Myth: If you use a pressure washer to clean your roof, all the shingles on your roof will keep their integrity

This is definitely a misconception. It is true that most roofs are very sustainable, made to weather the elements, but a pressure washer in the hands of an ameture can be detrimental to the wellbeing of your roof. If someone is pressure washing a roof, and doing it incorrectly, they can essentially cause early deterioration of the shingles material, shortening the potential lifespan. First of all, forcing water on to your roof in an aggressive manner can wipe away the granules on your roof, reducing their utility. Also, water can get lodged under the roofing shingles creating a hazard for mildew, mold, and other growths that thrive in damp areas.
