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.

 Roof cleaning - Soft Wash or Soft Washing method is the process to remove dirt, algae and moss from roofs. Roof cleaning can extend the duration of a roof's ability to function. Algae and other types of build-up often form on parts of roofs that are shaded, and can reduce a roof's life expectancy. The presence of soot, dirt, or biomass can affect how much sunlight is absorbed by a roof and thus the amount of heat a building absorbs.

 The 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.
The good news is that these stains (micro organisms) can be safely removed. Our Soft Wash method and biodegradable cleaning solutions are safe for your roofing material, and results are amazing. In fact, we use less pressure to apply our special cleaning solutions that you get from your garden hose.

 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.
