Roof Washing in Action:

Benefits of Soft Washing your house verses Pressure Washing:

Soft washing is safer for your roof. Soft washing uses 50 to 70 psi compared to pressure washing that uses 1500 to 4000psi.
Soft washing results in a deeper clean. Soft washing kills all growth and stains whereas pressure washing only blasts the top layer off.
Your roof and exterior surfaces will remain cleaner, longer. Soft washing lasts 1 to 2 years whereas pressure washing typically only lasts a few months.
Your roof warranty will remain in effect. Soft washing will not void your manufacturers warranty, however pressure washing your roof will void your warranty.
Your roof cleaning and soft washing is protected with liability insurance

We are a fully insured company with $2 million in public liability coverage to protect your home & property.

Cleaning a roof in Vancouver with Soft Washing processonserves water compared to Pressure Washing

Compared to pressure washing which uses 240 gallons an hour, soft washing your roof uses between 30 to 60 gallons an hour! That's right, our soft wash system uses about 1/3 the water of pressure washers. Conserving the water in your area is yet another benefit you'll receive when you choose Prima Soft Wash & Exterior Cleaning.

House washing in Vancouver with soft washing process

Soft Washing is a unique and extensive cleaning process that can be applied to all of your exterior surfaces such as your roof, house siding, wood fences, patio decks, brick and stone walls, painted surfaces, concrete surfaces, and even underground parking lots.

What is Soft Washing?

Instead of using high pressure that can damage your surfaces, soft washing is performed using special low pressure pumps designed to clean all surfaces. These pumps gently spray at 40 to 60 psi which is about the same pressure as your garden hose. Using this pressure, we spray our eco-friendly detergents and solutions on your roof, house, driveway or fence, all you need to do is sit back and watch your dirty surfaces come clean right before your eyes, without any risk of damage from high pressure. Because our detergents deep clean, attacking everything at its roots instead of just blasting it off with high pressure, your surfaces will stay clean much longer.

How will Prima Soft Wash clean my roof?

When we arrive, our technicians will apply a first coat to the most affected areas then we'll apply a second coat to your entire surface. The longer the solution dwells on the surface, the deeper the clean. For this reason, we apply our solution without rinsing. We let nature, with the rain and wind do the rest. After a good rainfall your entire roof will be fully rinsed and clean.

Besides it looking ugly, do I really need to clean my roof?

If not cleaned regularly, your roof will deteriorate much faster and you may end up replacing your roof much sooner than necessary. A dirty roof can also lower your resale value, and it's also possible that your insurance company may cancel your policy if your roof is not properly maintained. Statistics show that you may lose up to 50% of your roof life due to moss, algae, lichen or improper maintenance of your roof.

The earlier you treat and clean your roof the better!

How long before I start to see results?

As soon as our crew leaves, your moss will be dead! From green to white. Your black stains/streaks which is called Gloeocapsa Magma will also start to disappear. After a good rain fall you might see a white soapy film on your roof, don’t worry that’s the rain re-activating our solution again and finally washing it all away.

Do I need to be home during my roof cleaning?

You can be home if you want to, but no, it's not necessary. However, we will need access to your water supply. It's also important that you close all your windows before leaving and that there are no vehicles parked in your driveway.

How much does it cost to clean my roof?

Algae, fungus and moss growth will cause premature roof granule loss, and shorten the overall lifespan of your roof. So you save money because your roof will last longer. Also, when algae and Gloeocapsa Magma turn your roof black, it becomes less reflective, and it retains heat. If you use an air conditioner system in your home it has to work harder to overcome the increased heat load, costing you more money! Don’t replace your roof, maintain it!

How often do I need to clean my roof?

The initial clean will kill everything that’s eating your roof, and make it shine again. However, because of our wet climate here in the northwest, we offer a yearly maintenance package for you roof, at a discount! That way your roof will last for many years to come!

Do you offer discounts to realtors?

Yes we do! In British Columbia we understand the market in that realtors need to move their inventory fast, which can be challenging to do when a potential buyer notices an infested roof neglected for years and a property dirty and stained from top to bottom. You might lose the buyer based on what they see outside before they even enter the house!

Sullivan Cleaning Process

Bruce Sullivan is one of the nation's leading experts on Cedar Shake Roof Cleaning. He has developed an innovative Eco-friendly process that cleans and preserves your cedar shakes without toxic chemicals, pressure washing or stepping onto your roof. Prima Soft Wash Inc has been trained by Bruce and is an authorized member of Bruce Sullivan's Certified Cedar Shakes Roof Cleaner's Network serving Southern the Lower Mainland of BC.

Our Cleaning Solution Is Safe, Non-Toxic And Will Not Harm Your Home, Plants, Or Pets In Any Way:

Formulated with a Citrus based cleaner
Contains a Fungicide, Mildewcide & Algaecide that kills all wood-destroying infestations such as moss, mold, mildew, algae, lichen & fungi.
Contains a surfactant soap to help the solution cling to the shakes.
