Clean Your Composition Roof
Damage from a pressure washer? Not under your roof.
Pressure washing can damage siding, shingles and composite roofs made of wood, laminate, fiberglass or slate. It’s zero fun.
That’s why we’re going to walk you through a faster, easier and gentler alternative: 30 SECONDS Outdoor Cleaner.
We know pictures sometimes speak louder than words, so take a look on the left to see why we’re so hyped about sharing our product with you. It simply makes life easier. Here’s how to use it.
- Start with 30 SECONDS Outdoor Cleaner Concentrate. Mix it 1:1 with water in a pump-up sprayer or backpack sprayer.
- Apply the cleaner when your roof is dry, preferably in the morning or when its cooler, so the cleaner doesn't just evaporate as quick.
- Saturate the area. Paying special attention to overlapping shingles. The stuff on your roof can have a strong foothold in overlapping seams. When it’s thoroughly sprayed, you’ll start to see the cleaner go white and bubbly and the stuff you’re cleaning off will start to look brown. This is your cue to stop spraying. Well done, you’ve applied enough.
- Once you’re happy with its visual appearance, simply rinse with a garden hose. This will leave you a nice clean roof. Now I must admit, some customers don't want to rinse the area. Maybe it’s too difficult or they don't want to hassle. This is fine. Leaving the cleaner to be rinsed off by rain will not harm your roof. The down side is the gunk you want to remove will look brown and ugly until the rain cleans it. If that doesn't bother you, then you can certainly apply 30 SECONDS Outdoor Cleaner without rinsing — just ensure good saturation — and call it a day.
This advice works on virtually any type of roofing. Effective saturation and timing is always key.
