  • Why is it important to maintain my roof and gutters?
    Regular maintenance prevents issues like water damage, leaks, and mold growth. Keeping your roof and gutters clean and well-maintained extends their lifespan and saves you from costly repairs.
  • How often should I clean my gutters?
    Gutters should be cleaned at least twice a year, typically in the spring and fall, to remove debris and ensure proper water flow.
  • Can you clean my roof without causing damage? We've heard about soft washing and are curious if you use this method on roofs?
    We understand your concerns about roof cleaning and yes, we utilize a technique called soft washing for roof cleaning. Soft washing is a gentle and effective method that involves using low-pressure water combined with specialized cleaning solutions to remove dirt, algae, moss, and other contaminants from your roof. This approach ensures thorough cleaning without causing any damage to your roofing materials, including shingles. Unlike high-pressure washing, which could potentially harm the roof's integrity, soft washing is designed to be safe and non-intrusive. Our experienced professionals are trained in the proper application of soft washing methods, and they take into consideration the specific type of roofing material you have. Soft washing cleans, refreshens, enhances the appearance of your home and also extends the lifespan of your roofing system.
  • What is paver sealing?
    Paver sealing involves applying a protective layer to paver surfaces to enhance their appearance, prevent weed growth, and resist staining.
  • How often should pavers be sealed?
    Paver sealing typically lasts 2-3 years. Factors such as weather exposure and usage can impact the duration. We recommend resealing when you notice water absorption or faded color.
  • Can I clean my pavers without professional help?
    Basic cleaning can be done by homeowners, but for deep cleaning and stain removal, professionals can provide more effective results using specialized equipment and techniques.
  • Why should I clean my solar panels?
    Dust, dirt, bird droppings, and debris can reduce the efficiency of solar panels. Regular cleaning ensures optimal energy production.
  • How often do solar panels need cleaning?
    Cleaning frequency depends on the environment. In areas with less rainfall, panels might need cleaning every 6-12 months. In areas with more dust and pollution, cleaning every 3-6 months might be necessary.
  • Do I need professional cleaning for solar panels?
    While you can clean panels yourself, professional cleaning ensures proper techniques and avoids accidental damage. We use soft brushes and deionized water to prevent scratches and mineral deposits.
  • What is pressure washing?
    Pressure washing is a cleaning method that uses high-pressure water to remove dirt, grime, mold, mildew, and other debris from surfaces such as driveways, sidewalks, decks, fences, patios, siding, and more.
  • Is Pressure Washing Safe For My Property?
    Yes, pressure washing is safe for most exterior surfaces when performed by a professional. Our technicians at Orlando Roofs & Gutters are trained to use the appropriate pressure and cleaning agents to protect your property and avoid damage.
  • How Often Should I Have My Property Pressure Washed?
    In Orlando, Florida, the humid subtropical climate and frequent rainfall can contribute to the buildup of dirt, mold, and mildew on various surfaces. Here are some recommendations: Driveways and Walkways: Twice a year might be beneficial. Once before the wet season, typically in spring, and once after the rainy season, in fall. Decks and Patios: Orlando's climate encourages the growth of mold and mildew. Pressure washing decks and patios twice a year, especially in preparation for summer and after the rainy season, can help maintain their appearance and safety. Siding and Exterior Walls: The humid conditions in Orlando can lead to rapid accumulation of dirt and mildew. Consider pressure washing siding every 1-2 years to keep it looking fresh and clean. Fences: Because of the moisture-rich environment, pressure washing fences every 1-2 years is recommended in Orlando to prevent discoloration and buildup. Keep in mind that these recommendations are approximate and can vary based on individual circumstances. Factors like the level of shade your property receives, proximity to trees, and the type of surfaces you have can impact the frequency of pressure washing.
  • What Is The Difference Between Pressure Washing And Soft Washing?
    Pressure washing uses high-pressure water spray to clean surfaces, while soft washing uses a low-pressure system and specialized cleaning agents to gently remove dirt, grime, and stains without causing damage. Soft washing is typically used for more delicate surfaces such as roofs and siding.
