Cleaning Shingle Stains

  • Transcript

    LESLIE: Bill in Utah needs some help cleaning some shingles. What can we do for you? What’s on them?

    BILL: Well, here’s my deal: I’ve got a home that I took a swamp cooler off the roof, made the switch to central air and I put in an attic fan up there.

    TOM: OK.

    BILL: But over the years, when I had the swamp cooler, (audio gap) to water run off and I had some – I’ve got some – a wet streak running down my brown, asphalt shingles.

    TOM: Mm-hmm.

    BILL: And I’m just wondering is there anything I can do to get rid of that stain on my roof.

    TOM: Two things: you could try a product called JOMAX – J-o-m-a-x. It’s a cleaner that works very, very well on roofs. It’s available at hardware stores. It’s made by the folks at Zinsser and it’s a concentrate; you mix it up.

    BILL: OK.

    TOM: And is the stain more from the water or from rust?

    BILL: It’s water; hard water.

    TOM: Well, then I think the JOMAX will work perfectly fine for that.

    BILL: OK. Alright. Well, I (inaudible 0:14:30.6) you guys.

    TOM: Alright, Bill. Well, good luck with that project.

    BILL: Alright. Thank you.

    TOM: You’re welcome. Thanks so much for calling us at 888-MONEY-PIT.
