Outstanding in every area. We hired Jorge for a full day of power washing, gutter cleaning and window cleaning in preparation for our house sale. He was very responsive, turned up on time, did a thorough job and heard my special requests and acted on them with no questions asked.

I'm the Clerk of my church, and Corey is cleaning the interior -- all regular cleaning (vacuuming, dusting, bathrooms, entry floor tile) as well as washing all interior relites and windows. He is thorough, great attention to detail, quick, efficient, versatile and comes with a love of whatever he is doing and desire to satisfy the customer. I would highly recommend him to any business or homeowner.

Criss and his crew took out three huge cedar trees for us, built a new cedar fence and a new picket fence. They were so quick and efficient when removing the cedars. We were expecting our yard to look like a warzone after those trees came down, but Criss and his crew did a great job cleaning up after. The new fences look great. We are very happy with the services Criss provided and will definitely call him again in the future.

Marvin was awesome. I hired him to do a variety of jobs for me in my house. From working on my roof to inside the house patching up a closet and replacing a basement window and securing a new lock on my door. He is reliable, focused and his work is good and he is a very nice man. I would recommend Marvin to my friends and family and I will hire him again for some more future projects.

Enrique has done several jobs for me and I've always been impressed with his quality of work and attention to detail. He's painted the interior & exterior of our 6 bedroom 4200 sq ft home at amazing rates. He also stained the railing system and did an amazing Rustoleum Restore project on the actual deck. We look forward to continue using him for additional projects for years to come. His prices are very reasonable and his crew has always been professional. I'm confident you'll be pleased if you choose him - and believe it or not I don't have any negative feedback!

Thanks to Damian, I was able to get my garage cleaned out and some furniture taken out of the house that I needed gone. He was over within an hour after I contacted him. I’m so happy with his work and nice personality, also promptness. I will definitely contact him again in the near future to help me with some other projects I need help with!

Leo did a great job in cleaning up all gutters and roof. After cleaning all gutters, he did a thorough job of cleaning dirt from floor, walls and windows which made me really happy. He took photos and shared the state of roof and gutters. I would highly recommend him based on his quality of work and punctuality

We hired Nick to paint the interior of our 2200 sqft home (tri-level). Not only was he meticulous about his work, he is not satisfied with doing under par work. He gave us a competitive bid (we had a total of 10 bids) for the enormous job, and he completed in a very timely manner, respecting that we were still living in home. He not only did he paint, he patched, textured and fixed what the previous painter messed up, he fixed the caulking in my 2nd bathroom. He made sure that our house was cleaned up and all paint supplies were out of reach which is very important since we have children and pets. He was very easy to communicate with and very easy to get in contact with. He is very knowledgeable regarding his profession. We are definitely using him for our exterior and would highly recommend him.

Tyler was responsive, punctual and such a hard worker! He beat every quote and the quality was superb. I would hire him again without reservation. He really cared about doing the job right even if it required extra time on his part. He was professional and my kids loved watching him too! He did our windows (inside, outside, screens and skylights), pressure washed our driveway and patio and he knew not to pressure wash our trex deck (I did not know this) so he hand cleaned the deck, cleaned our roof for moss and cleaned our gutters. Our house looks better than it ever did and definitely is ready to sale now. Thank you Tyler!

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

Why is it important to clean your gutters?

Rain gutters, those easily-forgotten trenches that hang off the edge of your roof, protect your roof, walls and foundation from excess rainwater. When they get clogged with leaves, sticks and other wind-blown debris, they can no longer direct water away from your walls and foundation, and may become homes for pests and insects. They also become heavy enough to pull away from the house, preventing proper rainwater drainage and spoiling the appearance of your home. Experts recommend inspecting and cleaning your gutters twice a year, once in spring and once in fall, as part of your regular landscaping schedule. Gutter cleaning and maintenance is a fairly easy DIY job for some homeowners, especially on one-story homes. However, professional gutter cleaners have ladders tall enough to safely reach rain gutters, as well as the necessary tools to clean out the downspouts. Most gutter cleaning professionals can also make any necessary quick repairs.

