The window washers were efficient and very nice. For some reason, was not able to get email quote without contacting Josh a few times. However, it all worked out.

Oz wash is a Awesome Wash. Nick did a great job. Scheduling the work was easy and he was very flexible. He was here on time or would text me if he was going to be late. My roof and gutters are now sparkling clean. We are very happy with all the work. He was also very conscientious about cleaning up after himself. I would highly recommend him.

Jorge did a great job cleaning my roof which had quite a bit of moss build up, cleaned the gutters and washed the house and yard up once complete. He did great work in a timely manner at a great price. I would recommend him.

I hired Anderson Landscape to clean my gutters. Most companies were about equally priced. I hired Anderson because they presented themselves the most professionally. They emailed me an actual bid, detailing what the price included. I liked that they said they would use a leaf blower to clear off the entire roof in addition to cleaning the gutters. I also liked that they clearly stated they were licensed, bonded and insured. I didn't want to be worried should someone fall off my roof!

Very happy with Tobias Exterior Care, Ian was great to work with. As a property manager, I was hesitant to hire off a website we haven't used before, but could not be happier with the results - we had a fairly large project that consisted of roof cleaning/moss removal and leaf guard installation on 84 apartment homes (6 buildings).

Nathon did an excellent job cleaning the roof of the house. The fact that he takes pictures before and after is a testimony to how thorough he is. His rates are reasonable and I will hire him again.

Kirk, Travis and the IBEX crew were professional, punctual, hard working and friendly in completing roof and gutter repairs on the house and grounds were completely cleaned when the job was completed. After tornado damage, an emergency call was made to IBEX and within a few hours, Travis was able to tarp damaged portions of the roof and prevent water damage inside the house. Kirk identified additional repair costs that were overlooked by the insurance company and provided a detailed line item description so the insurance company could quickly approve. Kirk brought a sample of new shingles and we saw a color difference in comparing to original shingles. He explained they could complete repairs so color difference would not be that noticeable from the street. Also, Kirk showed me some moss growth on a shaded part of the roof and said they would remove the moss and spread moss killer at no additional cost. Very impressed with IBEX and quality of work. Great work ethics. I would definitely use them again.

I used All-Clean! SoftWash for my roof. I had looked around but I was very impressed with how professional and prompt Brandon and his employees were. When they arrived at my house they made contact with me to let me know they were onsite, I was impressed by this as not many companies do this! Once the job was complete they notified me again that they were done, we did a walk around of my house and they left. It was a great experience and I will certainly use them again!

Very professional and experienced team. They did a great job on pressure washing my house. And then I had them back to treat my roof, and clean my gutters. I will use them again next year.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

Why do I need to clean my roof?

Over time, algae, moss, lichen, dirt and even salt (if you’re near the ocean) can build up on your roof. These buildups can affect the look and function of your roof unless removed. The buildup of organic materials such as moss on a shingle roof can prevent water from sloughing off as it normally would. Trapped water can rot the roof or cause early deterioration of your shingles. Even if you don’t have a shingle roof, moss and lichen absorb water, and that wet material adds weight and stress to your roof — as well as providing a home for insects and other pests, and collecting dirt. For reflective, cool roofs that redirect heat away from the home, algae and moss growths can hamper their ability to deflect the sun, which can affect utility bills. Visually, moss, dirt and algae growths on a roof can have a negative effect on perceived home value and curb appeal. For example, black algae streaks on your roof may cause a potential homebuyer to assume that the roof might need repair or replacement, when it only needs to be cleaned.

Can a roof be cleaned?

Yes roofs can be cleaned, and yes, it’s a real thing. Roof cleaning may actually be a wise investment to prolong the life of your roof. Overgrowth of moss, grime, lichen or algae can all shorten the life of your roof. If you have black streaks growing on your roof, they are likely caused by gloeocapsa magma algae spores that have landed on your roof and taken up residence. Once the algae has grown into streaks, the organism has usually been growing for several months and it’s high time to have it removed. If you live in a rainy part of the country, such as the Pacific Northwest, there’s a good chance you’ll find moss growing on your roof at some point. The northern part of your roof, as well as any parts that remain shaded all day, will provide a wet, cool haven for moss to flourish. Unfortunately this water-absorbing moss can damage your shingle roof, leading to rot if not removed. Beyond roof health and function, a clean roof can boost your curb appeal and potentially boost your home’s resale value. The national average for roof cleaning costs ranges between $270 and $350, although prices can be higher depending on how large your roof is, how steep your roof is, and what type of cleaning is necessary. Typically pros use either a pressure wash or chemical wash (made with a concentrated bleach solution) to remove algae, lichen, moss and dirt.

What chemicals are used to clean roofs?

Roof cleaning is done to remove moss, lichen, algae, and buildup of other grime and dirt. There are several methods for roof cleaning, which can include a chemical soft wash, pressure washing, low-pressure washing and hand washing. When a chemical soft wash is used, a bleach mixture is sprayed onto the roof. The bleach-based solution is absorbed by the algae or moss, which dies from exposure to the chemical. The roof is then sprayed with a low-pressure rinse of water, which loosens the now-dead material, allowing it to slide off the roof.

For homeowners, the Asphalt Roofing Manufacturers Association recommends a mixture of 50 percent laundry-strength liquid chlorine bleach and 50 percent water. Professional roof cleaning companies will use an industrial mixture that is still safe but may be more effective in eliminating algae and moss growths. Asphalt shingle roofs are the most common type of roof, but each roofing material will have its own cleaning needs, so it’s best to consult with your roofing pro before diving in. Don’t do it yourself unless you can safely navigate your roof, the chemicals and a sprayer system. When in doubt, leave it to the pros.

How much does it cost to clean a roof?

The national average for roof cleaning costs ranges between $270 and $350. Factors that can affect the cost to clean your roof are the height of your house, the size and pitch (steepness) of your roof, and the complexity of your roof’s design and accessibility. Geographic location also plays a role in roof cleaning costs as regional labor rates and area costs to do business will vary. There are several ways to clean a roof. The most common is pressure washing. Industrial pressure washers can spray over 3,000 pounds per square inch (psi) of water — which is much too powerful for roof cleaning, and may tear off shingles and damage your roof. Confirm that the roof-cleaning pro you choose will only use a low-pressure sprayer to protect your roof investment. For large algae or moss growths, pros often recommend a combination of low-pressure washing with a bleach-based chemical solution. This is referred to soft washing and should handily remove any growths taking over your roof.
