SOFT WASH ROOF
When We Say Clean, We Mean Immaculate
What is Soft Wash?
Soft Washing is done by using a balanced method of lower pressure water and applying specialized solutions. Instead of using surface cleaners or spraying water at damagingly high pressure, soft washing allows the cleaning solution to eliminate any mold, algae, or other microorganisms growing in and on your roof. Pressure washing or surface cleaning your roof may take less time, but not only will it damage your roof, it merely treats the issue at surface level. Using our soft wash system in combination with applying the proper solutions, it can actually eliminate organic materials and penetrate deep into the root of the problem, allowing your roof to stay cleaner for longer .

Is Roof Cleaning Really Necessary?
While roofs are meant to be durable and protective, they are prone to algae growth, especially with our hot, humid Florida climate. Living in one of the country’s most humid and moist locations, roofs in Florida are an entirely too welcoming environment for fungi and microbial growth. Generally, starting with spores traveling through the air, mold and mildew occur in those nooks and crannies. That’s right — the black streaks you see on your roof are formed by mold and algae. Soft washing your roof not only removes this algae but also removes any other debris such as leaves, dirt, branches, and golf balls! There are three primary reasons why roof cleaning is necessary.
1. Increases Curb Appeal
Have you noticed over the past few years your roof looks "darker?" Or maybe you've noticed streaks running down your metal roof? Soft washing your roof will give your whole house a new, brighter perspective and will make it appear as if you've taken years off your roof.
If you belong to an HOA, they may actually require you to maintain a clean roof. Scheduling your roof cleaning and staying on a maintenance plan will ensure you don’t receive the dreaded HOA “nasty gram” in the mail and will keep you in your neighbors’ good graces. With our specialized post treatments, and maintenance packages we offer, you will never get an HOA letter again!
If you ever decide to sell your home, curb appeal is key. Buyers want a home which looks as gorgeous outside as it does inside, and a clean roof certainly has the well-maintained vibe a buyer is looking for.
2. It can increase your roof’s lifespan.
A new roof is a substantial investment, so of course you don’t want to have to replace your roof any sooner than necessary. Regular roof cleaning can increase your roof’s lifespan. Without regular cleaning and maintenance, that mold and algae can cause harmful, long lasting affects. By having your roof cleaned, you can extend its life expectancy.
3. It keeps the roof energy-efficient.
Having your roof cleaned regularly will keep it in good shape so it remains an efficient barrier between living spaces and the outdoors. A streak-free roof also reflects more sunlight, keeping your home cooler in the summer. Your air conditioner won’t have to run as often, which is good for your wallet and for the planet.
