How Safe Is It To Pressure Wash Your Roof?
Is it safe to pressure wash your roof?
Here at House Wash PA we primarily use soft washing because we believe it is the safest alternative to a pressure wash.
Gentle washing uses regular pressure of 80+ psi (good garden hose pressure) to apply biodegradable solutions to the house and then simply rinses with water. This gentle, low-pressure technique is safe for all surfaces, is biodegradable, a water-based solution that emulsifies dirt and grime, disinfects mold, mildew, algae and most other bacteria, and provides a longer-lasting clean.
The black spots sometimes seen on roofs come from a type of algae that loves moisture. It thrives in this area of Pennsylvania. A safe, low-pressure cleaning removes this type of algae and protects the roof from this particular algae for up to three years.

Longer lasting results. Because gentle cleaning removes bacteria, algae, lichen, fungus, mold and mildew right at the source, results can last up to four times longer than high-pressure cleaning. Effective, yet gentle. Gentle cleaning can safely clean a variety of building materials, ensuring the longevity and structural integrity of your home. Improve your home’s energy efficiency. Gentle roof cleaning increases your roof’s ability to reflect energy from sunlight, which reduces your weather bill in hot weather. The layers of algae on your roof act as a heat reservoir, absorbing and retaining heat. Therefore, it is important to clean the roof regularly to reduce algae buildup.
In winter, House Wash PA can safely remove layers of ice without damaging your roof. Our steam washing system is capable of safely removing any ice dams. Don’t be convinced by other companies that a regular hot water pressure washer works just as well as a steam unit. While high pressure is sometimes adequate to melt ice on walkways and driveways, it can damage shingles and roofs. Our steam system operates at a temperature of about 290 degrees, which results in less water runoff, faster iron removal and an overall cleaner solution for long-term ice dams.
A cedar shingle roof should only be pressure cleaned with a garden hose. You should never pressure clean a wood shingle roof. Aggressive high-pressure cleaning can damage cedar shingles and remove an excessive amount of wood fibres. The loss of fibres will drastically reduce the life expectancy of the roof. With our process, we spray your roof with our safe and environmentally friendly solution using a low-pressure booster pump.

Roof cleaning may seem like a simple task, but it actually has a lot to do. Instead of having to figure it all out yourself, let the experts at House Wash PA Roof Cleaning handle things like soft washing – it’s a common misconception that pressure washing is more effective than soft washing. According to the Asphalt Roofing Manufacturers Association, the only way to clean a roof is the soft wash method.
The average cost of siding cleaning currently ranges from $300 to $600, depending on the size of the building and the outbuildings that are part of the property. They also depend on the material of the siding, the cleaning method (low pressure, hot water or high-pressure cleaning), the chemicals used and other variables. If the siding is wood or other softer, easily damaged material, gentle or low-pressure cleaning may be the best solution. Many homeowners find that a simple high-pressure cleaning of their home’s siding can have a significant impact on the overall appearance of the structure.
