Sometimes our customers let us know how much they appreciate what we do for them.


No New Posts   Bird Spikes

November 28, 2017

We were called to wash the breezeways of Riverbend Condos because they liked the cleaning of their siding almost two years ago. After we cleaned the walls of the breezeways we returned to install bird spikes so the birds could no longer sit on the ledger strip and leave droppings on the vinyl rails below.

No New Posts   Spanish Tile Roof Cleaning San Jose, CA

November 24, 2017

Pacific Exterior was contacted by the owners of this home in San Jose, California after seeing our many positive reviews. They were concerned about dark staining on their clay, Spanish tile roof and its loss of color. They also did not want to have the roof pressure washed. After we cleaned the roof they had us do repairs as well as soft wash cleaning of 3,000 square feet of slate and decorative concrete. 

For damage free roof and exterior cleaning in San Jose as well as the entire Bay Area, contact Pacific Exterior.

No New Posts   Cleaning In The Cooler Days Of Autumn

November 24, 2017

As the days are getting cooler we start a little later in the mornings. We always try to be careful with our scheduling since we get a later start and the sun is sitting so early we can't keep working is a job runs over.

Here are a few projects we did last week in 40 - 50 degree days.


No New Posts   Slate Roof Cleaning & House Softwash in Bryn Mawr, PA by the Roof Wizard....

November 22, 2017

The Roof Wizard washed this huge, 31,000/SF home in Bryn Mawr, PA recently. We softwashed everything from the slate roof, stucco sides, marble railings and fountains, blue stone walkways/patios and even the 2500/SF Guest house. It was our largest residential job ever, both in size and price. It took two crews a full five days to complete. The job was based on a referral from a large commercial project we cleaned last year and will hopefully lead to some more of these monsters.

No New Posts   Improper Concrete Cleaning

November 10, 2017

While estimating a job at a luxury apartment complex, I was appalled to find so many marks in concrete that is about five years old.

While maintenance crews do a much needed job, their employers need to let them do what they know how to do, fix apartments. Just because you can go to the big box store and purchase a pressure washer doesn't mean you know how to use it. These pictures are a good example of using the wrong tip and getting to close with too much pressure. These areas can never be repaired and will always have this look.

Go to our WEBSITE to see the difference of proper concrete cleaning.

No New Posts   Cleaning a slate roof Manhasset NY - 516-804-0447

October 31, 2017

Here's one of the  slate roofs we cleaned last week. Roof was covered in black algae  and lichen. We were able to safely clean this roof with no pressure. Keeping the roof clean helps to keep the house looking it's best and prevents very costly repairs. 

No New Posts   Black spots on siding

October 23, 2017

In a townhouse subdivision, nearly every building has black spots on the vinyl siding. They are present from the ground to about 8 - 10' up. The townhouses are two story with composite roofs and gutters. I did not have any roof mix with me. I did have a bottle of Purple Power and tried that. The black spots on a small test area came right off. They seem to have suddenly appeared this year. The Property Manager is perplexed. Has anyone seen these before?

No New Posts   Slate roofing and patio cleaning - long island - Dirty-roof.com - 516-804-0447

October 31, 2017

Dirty-roof.com cleaned this slate roof and front and rear patios last week. The 80 year old slate roof was in very good condition but was infested with moss, algae and lichen. 

The algae on the stone patios was unsafe and the customer wanted it fixed. When algae gets wet it becomes very slippery to walk on. We were able to remedy this potential hazard and restore some curb appeal at the same time!

No New Posts   Cedar Roof Cleaning and Preserving in Oak Brook and Hinsdale, DuPage County

October 24, 2017

Cedar shakes and shingles have been used for centuries. Cedar wood has proven its longevity in diverse weather climates. Cedar shakes and shingles contain oils that make them naturally resistant to decay. Cedar’s elegant look, insulating property and ability to hold up to wind and impact makes cedar shakes and shingles a great choice for roofing and siding material. You will find many houses with cedar shake roofs in communities such as Oak Brook and Hinsdale in DuPage County, Illinois.

A cedar shake roof can be expected to have a life span of 40 to 60 years. A long life begins with its installation. Proper installation will help maximize the life of cedar shake roof. On the flip side, improper installation will help to shorten the life of the cedar shake roof. Ensuring the maximum lifespan of a cedar shake roof does not stop with proper installation. Ongoing care and maintenance is equally import and a must!

Here are a few cleaning and maintenance tips to help preserve your cedar shake roof:

  • Tree branches hanging over the roof should be kept trimmed away. This will prevent leaves, small branches and other debris from building up and keeping the roof wet. The overhanging branches also block the sun from keeping the cedar dry. Damp cedar promotes moss, algae and fungi infestations. Additionally overhanging branches help make easy access for animals and insects to the roof.

