust will eventually lead to leaks! With regular cleaning and maintenance you can prevent small issues from becoming massive problems. A clean roof makes it easier to identify problems before they become major ones. Repairing small problems is always better than having to replace the entire roof and will save you lots of money in the long run.
