Sodium Percarbonate Rates Best and Safest Roof Cleaner, Study Says
Green Cleaners USA, one of the nation’s leading distributors of green cleaning and laundry products, has released the results of an extensive study and testing of roof cleaning products and cleaning processes.
The algae, mildew, mold, and black streaks that embeds in roofs everywhere are at best unsightly, but more importantly the presence of these airborne and environmental contaminates harms the roof. The traditional remedy for these conditions has been to use a combination of chlorine and tri sodium phosphate mixed into water and applied to the roof, followed by a high pressure washing at 2,000 to 3,500 psi.
The study compared the traditional roof cleaning process using the traditional chemicals versus the emerging green method of roof cleaning using 100% green sodium percarbonate “aka” oxygen bleach and a low pressure rinsing process.
There are many health and environmental problems associated with the use of chlorine but this study focused on the effects chlorine has on roofing materials and the inevitable contamination of the surroundings. There is no documented evidence of damage to roofing materials treated with chlorine, but there is much evidence of environmental damage when chlorine comes in contact with surface soil, plants, grass, and landscaping. When the roof is washed the chlorine is washed down to whatever is below and around it. The use of high pressure washing was found to do a great deal of damage and elimination of the granules on the shingle and to the shingle itself.
There are absolutely no health or environmental risks of any kind associated with the use of sodium percarbonate / oxygen bleach. The green roof cleaning method using sodium percarbonate was found to deeply penetrate and kill all algae, mildew, mold, and moss regardless of the magnitude of the problem. The sodium percarbonate solution begins to oxygenate and deeply clean upon contact with the roof to remove and lift all contaminates to the surface after about 20 minutes. After the 20 minute activation period, a thorough low pressure rinse of the roof leaves the surface completely clean with absolute no harm to anything. The sodium percarbonate rinsed from the roof is actually beneficial to all plants, grass, and landscaping as it kills liverwort, moss, fungus, and algae.
According to the study manager, “the sodium percarbonate roof cleaning process produces amazing results with no ill effects of any kind to anything making it the process of the future.”
