Our "Safe Wash" Approach

Advanced Roof and Exterior Cleaning

Pacific Exterior is a knowledgeable leader in the safe cleaning, restoration, and maintenance of residential and commercial exteriors and roofs.

The use of high pressure can temporarily remove surface contaminants, but this does not eliminate the real cause of most surface staining and shading, which is biological growth, including bacteria, algae, moss, lichen, fungus, and mold.

While traditional pressure washing methods are effective on certain surfaces, they can be very destructive to many of the most common construction materials in use today. Manufacturers of the most widely used exterior building products (including Dryvit, Sto, GAF, and many others) consistently direct against the use of high pressure.

Our advanced, non-pressure methods consistently achieve outstanding, immediate, and long-lasting results on all types of commercial and residential roofs and exteriors.

Experienced Professionals

We are Northern California’s original non-pressure cleaning professionals and have pioneered advanced, safe, cleaning techniques since 2010. As an NRCIA certified roof inspector and building contractor, with decades of experience, we have inspected and installed all the materials that we now clean and restore.

Our work has been featured multiple times in international trade magazines. In January of 2014, an article we authored on bacterial growth patterns in building exteriors was released in ‘eclean’ magazine. This article was a direct result of the study of bacterial growth in Monterey Bay’s unique climate.

Our article, “Bacterial Stud Striping” continues to be the only information available on the subject. The best solution to this local issue is our innovative “Safe Wash” method, not high pressure.

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.
