  1. Safeway Softwash Solutions is proud to be servicing the south eastern Massachusetts and Rhode Island areas! Not only are roof stains ugly, but they are also destructive! Did you know that Algae, Moss, and Lichen are the #1 cause of premature roof failure? If left unattended, these growths can lead to shingle deterioration, as well as causing the shingles to lift and break over time. Some Insurance companies are now requesting the homeowners get their roof cleaned before they will insure them because they realize how damaging this growth can be. A new roof can cost anywhere from $5000 - $40,000... Roof cleaning are only a fraction of that! The best way to extend the life of your roof and keep it looking new is to have your roof cleaned using our low pressure process. Note: Never allow anyone to clean your roof using a pressure washer. This will actually strip the granules from the shingle, decreasing the life of your roof! Are you a Realtor, or do you plan on selling your home soon? A clean roof creates INSTANT curb appeal! Increased curb appeal allows you to sell your home quicker and for more money! You wouldn't sell a dirty car, would you? Create a lasting first impression for your potential buyers! We also offer other services to keep your property looking new, such as House Washing, Concrete Cleaning, Deck/Fence Washing, Inside/Outside Gutter Cleaning, and Window Washing. Increase Your Curb Appeal Today! Call/Text (508) 644-0790 Or visit us at: www.SafewaySoftwash.com
  2. Certified Roof Cleaners, at the RCIA, have cleaned roofs for many years, without the damaging results of using a pressure washing machine. http://roof-cleaning-institute.activeboard.com/index.spark Most of us started out pressure washing them, but could see the severe granule loss taking place on the shingles and turning the pressure down didn’t solve the problem. First off, it takes a certain amount of pressure to remove the black algae – period! So, if it requires say 1000 psi of pressure at the gun tip, which will work on shingles, but not on most tile, then it’s semantics. If at 2000 psi at the gun tip, we can clean a roof holding our pressure washer gun tip say 1 foot away, then, if I turn the pressure down to 1/2 that -1000psi -, Then, I have to move in to 6″ away to accomplish the same exact cleaning results. In other words cutting the pressure in half, means you must get twice as close-that brings the actual pressure back to 2000psi. Try it with your garden hose and your hand! Same principle! With tile, most roofs have at least a light glazing on top of a slurry coating {paint} as they come from the manufacturers. Pressure washing can remove or dull that glazing. If the roof has been pressure cleaned before and that glazing is mostly gone, then the slurry coating, creating your roofs coloring begins to be removed with that pressure. This will turn a red tile roof into a pinkish roof. It will turn other colors pale. Eventually, it will reach the plain cement the tile is made of, here and there, showing bare cement areas. Some companies use a “Surface Cleaning Machine†and give their cleaning method nice names like shampooing your roof. These machines are made for flat surfaces and are great on driveways and cement parking lots, where almost no damage can occur. They are the worst thing you can do to a tile roof though. The powerful jets are angled to cut sideways, also, they are set at an exact amount of inches above whatever surface they are set on. With flat cement that is perfect! Tile is not a flat surface, so the high parts get blasted badly, while the lower portions of the tile, barely come clean-if at all. If you went up and inspected such a cleaning job, you would find the former sharp, cut top edges to be somewhat rounded now. You would also find many small black lines of leftover, living algae. If any algae is left, it will continue to spread and need re-cleaning within 2 years! An RCIA, Roofing Manufacturer Approved chemically cleaned, soft-washed tile roof is easily evenly coated and all algae is killed and disintegrated. That’s why a Non-Pressure Roof cleaning, as explained below, lasts just about twice as long as any type of pressure washing / shampoo style cleaning can. Fortunately, you are not stuck having to accept roof damage in order to have a nice, clean, healthy roof! Many years ago some of the roofing manufacturers, came up with a formula to “chemically clean†roofs, using no pressure at all. It’s called by a few names “Non-Pressure†“No-Pressure†Soft-Washing†“Chemical Cleaning†many of us at RCIA started using this method and the chemicals specified by the roofing manufacturers themselves as well as their Roofing Manufacturers Association {ARMA} back in the 1990′s and found that it cleaned tile just as well as it cleaned shingles! The roofing manufacturers specify a mixture of about a 3-5% solution of Chlorine Bleach and a little TSP {Tri S Phosphate} Nowadays, there’s always someone trying to sell you something. Non Bleach alternative chemicals are on the market and I try them as they come out. They all use the “Eco-Friendly†“Green†sales approach, to sell their chemicals with. Many of us at RCIA have tried these new chemicals, but they did not do a nearly good enough job, for us to sell them to our customers. I personally tried Spray and Forget, Wet and Forget and M-1 Deck & Roof Cleaner. I do not believe I could satisfy my customers, with the less than "so so" results I got. Plus, the instructions on most of these say "Wait 2 or 3 months for results" That's the "FORGET" part :-) Also, I like to know what I am spraying on your roof. On the label of these products, they do not tell you what chemicals are in the product. So, are they safe and eco-friendly? Who knows? So, none are products we could use on our customers roofs in good conscience. Plus, because, as I said, most of these new "gimmick" chemicals say the roof won't come clean for a few months after applying their chemicals. Try spraying a customers roof with one of these "homeowner specials" and then ask to be paid, telling them their roof will look good in a few months! Homeowners are smarter than that! We do know what to expect from bleach though! We wash our clothes in it, disinfect our kitchen food preparation areas with it, swim in it in our pools and drink it in our city water etc! When it dries, it turns back into salt, which is what it is made from. You can go to the websites below and read directly from the makers of your roofing. You will see that what this tech bulletin I made says, is what many makers of roofing also say. The links below all say to clean roofs with the non-pressure RCIA method! They all also say specifically "DO NOT PRESSURE WASH" {GAF Roofing Manufacturer} http://georgoulisroofing.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/01/Algae_Staining_on_Shingled_Roof_Surfaces_-_Steep_Slope_Techn-43-808-v3.pdf {ARMA Roofing Manufacturer Association Cleaning Bulletin} http://www.asphaltroofing.org/sites/default/files/tech-bulletin/tb_217.pdf {CORNING Roofing Manufacturer} Click number 1 "algae growth" http://roofing.owenscorning.com/homeowner/thingsyoushouldknow/needaroof.aspx The ARMA also says not to allow anyone to apply any roof coatings. This is a common sales gimmick. Usually pressure washing companies-not roof cleaning companies-will pressure wash your roof and then sell you an after coating, which they claim will keep your roof clean 2 years. Any properly cleaned roof should stay clean longer than that, without paying for a Roof-A-Fung-A-Cide treatment, which the rain will wash right off! They sell this stuff, because they want to reapply it every 2 years and lock you into a contract. Read the ARMA warning below. http://www.asphaltroofing.org/sites/default/files/tech-bulletin/tb_227.pdf NOTE PICTURE OF ROOF BEING PRESSURE WASHED. THEN COMPARE WHAT YOU SEE IN MY VIDEOS. HOW WOULD YOU PREFER YOUR ROOF BE TREATED? Videos of me cleaning a couple of roofs:
  3. I'm just going to copy/paste what I posted on facebook for the benefit of our roof cleaners here. Dirt daubers. I've tried it all. I have/had my own method using a weak caustic mix, which worked great for daubers, but is dangerous and difficult to use. Bring in the dragon juice. Oh boy. Andy Vickers this stuff is amazing for daubers. Listen to me folks. We have some of the worst daubers you can imagine. A lot of the stuff people say to use, our daubers will laugh at, and you'll be up close with a toothbrush hand scrubbing like a clown. Not any more. Dragon Juice seriously erases these things like nobody's business. At 20-1 ratio they melt like a hot knife through butter. A little agitation with a brush, and they are toast. This is the holy grail of dauber removal. No damage to anything surrounding, no streaking paint from acids, no melting paint off aluminum with caustic. None of that. Check out the video.

  5. There is a great misconception among homeowners about roof cleaning! I have owned a pressure Cleaning business here in Charlotte and Southern Sarasota County Florida since 1989. Chuck Bergman Pressure Cleaning. 941-698-1959 In around 1991 I found out that the roofing manufacturers say "Do Not Pressure Wash Roofing" So, this is not a new idea! These manufacturers clearly lay out a cleaning method to be used under their warranty and the accepted cleaning agents, that should be applied to their products, to clean them, removing the black / green algae / mold that discolors and eventually destroys the roof. These manufacturers do not want to pay for these damages under the provided warranty, so they give cleaning instructions. I will provide 4 links to such manufacturers and you will see that they all say the same basic thing "Apply bleach, TSP and water" "Do not pressure wash" Of course, because they have this in writing, other methods can void your roofs warranty and will do it damage! The reason I know there is a widespread "misconception" is that most phone calls I get, still say "I need my roof Pressure Cleaned" or "I need my roof Pressure Washed" or "I need my roof Power washed" As I said, around 1991 I stopped pressure blasting roofs clean and started the gentle cleaning process the roofing manufacturers allow to be used under their roofing warranty. So, my business is now Chuck Bergman Roof Cleaning and Pressure Washing. As professional roof cleaners, we have an organization for educating the public. http://roof-cleaning-institute.activeboard.com/index.spark The purpose is to teach pressure washing guys how to clean roofs properly and to educate the homeowners, so that they can avoid the damage caused by pressure washing-power washing-pressure cleaning guys. What a pressure washing machine does to a roof is irreversible. First, here are 2 videos of us cleaning roofs, using the roofing manufacturers specified method. Then there is a picture of a roof being blasted clean with a pressure washer. Compare which you would want. http://www.tubechop.com/watch/474113 {HOW NOT TO CLEAN A ROOF!
