Soft Wash Roof Cleaning: How to Soft Wash Roofs

Soft wash cleaning is a unique exterior cleaning technique that employs a low-pressure stream and specialized cleaning solutions. This system generally utilizes a pressure washer fitted with a broad spray or a special low-pressure nozzle and a biodegradable cleaning agent to effectively remove dirt, stains, mold, and other unwelcome organisms from your roof. The cleaning agent, a biodegradable chemical solution, distinguishes soft washing from traditional pressure washing, which forcefully removes dirt from the surface. This solution is sprayed over the roof, penetrating the dirt and breaking it down from the inside.

After application, our cleaners allow the biodegradable solution to sit for a period to eradicate mold, mildew, bacteria, moss, fungus, and more before it is rinsed off. This method does not damage your home’s exterior surfaces or plants.

Why Soft Washing Is Safer for Your Roof

Roofing experts, including our team at Elite Power Washing, prefer soft washing because it avoids the damage high pressure can cause. High pressure can dislodge granules from shingles, but the gentle nature of soft washing cleans shingles meticulously without causing any damage or displacing the shingles.

Soft washing is particularly effective on shingles, clay tiles, concrete tiles, metal roofs, and more. It is especially beneficial for concrete tiles as it cleans without stripping any sealant or glaze from the surface. We advocate for soft-wash roof cleaning as a safe and effective cleaning method.

Why Should You Soft-Wash Your Roof?

If black streaks cover your shingles, it is likely due to Gloeocapsa magma (algae). This algae thrives in warm, humid conditions and can significantly damage your roof. A roof plagued by algae loses its ability to reflect UV light, leading to rapid deterioration of the shingles.

Soft washing removes algae and other undesirable substances, preserving your shingles’ integrity and avoiding the voidance of your warranty. Opting for a soft wash ensures effective cleaning while maintaining the roof’s structural integrity, preventing costly repairs or premature replacement.

Benefits of Soft Washing

Choosing professional soft washing over pressure or power washing your roof offers multiple benefits:

  • Utilizes eco-friendly cleaning solutions
  • Minimizes the risk of damage to landscaping
  • Extends your roof’s lifespan
  • Reduces the risk of siding damage
  • Saves money
  • Most importantly, it eliminates harmful germs, safeguarding your family’s health and well-being.
