No New Posts   Roof Cleaning Service Staten Island NY | Exterior Soft-Washing

January 15, 2014

Thompson Roof Cleaning and Power Washing LLC

Staten Island Roof Washing

(877) 420-WASH


Professional Roof Cleaning Service For Staten Island NY

We do no use pressure washers when cleaning a roof.  We use a proprietary detergent that sterilizes the organic growth that is staining the shingle.  In the past decade roofs have become more and more stained which is caused by the increase in limestone that was added to the shingle by the shingle manufacturer.

What's In The Soap?

Major roof shingle manufacturers, like GAF (the maker of the popular Timberline shingle) suggest using bleach as the compatible cleaning product.  Bleach is derived from salt.  When bleach breaks down (which happens quickly) it returns back to salt.  The technical name for bleach is sodium hypochlorite.  The technical name for table salt is sodium chloride. This concoction provides a powerful disinfectant to kill roof moss and algae from a roof shingle.  There is not even a remote chance that bleach can damage a roof shingle.  Each full roof cleaning comes with our 5 Year Spot-Free Warranty.

Staten Island Soft Washing Service

All exterior services can be cleaned using a low pressure soft wash method.  Most of the stains surrounding a property are organic in nature.  Mold and algae dissolve in our detergent.  It is then soft washed away with a high volume low pressure rinse.  The process is safe for all surfaces such as vinyl, stucco, dryvit, cedar, slate roofs, and even painted surfaces.

Check out soft washing in progress in our video:

Safe Effective Exterior Cleaning for Union County NJ

Power Washing has evolved this past decade.  No longer does your home have to endure the aggressive "high pressure" cleaning of the past.  With the latest technology of simple detergents any home can be "Soft-washed" with better results.  Most stains on a home are "organic" such as mold, mildew, moss, and algae.  These stains are very sensitive to certain sterilizing compounds and can be removed safely and affordably.  These simple compounds are the same ones used by local municipalities to sterilize our drinking water.  It is also the same that is used to keep swimming pools free of algae and viruses.
