Roof Cleaning Brick Township New Jersey
Thank you for finding our Brick Twp New Jersey roof cleaning and power washing video. Any roof can be cleaned without using pressure washer. Aggressive cleaning processes, such as pressure washing or stiff scrubbing, can release large amounts of roofing granules and shorten the life of the roof.
What’s Eating Your Roof?
Analogies serve best when describing the roof cleaning process. The stains on a roof are alive and contagious. Detergents with sterilizing feature will serve best when attempting to remove the stains.
Let’s compare to cleaning a kitchen; If one were to sterilize a kitchen a disinfecting spray should first be applied. A cooking area cannot be scrubbed to sterilization. Bleach, vinegar and even ammonia work well to sterilize cooking areas.
This situation adheres to the same mindset. Stains on a roof are alive and contagious. Scrubbing or pressure washing will create a level of visual cleanliness but the underlying root of the stain remains in the shingle. Moss and algae will grow back rather quickly without a disinfecting pre-treatment.
Moss is vegetation that requires the ability to make roots. The overlapping layers of roof shingles provided fertile grounds, especially on the north side. North sides lack sunlight allowing moisture to linger on the surface. Even long periods of no rain can still yield a certain amount of condensation. Moss sops up this moisture allowing the moss to grow to no end.
What’s In The Soap
Detergents applied to roofs are similar to ingredients that keeps our tap water sterile and virus-free. Sodium hypochlorite, commonly known as bleach or liquid pool shock, is the safest approach and roof shingle manufactures approve its use. SH will break down rather rapidly and its final state is brine or sodium chloride (table salt). It breaks down rather quickly leaving behind no residual toxicity.

Soft-wash is the word of the day. Older methods of exterior cleaning was more about blasting high pressure water rather that approach each specific stain. Today the technology for detergents has exceeded the market.
Mold, moss and algae require bleach-based detergents while rust, line and water stains require a buffered acid. Stains typically start to dissolve immediately after application. The dissolved stains are then simply washed away at soft pressures. The “soft-wash” term claims this definition of a low pressure cleaning.
