What is roof moss and how can it damage my roof? Well, 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. Composition roofs that have a moss build up can be damaged in a number of ways. Roof Moss can grow underneath the end of the roofing material and start to lift up the edge of the shingle. Roof Moss roots or rhizoids attach to the ceramic granules and if the moss is ripped off the roof takes a bit of roofing material with it. If the roof is pressure washed or wire brushed this is very common. Birds also peck at the roof moss and use it for nesting material, which can leave holes in the composition roofing. Roof cleaning and moss removal can safe your roofs life.

Soft washing is the logical, reasonable alternative to destructive power washing and pressure washing. It utilizes water-based, naturally bio-degradable chemicals that emulsify dirt and crud, while killing and eliminating mold, mildew, algae and bacteria – and disinfecting the surface area being treated. Soft washing uses only one-third the water of pressure washing, 98% less pressure, lasts up to 6x longer and doesn't erode the targeted area’s surface like pressure washing and power washing will do. Our Soft Washing Process can be used for Roof Cleaning, Roof Moss Removal, Exterior House Cleaning, Concrete Driveway Cleaning, Patio Cleaning, Deck Cleaning, Window Washing, Playgound Cleaning and many more exterior surfaces.
Patio & Deck Cleaning
Two of the primary areas we as homeowners most enjoy spending time is on our deck and/or patio! Unfortunately, these are the two of the areas most affected by the environmental assault on our homes’ exteriors occurring daily. These places, even more so than many of your other exterior surfaces, can experience heavy buildups of mold, mildew, algae, lichens and other naturally present contaminants. Left untreated, they are certainly terrible to have to look at every day, but worse yet, they are feasting on the materials that comprise these surfaces. Soft washing these flat surfaces will kill the bacteria causing the assault and infesting your deck and patio, and put an immediate halt to the all-you-can-eat buffet these gnarly little pests are enjoying. We can redeem and refresh your deck and patio back to its like-new condition through our flat surface cleansing treatments. And don’t be fooled—while a number of composite deck and patio area brand names tout their products as "maintenance-free", they, too, begin to accumulate mold, mildew, dirt, crud and algae, just like any others. Treat the buildup, and get back to enjoying one of your home’s e greatest assets, and favorite places to relax.
Whether your driveway is concrete, brick, or stone, it is still vulnerable to the very same black or green mold, mildew and dirt found on the other various exterior surfaces of your home.

The driveway will literally look like new, while also putting an end to the daily tracking of all that gunchy crud and bacteria from off the driveway and into the house by every family member and pet.

We at Ocean SoftWash are in no way “anti-power washing”. But here’s the problem...when you are a hammer, everything in the world looks like a nail, which can be really dangerous. Many power washers, and even homeowners themselves, misuse or misapply power washing, and the results can be pretty devastating. Unlike power washing, we use about 60 psi, about the strength of your garden hose, to deliver the chemical formulations to their appropriate surface. So the pressure is for delivery ONLY! Power/Pressure washers will use 3,000-4,000 psi to do their cleaning, which is more than enough pressure to do serious damage. A very typical misapplication of power/pressure washing is in roof cleaning. Using this kind of pressure on a roof will literally destroy it, and the damage is unrecoverable. It will easily blow apart shingles, and certainly blasts the all-important granules right off the shingles’ surfaces. And this happens every single day. You do not need pressure for cleaning. What is needed is specially formulated chemical solutions, designed for very specific and targeted use, delivered to the various surfaces of your home or commercial building with enough pressure to get them there. Period. And if you are not killing the bacteria that is infesting the surface (see power washing/pressure washing), you are simply moving them around to regrow and thrive on any nearby surface. Soft washing kills and eliminates all such bacteria and even buffers the surface against future regrowth. Checkmate, power washers!
When utilized by experienced and qualified professionals, power washing can be an additional reliable kind of cleaning your residence or business' exterior. Power washing can be beneficial for pre-paint preparation, fundamental cleansing on strong surface areas, and also stripping surfaces down to basic elements.
