What exactly is soft wash roof washing?
Many of our local customers ask me, “John, what exactly is soft washing and how is it different than pressure washing”? According to Wikipedia, “Soft washing is a cleaning method using low pressure and specialized solutions to safely remove mildew, bacteria, algae and other organic stains from roofs and other building exteriors. It is so named to differentiate the method from power washing.”
Soft washing Roof Cleaning is the most effective and safest way to clean your roof and provides the following benefits:
- Maintains the structural integrity of the roof and your home
- Cleans the moss off the roof
- Improves the curb appeal of your home
- Avoids water damage
- Extends the life of your roof
- Prevents pests and critters
Roof Cleaning Before & After: View Our Work
Spotless’ soft washing roof cleaning method is superior to pressure washing because the risk of damage caused by severe water pressure is eliminated through the soft wash roof cleaning chemical solution process. The PSI is the same as your hose water pressure and will not damage your roof. In addition, the application of the cleaning solutions is safer and more effective! Soft wash is applied from the ladder at the gutter line and involves less risk to the applicators.
Soft roof washing effectively removes dirt, grime, moss, bacteria and organic growth such as lichen from your roof and siding. It is applied by spraying a surfactant, water and Sodium Hypochlorite mix that is pumped from our truck-mounted soft wash system onto your roof and siding. The exact mix of cleaning solution is determined by the manufacturer to ensure effective coverage. It is sprayed on your roof and siding with a gentle water pressure similar to your hose pressure. The mixture is allowed to sit and breakdown down the dirt, organic material and staining. In many cases, we have to apply a light brushing to the roof or siding to remove severe bacteria buildup and/or staining. After the biodegradable solution is applied and brushed, if necessary, we then water spray off the solution from the roof and siding. In certain cases, we have to apply this process several times to get SPOTLESS results!

Our Soft Washing Cleaning Process
⁃ Tape and cover electrical areas. This is necessary to protect from damage to your electrical system
⁃ Connect collection bags to downspouts to capture runoff. This is done to capture runoff from the downspouts and eliminate standing cleaning solutions.
⁃ Water-treat shrubbery and lawn. This is done at the start of the cleaning process and throughout the soft washing process to dilute chemical solutions and ensure protection of your lawn and foliage.
⁃ Pre-treat roof & siding with water to remove lose debris such as moss and mildew.
⁃ Select correct mixture as per manufacturer’s guidelines, activate truck-mounted pump sprayer and apply cleaning solution at low pressure similar to a hose.
⁃ Let solution sit 15-20 minutes. The solutions will begin breaking down the lichen, moss, and algae as well as roof staining and discoloration.
⁃ Rinse off applied solution. At this point, a noticeable difference in your roof and siding will be visible.
⁃ Brush roof as necessary (heavy moss accumulation) to remove build up areas of lichen, moss, etc.
⁃ Reapply second coat cleaning solution in areas, as needed. In an effort to remove staining and stubborn moss buildup areas, we hand brush gently to activate the roof cleaning process and remove heavy areas of growth or staining.
⁃ Ground level clean up! This speaks for itself. We ensure that your property is left as we found it or better.
⁃ Spotless results!
Please note that soft washing your roof and siding is an amazingly effective, safe and reliable method for roof cleaning, exterior siding cleaning and masonry surfaces. You will see an immediate and significant difference upon application. The process is incremental as the cleaning solutions continue to work over the coming days and weeks after application.
Soft Washing vs. Pressure Washing
Know the Facts.
Treat your roof with care. Spotless does it right, the first time.
While you may have heard of “pressure washing” the exterior of your home (we at Spotless do provide this Service for thousands of homeowners), your roof should really be treated with special care.
But pressure washing your roof is not advised! It can be dangerous and cause irreparable damage to your home’s appearance and structural integrity. The high pressure can damage material, degrade roofing tiles (and siding) permanently and even cause new damage that was not there, for example.
Instead, invest in roof washing. As the saying goes, if you aren’t willing to do it right the first time, are you willing to pay for it twice? Only the preventative maintenance of soft roof washing can accomplish your needs safely…
When does Spotless provide power washing? SPOTLESS roof and house washing DOES do pressure washing, however, mostly to clean flat masonry surfaces such as pavement driveways walkways etc. However, we have found that pressure washing on flat surfaces is made doubly as effective when those surfaces are pre-treated with soft wash mix and then washed with a 15-inch rotating disc surface cleaner. The results are often incredible!
Frequently Asked Questions
What collects on your roof that should be removed and cleaned off?
Moss, algae, mildew and lichen are most common.
What is that stuff on my roof and why is it there?
Moss and algae are very commonly found on roofs. Moss is a plant that receives water from its leaves. Algae Spores are carried by wind and grow in cool and shady sections of the roof, in particular north facing sections. They will grow on any roof, given the right conditions. Your roof is constantly exposed to the elements. The black staining and streaking you may see on your roof is called gloeocapsa magma or GM. Our biodegradable and environmentally safe chemical solution mixed on site will kill all of these roof hazards and restore the beauty of your roofing shingle.
How do I prevent roof mildew, etc. from growing in the future?
Trim branches that are overhanging. In addition, it is critical that you clean clogged gutters and remove standing water. Take advantage of our 20% Off on gutter cleaning when booking soft wash roof washing and cleaning service.
Can dirty roofs lead to roof leaks?
Absolutely yes! Organisms such as moss, gloeocapsa magma, algae and lichen Attach themselves to your roof shingles. Overtime, they will degrade the roofing shingle and ultimately cause the shingles to lift up! In addition, removing them is best done by chemicals because if it is done by high pressure it can cause “pockmarks” or divots in your roofing system.
Does having a dirty roof affect my insurance?
100% yes. We are frequently contacted by homeowners who report that their insurance company has mandated that the moss algae & discoloration must be removed or their policy will be voided. Insurers are aware that failure to maintain a clean and growth-free roof will ultimately result in water damage to your home.
Does soft washing really work?
Soft washing roofs is the most effective, cost efficient and responsible way to maintain your roofing system. It has been around for decades and it is recommended by the Asphalt Shingle Manufacturers Association as the only way to safely and effectively clean your roof.
Should I pressure wash my roof and is roof washing necessary?
No! Never pressure wash roofs! High Pressure power washing should not be used on roofs!!! Our expert technicians know how to soft wash a roof effectively and safely. Asphalt shingles are not rated for that kind of water psi pressure. Severe damage can occur as well as the reduction in effective lifespan of the roof. In addition, pressure washing roofs will void your roof warranty.
Can roof washing save me money & what does roof cleaning cost?
Roof Cleaning saves you money by improving the appearance of your home and maintaining the structural integrity of the roof as well removing potential damaging organic growth that can cause water leaks.
What factors influence roof washing and cleaning costs?

According to the Asphalt Shingle Manufacturers Association, it is recommended to do it every 3 to 5 years to preserve the look and functionality of your asphalt shingle roof.
