Soft washing means applying cleansers at a low pressure to your roof and afterward carefully rinsing away the contaminants with clean water. Unlike power washing, soft washing causes less damage to your home and helps it remain clean for a longer period of time. There's no need to remove any screens, and there's less danger of damaging windows and seals around the windows with this method.
Since your home is one of your greatest financial investments, taking care of it should be a major priority. Your roof is an important componant of your home, with soft washing you can insure your roof stays in tip-top condition.
Black streaks, fire moss, and bacteria not only make homes look unpleasant, they can cause damage to your roof. For exapmple, fire moss (when left untreated) can lift shingles allowing the weather to infiltrate the seal and shingles which can lead to water damage and necessitating a roof repair over time.
To safely remove harmful growths without damaging your roof, soft washing is the best option. Other options such as pressure washing can harm your roof and prompt costly repairs, while soft washing is a safe, biodegradable option for removing harmful growths.
The Main Benefits Of Soft Washing your roof:
1. Curb Appeal
If you want your roof to look beautiful, a soft wash is just what you need. After some time, bacteria and algae can grow on your roof. Soft washing, applying an eco-friendly biodegradable treatment, will remove these organisms as well as any ugly stains they cause, thus restoring your home to its previous beauty.
2. Money Savings
Dirty rooftops tend to be darker which draw in more sunlight than clean roofs do, leading to higher electric bills. A rooftop that has been soft washed can actually help lower you cooling costs. Some homeowners have replaced their entire roof when soft washing could have done the trick at a fraction of the cost.
3. Broadened Lifespan
Algae feed on the limestone deposits in your shingles, making them brittle and unable to reflect UV rays properly causing premature degradation. This premature degradation can diminish the lifetime of a roof by up to 50 percent. Soft washing not only cleans your roof but also preserves and broadens its lifespan.
4. Health benefits
Eliminate mold and other organisms from passing through your roof and into your attic.
