What's The Difference Between Pressure Washing And Soft Washing?

Pressure washing and soft washing are two popular exterior cleaning methods, but they differ greatly. Pressure washing refers to the use of high-pressurized, heated water spray to power through stains and built-up grime on hardscapes like concrete. While pressure washing is an effective way to eliminate embedded dirt and discoloration on tough surfaces, it's too harsh for areas like your roof, siding, and other delicate exteriors.

Instead, experts use soft washing on these surfaces. Unlike the high-powered water spray of traditional pressure washing, soft washing uses mild water spray and chemical cleaning agents to gently dissolve dirt, stains, and organic growths. Soft washing offers a deep clean without the risk of damage to any of your exteriors. At Roof Revivers, we use soft washing to provide all our roof cleaning services. You can enjoy the results of a revitalized roof without the worry of undue wear and tear.

Should I DIY My Pressure Washing?

While DIY efforts can work for smaller projects, it's generally safer to leave large pressure washing jobs to the pros. Pressure washing might seem easy at a glance, but it takes skill and experience to get the job done right without causing damage. Using incorrect water pressure can lead to badly damaged exteriors and the need for expensive repairs. To ensure that you're getting the best possible results without the risk of damage it's best to contact your local professional for any house washing, concrete cleaning, or roof cleaning you need.

Do You Work With Commercial Clients?

Absolutely! Roof Revivers is more than happy to accommodate our local business owners and other commercial property owners. There's no job too big or small for our team, and we're equipped to handle any need you may have.

How Do I Know When It's Time To Get A Roof Repair Or Replacement?

There are a few tell-tale signs that indicate your roof may need a repair or replacement. For one, your roof's age comes into play. The lifespan of many roofs doesn't exceed 30 years, so if you're creeping up on that mark, you need to start keeping an eye on the condition of your roof. Also, water leaks, shingle disintegration, and harsh weather conditions contribute to the need for roof repair or replacement. If you've noticed black granules - deposits from your shingles - in your lawn or driveway, then it's a clear indication that your shingles are breaking down and need attention.

Water seeping into your attic also points to holes or cracks in your roof that need expedient repair. When it comes to the state of your roof, it's important to pay close attention and to invest in professional roof inspection annually. Your roof is a major player in keeping you and your family safe from the elements, so it's important to prioritize its care and maintenance. If you feel that your roof needs professional assessment, then reach out to Roof Revivers.
