Low pressure soft wash roof cleaning Melbourne

A Soft Wash for your terracotta or concrete tile roof means removing roof moss, lichen, dirt and pollution grime using our low pressure cleaning system. This means that we can use low pressure for cleaning roof moss and dirt from old terracotta tiles without damaging or breaking them. NOT high pressure that can blast water into your roof space during the cleaning process. Terracotta tiles do not sit snugly together like cement tiles so leaks and ceiling stains can be quite common during the high pressure cleaning process. Because our system is low pressure there is no risk at all in getting leaks or causing water damage to your ceiling.

Low Pressure Soft Wash
This video shows the low pressure we use for soft washing your terracotta roof tiles. You can see the pressure is only tap mains pressure so it won't damage your terracotta roof tiles.
Low pressure roof cleaning ONLY with no harsh chemicals that are corrosive to your spoutings and can stain the exterior paintwork of your home. Moss and lichen growing on old Melbourne roofs and buildings is sometimes seen as a way of conserving the “old” or “vintage” look of a property, but the truth is that the invasive nature of the root systems of this plant material can be very damaging to your Melbourne roof and building fabric. Heavy infestations of lichen and moss can block the drainage channels between the roofing tiles and can cause small roof leaks that over time will cause damage to your roof timbers, leading to wet rot.

Save Water
Softwashing your roof saves the thousands of litres of water used when pressure washing, we only use 100-200 litres of water

Our solution is to use a low pressure spray (about mains water pressure) that cleans and restores the old terracotta roofs or slate tiled roofs without causing any physical damage.
More often than not we don't even walk on your roof to clean it, and we don't walk on your roof to do the quote, potentially breaking tiles.
