If it rains on it, we can clean it!
In the Pacific Northwest, moss, algae, and lichens are a very common problem for many homeowners. These organisms can infest the exterior surfaces of your home including your roof, siding and soffits, gutter faces, patio, deck, driveway, and even your outdoor furniture. Our cleaning process doesn’t just clean these surfaces, but treats them so as to prevent them from growing back. We utilize only water-based biodegradable chemicals and are a participant of the SoftWash Systems Good Stewards Program. SoftWashing is the safe alternative to pressure washing and uses 1/3 the water of pressure washing. Additionally, SoftWashing will last four to six times longer than a standard pressure washing and it doesn't erode the surface.
With a 99.9% success rate over mold, fungus, algae, bacteria, and moss, this treatment will last up to 6x longer than the standard pressure wash!

Static belay system setup and use
With the tools we use, we are able to do most of our work with both feet on the ground.
However, when cleaning skylights, solar panels or cleaning gutters, there are situations when working from the ground or even a ladder is not an option.
This short video, shows one of our technicians working on a relatively low pitch yet slippery roof to clean some windows.
For this job, we used a static belay as a hand hold for a little extra stability and insurance, but on steeper pitches we also carry a full body harness and can use ascent and decent devices to facilitate working on pitches in excess of 14/12.
In this video, you will see us deploy a static belay system over a pitched roof using a target line. The PVC ball allows the heavier rope to be pulled over the peak of the roof without snagging on the shingles or damaging the roof, the leather sheath the rope is running through is pulled into position and also serves to protect the roof from damage by the friction of the rope. Finally, both ends of the rope are secured using a super eight knot and locking steel carabiners.
Let me know if you have any questions about the techniques used or the gear we employ. Be safe!
