Commercial EPDM Roof Cleaning

Flat Roofs

I know with flat roofs many property managers of commercial building has the out-of-sight out-of mind mentality to the cleanliness of their roof.  But bear in mind that if you have a 50,000 sqft roof that is covered in algae do you think that your walls will get dirtier faster as well?  I guarantee it, particular where it drains but algae is an air born living micro-organism so if the colonies are alive and well on the roof they will more quickly colonize on the walls as well. 

Clean flat roofs will last longer.  Most manufacturing warranties on EPDM roofs require periodic (around every 2 years) cleaning.  Also, their is a significant difference in temperature during a hot Florida day of a black roof as opposed to a white roof.  So much of a difference that if you call me we will actually take a picture of your roof using a thermal camera and contrast a clean section versus a dirty.  For this reason, the cooling bill alone should more than pay for the cost of cleaning. Please note that though it is still best to clean rolled asphalt and other types of flat commercial roofs, white EPDM roofs will see the biggest difference in utility bills- up to 20 or 30% of cooling bill!
