What comes to mind when you think of roof cleaning? Taking off broken tree limbs and removing leaves and pine needles are obvious choices. However, these actions aren’t enough to give your roof a thorough cleaning job. To get things really clean, you need the services of a professional. In particular, you need to hire someone who specializes in house washing and roof cleaning. At Eye Do Windows / AAA Pressure Cleaning, we’d like to share five reasons why you should only work with an experienced and professional roof cleaning service for your home:
Roof Cleaning is a Difficult Job
The process of roof cleaning is a difficult job. In order to successfully clean your roof, you must find the right products and make sure that they’re by trustworthy providers. Failure to do this could result in roof damage that forces an expensive repair or replacement. While using the right chemicals and procedure won’t harm your roof, using the wrong ones could. Hiring reputable professionals will ensure that the cleaning will extend the life of your roof rather than shortening it.
Prevent Roof Algae
Roof algae certainly has a negative esthetic effect on your roof, but it’s much more than that. The algae actually live and feed off of your shingles. More specifically, it feeds off the limestone filler that’s commonly used in shingle production. The algae will take years off of the lifespan of your roof if it’s ignored. Hesitation to regularly clean your roof can lead to rapid deterioration of the shingles, especially if the algae is visible.
Not having your roof cleaned regularly can have multiple negative effects on not only the roof, but your home in general. It can lower the home’s energy efficiency causing a massive increase in air conditioning bills as shingles help block UV rays. It could also force you into a roof replacement much early than expected which could be costly
Roof Cleaning is Worth the Money
Some homeowners may look at roof cleaning and ask whether it’s worth the money. Paying to have your roof cleaned is much cheaper than a full roof replacement which could be the result of roof neglect. Considering what you may have to spend to either repair your roof or completely replace your roof, a regular roof cleaning is unquestionably the less expensive option.
You May Still Need a Cleaning Even If Algae Isn’t Visible
Many homeowners may look at their roofs and not seeing any algae, decide their roof is clean enough and they don’t need a regular cleaning. This is a common mistake that can end up being very costly. In its earliest stages of existence, algae is completely invisible which means that it can be growing on your roof even though you can’t see it. So even though it appears as though you don’t need a thorough roof cleaning, you may still need one. It’s recommended that you have a roof inspection every three years to ensure that it doesn’t become a problem. The earlier you catch the algae growing on your roof, the better off you’ll be.
Another misconception is that spot cleaning can do the trick. While it may seem as though the algae is located on just one area of your roof, it may actually be affecting your entire roof. To ensure this doesn’t happen, it’s recommended that you take preventative measures with a thorough cleaning.
Two Types of Roof Cleaning
There are two different types of roof cleaning that can help to protect your roof; pressure cleaning and soft washing. Pressure cleaning uses highly pressurized water to spray off mold, algae, dirt, and grime. While this type of cleaning is very effective for metal or concrete roofs, it has the potential to cause damage to shingles. Soft washing is the process of using chemicals to remove harmful growths on the roof. Hiring a professional to clean your roof will ensure the right method and right materials are being used to clean your roof without damaging your home.

None of us would let a stranger inside our home without an assurance that he is trustworthy, so why would we let an unknown window cleaner into our homes? Your safety and that of your property should be your #1 consideration when choosing a window cleaning company.
Before choosing a window cleaning contractor, make sure that your contractor has a verified reputation in your community. Ask your window cleaner to provide local references or testimonials. Choosing a contractor that is backed by an established company will also help guarantee a high level of accountability.
1. First and foremost is the company licensed and insured?
Eye Do Windows carries an Alabama State license, as well as individual licenses for the following cities - Gulf Shores, Orange Beach, Foley, Elberta, Magnolia Springs, and Fairhope. We also have a $2,000,000 liability insurance policy. Any of these documents can be provided upon request. Most companies that price cleanings dramatically cheaper do NOT carry this, which is usually why they can price a lot less.
2. How long has the company been in business?
We've been in business since 2006.
3. Do employees undergo criminal background checks and drug testing?
All our employees are required to pass a background check, as well as a drug screen before employment is offered. NO employee is offered employment until these steps are taken. This is to help keep the work environment more safe and professional.
4. Do they have the right equipment for the job?
You can tell a lot about a service provider by the equipment they use and how they treat their tools. We use a state of the art process called deionized water. When water is deionized, minerals are removed, giving you streak-free, sparkling clean windows. What really makes this process unique, is that deionization essentially turns water into a magnet for dirt and grime, eliminating the need toxic chemical cleansers. By using our specialized tools, we will clean window frames and surrounds as part of the process, so you get additional cleaning. Our water-fed poles can safely reach difficult places - even up to 4 stories high, typically without the need of ladders or lifts.
5. How often should I get my windows cleaned?
We recommend at least having exterior windows cleaned at the minimum 6 months to prevent any mineral deposits and other build up on the windows. Customers that live on the water should consider doing every 3 months since they are at risk for hard water stains.
6. Do you have a quality guarantee?
Eye Do Windows guarantees the quality of its workmanship and attention to detail with every window cleaning job. In the unlikely situation of you being unsatisfied with the window cleaning work, please contact us within two days of the job being completed so that it can be rectified straight away, at no additional cost.
7. Can you provide customer references?
A window cleaner that provides excellent customer service will have a long following of happy customers. Ask your window cleaner if he is able to provide references from satisfied customers.

We are using a revolutionary method of cleaning windows, which is safer, longer lasting, and produces better results! Our water fed pole systems allow us to continue guaranteeing one-of-a-kind results, while eliminating hazardous chemicals and other unsafe factors!
Water fed pole window cleaning is a soapless method of cleaning windows. Tap water is filtered through a pure water system and completely purified, which is then fed through a tube, attached to a brush at the end of a pole. The specialized window cleaning brush is used to scrub the glass; it lightly agitates the surface and breaks down dirt, salt, and mildew. The pure, deionized water will attract the dirt and lift it from almost any surface, eliminating any need for soap, leaving your windows streak-free and shining.
HOW WILL THIS BENEFIT ME?
The white and brown spots on your windows are stains from hard water.
Hard water is water with a high mineral content, such as calcium. When hard water evaporates, it leaves calcium or sodium (salt) remains behind, causing hard water spots to appear. These stains can also develop from a number of other causes, such as oxidation from metal screens or run-off from concrete building materials.
The sooner you attack the problem ,the better!
We have a stain removal solution that can not only safely and effectively remove stains, but with proper maintenance also prevent them from coming back. Add hard water stain removal to your services today and get rid of those ugly stains for good.
