Our "Safe Wash" Approach

Carmel-by-the-Sea's Original Roof Cleaning Professionals

Pacific Exterior is Carmel-by-the-Sea's original, non-pressure roof and exterior cleaning professional.

Since 2010, We have pioneered alternative methods of cleaning and restoring residential and commercial exteriors. The results of our "Safe Wash" approach are far superior and long-lasting than traditional methods.

While pressure or power washing has been the industry standard, it can be incredibly damaging. For that reason, many of the leading names in exterior building products such as Sto, Dryvit, GAF, and others, strongly advise against the use of high pressure on their products due to the risk of physical damage to the surface material.

While pressure washing may appear to render acceptable results, it is ineffective at removing the primary cause of unsightly exterior surfaces. The principal contaminants are biological and include algae, bacteria, fungus, lichen, mold, and moss. Our Safe Wash methods and custom blended cleaning solutions eradicate this organic growth and leave exteriors far cleaner than pressure washing can. The results are immediate and last for years.

What Our Clients Have to Say

Genuine, friendly, professional, experienced and absolutely
committed to customer satisfaction, BBB A+ Rating for 12 years straight…

Excellent 5.0 Star rating based on Google, Yelp, BBB and Yahoo reviews.

Pacific Exterior has helped us in January of 2020 by doing an absolutely fabulous job eliminating all of the mold from our asphalt shingled roof after years of neglect. As a result, now, the 30-year-old roof looks like new. In addition, they returned in April to eliminate any mold on our Carmel Valley Stone patio, which was not only losing its color, but was becoming a safety hazard after any rain. The result of their process was astonishing. Our large stone patio is now completely free of any growth, and it has a fresh, clean look that brightens up the entrance to our home. I strongly recommend them for any related work.

My house was really in need of some professional help, and Eric MORE than accomplished the job. The difference is remarkable. I am so pleased. Most importantly, Eric is extremely honest and professional. Outstanding quality workmanship and great concern about his customers’ satisfaction. So refreshing! Thank you so much, and I will definitely be referring you to family and friends.

Frequently Asked Questions

Yes. Cleaning your roof can save you money in more ways than one...

  • First, the algae and fungus that grow can cause premature roof granule loss, and shorten roof shingle life. So you save money because your roof lasts longer
  • Second, when the algae turn your roof black, it becomes less reflective, and it retains heat; If you use an air conditioner it has to work harder to overcome the increased heat load, costing money in electric bills.
  • Third, the aesthetics of cleaning your roof when it comes to selling your home can not only save you money but can make you money too.

It would be appreciated if you could do a few things the night before we come out to do the roof cleaning service:

  • Move all lawn equipment, furniture, and/or toys inside or away from the building.
  • Keep all animals inside or out away from the home.
  • Put any special plants out away from the house (if possible.)
  • Park vehicles on street or in the garage.

Pretty much just clear everything out away from around the house. We will be rinsing areas around the building during the treatment.

We almost exclusively use equipment no louder than a whisper. Occasionally we use a compressor for large commercial projects.
