3 Great Benefits of Softwashing Your Home

Moldy Roofs and Siding are an eyesore

So Clean offers professional residential pressure washing and softwashing services for our residential clients.  Over the years, we have evolved from using pressure on all surfaces to using pressure on more durable surfaces such as concrete, curbs, sidewalks, porches, pool decks, brick, etc.

Here in Upstate South Carolina we certainly enjoy our indoor-outdoor lifestyle! Softwashing is a washing technique that will breathe new life into your home’s roofs, siding, and natural or composite deck in an environmentally friendly way.

We will make your Upstate South Carolina home’s exterior shine once again!

Removing Mold From Roofs

Softwashing your home protects your exterior from potential damage that can be caused by high-pressure methods. We only use high-pressure cleaning on durable hard surfaces. For exterior cleaning, we utilize our low-pressure cleaning process. We recommend the softwashing method for siding cleaning, roof cleaning, plus removing mold from siding and decks.

Every year, we recommend getting your concrete driveways, sidewalks, curbs, pool decks, and more cleaned and maintained with high pressure. We don’t just use pressure and water; We have specially formulated detergents for pre- and post-treating surfaces to really give you the best cleaning possible.

Softwashing Siding and Windows

When it comes to hiring a professional to wash the exterior of your home, make sure they’re using low pressure when doing so. In the past, many contractors will use high pressure when cleaning your home, which can cause issues like blowing window seals and leaking under windows and doors.

So Clean offers a low-pressure washing process that is much safer when cleaning the exterior of your home. Not only is this process much safer, but it also cleans much better than the traditional residential pressure washing method and lasts much longer!

We understand that your home is the most important investment that you have and we treat every home as we’re washing our own. We have specialized formulated detergents to effectively clean and disinfect your home. We clean all types of different exterior surfaces on your homes, such as vinyl, cedar shake, aluminum, and more.

The Softwashing Roof Cleaning Method

Do you have moldy black streaks forming on your roof? Is it starting to get out of control and turning your entire roof black? Don’t worry, this is a common issue due to an air-born green algae that travel from tree to tree.

Roof Algae Destroys Shingles

We often mistake the black discoloration and streaks visible on many roofs as mold or mildew, but it is actually algae. The algae can form wherever moisture dwells on roof surfaces. Coastal or humid climates create the most conducive conditions for algae growth. The most common type, gloeocapsa magma or blue-green algae, protects itself from damaging ultraviolet rays by producing a dark pigmented sheath.

The algae discoloration typically begins as small spots then quickly transforms into streaks on the roof plane. By the time the algae is visible, it likely has been present for several months or longer. The wind or animals carry algae spores quickly spreading from one rooftop to another. That is why it is common to see algae growth on all rooftops throughout an affected neighborhood. 

With highly reflective or “cool” roofs, algae will undoubtedly have a negative impact on the long-term effectiveness of these roof systems. That is why it is important to address an algae problem as soon as possible. Algae growth starts small and then creates havoc on your roof, especially on shingled roofs. The algae will actually eat away at the limestone within the shingles, causing UV rays to stay trapped on your roof vs reflecting, as they’re designed to do.

We have mastered the process of effectively removing these stubborn streaks by using a low-pressure process that gently applies a cleaning formula to properly remove and kill the spores of this algae, giving your roof that fresh new look it once had! Best of all, So Clean Offers a 5 year spot free warranty with all of our roof cleanings!

Yes, we can instantly remove these stains before we leave your driveway in most cases for a fraction of the cost of a new roof!
