Our "Safe Wash" Approach

Los Gato's Original Roof Cleaning Professionals

Avoid harmful pressure washing and come to the experts at Pacific Exterior for the safe cleaning, restoration, and maintenance of your home or commercial facility. We have years of experience working on both residential and commercial projects, and our methods are safe for a variety of building materials.

While power washing may remove visible contaminants temporarily, it is biological growths (such as algae, bacteria, fungus, lichen, mold, and moss) that are the leading causes of dark surface staining and shading. These eyesores are resistant to the various pressure washing techniques typically used by cleaning contractors.

Additionally, traditional pressure washing methods are often destructive to exterior building surfaces and products, so while it may blast away the surface dirt and debris, permanent damage may also result. In fact, several renowned exterior building brands like Sto, Dryvit, and GAF advise against the use of high-pressure cleaning.

We utilize non-pressure methods on a variety of commercial and residential roofs and exteriors to provide superior, consistent, and long-lasting results.

We can clean:

Synthetic stucco (EIFS)
Metal siding & roofs
Clay Tile
Asphalt shingles
Commercial cool roofs (TPO and PVC)
And more...

committed to customer satisfaction, BBB A+ Rating for 12 years straight…

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

I needed someone to clean the years of moss build-up on my composition roof. I saw the "before and after" photos on Pacific Exterior's website when I googled "roof cleaning services" and decided to try them. Wow, they did not disappoint! The guys arrived at 7:30 am and worked ALL day. The roof looks fantastic (like new), and they cleaned up everything and more! You couldn't expect a better job than what they delivered! I highly recommend them! And the guys were super nice too!

Pacific Exteriors transformed our new home more than we could have ever imagined. He restored our roof to a brand-new appearance and health. He explained what they would do, why, and how. It was so comfortable. No noise, mess, surprises, chemical smells, or issues. I was very happy to realize after they left that they also cleaned our gutters and WASHED ALL THE WINDOWS. What a special treat that was. We look forward to continuing to work with Eric on additional projects to keep our new home looking its best and keeping our investment at its highest value.

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.
