EPDM roofing, Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer, is also known as rubber roofing. Cost-effective, durable and versatile, it is often used in low-slope or flat-roof systems.
Just like any other system, maintenance is crucial if you want it to last. Don’t make the mistake of neglecting rubber roof maintenance because it ensures prolonged protection. Although it resists wear-and-tear situations very well, rubber roofing still needs extended cleaning. Protecting your roof is simple when you do the necessary preventative maintenance. But for advanced services of rubber roof companies, turn to Silver Leaf Contracting. We’re the pros and the pros do it best.
During routine cleaning sessions, sweep away leaves, sticks and other gathered debris on the rooftop. After removing such waste, fill a large bucket with warm water and dishwashing soap. Stir well to create soap suds, then scrub away any collected filth, mildew or scuffs.
Routine sweeping, washing and inspection keep your rooftop’s integrity and functionality. Diligence and consistent check-ups both reduce damage and enhance aesthetics. They make a rubber rooftop a prime investment for any home or business owner. Roofing companies like Silver Leaf Contracting cannot stress maintenance enough.
Ill-maintained EPDM roofs get hot and can end up cracking during warm weather. This causes leaks inside your building when it rains. Soon mold, lichens, mildew and Cyanobacteria infest the EPDM membrane. You should never clean infestation using equipment such as pressure washers. Mold and mildew can enter AC units and other vents on the roofs. This is the right time to call professional EPDM roof cleaning. Roofing and siding contractors like Silver Leaf Contracting can handle the job.
Softwashing techniques is a safer way to clean EPDM roofs. The process involves using EPDM membrane soaps to kill off all known germs. It uses very little pressure or force avoiding any damage when removing any matter from the roof. Softwashing your EPDM is two to three times more effective than using a pressure washer.
