In today’s insurance landscape, homeowners are encountering a new requirement: roof cleaning. This shift has sparked a surge in demand for roof cleaning services, with insurance companies urging homeowners to prioritize roof maintenance. Curtis Smith, representing ProWash in Farmington, Missouri, sheds light on this emerging trend.

“We’ve observed a notable uptick in homeowners seeking our services,” says Curtis. “Insurance companies are placing greater emphasis on roof upkeep to prevent potential damage.”

Curtis stresses the importance of selecting a roof cleaning service with care. Some companies employ pressure washing methods, risking shingle damage and premature aging. “It’s important to hire a company that uses a soft wash method,” Curtis advises. “This method uses a solution to clean the roof without damaging it.”

Moreover, Curtis highlights the significance of understanding insurance requirements and ensuring compliance. “Roof cleaning is becoming a standard expectation,” he adds. “Homeowners should prioritize this to maintain their insurance coverage.”

But why are insurance companies insisting on roof cleaning? Algae and moss pose significant threats to shingle health, leading to deterioration over time. “Algae and moss growth weaken shingles, making them vulnerable to environmental elements,” Curtis explains.

For homeowners navigating insurance mandates, Curtis offers practical advice. “Choose a reputable roof cleaning service,” he advises. “Ensure they have the necessary expertise and use safe cleaning methods.”

In cases where insurance companies mandate roof cleaning, compliance is essential. Failure to do so could jeopardize insurance coverage. For those facing financial constraints, Curtis suggests exploring potential solutions with insurers.

In conclusion, insurance companies are increasingly emphasizing roof maintenance to protect against damage caused by algae and moss. For homeowners navigating these requirements, selecting a reliable roof cleaning service like ProWash is crucial. Trust ProWash to keep your roof in top condition and your insurance coverage secure.
