Our approach to roof cleaning

Your roof is critical to protecting your home from the elements. However, over time, it can accumulate dark stains, streaks, mold, mildew, algae, moss, pollen, and other grime that diminishes its appearance and can significantly reduce its lifespan.

While regular cleaning can keep your roof looking its best, not all roof cleaning solutions are created equal.

Traditional pressure washing can be especially harmful to your roof. Power washing uses harsh chemicals and high water pressure, which can leave scars, steaks, and stripes on shingles and other roofing materials. It can also damage siding, plants, and landscaping, and can even void your roof's warranty.

Bright Brothers can enhance the beauty and longevity of your roof with our superior and damage-free power washing alternative: soft wash roofing cleaning. Unlike harsh pressure washing, our unique soft washing process uses low water pressure and eco-friendly cleaning solutions to kill harmful growths like moss and algae at the root and remove stubborn stains, dirt, grime, and debris from roofing materials.

This roof cleaning method is safe for roofing, as well as gutters, siding, and landscaping. Bright Brothers contractors are triple-certified in product safety, application technique, and ladder safety, so you can feel confident your home or business is protected every step of the way.

Bright Brothers provides property protection for your home or commercial property, plants, and landscaping.

Benefits of soft washing your roof

  • Increased Lifespan: Soft washing removes damaging contaminants like moss, algae, and lichen, preserving the integrity of roofing materials and prolonging the lifespan of your roof.
  • Prevents Damage: Moss and algae can cause physical damage to your roof over time. Soft washing is a gentle yet effective way to eliminate these threats, preserving your roof's structural integrity and protecting against leaks and other damage.
  • Prevents Costly Repairs: Soft wash roof cleaning kills algae, mold, lichen, moss, and other organisms at the root, preventing damage that could lead to expensive roof repairs or replacements.
  • Enhanced Curb Appeal: Soft washing is a practical way to remove unsightly stains, discoloration, and organic materials from shingles and roofing materials. A clean roof significantly improves your property's appearance and can even increase its market value.
  • Improved Energy Efficiency: A clean roof reflects more sunlight and heat, reducing heat absorption and helping maintain cooler indoor temperatures, which can lower cooling costs.
  • Saves Time & Effort: Soft wash roof cleaning is more efficient and requires less maintenance compared to manual cleaning methods.
  • Protects Gutters: Cleaning your roof prevents debris from building up, preventing gutter clogs and water damage.
  • Warranty Protection: Unlike power washing, soft washing is safe for many roofing types, including asphalt shingles, metal roofing, and cedar shake. Regular roof cleaning helps maintain the warranties on roofing materials, ensuring coverage in case of unexpected issues.

FAQs about roof cleaning

Why is roof cleaning important?

Roof cleaning is crucial because your roof bears the brunt of harsh weather conditions. Over time, it becomes a magnet for dirt, debris, algae, moss, lichen, and other organic matter — all of which can be damaging to roofing materials. Algae and moss, in particular, pose a significant threat because they can break down shingles, reducing your roof's lifespan and increasing the need for costly repairs or even a full roof replacement.

Regular roof cleaning and maintenance serve as your first line of defense. Our unique soft washing process removes contaminants and prevents the growth of moss and algae, protecting the integrity of your roofing materials. In the end, soft wash roof cleaning is an investment that not only improves your property's curb appeal but saves you money by extending its lifespan.

Is soft washing safe for roofing?

Yes, soft washing is a safe and effective method for roof cleaning. Unlike traditional high-pressure power washing, which can be harsh and potentially damage roofing materials, soft washing employs a gentle approach. It uses low water pressure in combination with eco-friendly cleaning solutions to remove dirt, grime, and organic matter like moss, algae, and lichen.

Soft washing is specifically designed to thoroughly clean while safeguarding the structural integrity of roofing materials. It is a better solution than pressure washing for roofs because it doesn't harm shingles, gutters, siding, or landscaping. In fact, soft wash roof cleaning prevents damage by addressing the root cause of the issue, including moss and algae growth, increasing your roof's longevity and preventing the need for costly repairs or replacements.

How often should I have my roof cleaned?

In general, it's recommended to have your roof cleaned every two to five years. However, the frequency depends on several factors, including your location, roofing materials, weather conditions, and the presence of nearby trees. Environmental factors like moisture and air pollution also play a role.

Ultimately, it's good practice to have a professional roof cleaner assess your roof and recommend a cleaning schedule based on your specific circumstances. Performing regular maintenance can increase the lifespan of your roof and prevent costly repairs down the road.

Can I clean my roof with a pressure washer?

No, it's not recommended to clean your roof with a pressure washer because it can severely damage roofing materials. Pressure washing uses high water pressure to remove dirt and debris, which can lead to shingle damage, water intrusion, and loss of protective granules. Using a pressure washer for roof cleaning can even void your roof's warranty.

Soft washing is a safer and more effective alternative, gently removing dirt, algae, moss, and other contaminants without damaging your roof, siding, or landscaping.
