What Is Soft Wash Roof Cleaning?

If your roof is experiencing invasive plant growth and build-up, soft washing can prevent that decay and potentially save your roof. And when replacing your roof can cost thousands, this is good news.

Soft washing is a gentle cleaning method that can prolong the lifespan of your roof. It removes organic matter such as moss, bacteria and algae. These types of substances cause lasting damage to your roof if not safely removed.

The first step to cleaning any roof is to get an expert recommendation. At All Surface Cleaning, we offer a free consultation and estimate from one of our roof specialists. They are easy to schedule and our professional experts will answer all your questions and help you determine the best method to care for your roof.

What to Expect From the SoftClean™ Process

At All Surface Cleaning, we employ several techniques in our SoftClean™ process, such as low-pressure washing, air blowing and sweeping. Soft washing is less aggressive than pressure washing and doesn’t damage your shingles in the cleaning process.

First, our expert roof technicians will apply an eco-friendly cleaner to your roof. This cleaner removes stains and effectively neutralizes any organic matter that is growing on your roof.

After several days, we remove the cleaner by delicately sweeping and brushing off the dead moss. If there are any remaining contaminants such as mildew, dirt, or loose debris, we use a low-pressure wash to remove the debris while keeping your roof safe from any damage.

Why Soft Washing May Be Better for Your Roof

Unlike pressure washing, our SoftClean™ process removes microscopic plant growth and prevents it from quickly returning. Soft washing also saves the integrity of your roof by being less intrusive than pressure washing and can save your shingles from deteriorating.

Soft washing can also save you money by preventing the need for roof replacement. Moss growth can often lead homeowners to replace their shingles, but a soft wash can save your roof for a significantly lower cost while broadening its lifespan.

It’s important to note that the frequency of treatments will vary depending on several factors, such as the current condition of your roof and weather patterns in your area. Before deciding on any treatment, book a professional roof technician for recommendations and estimates.
