They put out about the same PSI (pressure) of your garden hose and they are the absolute safest way to wash your roof.

How Soft Wash Cleaning Works
Professional soft washing starts with having the right equipment, cleaning solutions and trained staff. Due to the complexity and cost of these systems, homeowners hire certified pros to perform the task. Generally, this is how soft washing work:
- By way of ladders, roof wash solution is applied to the roof (or siding) by spraying a surfactant (from the gutter line), water and Sodium Hypochlorite mix that is pumped from our truck-mounted soft wash system.
- The exact mix of cleaning solution is determined by the Manufacturer to ensure effective coverage. We use the best, safest solutions at Spotless! The solution is sprayed on your roof and siding with a gentle water pressure similar to your hose pressure. We do not use pressure washers that can damage your roof!
- Once the solution is on your roof or siding, it is allowed to sit and breakdown down the dirt, organic material and staining that has built up.
- Technicians may decide to apply a light brushing to the roof or siding to remove severe bacteria buildup and/or staining, as necessary.
- After the biodegradable solution is applied and brushed, if necessary, the area is water sprayed, taking the solution off of your roof and siding in a safe manner.
- For dirtier roofs or tough spots, if needed, the solution may be sprayed again for a second or third application until the roof is clean.

Spotless’ Soft Washing Cleaning Process—Safe. Effective. Reliable.
You will see an immediate and significant difference upon application of our eco-friendly solutions.
⁃ Tape and cover electrical areas. This is necessary to protect from damage to your electrical system
⁃ Connect collection bags to downspouts to capture runoff. This is done to capture runoff from the downspouts and eliminate standing cleaning solutions.
⁃ Water-treat shrubbery and lawn. This is done at the start of the cleaning process and throughout the soft washing process to dilute chemical solutions and ensure protection of your lawn and foliage.
⁃ Pre-treat roof & siding with water to remove lose debris such as moss and mildew.
⁃ Select correct mixture as per manufacturer’s guidelines, activate truck-mounted pump sprayer and apply cleaning solution at low pressure similar to a hose.
⁃ Let solution sit 15-20 minutes. The solutions will begin breaking down the lichen, moss, and algae as well as roof staining and discoloration.
⁃ Rinse off applied solution. At this point, a noticeable difference in your roof and siding will be visible.
⁃ Brush roof as necessary (heavy moss accumulation) to remove build up areas of lichen, moss, etc.
⁃ Reapply second coat cleaning solution in areas, as needed. In an effort to remove staining and stubborn moss buildup areas, we hand brush gently to activate the roof cleaning process and remove heavy areas of growth or staining.
⁃ Ground level clean up! This speaks for itself. We ensure that your property is left as we found it or better.
⁃ Spotless results!
Did you know that the cleaning solutions continue to work over the coming days and weeks after application? It’s a key benefit many homeowners don’t know.

Soft Washing vs. Pressure Washing
Know the Facts. Don’t Pressure Wash Your Roof. It’s Not Safe.
While you may have heard of “pressure washing” areas of your roof or the exterior of your home, your roof should be treated with special care. While a homeowner may own a pressure washer, and it may seem like a good idea, pressure washing your roof can be dangerous and cause irreparable damage to your home’s appearance as well as its structural integrity. Water under high pressure can directly damage material, degrade roofing tiles and even cause new damage that was not there.
There is a reason that there is special equipment for roof cleaning and a Certification process to follow. We highly advise talking to a professional to answer all of your questions to protect your roof. Soft wash cleaning is preventative maintenance that will keep your home safe and intact!

Can my insurance be impacted by having a dirty roof?
100% yes. We are frequently contacted by homeowners who report that their insurance company has mandated that the moss algae & discoloration must be removed or their policy will be voided. Insurers are aware that failure to maintain a clean and growth-free roof will ultimately result in water damage to your home.
When does Spotless provide power washing?
SPOTLESS roof and house washing DOES do pressure washing, however, mostly to clean flat masonry surfaces such as pavement driveways walkways etc. However, we have found that pressure washing on flat surfaces is made doubly as effective when those surfaces are pre-treated with soft wash mix and then washed with a 15-inch rotating disc surface cleaner. The results are often incredible!
Do you do commercial roof cleaning?
We also do commercial roof washing, yes! Spotless has cleaned the roofs and exteriors of commercial buildings, condos, hospitals and churches, for example.
