Welcome to Roof Care PDX, the premier provider of professional roof cleaning and moss removal services in the picturesque city of Portland, Oregon. We are committed to safeguarding the lifespan and integrity of your home's roof, ensuring it remains not only visually appealing but also structurally sound for years to come. With our team of experts and proven methods, we guarantee exceptional results that will surpass your expectations.
The Impact of Moss on Your Roof
At first glance, a roof covered in moss may seem innocuous, but if left untreated, it can cause significant damage over time. Moss compromises the integrity of your roof by trapping moisture, leading to shingle degradation and creating an environment conducive to leaks and mold. At Roof Care PDX, we understand the importance of maintaining a clean and moss-free roof, both for its aesthetics and long-term functionality
Specialized Roof Cleaning Methods
When it comes to roof cleaning, we employ a range of specialized techniques tailored to the unique needs of each roof. Our experienced team takes into account factors such as roof age, the type of moss present, and desired outcomes to determine the most effective approach. Depending on the situation, we utilize methods such as the hand-brush method, soft-wash method, or a combination of both for asphalt shingle roofs.
For presidential, architectural, and three-tab asphalt shingles, we employ a comprehensive approach that combines hand-brushing and soft-washing. This process involves carefully removing larger clumps of moss from the roof’s surface, followed by the application of a roof detergent to eliminate any remaining stubborn moss, algae, or lichen. Finally, we ensure a thorough cleanup, all completed in a single day for your convenience.
Tailored Services for Your Roof's Needs
We understand that each roof requires individual attention, and we offer flexible services to accommodate different circumstances. If you’re looking to preserve the integrity of your roof or save on costs, our hand-brush-only service may be the ideal option. While this method may not deliver instant or comprehensive results, it provides a viable solution for those seeking a more budget-friendly approach. Please note that without the use of detergent or water, it may be less effective against roof-staining algae or stubborn sprigs of moss.
Soft-Wash vs. Pressure Wash: The Roof Care PDX Advantage
Selecting the appropriate cleaning method for composition roofs is crucial to avoid unintended consequences. Unlike pressure washing, which can wash off granules, cause leaks, and shorten the life of your roof, Roof Care PDX employs the safe and effective soft-wash method. Our approach involves first killing and loosening roof moss using a specialized detergent. We then wash it away with large volumes of water at lower pressure, ensuring the preservation of your roof’s integrity while achieving exceptional results.
Comprehensive Solutions for Different Roof Types
At Roof Care PDX, we cater to various roof types, including tile roofs, metal roofs, and cedar shake roofs. For tile roof cleaning, we utilize a roof surface cleaner or a high-volume, twin rotary nozzle setup to ensure thorough cleaning. While hand brushing is also an option, we recommend it for less dramatic results. No matter the material, our skilled team possesses the expertise and knowledge to handle any roof cleaning challenge with precision and care.

Experts recommend having your roof cleaned at least once every 1-2 years. However, if you live in an area with a lot of trees, moisture, or your roof is prone to moss or algae growth, you may need your roof cleaned more frequently.

For most roofs we use a soft wash technique which includes a soft bristle brush, a cleaning solution, and a low pressure water system.
