Soft Wash Roof Washing: Safety Tips To Consider

by Baltimore Pressure Washers Pressure Washing Company

The growth of mold, moss or algae on your roof is dangerous -- any of these can become so vigorous that they can damage your roof. The safest way to get rid of these problems is by power washing them off.

When considering a soft wash roof washing, you want to make sure that you are doing it safely by wearing gloves, safety shoes and protection for your eyes. If you have never used a power washer before, you should test the pressure on the side of the house at the bottom so you can use the force of the jet spray in your hands before you climb on a ladder and use it on your roof.

To make sure that you are not only doing the pressure roof cleaning safely, you also want to make sure that you select the proper spray tip. You should start with a medium pressure spray pattern, adjusting it accordingly as needed. Here is what you need to do to make sure you are doing this cleaning safely.

  • Wet shingles can be extremely slippery, so make sure that you always stand on a dry area of the roof when spraying and cleaning your roof.
  • Cover a few shingles at a time and move the pressure washer wand closer to the surface if you need more power.
  • Always inspect for any damage that you could be causing the power washer.
  • Aim the spray down the roof, keeping the tip of the wand at least a foot away from the surface, and never aim your roof pressure wash up the roof because it can push water under the roof shingles and cause leakage in your home.
  • Wear shoes that have soft soles that are not going to become slippery when wet and cause you to slip off the roof.

For the best cleaning results and to ensure safety during the job, the job should best be left to professional residential or commercial power washers.
