Having a dirty, discolored roof is not only unappealing from the ground but it can also damage your property. This is because a grimy roof attracts and absorbs sunlight more easily, causing the interior of your home to heat up and raise your summer energy costs.

Soft washing uses cleaning solutions to remove mildew, bacteria, algae, moss, and other organic stains from your roof. The solution is mixed with water and sprayed on the surface of your roof, and then allowed to soak in and kill these organisms. The cleaning chemicals used in soft washing are environmentally friendly and do not hurt plants or animals, making them safe to use around your home.

Maintains the Health of Your Family

Those dark stained roofs can be hiding harmful bacteria, fungus, and mildew that can affect your family’s health. Soft washing removes these and other contaminants, keeping your family safe.

The cleaning solutions used in soft washing penetrate the cracks and nooks of your roof, working their way into undersides of shingles and tiles to dissolve built-up residue. Soft washing also uses low pressure to rinse off, eliminating the risk of loosening or damaging brittle tiles or removing damage granules.

Soft washing also eliminates pest habitats, preventing birds, ants, roaches, and other unwanted insects from making their homes in your home. Dirty, damaged roofs are far more attractive to these pests than clean, well-maintained roofs. This makes it easier for them to get inside your house and cause damage to your belongings. Keeping your roof clean with soft washing can keep pests away for a longer period of time. This can save you money on pest control and may even extend the life of your roof.

Extends the Life of Your Roof

Soft washing utilizes cleaning chemicals that are able to remove tough stains without damaging the surface. These cleaners are environmentally friendly and safe for the landscape around your home. They also do not damage protective coatings on surfaces such as cedar shake siding, stucco, coquina, screens, lanais, enclosures, outdoor rooted plants, and vinyl sidings.

A dirty roof can rob your home of its natural beauty and reduce its lifespan by causing it to age prematurely. Organic growth such as moss, mildew, algae, and mold can eat away at the shingles, degrading them and making them more prone to leaks and rot.

Black streaks on the roof are a common sign of Gloeocapsa Magma (algae). It thrives in hot and humid conditions and spreads quickly, causing your shingles to lose their ability to reflect UV rays. Soft washing is the only way to remove this and other unwanted substances without damaging your shingles or voiding your warranty.

Keeps Pests Away

Soft washing uses low-pressure cleaning chemicals and a variety of solutions to safely remove mildew, bacteria, algae, moss, or any organic stains from roof surfaces. The cleaning agents contain biocides that kill any mold or mildew spores, fungi, or other microorganisms on the surface of your roof.

The biocides penetrate into the tiles and destroy any root systems of these organisms, preventing further damage to your roof or allowing them to grow back. In addition, the biocides used in soft washing also help to eliminate any odors and stains from your roof.

In general, soft washing is much safer than power or pressure washing as it avoids the need for scrapers and high-pressure water. Moreover, it works well on more delicate exterior surfaces like shingles, cedar shake siding, cobblestone, and wood panel siding. Additionally, it is effective in cleaning outdoor rooted plants, screens, enclosures, lanais, and screened windows. It also eliminates any accumulated dirt and grime from the crevices around doors and windows.
