The problem with pressure washing a roof clean, is that pressure often causes damage to the tiles patina. The tile becomes spongy over a few months soaking up rainfall and leaving you with a costly roof replacement project on your hands. Not only that, when you pressure wash a roof clean, the organic matter spores are not entirely killed off, they quickly regrow thicker, leaving you with another roof cleaning task to undertake.
SoftWashing is safe for roof cleaning projects on private dwellings or commercial buildings. When the roof has been SoftWashed clean, the organic matter will not re grow back. Any future growth will only be new growth. Softwashed roofs stay cleaner for longer!
A Softwash roof cleaning test was carried out in Sept 2012 in Ashford, Kent to a domestic property when it was brand new. The roof was treated with a safe biodegradable SoftWash roof cleaning solution. The picture of the roof which is on this page was taken in January 2019. The roof has never become infested with any type of organic matter in over 6 years. The neighbouring properties roofs which have had no cleaning or treatment carried out are infested with lichens, cyanobacteria’s and mosses. Prevention is far cheaper than the cure.

Flat roofs such as EPDM membrane types quickly become infested with biological matter and often become very dark in appearance. In commercial buildings these roofs become hot, forcing the internal air conditioning to work harder, using more energy than is really needed.
Flat Membrane roof cleaning needs be undertaken more frequently due to large pools of water sitting after rainfall. These pools quickly become infested with dark organic pollution. Softwashing rather than pressure washing is essential.
Pressure washing a flat roof will kick up this foul-smelling matter and often push it into air intakes as well as air conditioning units found on the building’s roof. Sick Building syndrome can be blamed for workforce absenteeism.
This can be caused by moulds and biological spores growing nearby, which causes sore throats and irritation to the respiratory system.
Clean roofs create a healthy building.
SoftWashing when used for treating and cleaning render, including K-Rend, Monocouche, Weber, Parex and similar, leaves the surface sanitised. When the render has been treated with a SoftWash solution which contains eco friendly chemicals the surface will stay cleaner for up to 4-6 times longer than when pressure washed.
