Question: Peter, I live in Westchester County and have heard a lot about Westchester Powerwashing doing business in my area, in particular my town of White Plains and my brother’s in Hawthorne. I am a bit confused, do you “pressure wash” a roof or “power wash” a roof. Thank you for answering, I am looking to get my roof cleaned and want to make sure it is done right so I figured I would ask you, a professional. – M.V. in White Plains, New York
Answer: What is the difference between “pressure washing” and “power washing” is a great question. It is a important to know the difference as pressure washing and power washing are not the same. Remember, pressure washing a roof can cause damage to shingles as well as other components of your roof.
Pressure washing uses highly pressurized water to spray off mold, algae, dirt, and grime. While this is effective for metal or concrete roofs, it has been known to damage shingles.
The best way to clean shingles is a process we use called power washing which means we use the most effective methods of careful-wash roof cleaning recommended by ARMA. As Members of the Power Washers of North America (PWNA), we use only safe and effective cleaners that kills mold instantly.
