Can Roof Shingles be Cleaned?

Roofing shingles can be cleaned with the right materials and precautions. It is not recommended that you use a pressure washer as the shingles can often break under the intense spray of water, and you might lose the warranty on your roof. Instead, use a sprayer that will gently spread the water and cleaning solution to the areas that need it the most. The type of cleaner is also important to the health of your roof and safety of your family. Bleach is used in some DIY tutorials, but it is not always recommended. Bleach could distort the color of your roof and cause damage to plants under the run-off. For the best cleaning solution, contact your contractor for the best recommendation for your roofing material and age.
