Let’s talk about asphalt roof cleaning and specifically what is non pressure roof cleaning or as it’s also been called, what is soft wash roof cleaning. Basically, what that means is that we do not use a pressure washer on the roof. we appreciate you coming by to learn more about a soft wash, or non pressure roof cleaning.
There are many ways to clean a roof, but not all are safe for the house and most importantly the roof itself! Power washing should not be done when performing a roof cleaning. If a company recommends it, decline their services immediately! power washing is when a contractor will get on your roof with a high pressure power washer and actually use pressurized water to clean your roof.
Applying high pressure water against those shingles on top of your roof is a very poor way to clean the asphalt shingles. It’s not a good way to go about the cleaning. It can destroy the shingles, even if it’s a low pressure roof cleaning. That’s still not a good way to go about it, because if they’re using a pressure washer period, then they’re using some form of pressure. So that’s not a roof cleaning contractor that you probably want to hire because it’s going to do more damage than good.
Another thing that some roof cleaning contractors do is use a surface cleaner to clean roofs. That is a terrible thing to do. Surface cleaning using surface cleaner is specifically designed for cleaning concrete. So you definitely don’t want that on top of your roof. Harsh chemicals will get onto your property, potentially in your home. There are no harsh chemical components in our product.
There’s another method called a pitch, which has a bar that’s connected to a hose and has another bar with pressure washing nozzles at the end. And that would be one of your “low pressure” roof cleaning options. But again, it’s done with a pressure washer and it’s pretty aggressive on the roof. These methods should not be done to any roof.
Our cleaning system is a soft wash roof cleaning method. Now we use a 12 volt electric pump that’s connected to a battery. This pump produces just enough pressure to get our cleaning solution onto your tile or shingle roof. It would be less than a garden hose pressure. It’s just enough to get our cleaning solution on your roof.Safely and gently.
The solution that we use, we mix it up ourselves is unique to our company. The process we use is unique to our company. You’re not going to be able to get our style of roof cleaning services anywhere else. It’s something that we’ve developed. I’ve perfected this roof cleaning process and the different cleaning ratios and cleaners that it takes to get lichen, mold, mildew and dirt off the roof. We just spray our cleaner onto the roof and it eradicates 100 percent the infestations that are growing and helps to prevent vegetation and grime from coming back.
Just so you’re aware, pressure washing may look good, but it actually doesn’t get the deposits of those vegetation off.
