When hiring a home exterior cleaning company to do maintenance, especially for removing moss and algae from the roof of your home, you must make sure that they are not using a high pressure on your delicate asphalt shingles. If high pressure is used for roof moss removal, the asphalt shingles may look great at first sight, but it is very common that using high pressure for delicate surfaces on your home can cause massive irreversible damage, especially roofs, which can take years of life off of the shingles. Make sure to hire a roof cleaning company who treats your home with care and respect.
Real professionals use a low pressure technique called Soft Washing for roof cleaning. We get the algae and moss gone from your home with the safest and most effective methods, which protects your property, and your bank account. Say goodbye to moss!
Soft washing is a method of exterior cleaning that utilizes a mix of cleaning agents, surfactants and soaps. The ratios and the surfactants used can be changed and adjusted to get better results on different exterior surfaces on your home. Every job is different, and the mix needs to be done perfectly to get the best results. This mix is applied to the moss and once it makes contact, it begins to eat away at the organic matter, killing the moss and algae on your home down to the root. The moss will turn from a green color to a white or yellow. This color change is what signifies that the moss and algae is completely dead. Soft washing is the only correct way to do roof moss removal

Asphalt roofs are the most common type of roof in BC. Asphalt shingle roofs are affordable to install, easier to maintain, and cause fewer issues than tile and metal roofs overall. Asphalt shingle roofs are cleaned using a combination of light brushing and a soft wash chemical application.
First, our team will arrive at your home and do an inspection of the roof from the ground. Next, they will water down all plants, grass, and vegetation to dilute any small amounts of spray that go over the roof. After setting up ladders and safety equipment, they will begin brushing all loose moss by lightly brushing the asphalt shingles. Aggressive brushing can result in damage to the roof, so light brushing is always best.
Next, the team will blow all loose debris off the roof and onto the ground. Debris will be put in a pile and taken away.
Finally, the team will begin spraying the roof with a liquid chlorine-based soft wash formula. This formula will eat away and kill the moss, algae, and mildew. While one of our team members is doing this, another will be on the ground, constantly watering down your plants, grass, and other vegetation.
Not only do we clean asphalt shingles, we also clean metal and tile roofs. Each roof is different and requires different techniques and methods to be cleaned. Put your trust in us to decide what is best for your specific situation when looking for a contractor for professional tile roof cleaning, Shingle roof cleaning, and more!

Removal using brushing will be needed on an asphalt shingle roof depending on the situation, if there are large loose chunks of moss on the roof, we often use light brushing with a vinyl brush to remove the excess debris. If the roof is unwalkable, we will not be able to do this, however the chemical treatment will still be effective in killing and removing the Moss.
For tile roofs on the other hand, we are not able to do any brushing since we cannot safely walk on the roof without the risk of breaking tiles, in this case we use a much stronger soft wash solution which will work even harder to kill the Moss down to the roots. We know how to do the job right!
The soft wash formula that we use to clean roofs is a mix of sodium hypochlorite, which is another word for liquid chlorine, as well as other surfactants and soaps. This solution does a great job of killing any organic material including moss and algae. It also leaves a much longer lasting effect compared to other Solutions. Our soft wash solution is the best moss killer solution for the job! We often drive past houses that we did years ago, and WOW, the roof is still clean. Text us, call us, or email us for roof cleaning today!
After the Moss has been killed by the soft wash solution, it will be completely dead and will begin shrinking over the following weeks and months. eventually, these junks of moss will become small, light and fluffy. The chunks of moss will either blow away with the wind, or it will continue to break down and will wash away with the water, the moss will break down so small that it will easily wash through the gutter system without clogging gutters.
