4 Benefits of Soft Washing Your Siding and Roof

Cleaning the exterior of your home can be a tough and tedious job. Considering your home will be one of your greatest financial investments, taking care of it should take a pretty high priority. But how exactly do you tackle such a big task? From stains, moss, bacteria, dingy roofs, to dirty siding, these issues can negatively impact the appearance of your house. Stains on your siding and roof can also contribute to an array of other household problems and even shorten the lifespan of your home.

While pressure washing can damage your home and lead to expensive gutter repairs, soft washing is a biodegradable option that can add value to your home. We have created an outline of the top four benefits of soft washing your house.

What Are the Advantages of Soft Washing Your Home?

1. Curb Appeal

The obvious answer is aesthetics. You want your home to look beautiful, and one way to do that is soft washing the roof, siding and deck. Bacteria and algae can grow over time on your siding and roof. Soft washing, applying an eco-friendly biodegradable treatment, will ensure these organisms are completely killed. This way those ugly stains will be properly removed, leaving your home restored to its former beauty.

2. Energy Savings

Those dark stained roofs are not only unattractive, they can also be causing your electric bills to skyrocket throughout the summer season. Dingy roofs tend to be darker in color, meaning they attract significantly more sunlight than clean roofs. This can cause excess heat to accumulate in your attic and lead to a warmer home and higher electric bills. Soft washing your roof can reduce your cooling costs during those warmer summer months.

3. Extended Lifespan

Like we stated above, dirtier roofs attract more sunlight due to their dark color. This not only causes your home to be warmer, it also ages your roof prematurely. The same can go for the siding on your home. Plus, the bacteria, algae and moss will contribute to the degradation of your home and decrease the service life by up to 50 percent. Soft washing not only cleans your home, it preserves and extends the lifespan of it as well. Plus, who wouldn’t want their roof, siding and deck to survive for a long time?

4. Eco-Friendly

While saving on your cooling costs is a great benefit, another is the impact soft washing has on the environment (or the lack of an impact). To help you clean your roof or siding, our technicians will soft wash your house and utilize a biodegradable solution which destroys the offending organisms at their base.
