Roof Cleaning

That’s not dirt on your roof—it’s algae! It’s called Gloeocapsa Magma. This particular type of algae feeds on limestone, a major part of the composition of your roof. It travels from house to house by spores that are carried by the wind. Over time, the mildew and moss slowly work to deteriorate the integrity of your shingles, taking years from the life of your roof and giving your home an old, dirty ugly appearance. If you do not clean it, the stains will darken and spread. Not only does it compromise your shingles, it reduces the value of your home.

IDW can clean your roof using a Soft Washing process where we gently apply environmentally friendly cleaning solutions designed to kill the algae and other bacterial contaminants. We DO NOT pressure wash your roof as that can destroy the shingles. Your roof will look clean and new again! Cleaning your roof is much less expensive than replacing your roof prematurely. Most roof cleanings are under $500 depending on the size of the roof, the level of difficulty and how much area needs cleaned. Replacing your roof can cost thousands.

Have a clean, healthier looking house once again. It’s a completely safe and inexpensive way to restore the curb appeal of your home and maximize your property value.

Our Story

The year was 1992. Keith Kroehler and his wife, Lisa, moved from Minnesota to her hometown of Lima, Ohio. Keith had started a window cleaning company in Minnesota in the late 1980s where he was born and raised in the agricultural industry. But they decided to move closer to Lisa’s family and to a climate that was a little warmer in the winter. Keith worked alone until 1996 when Lisa left her career in television journalism/ marketing and joined her husband in expanding I DO WINDOWS! LLC. After many years of hard work, the company now employs several window cleaners and services clients across Ohio and the greater Fort Wayne area.
