There are many materials and designs for home roofing, and each requires a unique approach to cleaning. With professionals like us, you won’t have to worry about the process, as we know how to ensure your roof will be free from any issues. Here are some of the most popular roof types and how we handle cleaning them:
Asphalt shingle roof cleaning often requires a combination of manual removal and treatment. We can’t use pressurized water as it will only harm the roof. The common issue with shingles is that moss and algae tend to live underneath and between them, which makes proper removal nearly impossible. We need to clean them in a way that completely removes moss and algae, that is where a soft wash solution comes into play. A soft wash will kill all moss and algae without causing damage to the granules of the shingles. The soft wash technique works very well for asphalt shingle roof cleaning and even cedar shingles, and also keeps the roof clean and algae free for up to 5 years.
Tile roof cleaning has a similar dilemma you’ll see with shingles. The area underneath and around the tiles can propagate fungus and moss. Build-up can cause water to pool, exposing the roof to more water than necessary. From there, the water can flow into areas they’re not supposed to stay, causing leaks.
A soft wash application works well on tile roofs, however tile requires a much stronger mix, and may need multiple applications for the moss to go away completely. So trust Shine City to do everything just right on your tile roof cleaning in Langley!
Power washing can work for other roof types on your home, specifically for those that don’t have gaps, just like a metal roof, which can be cleaned with a combination of soft washing and power washing. We also use them to wash out gutters on your home. If a surface on your home exterior is more delicate, we use a soft wash that removes mud, debris, and other organic material with low pressure, which protects your home instead of damaging it. It’s a must as Langley goes through the different weather conditions.

We have a tried and true process for cleaning your roof maintenance called roof washing. Roof washing is a term used for when you clean a roof using a soft wash technique. Our Langley team prepares everything beforehand, so we arrive in your area ready to work. At the scheduled time, a team from Langley will start inspecting the rooftops and see what they need to do. From there, we will:
If the roof is safe and walkable, we use blowers and brushes for the removal of loose debris. If gutter cleaning is included in the quote, we will remove debris from those right after clearing large debris from the roof.
When roof cleaning, our team will treat the entire roof with our soft wash solution, making sure that all of the remaining moss turns to a bright yellow or white color, this signifies that the moss on the roof is totally dead. It is always very important that the moss and algae is killed completely when you are having your roof cleaned. Some roof cleaners in Langley do a great job cleaning, using just the right amount, and the right strength of the soft wash solution, while others may not use enough, leaving large patches of the moss and algae alive. Some contractors may even go ahead with the removal of the moss only, without treating the algae and moss with a solution. This may look appealing at first, but the roots of the moss are still alive, and will quickly begin to grow again. It is especially a bad if the contractor is doing the removal with a pressure washer. We make sure to do the job right the first time, making sure that the asphalt shingles are soaked in just the right amount of the solution to kill the algae and moss.
We’ll bag all the debris and moss that fell from the roof on to the ground, and in the following weeks and months, you will see the moss on the roof getting smaller and smaller, until it is completely gone. We guarantee results, which is another great reason to call Shine City for a free quote for your home.
