Scotch Plains Roof Cleaning
Hello and thank you for finding our Scotch Plains roof cleaning near me. Soft washing is the favored roof cleaning method since pressure washing can compromise the roofing shingle. Stains on a roof shingle are living (unless its rust). Algae and moss will never correct itself. The source of the growth is embedded into the shingle. Pressure washing will crop the top but allow it to grow in thicker or fuller. Similarly to mowing a lawn when the grass comes back thicker and more full.
Soft washing has replaced the old school method of straight up “power washing”. Not all stains will simply blast away. Algae, moss and mold have their own disinfecting detergent where as rust staining would require something along the lines of a buffered acid. An ideal reaction for each of these stain types is dissolving features. Liquifying the stain will allow a simple rinse to finish the job.
What’s In the Soap?
Different types of sanitizing detergents yield different ph levels. Sodium hypochlorite (bleach) provides the safest level of ph to get the job done. Bleach is bio-degradable and leaves behind no residual toxicity. After the application is applied to the roof the surrounding area is thoroughly rinsed. Tarps and/plastics should be used to protect surrounding landscape.
Power Washing Scotch Plains
Similarly to roof cleaning, sidings can also achieve superior cleaning results without the aggressive nature of force high pressure water. 98% of stains on homes and businesses have organic tendencies such as mold, mildew, moss and algae. A 100% sterile surface can only come with using a detergent with a sanitizing feature. Power washing with forced pressurized water can create a level of clean but will do nothing to sterilize the surface.
Soft washing is not limited to sidings. All surfaces can be soft washed including decks, trex, vinyl fences, children’s toys, wood restoration, windows, gutters, patios, pool decks and more.
