​​THE SCIENCE BEHIND WHAT'S KILLING YOUR ROOF

Low-Pressure Solution Cleaning Process 

The House Shampoo proprietary low-pressure cleaning process is a gentle thorough delivery system to apply and saturate the target area with customized solutions while protecting the surrounding features and flora.  For roof cleaning, this process is the only one recommended by the Asphalt Roofing Manufacturers Association (ARMA)  protecting your shingle material warranty.


For siding, whether it's vinyl, cedar, aluminum, or shake, each have vulnerabilities that make pressure washing a poor choice. Water forced into gaps and weep holes, aggressive 3,000+ psi pressure on wood, all increase the odds for damage to these expensive materials.  Low-pressure, specialized "soft-wash" equipment and customizable solutions are the safest most thorough means for gently cleaning siding and a full array of sensitive exterior features.   

​ ​ ​THE FUTURE OF CLEANING IS HERE

Protect Your Investments

 Office, commercial and special use properties, including mini-malls, banks, municipal, churches, or public arenas deserve the love.  Every exterior feature of your buildings can be rejuvenated to preserve your property ...

Black Streaks - Algae - Lichen - Moss

It is imperative to understand the science behind roof algae and lichen infestation, and why ignoring this condition can result in the loss of up to 50% of the roof's lifespan - a very expensive consequence.  The technical name for what is causing the black roof stains is Gloeocapsa Magma, an airborne algae that feeds on limestone filler in your shingle material.  Lichens are a parasite of algae and subsists on it as it's food source.  Notice the drawing to the right and you will see the symbiotic relationship that these two spores have with each other.  Lichen infestation accelerates the damage to the shingles with root tentacles that embed themselves in the protective shingle granules.  With time, this results in the granules dislodging creating voids that expose the shingle mat to weather and UV rays.  Moss acts as a moisture trap preventing cedar and asphalt roofing material from fully drying out resulting in rot.

​​"House washing" is a phrase used to describe exterior cleaning.  

It can include every feature from the gutter line down.  

Knowing what can be cleaned isn't as crucial as HOW it will be cleaned.







​House washing done correctly avoids the hazards of pressure washing.  
There is only one way to safely and gently achieve 4-5x better cleaning 
results, and nothing in the market today beats the House Shampoo
"soft-wash" low-pressure solution application process.
Protect the target while producing stunning results.
