At APro Pressure Washing we use a soft washing technique to clean residential roofs. Though traditional power washing tools are employed, soft washing incorporates a specially designed spray nozzle that delivers a wider, less concentrated stream of water. Less concentrated water pressure protects shingles, tiles, gutters, vents, flashing, and chimneys from damage. Now, don’t let the name fool you. Soft washing is effective washing, primarily because of the targeted, eco-friendly, chemical agents added to the stream of hot water.
APro’s roof washing technique is designed to remove unsightly roof stains, which can take away from the overall appearance of the home or business structure. Importantly, however, our roof washing also effectively destroys organisms and debris that would otherwise erode the roof surface if left unchecked. Roof washing addresses:
- Gloeocapsa Magma – a parasite that feeds off the limestone filler in asphalt shingles. This magma is responsible for those black streaks you often see running down roof lines. Not only an eyesore, but this bacteria can also break down shingles and result in costly roof failure if left to grow.
- Moss – which can lift shingles and expose the roof underlayment to damaging elements.
- Mold and Mildew- which not only damage shingles and underlayment but can also become a health hazard.
- Lichen – a hardy organism that grows from algae and fungus and can penetrate shingles and degrade roof integrity.
APro’s soft roof washing is safe and effective for most roofing structures, including asphalt, wood and tile shingles and metal roofs.
