Asphalt Roof Cleaning

Roofs are frequently made with asphalt shingles for a number of reasons. Asphalt shingles are versatile, relatively affordable, easy to install, and they work well with a number of design styles.

That said, like any roofing material, asphalt shingles can and will get dirty over time. It’s important to hire qualified professionals to clean them when this happens. If you try to clean your roof without the proper equipment and experience, you may actually do more harm than good. Additionally, your roof’s lifespan will also diminish if you wait too long to schedule service.

These aren’t issues you need to worry about when you hire Prima Soft Wash. Offering asphalt roof cleaning services to homeowners throughout Vancouver, West Point Grey, Kitsilano, North Vancouver, and the entire Fraser Valley, we’ll make sure your roof stays in the best possible condition for as long as possible.

Why Asphalt Roof Cleaning is Crucial for Vancouver Homeowners

Asphalt roof shingles that haven’t been cleaned on a regular basis often develop noticeable black streaks. Unfortunately, these streaks aren’t merely unattractive blemishes. They actually indicate the presence of Gloeocapsa magma a species of bacteria that often finds a home on asphalt roof shingles.

Extensive outbreaks of these black streaks will also have a negative impact on your home’s curb appeal, which impacts its value. That’s a good reason to schedule regular asphalt roof cleaning service. In the long run, doing so is actually a smart financial move!

More importantly, when these black streaks are not cleaned away, it (and other organisms it attracts such as moss and lichens) start to eat away at your shingles.

In the short term, this leaves your home exposed to rain, snow, ice, and other potentially damage-causing elements. You could end up with costly water damage and/or mold problems if you don’t address the issue fast. Of course, in the long term, you’ll need to replace your roofing sooner than you planned to.

Help from Vancouver's Asphalt Roof Cleaning Experts

Yes, cleaning your asphalt shingles on a regular basis is important. That said, don’t make the mistake of trying to clean them on your own. You could actually cause additional damage if you go the DIY route.

That’s because many homeowners don’t realize that asphalt roofing shingles aren’t durable enough to withstand common cleaning methods. For example, if you were to take a power washer to your roof, you’d probably damage it. That leaves you with another bill you didn’t expect.

You’re much better off hiring the professionals at Prima Soft Wash. We use a special method that delivers thorough results without harming your shingles:

About Our Soft Wash Method

As you might have guessed, soft washing a roof involves a much more gentle approach than power washing. We combine safe, specially formulated detergents with water at very low pressure to gently (but, again, thoroughly) remove all algae, grime, and other unwanted materials from your roofing. This is the safest way to maximize its lifespan. However, it’s also a process that requires professional experience.

Adam & his partner were most efficient in their cleaning of our home, and despite the initial rain, the house turned out beautifully! Thus I would highly recommend Prima Soft Wash...

Our Strata complex has used Prima Soft Wash for the last two years to sweep our roof and then wash all the building flashing and windows. We are very pleased with their service and the excellent work they did.

My home looked like it was scrubbed clean without the hassle of having to most things around, although Adam was so thoughtful in helping move items around my house.

Connie Ens

They came, did an amazing job and all I have to do is enjoy my clean house and yard. They even pulled out all of the "junk" from the back yard that was on the concrete or blocking the siding, cleaned it AND put it back.

Winnie Cheung

Had my home exterior siding and roof cleaned. They did an excellent job! Having not had the exterior cleaned in over 5 years, the house now looks incredible. Will definitely have them do it again in the future.
