Soft Wash

What Is Meant By Soft Washing?

Soft washing is the industry-standard method for cleaning delicate outdoor surfaces such as roofs and siding because it can remove buildup without causing damage to the surface

Traditional pressure washing uses high-pressure water to blast away dirt and grime. Soft washing relies on gentle, low-pressure streams of water to apply specialized cleaning solutions to safely and effectively clean surfaces.

Applied solutions are formulated to break down and kill mold, algae, and other organic matter without damaging the surface being cleaned. 

Our No Pressure Roof Cleaning Process

01.


Preparing the Area 

Before we can do anything to your roof, it's important that we prep the roof as well as the area around your house. Depending on the project, this can include removing debris from the roof, clearing out gutters, covering electrical outlets and other electronics, moving or protecting important items, and soaking plants.

02.


Soft Washing the Roof

Once anything we don't want washed is protected, we'll begin to apply the cleaning solution using our low pressure water system. Often times, we can wash the entire roof from the ground. But if required, we'll get on a ladder or on the roof to ensure the entire roof is cleaned properly. 

03.


Protecting Your Plants

The only way to effectively remove unsightly algae and mold on a roof is by using a cleaning solution. With all cleaning agents, it's important to be extra careful when using them around organic matter. That's why we soak plants before, during, and after a roof clean – ensuring no cleaning agents are left on surrounding plants. 

Frequently Asked Questions Related to Yulee Roof Cleaning

How much does it cost to pressure wash a roof in Florida?

If you’re asking for quotes to pressure wash your roof, you’re asking the wrong question. And no matter how low the price, if anyone or any company offers to pressure wash your roof you should run away as fast as possible.

Pressure washing a roof can cause significant damage to the roof's surface and reduce its lifespan. Instead of pressure washing, a better option for cleaning a roof is soft washing, which uses a gentler approach to clean the surface without causing damage. 

How much does it cost to soft wash a roof in Florida?

Now you’re asking the right question!

The cost of soft washing a roof in Florida can vary depending on several things. Factors can include the size and slope of the roof, the type of roofing material, the services required to adequately do the job, and the level of dirt or staining.

Most soft wash and home exterior cleaning companies charge between $0.15 to $0.50 per square foot. As a very rough estimate, you can expect to pay anywhere from $400 to $800 for a typical single-story home with a shingle roof.

For larger homes or roofs with steeper slopes, the cost will certainly be higher. If the roof requires additional cleaning services, such as gutter debris removal, skylight cleaning, or moss removal, the price may increase. Similarly, if a roof has special needs or considerations such as solar panels, expect additional fees.

Is it OK to pressure wash a shingle roof?

Absolutely not, unless you’re okay with dramatically reducing the lifespan of your roof. It’s harmful for a variety of reasons.

What does pressure washing do to shingles?

Pressure washing can potentially damage shingles on a roof. Shingles are designed to protect your roof and home from the elements, and they have a granular surface that helps deflect sunlight and shed water. The high-pressure water spray from a pressure washer can dislodge or erode these granules, leading to premature wear and tear on the shingles.

Additionally, the force of the water can be strong enough to loosen or break shingles, particularly if they are already in a weakened or brittle condition. This can result in leaks, water infiltration, and other roof problems.

Furthermore, pressure washing can force water under the shingles, causing water damage and mold growth. The high pressure can also strip away the asphalt coating on the shingles, reducing their lifespan and effectiveness.

And last, pressure washing can void your roof's warranty and insurance coverage. Many roofing manufacturers explicitly state that pressure washing is not an approved method for cleaning their products. If any damage occurs due to pressure washing, your warranty and insurance may not cover it.

Is it bad to pressure wash moss off roof?

Again, yes. It is bad to pressure wash moss off your roof for the reasons listed above. In addition to damaging your roof, pressure washing can disperse moss spores, allowing them to spread to other areas of the roof or neighboring surfaces. This can result in a recurring moss problem, requiring additional cleaning and maintenance in the future.

Instead of pressure washing your roof, the best way to clean it off is to very lightly brush the moss to loosen and break it free from the roof. Then blow it off your roof with a leaf blower. After that, to prevent regrowth and the spread of moss spores, soft wash your roof using a moss and mold killing cleaning solution. You can also finish the cleaning process by treating your roof with a zinc powder. 

What PSI should I clean my roof?

As mentioned above, it's generally recommended to avoid using a pressure washer altogether when cleaning a roof. But if you decide to proceed with using a pressure washer, it's crucial to use the lowest possible pressure setting to minimize the risk of damage. It's advisable to keep the pressure below 1,200 PSI.

As a general guideline, if you can safely put your hand in front of the washer tip without injury, it will likely be safe for your roof. That said, be sure not apply the tip of your pressure washer directly to your roof. Also, be sure to avoid angling your sprayer in a way that will force water under your shingles.

Is it a good idea to have your roof cleaned?

Having your roof cleaned can be a good idea in certain circumstances. Here are a few factors to consider when deciding whether to clean your roof:

Increase Curb Appeal, Home Value, and Sale Price

A clean roof can enhance the visual appeal of your home – making it more attractive to potential buyers. 

When they spot a nice and well-kept roof, it gives them the impression that the property is worth more than similar homes with neglected or grungy roofs.

This positive perception can translate into a higher sale price or increased buyer interest.

Visible Stains or Debris on Your Roof 

If your roof has noticeable stains, algae, moss, or debris buildup, cleaning may be beneficial for both aesthetic and functional reasons. Stains and growth can detract from your home's appearance and potentially indicate underlying issues that need attention. Cleaning can help restore the roof's appearance and remove any materials that could lead to further damage.

Increase Roof Longevity

Regular maintenance, including cleaning, can help extend the lifespan of your roof. Removing debris and organic growth can prevent moisture retention, which can lead to decay, rot, and premature deterioration of roofing materials. Regular cleaning can help maintain the roof's integrity and potentially save you from costly repairs or premature roof replacement.

Meet Homeowner Association (HOA) or Insurance Requirements

Some homeowner associations or insurance policies may have specific requirements regarding the maintenance and cleanliness of roofs. If you are part of an HOA or have an insurance policy with such stipulations, it may be necessary to have your roof cleaned to comply with the guidelines or maintain your coverage.

Prior to Roof Assessment

Roofing companies and inspectors often can’t do their job properly if your roof is covered with algae, mold, or moss. In this instance, you’ll need to have the roof cleaned to enable these professionals to really see what’s going on with your roof. 

If you're unsure whether your roof needs cleaning or if you notice signs of damage or growth, it's advisable to consult with a professional roofer. They can assess the condition of your roof, identify any underlying issues, and recommend appropriate cleaning and maintenance measures.
