How Does Soft Wash Roof Cleaning Work?

Soft washing is a fantastic way to clean your roof without damaging the material. If you’ve noticed a layer of grime on your roof or black streaks running down your siding, it’s time to get soft-wash roof cleaning!

You deserve top-notch roof cleaning services, and Puget Power Washing, LLC is happy to serve! We provide fast, trustworthy, and effective soft washing and power washing services for our community in Seattle and the surrounding areas.

What Is Soft Washing?

Soft washing utilizes a low-pressure water stream mixed with non-toxic and biodegradable cleaning products. Unlike power or pressure washing, soft washing removes debris and organic material with minimal force.

Soft washing water pressure is similar to the pressure of a regular garden hose. The difference is that we use special tools to reach high nooks and crannies around your home such as your roof, gutters, and siding.

We recommend soft washing method for cleaning tile roofs and roofs made from porous materials such as asphalt shingles and brick.

When Should You Get Soft Washing for Your Roof?

If your roof has black streaks, it’s time to call Puget Power Washing, LLC! These black streaks come from algae called Gloeocapsa magma, a microorganism that thrives in humid conditions. Seattle’s typical weather makes for the perfect breeding ground for this pest.

As the algae spread across your roof, feeding on your roofing material. Eventually, your roof will rot, leading to expensive roof repairs or replacement. A roof infested with Gleocapsa magma can deteriorate quickly, and the algae will drastically shorten your roof’s lifespan.

Preparing Your Home for a Soft Wash

  1. Close all the windows and doors: While our technicians are careful during their work, there is still a chance that our cleaning solution can seep into your home.
  2. Keep pets and children inside: Although we use a safe cleaning solution and quality tools for soft washing, accidents can still happen if kids or pets are moving around while we work.
  3. Clear all obstacles outside your home: For our technicians to do their job safely and efficiently, they need to move around freely. Remove anything that can impede our work, such as chairs, lawn fixtures, toys, etc.
  4. Make sure that you’re reachable: While we try to be independent during our work, there are times when we need to reach you. If you’re not at home during our services, please provide a way to contact you in case of an emergency.