Why do I need to clean my roof?

Over time, algae, moss, lichen, dirt and even salt (if you’re near the ocean) can build up on your roof. These buildups can affect the look and function of your roof unless removed. The buildup of organic materials such as moss on a shingle roof can prevent water from sloughing off as it normally would. Trapped water can rot the roof or cause early deterioration of your shingles. Even if you don’t have a shingle roof, moss and lichen absorb water, and that wet material adds weight and stress to your roof — as well as providing a home for insects and other pests, and collecting dirt. For reflective, cool roofs that redirect heat away from the home, algae and moss growths can hamper their ability to deflect the sun, which can affect utility bills. Visually, moss, dirt and algae growths on a roof can have a negative effect on perceived home value and curb appeal. For example, black algae streaks on your roof may cause a potential homebuyer to assume that the roof might need repair or replacement, when it only needs to be cleaned.

Can a roof be cleaned?

Yes roofs can be cleaned, and yes, it’s a real thing. Roof cleaning may actually be a wise investment to prolong the life of your roof. Overgrowth of moss, grime, lichen or algae can all shorten the life of your roof. If you have black streaks growing on your roof, they are likely caused by gloeocapsa magma algae spores that have landed on your roof and taken up residence. Once the algae has grown into streaks, the organism has usually been growing for several months and it’s high time to have it removed. If you live in a rainy part of the country, such as the Pacific Northwest, there’s a good chance you’ll find moss growing on your roof at some point. The northern part of your roof, as well as any parts that remain shaded all day, will provide a wet, cool haven for moss to flourish. Unfortunately this water-absorbing moss can damage your shingle roof, leading to rot if not removed. Beyond roof health and function, a clean roof can boost your curb appeal and potentially boost your home’s resale value. The national average for roof cleaning costs ranges between $270 and $350, although prices can be higher depending on how large your roof is, how steep your roof is, and what type of cleaning is necessary. Typically pros use either a pressure wash or chemical wash (made with a concentrated bleach solution) to remove algae, lichen, moss and dirt.

What chemicals are used to clean roofs?

Roof cleaning is done to remove moss, lichen, algae, and buildup of other grime and dirt. There are several methods for roof cleaning, which can include a chemical soft wash, pressure washing, low-pressure washing and hand washing. When a chemical soft wash is used, a bleach mixture is sprayed onto the roof. The bleach-based solution is absorbed by the algae or moss, which dies from exposure to the chemical. The roof is then sprayed with a low-pressure rinse of water, which loosens the now-dead material, allowing it to slide off the roof.

For homeowners, the Asphalt Roofing Manufacturers Association recommends a mixture of 50 percent laundry-strength liquid chlorine bleach and 50 percent water. Professional roof cleaning companies will use an industrial mixture that is still safe but may be more effective in eliminating algae and moss growths. Asphalt shingle roofs are the most common type of roof, but each roofing material will have its own cleaning needs, so it’s best to consult with your roofing pro before diving in. Don’t do it yourself unless you can safely navigate your roof, the chemicals and a sprayer system. When in doubt, leave it to the pros.

How much does it cost to clean a roof?

The national average for roof cleaning costs ranges between $270 and $350. Factors that can affect the cost to clean your roof are the height of your house, the size and pitch (steepness) of your roof, and the complexity of your roof’s design and accessibility. Geographic location also plays a role in roof cleaning costs as regional labor rates and area costs to do business will vary. There are several ways to clean a roof. The most common is pressure washing. Industrial pressure washers can spray over 3,000 pounds per square inch (psi) of water — which is much too powerful for roof cleaning, and may tear off shingles and damage your roof. Confirm that the roof-cleaning pro you choose will only use a low-pressure sprayer to protect your roof investment. For large algae or moss growths, pros often recommend a combination of low-pressure washing with a bleach-based chemical solution. This is referred to soft washing and should handily remove any growths taking over your roof.
