OLYMPIA MOSS REMOVAL
Licensed Bonded Insured
Soft Wash Service
Soft washing is an in-depth cleaning method to remove moss and revitalize the roof’s health and appearance by cleaning away dirt, stains and other organic build-up such as mildew, algae, & lichen.
Soft washing is the least invasive method to clean a roof, and is the recommended cleaning method of the Asphalt Roofing Manufacturer's Association, or ARMA.
The Soft Wash Service utilizes our low-pressure pump system to apply a cleaning agent that thoroughly treats all of the moss over the roof.
The detergent solution (diluted sodium hypochlorite + surfactant blend) cleans the entire roof and actively prevents new moss growth, generally for up to 2 years.
The soft wash solution is collected at the downspouts upon application and hauled away for proper disposal.
Once exposed to the cleaning agent, it may take several months for affected moss deposits to fall from the roof due to the elements. Any dark stains on the roof (algae growth) will be completely removed by the service.
The service is ideal for prolonging the life of an older roof and maximizing its remaining lifespan.
We also recommend the service for roofs with a variety of organic growth (moss, mold, mildew, algae, lichen).
