Answering the Most Frequently Asked Clay Roof Cleaning Questions
Wondering about how to safely and effectively clean your clay tile roof? Tile is one of the most durable and versatile materials that can be used for roofs, but proper maintenance is critical for both longevity and structural integrity. Today, we’re going over a few of the most important and pressing clay roof cleaning questions in order to help you get set up for success when it comes to maintaining a beautiful clay roof for as long as possible. Let’s go ahead and get started.

What is the safest way to clean my clay tile roof?

The best way to get your clay tile roof cleaned is with a professional soft wash. Soft-washing uses less pressure and heat than a regular pressure wash, opting instead for warm water and an effective cleaning solution. Soft-washing is a great way to clean your roof thoroughly without risking structural damage.

Will a professional roof cleaning cause any structural damage?

Getting your roof professionally cleaned should not cause any structural damage. By getting a soft-wash for your roof instead of a high-pressure wash, you’ll help avoid any potential damage to your tiles.

How often should my tile roof be cleaned?

Generally speaking, it’s a good idea to get your tile roof professionally cleaned about every two to three years, provided that proper maintenance is given to it year-round. If there is any visible debris, staining, or algae growth on your roof and it has been less than two years since your last professional cleaning, it’s still a good idea to call in a cleaning crew.

How can I keep my roof clean between professional washes?

Make sure that you clean out your gutters about once a year to help prevent clogging, algae, and mold growth. Gutter cleaning is one of the most effective provisions you can take to keep your roof both clean and structurally sound.

Should I avoid getting my roof professionally cleaned if it needs repairs?

Ensure that your roof has been repaired before getting it professionally cleaned. A damaged roof can pose a safety hazard both to the cleaning crew and to the occupants of your home; to avoid danger, always be sure to address any structural damage before scheduling a professional roof cleaning or attempting to do any cleaning yourself.
