What is Soft washing?

Unlike pressure washing, soft washing uses low-pressure pumps (soft washing uses about as much pressure as a regular garden hose) and a combination of biodegradable mildewcides, algaecides, and soaps that are custom-blended for your particular need.

Soft washing is not only more effective, but it uses less water than power washing!
Soft washing is the method recommended by most major insurers as well as the Asphalt Roofing Manufacturing Association (ARMA), so it won’t void your warranty!

Unlike pressure washing that will dislodge materials loosened by decomposition and aging as well as damage roof shingles, soft washing will not.


Our roof and exterior soft washing services include:

Every chemical that we use is 100% biodegradable and we take great care to pre-soak or cover all plants as needed, so you don’t have to worry about plant loss.

You should see immediate results for a roof soft wash. If you have actively growing moss, you should see results in a couple of weeks as the root systems die. Depending on environmental conditions and the number of trees in close proximity, your roof should remain free of black stains for 4 to 6 years after the treatment.
