Roof treatment and soft washing are two different approaches used in maintaining and cleaning roofs, each with its specific methods and objectives.

Roof Treatment

Roof treatment typically involves the application of chemical solutions that are designed to eliminate specific issues like moss, algae, or lichen growth on the roof. These treatments are often preventative as well as curative, aiming to inhibit future growth.

 

This process might also include the application of sealants or color-restoring agents to enhance the durability and appearance of the roof.

Roof treatments are usually applied less frequently and are more about long-term maintenance and protection of the roof materials.

Roof Soft Wash

Soft washing is a cleaning method that uses low-pressure water mixed with specialized cleaning solutions to remove dirt, grime, organic growth, and other contaminants from roofs and other exterior surfaces.


The solutions used in soft washing often include ingredients that are effective at killing organisms and removing stains without the need for high-pressure washing, which can damage sensitive surfaces like roof shingles.

 

Soft washing is primarily a cleaning process rather than a preventative treatment. It’s performed more regularly than roof treatments to maintain the aesthetic appeal of the roof and prevent the accumulation of harmful organisms and substances.

 

In essence, while roof treatment is more about addressing specific roof issues and enhancing roof longevity through chemical treatments, soft washing focuses on cleaning the roof using gentle methods to preserve its condition and appearance.
