Why is Soft Washing My Roof Important?

Mold, algae, mildew, dirt, and moss naturally build up on your roof annually. Regular maintenance and roof washing are the most effective techniques to keep your roof structurally safe. Nevertheless, most homeowners know the dangers of scaling their roof to provide the regular cleaning and maintenance needed; thus, they find the risk of injury too high compared with the maintenance benefits. Over time, these elements cause damage to your roofing system and result in your home losing the curb appeal it once had. The mixture of dampness and warmth on the Delmarva Peninsula creates the perfect conditions for your roof to be converted into a breeding ground for algae, mold, mildew, and bacteria. Without 302 Power Washing’s professional roof maintenance and Soft Washing, these perpetrators will eventually impact the integrity of your entire roof! Even if there is no visible mold, algae, or mildew, dirt alone dulls the look of any roof. Whether you have asphalt shingles or metal roofing, dirt dulls the brilliance of your property and discourages onlookers from being visually drawn towards it.

How Does Soft Washing My Roof Protect My Real Estate Investment?

Neglecting to perform the proper preventative maintenance your roof needs will lead to costly repairs and replacement issues. 302 Power Washing’s annual roof soft washing will help you keep cooling costs low, increase the life expectancy of your roof, and ultimately have a positive impact on your home’s property value. Property value is one of the main reasons many home sellers and their real estate agents rely on 302 Power Washing to handle their pre-listing house washing needs. Potential buyers that observe roof streaking typically attribute it to a general absence of homeowner maintenance or poor roof quality. Neither situation may be accurate, but roof streaking and poor curb appeal will most certainly lower the profits you will ultimately make from the sale of your home. Did you know The National Association of Realtors asserts that soft Washing can add $10,000-$15,000 of value to your home, should you decide to sell? This simple routine maintenance can net you substantially increased profits when selling your home. 302 Power Washing will help you ensure your real estate investment is protected, along with your personal safety and physical health!

What are the Stains on My Roof? What Causes Them?

Roof stains and streaking are the most prevalent symptoms of mold, algae, and other organisms flourishing in humid conditions. Mold typically produces dark green or brown blotchy stains. Since mold tends to retain moisture, the stored water can soak into a roof over time, causing the roofing materials to deteriorate. Mold can also cause respiratory health issues and release hazardous particles into your surrounding environment. Gloeocapsa Magma, one of the most common Algae found on a roof, typically produces vertical, black, streaking stains! It habitually grows on the topmost portion of a roof and has the natural ability to retain heat. Due to the algae’s heat preservation, it results in a warmer home and increased cooling costs. Mildew will appear as a chalky substance that can span the roof's entire surface. Rain and standing water usually cause mildew to grow, and if not removed, it will eventually cause rotting and water damage to the roofing system.

How Does 302 Power Washing SAFELY Clean My Roof?

302 Power Washing uses an extremely safe roof cleaning technique called the Soft Washing Method to protect your home. The main difference between Power Washing/Pressure Washing and Soft Washing is APPLIED PRESSURE! While Power Washing and Pressure Washing are still valuable tools for many outdoor projects, they are not the right choice for the roof of your home! Not only does Soft Washing last 5-6 times longer than power washing, but it also cleans your roof safely! Protecting your asset and keeping your family safe is 302 Power Washing’s number one priority!

When your roof needs cleaned, you may be tempted to use a power washer for the job, but a traditional power washer can cause more harm than good. Some of the negative implications traditional Power Washers may cause are decreased lifespan of the roof (due to the removal of the granular finish on the roof tiles), top story flooding (from high-pressure water overlapping tiles and entering the roof space), and spreading of the moss and algae you are trying to remove. As you can clearly see, it is vital that you let 302 Power Washing manage your home’s roof washing needs!

Before we tackle your home’s roof using our Soft Washing Method, you need to know what Soft Washing is and why we use it! Soft Washing is different from traditional Pressure Washing, where high pressure removes dirt and debris. Soft Washing uses low-pressure, detergent-based cleaning products. The Soft Washing process kills mold, algae, mildew, and bacteria and removes dirt and waste. Soft Washing literally cleans and sanitizes your roof simultaneously. Soft Washing allows homeowners to reap the highest return on their investment without assuming risks. It delivers results that last while providing a trustworthy route to magnificent results! 302 Power Washing’s cleaners and detergents are all water-based, environmentally friendly, and safe for use around your family and pets!
