Leave a comment

Tile roof cleaning in Seattle as practiced by PWNG a roof cleaning company located in seattle  is accomplished using the softwash roof cleaning method. The chemical blend for softwashing works extremely well on tile roofs. The chemicals used for tile roof wash each have a certain function:

  • TSP: used to remove rust like stains and dark streaks from tile roofs.
  • Surfactants: used to stop the free flow of the chemical wash. Without surfactants the mixture would rapidly flow down to your gutter and not allow the mix enough time to work.
  • 12.5% Sodium Hypochlorite: This high concentrated bleach is mixed down to 4-6% of its original strength. The Sodium Hypochlorite kills moss, removes stains and brightens tile roofs.

Tile roof cleaning in Seattle are accomplished in many ways but we believe our method is superior for the following reasons:

  1. Our mixtures work fast. We don’t spend hours and hours blowing-scraping and pressure washing roofs. Being less  labor intensive allows us to pass the savings on to our customers. On average we charge 20% less than our competitors.
  2. The chemical mix is designed for tile roofs. This chemical mix is used with great results all thru the Southeastern region of the United States. Tile Roofs are common in the Southeastern region.
  3. Our mix is safer than pressure washing. Pressure washing can do detrimental damage to a roof. Tile roofs are no different. If the spray of water is shot upwards into the tiles lap, water damage is sure to happen.
