Portland Soft Wash Roof Cleaning Services

Are you concerned about moss, lichen, or algae damaging your roof? Soft washing is a gentle and effective option for cleaning your roof, removing harmful organic matter without abrasive effects. This method isn’t suitable for every home, but if your roof needs a more delicate approach as most roofs should, soft washing might be the right choice.

Our SoftClean™ Process

All Surface Cleaning Company offers SoftClean™, our specialized soft washing process. This method combines various gentle techniques—air blowing, brooming, and soft washing—to effectively address your moss problem.

How Does Soft Washing Work?

One of our skilled roofing technicians will apply a biodegradable cleaner to your roof. The solution is left for several days attack harmful organic matter and ugly stains on your roof’s surface.

On a subsequent visit, we sweep brush and rinse the larger, dead moss away. In some cases, the technician may use a low-pressure wash to perform the rinse to ensure all loose materials are carefully removed.

The Benefits of Soft Washing Your Roof

Soft washing is one of the least intrusive methods for cleaning your roof. It is ideal for asphalt roofs, especially older ones, where shingles might not withstand more aggressive cleaning methods. This process was developed to remove moss, algae, and stains without damaging your shingles or compromising their warranty. Soft washing is a delicate and effective method for removing organic material from your roof.

Is Soft Washing Right for My Roof?

Left unchecked, moss can root into your roof and compromise its ability to protect your home from the elements. Microorganism damage can significantly reduce your roof’s lifespan and diminish its curb appeal. If you have algae or moss build-up and are concerned about damage during cleaning, soft washing may be a good solution.

A professional roofing estimator can assess your roof and recommend the best cleaning option to extend its life. Soft washing isn’t suitable for every roof, so a professional onsite review is essential. We can also recommend moss preventatives.
