The Importance of Regular Roof Cleaning With SoftWashing

Monday, May 16, 2022

Roof washing is a technical process that if done by a professional can save your roof and make it look new again. SoftWashing can safely and effectively improve the exterior appearance of your roof and solve the often recurring issues of Gloeocapsa Magma (GM) or “Black Algae”, mold, moss and other bacteria and infestations. Not only do black stains and streaks on your roof’s asphalt shingles make your roof look dirty and reduce your home’s curb appeal, they can destroy your shingles and shorten your roof’s lifespan. Here are four reasons why roof cleaning with SoftWashing is important:

Reason #1:  SoftWashing Increases The Lifespan Of Your Roof

By helping to prevent deterioration to your shingles and giving your roof a fresh and clean appearance, you will save time, money and the hassle of a roof replacement. We use an environmentally friendly,  biodegradable formula that does not cause damage and actually increases the lifespan of your shingles. Importantly, we will never walk on a roof to clean it as this may cause damage to the shingles or tiles. In addition, by caring for your roof and helping to avoid deterioration and damage to the shingles, roof manufacturers encourage SoftWashing to help extend your roof’s life.

Reason #2:  SoftWashing Kills Bacteria & Microorganisms At Their Root

SoftWashing not only cleans surface areas, it eliminates the microorganisms that might be living on your roof and exterior which cause the problem to begin with, supplying an option that lasts 4 to 6 times longer compared to standard pressure washing (pressure washing only blasts away what’s on the surface, leaving behind the potential for the quick return of algae, mold and other growth -- it doesn't solve the origin of the infestation, so the problem returns again and again).

Reason #3:  Health Advantages

SoftWashing eliminates mold, mildew, fungi and algae, which are all on the “Top 10 Allergy Irritants list,” helping keep your family safe, healthy and free of these irritants.

Reason #4:  Restores Curb Appeal

SoftWashing your roof not only rids your roof of unsightly black stains and streaks, it kills the organic growth that erodes your shingles and tiles, it revives inorganic surfaces like tile, metal and powder coatings, increasing your roof’s lifespan and keeping it looking like new.
