Why Roof Cleaning Is So Important

Monday, May 15, 2023

Roof cleaning is often one of the most overlooked areas of your exterior with many taking an ‘out of sight, out of mind’ mindset. However, having your roof regularly cleaned can save you thousands in the long run as SoftWashing safely and effectively solves the often recurring issues of Gloeocapsa Magma (GM) or “Black Algae,” mold, moss and other bacteria and infestations. We outline the top three reasons why roof cleaning with SoftWash is so important: 

  1. SoftWashing Kills Bacteria & Microorganisms

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. SoftWashing supplies 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). Not to mention, the intense pressure involved in pressure washing often causes damages to shingles and other surfaces.

  1. SoftWashing Increases The Lifespan Of Your Roof

By helping to prevent deterioration of your shingles and giving your roof a fresh and clean appearance, you will save time, money and the hassle of a roof replacement. 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.

  1. SoftWashing Ensures Curb Appeal

SoftWashing your roof and property exterior can add instant curb appeal to your exterior by removing unsightly dirt stains and algae so that your home’s exterior is clean from top to bottom. With SoftWashing, your roof will look great, paint colors will be vibrant and sharp again and garage doors and doorframes will welcome you home all while increasing your roof’s lifespan and keeping it looking like new.
