Roof Cleaning Services, at its Finest
Have you taken a look at your roof and wondered what that dark green, almost black stuff is on your roof? It's an algae that thrives in warm and damp environments and once it gets a hold of your roof, it will spread until the entire roof is covered. That is until you call KC Power Clean. Although the algae is more noticeable on terra cotta colored concrete tiles, it also thrives on original spanish tiles, lightweight concrete tiles, and even asphalt shingle roofs. We've cleaned them all. We not only service all of Orange County, but also Los Angeles, San Bernardino, Riverside, and even San Diego County.
- We welcome HOA cleaning projects as well.
- We offer both high-pressure and low-pressure roof cleaning options
- Our service actually kills the algae spores so that it doesn't grow back quickly
- We pride ourselves in a thorough clean-up after the roof wash is finished!
Different Roof Materials Listed Below
Before calling us for an estimate, it helps if you identify the type of roof material you have. See the pictures below as reference...
Spanish Concrete Tile
These tiles are often mistaken for the original clay spanish tiles. Unlike the originals, these concrete tiles are the common choice for builders in Southern California because they are cost efficient, durable, and can be walked on safely.
Villa Concrete Tile
The concrete tile listed on the left is often found in the red color as well. Algae and moss love these tiles just as much!
Smooth surface, flat concrete tiles
* These tiles can be very slippery even when dry so safety is crucial.
Rough surface, flat concrete tiles
* These tiles are often lightweight concrete material and someone who is inexperienced with these will often crack them.
2 Piece Clay Tiles
These tiles should not be walked on as they will often crack even with an experienced roofer. Thankfully, there are alternative to walking on the roof for the cleaning procedure.
1 Piece Clay Tile
This particular roof was washed without walking on the surface. This photo was taken during the demonstration. Our proprietary roof cleaning detergents will remove not only the soot and dirt, but will also kill the algae down to the very spores.
If you look closely, you can see the detergent at work as it removes the last of the spores on the tested roof tiles. The solution will foam white when it is actively cleaning.
Wood Shake/shingle Roofs
Wood Shake Roof
Let us clean and treat your wood-shake roof with a special oil-based stain and/or sealer that will penetrate deep into the wood fibers to maintain it’s look and durability for years to come.
Composition Roof / Ashpalt Shingle
Asphalt shingle roof
If your composition roof has dark streaks or regions, or just has lots of landscape debris on it, we are happy to help clean it up.
Although these roofs are nearly maintenance free, we can rinse them down and give them a gentle scrub if they have soot or dirt on the surface.
Cool roofs are the new thing that provide amazing energy efficiency but they do require regular maintenance if they are to retain their solar reflectance. We have the proper detergents that gently lift the dirt from the pores so that a low-pressure can rinse the roof clean.
