Why is Rooftop Cleaning Important?
“Happiness is having a roof over your head…” Your roof is one of the most important parts of your house; it protects you from the elements. Therefore, it deserves the utmost care so it lasts for years!
So take a look at your rooftop. What do you see? A nice clean surface? Or ugly black stains streaking the shingles. Rooftops are often overlooked, making them the perfect spot for mold and mildew to grow. Surprisingly, roofs can make a huge impact on the overlook look and feel of your home. That’s why it is so vital that you regularly inspect and clean it! Not only does rooftop maintenance boost curb appeal, but it protects you and your loved ones from harmful contaminants and helps preserve roofing material so it lasts for years.
If allowed to sit and thrive on your rooftop, contaminants like mold, mildew, algae, lichen, and moss will gradually wear away at the shingles and cause them to rot from the moisture buildup. When it comes to asphalt shingles, in particular, algae practically feeds off the limestone in the material. Eliminate these harmful substances with our professional services!
The Best Roof Cleaning Method
Say Goodbye to Streaks and Stains
Traditional power washing is extremely effective at removing tough dirt and stains on surfaces. However, it can severely damage more fragile materials such as siding and roofing. These surfaces require a more gentle clean. This is where soft washing comes in!
Instead of using high water pressure to blast away contaminants, soft washing relies on powerful detergents that are designed to break down mold, mildew, and more. These detergents are then rinsed away with psi (pounds per square inch) levels of 500 or below, levels similar to those of a normal garden hose. We guarantee a safe and gentle clean for your rooftop.
Our cleaning method is gentle enough to keep your shingles healthy and intact. But it’s still powerful enough to remove all signs of moss, algae, and stains. Call us for the best roof washing services in Alexandria!

Why Hire a Professional?
Many homeowners in Alexandria love DIY projects! And for many things, doing it yourself is a great idea. But that’s not the case with pressure washing. Why not? In untrained hands, a power washer can become a weapon that destroys your home instead of a tool to restore it.
Using too much power can cause several years worth of damage to many of the more delicate surfaces of your house such as your roof, siding, and deck. That could cause some expensive repairs. And without experience using these tools, you could be risking your safety!
