Rescue your roof and save money! Your roof may still have many years of life left in it (ask us for a Free Roof evaluation); all it needs to be safely restored to its original beauty is soft washing. Why spend up to 10 times more to replace a roof that still has years of life left when you could just have it safely restored back to it’s original beauty and effectiveness?
We offer the safest, most effective and long-lasting cleaning treatments to restore your entire home’s and business’s exterior surfaces. Pressure washing is NEVER the right answer to cleaning a roof and should be used rarely and selectively in cleaning ANY exterior surface. Here in the Fraser Valley, most of the discoloration and buildup on your roof comes from organisms such as moss, algae, mold, mildew, and lichen—all living, organic bacteria. Our treatment options are safe for your roof. Our treatment options are not only highly effective for your roof and various other exterior surfaces, they are totally safe and environmentally sound. In fact, they are recommended as the most desirable cleaning solution by ARMA (Asphalt Roofing Manufacturers Association). We use science instead of destructive cleaning and pressure to give you a 100% kill ratio on the mold, mildew and bacteria damaging and deteriorating your roof.
What Are Those Black Streaks on My Roof?
The black or brown staining seen on numerous roofs here in the Fraser Valley that is typically mistaken for dirt or soot is in fact a type of algae called Gloeocapsa Magma. This type of algae is carried through the air and tends to land, collect and grow on roofing structures.
Besides causing unappealing black streaks, these algae also feed on the limestone filler in your shingles, causing harmful damage and wear and tear to your roof.
Your roof isn't simply dirty -- it's infected!
What Causes Moss To Grow on My Roof?
Roof Moss can be unsightly and cause your roof to prematurely fail. Roof moss normally starts it’s growth on the north side of your roof. Depending on how your home is situated it can quickly spread to other sides. The growth of moss on your roof is more than an unsightly blemish that detracts from the appeal of your home. Moss is a nuisance that threatens the integrity of your home and the health of you and your family. The shingles on your roof offer an ideal environment for moss and algae to grow because it is an area of your home that is moist and humid, which when combined with the indirect sunlight of shade from trees, allows moss to thrive.
Why You Should Soft Wash Your Roof
For many years, pressure or power washing has been the go-to for homeowners looking to clean their roofs, however, they often find that their black streaks return very quickly. This is because they're not fixing the root of the problem.
Power washing eliminates just the surface layer of moss, mold, mildew, algae and bacteria that can be found on your roof. The discoloration might vanish for the time being, but without eliminating the algae, the discolorations frequently return due to regrowth within six months.
The SoftWash System we use completely cleans and treats your roof and eliminates stain-causing bacteria by killing 100% of these pests. Soft washing your roof lasts 4 to 6 times longer than traditional pressure washing. There's no algae regrowth – only new growth.
