Roof Cleaning

Is moss a bad thing? When moss grows abundantly, it becomes a heavy blanket on top of your roof that retains water and moisture and leads to rot, bacteria, and mold growth. While not a notable concern for your health, this growth can shorten your roof's lifespan significantly. Roof mold also is an invitation to rodents and critters who feed off the mold and roofing materials.

Holes: Moss can also creep underneath your shingles, tiles, and slates, uprooting them from your roof and causing immense damage. This uprooting can lead to holes, leakage, and your roof's structural degeneration. Even worse, when you do remove the moss from your roof, tiles will then fall back awkwardly after losing the moss structure that once held it up.

How We Can Help: To get rid of moss from your roof we use a medium strength wire brush to scrape the sides and edges of your shingles. This technique causes less damage to your shingles than pressure washing them, but this alone will not keep moss away.

Long term treatment: After all the visible moss is removed there are sill root systems embedded in your roof. To kill the remaining moss we use one of two techniques depending on the time of year. In the wet months we will use a powdered zinc that will be distributed across the ridge lines of your roof. This zinc will kill the remaining moss for 1 year, we recommend yearly maintenance to ensure moss will not return. In the dry season we use what is referred to as a soft wash.

What is Soft washing?

Soft wash is still considered a form of pressure washing, but you can think of it as a branch on the family tree. Soft washing is a low-pressure washing technique that uses a combination of soaps, bleach and water to clean exterior surfaces, such as roofs, siding, fences, driveways and sidewalks, without damaging the surface. This is especially useful when dealing with brittle or hard to clean surfaces.


  1. Pre-wet vegetation around the dirty surface with fresh water. This helps to prevent damage to the vegetation around the surface that is being soft washed.
  2. Add water to the tank. Mix in bleach and surfactant chemical into the tank.
  3. Spray soft wash mix on surface and let dwell for 10 minutes.
  4. After 10 minutes, rinse the surface with water for a new, fresh look.

Pressure Washing: Substances such as mold, mildew, and algae can cause damage to your home and- if left untreated- can cause permanent staining and degradation that may lead to costly repairs down the road. Protect yourself and preserve the investment that you have made in your home by maintaining your house and structures with routine pressure washing. The combination of professional expertise, industry experience, and high-end equipment is the perfect recipe to clean and enhance your property without worry of damage or accident
