4 Effective Steps to Clean and Maintain Your SPF Roof
Spray polyurethane roofs are a true miracle of the 21st century. Without having to dismantle your old roof and using its foundations to install your new roof, SPF is definitely one of the quickest yet long-lasting ways to replace a commercial roof. While it is durable, it isn’t invulnerable. SPF roofs get dirty and debris filled, which makes it important that it receives proper cleaning and maintenance whenever possible.
If you’re not working with an SPF maintenance service provider, here are four ways to effectively clean your roof, improve its aesthetics, and preserve its lifespan.
Pressurized Water Cleaning
Your in-house maintenance team should have a powerful 3000 PSI-capable pressurized water spray. This is the same type of pressurized water machine that car wash services use to clear the vehicle’s exterior of any dirt, dust, and residue. Indeed, it is quite an investment to own one, but if you plan to self-maintain your roof over the years, pressurized water makes it easy to get rid of any type of stubborn debris, mildew, and other undesirable elements on your roof. Additionally, keep in mind that pressurized water higher than 3000 PSI can cause damage to your foam roof, so be careful!
Check For Hard-Stuck Debris
Now that you’re equipped with the right tool, you can have your in-house team approach the different areas of your commercial roof. Make sure they inspect the following areas of your commercial property. Most often, we’ve found that most debris on SPF roofs are stuck not just on the material but can come from drains, gutters, HVAC units, piping and sewage units on the roof, HVAC units, and anything that on your roof. Your cleaning efforts will have been in vain if you didn’t check these areas promptly.
Use Detergents For Oil Cleaning
Water mixed with detergent (such as what you would use to clean clothes) work effectively with pressurized water in delivering exceptional oil and grease spillage removal. In addition, you’ll need to use a dedicated cleaning cloth to wash off the spillage from your SPF roof. Don’t use any high-acidity corrosive substances to remove oils and grease on your SPF roof because it will cause damages that will require your SPF roof to undergo costly refoaming repair.
Have an SPF Roof Maintenance Service Provider
SPF roof maintenance services allow you to pay a small amount on a regular basis to inspect your spray polyurethane foam roof for any type of cleaning needed and small-patch damage repairs to preserve the lifespan and capability of your SPF roof. True enough, your in-house cleaning and maintenance team can adapt and learn the best practices of SPF roof maintenance over time. But, experienced maintenance service providers have the necessary experience and equipment necessary, which make them a better investment.
