What's The Difference Between Pressure Washing And Soft Washing?

Pressure washing is the process of cleaning a surface using high-pressure water spray through a wand with a nozzle; it can also be used for jobs like paint or rust removal. Soft washing is a type of exterior cleaning that relies more on cleaning solutions to effectively get the job done instead of high-velocity water. Soft washing is the preferred method for delicate surfaces and materials like asphalt shingles or windows.

Is That Black Stuff On My Roof Really Not Dirt?

Roof cleaning is an essential part of maintaining your roofing system, but that's not just dirt we're cleaning off up there. A common misconception is the black accumulation seen on shingles is dirt, but it's actually a type of algae called Gloeocapsa magma. This organism feeds on the asphalt granules, and the streaks are commonly caused when rain washes algae down the roof - but not off. You need soft washing to eliminate the problem and deter it from returning.
