Don’t Neglect your Roof!

Every property that our Super Pressure team inspects all have one thing in common, you guessed it, a roof! Everyone relies on this feature of the home to protect them, but if you don’t protect your roof by keeping it clean, it’s not going to last as long as you think. Soft pressure washing is the best way to preserve your roof.

What is the biggest threat to your roof you ask? A bacterial growth called Gloeocapsa Magma. Gloeocapsa magma is a species of cyanobacteria. Cyanobacteria are an ancient line of photosynthesizing bacteria, which photolyze water generating oxygen gas. It’s very similar to algae as it clings to outdoor surfaces, which leaves those unsightly black stains.

How do I get rid of it? Gloeocapsa Magma is quite stubborn. The only way to remove this bacteria without harming your roofs features is by soft pressure washing it. Soft washers combine proven cleaning chemicals and water at a low-pressure to clean your roof spotless. Conventional pressure washing isn’t a appropriate solution for roofs. The power is way too much for your roofs features to safely handle, which means that you might damage your roofing in the process of trying to cleaning it.

Are you sick and tired of seeing the same dirty, mouldy pathways when you drive home? Well worry no more because here is a couple of ways to get rid of it brought to you by Super Pressure Cleaning. Mold tends to grow on concrete surfaces like pathways. You should remove this mold quickly as the longer you leave it, the harder it becomes to remove.

Elbow Grease

One of the hardest methods to kill mold is with pure elbow grease. What you’re going to need to grab is a metal scrubbing brush or anything with hard bristles. Bunnings has a great range of scrub brushes that will be perfect for the job.You can also use scouring powder to help remove mold with a scrub brush. Firstly, rinse the area thoroughly with clean water, from either a hose or a spray bottle.

Steam Cleaning

You can also kill mold and remove it from concrete by using a quality steam cleaner. Firstly, Load the water into the steam cleaner and give time for the machine to warm up. Next, blast the mold with spurts of hot steam. Lastly rinse the area with clean water from your garden hose. Try to wear protective clothing and enclosed shoes to avoid direct contact with the steam. Steam can produce serious burns on bare skin.

The water produced after rinsing the surface will contain mold spores. It is recommended that you wear protective gloves and a mouth and nose mask to prevent inhaling these deadly mould spores. Make sure the area stays wet to prevent the mould spores from becoming airborne. Wash your work clothes immediately after finishing the job to kill any spores on your clothing.
