Roof Cleaning and Pressure Washing in PA

Liberty SoftWash can rid you of your ugly roof problem in Pennsylvania, Maryland and Delaware. The process we use when cleaning all types of roofing materials including asphalt shingles, slate tiles, cedar shake, metal and tile roofs, is called softwashing. The softwash process utilizes a low-pressure cleaning solution application which will remove the black streaks, algae, lichen and moss from your roof.

The softwash cleaning process is the recommended roof cleaning technique for cleaning asphalt shingled roofs.

Why Clean Your Roof?

Your ugly shingles are doing more than making your home the neighborhood eyesore. The black streaks that you see on your roof are caused by algae growth.

This algae growth is actually eating away at your home’s roof, deteriorating the shingle and is also causing the loosening of the protective granules.

This deterioration process will shorten your roof’s lifespan by about 30%. In addition to the deterioration caused by the algae growth, a roof with black streaks will not heat evenly causing hot pockets of air in your home’s attic space.

These hot pockets of air cause your home’s heating and cooling system to work harder and less efficiently when being used due to inconsistent air temperatures.
