Power Washing vs Soft Washing
Problem – Power washing or pressure washing is the use of high pressure water to remove mold, algae, lichen, moss, and other contaminants from a surface. It will produce enough pressure to cause significant damage to any surface including vinyl, aluminum, concrete, stone, brick and especially roofing material. High pressure power washing machines, even small electric power washers, can cause serious, irreversible damage when not used properly.
Solution – Specialized Accessories & Techniques have been developed to create what is called Soft Washing or Soft Wash. This involves the use of a variety of cleaning solutions to lift and remove the contaminants from siding and asphalt shingle roofing materials. The process consists of applying a cleaning solution & then rinsing away the unwanted material while using only low pressure.
Soft washing method is safe for use on dryvit, EIFS, stucco, vinyl, aluminum, wood, roofing materials and just about every other delicate material. Trex and other synthetic or semi-synthetic decking materials clean up incredibly well with our process.
Soft washing - Asphalt Roof Cleaning (click here to see our 4 step process)
streaks that are staining the roof are actually a bacteria called
Gloeocapsa Magma. This is the main culprit for most of the
roof staining in Michigan. There are a few more culprits that also
grow up on roofs making a mess of things. Roof top organisms like
mildew and algae are unsightly but not as destructive as some of the
more aggressive bacteria and fungus. Moss and Lichens also grow where
destructive growth has been started by the fungal growths. These algae,
mold, mildew, bacteria, lichen and moss directly decompose and break
down roofing materials.
Asphalt roof cleaning is a sound choice in extending the lifespan of your roof. The build-up of algae, lichen and moss will damage your asphalt shingles, resulting in an early roof replacement. The Asphalt Roof Manufactures Association highly recommends regular cleaning and maintenance of your roof. The choice to maintain your roof’s surface should be an important and informed decision. If left untreated, the shingles will accumulate more organic growth and retain excessive moisture, causing deterioration and decomposition. The valleys of your roof are especially vulnerable to deterioration due to the channeling of rain water, creating a breeding ground for the organisms. Essentially, a roof that retains moisture is a roof that will eventually fail.