No New Posts   Cedar Shake Roof and Siding Cleaning in Lake Forest and Lake Bluff

October 20, 2017

Most homeowners don’t realize it but cedar shake roofs need to be periodically cleaned. Believe it or not a well maintained cedar roof will last a minimum of 40 years. But again the key is to keep the cedar roof cleaned. It is similar to our teeth. If we don’t periodically have our teeth examined and cleaned, we get buildup on them. After a while, our teeth start to discolor and decay hence cavities. It’s the same principle with cedar shake roofs. Cedar has natural properties to protect it from rot. However if organisms are allowed to infest the cedar, those organisms start to break down the cedar causing it to rot and decay. Go here for the rest of the story.

We clean all deck surfaces: composite, vinyl, pressure treated, cedar and exotic woods. Each one has a different method for cleaning the surface without causing damage.Blue Ridge Exterior Cleaning has the equipment and knowledge to clean your deck without damage.

The first pictures are a cedar deck that a customer tried to clean. Having the right equipment and knowledge, we got it done without damage to the wood.

No New Posts   Water Tower Soft Wash Cleaning at Atlantic Cape Community College by Diamond Roof Cleaning

August 26, 2017

We were hired by the college to clean this water tank. They didn't want any pressure used because they didn't want the paint to fly off. We successfully cleaned this tower with out pressure and I think it turned out amazing. The Head of maintenance said this will lead to a lot of more work for us and we are now their preferred vendor for exterior cleaning.



No New Posts   Paver Patio Clean, Sand and Seal by PAsoftwash Roof & Exterior Cleaning Co

August 17, 2017

PAsoftwash was tasked to "Get Ugly Off" this Paver Patio.  After it was chemically treated, pressure washed to remove contaminated joint sand and ugly stains, we resanded and compacted the paver joints with PolySweep joint sand.

After allowing joints to harden and dry out, we applied Trinic Stamp Shield Sealer.

We thank Earthcraft Landscaping for the referral and look forward to keeping their beautiful work looking its best for many years to come.

Hardscape surface restoration and maintenance sealing is a specialized service. Not too many companies want to perform this service, and yet it is a vital step to preserving hardscape.

We love giving pride of ownership back to our customers.  This particular homeowner was getting ready to host a family reunion and was so pleased to have their outdoor area looking brand new for the upcoming event.

We even received note that the homeowner took the time to hand write thanking us for the work that was completed.  Give us a call at 724-201-9274 or visit us at pasoftwash.com to request an onsite estimate to discuss your project. We clean everything from the top of your roof down to the hardscape and everything in between.

No New Posts   Customer Reviews

July 20, 2017

We all work hard to get the occasional review from a happy customer. Most of us go out of our way, offering a good service at a fair price and at the end of the job find something small to clean as a way to say thank you. I have been cleaning up some emails and also checking into places I haven't been in a while. One was Angie's List. I had no idea we have done so many things for AL members this years so now I will post a few and mention... Yes! We are proud!


"We actually didn't hire this company but wanted to leave a review because he was so helpful. He was too far away and the services we need help with were too small - but he took the time to offer us another contact number - something not a lot of companies are willing to do. I was impressed with his professionalism and helpfulness. It isn't often that one finds someone willing to go above and beyond - so I'm guessing he will do this for your job."

"I just wanted you to know how pleased we were with our house when we got home yesterday.  You did a wonderful job!!  We never realize how dirty it is until you have been there."

"Brett, your men came as scheduled this morning.  You've chosen them well.  They were polite, helpful, and did a very good job on the roof and the house.  The house looks better than it has in years.  Wanted to let you know that we are satisfied customers and appreciate doing business with a company that does what it says."


Blue Ridge Exterior Cleaning is willing to go the extra mile, even if you don't hire us we will do our best to help you with your project.

As can be seen by the photos here in our post this massive roof measures well over 12,000 square foot. The owners of this estate called us to do a free no obligation roof cleaning demo  last year, which our competitors failed to do. The owners waited a year and a half to insure the roof would stay clean during that period. Our trained and dedicated staff of Pocono Non-Pressure Roof & Exterior Cleaning performed all the algae, moss and lichen removal using our state of the art commercial non-pressure roof cleaning equipment and trucks recently.

No New Posts   Roof Cleaning at Visulite Cinema using our reclaim equipment

June 23, 2017

The Visulite Cinema called us to help with their roof and drainage problems. First there was way too much debris on their 5 year old white membrane roof that was blocking the scupper. The elbow at the bottom of the downspout was gone so two things were happening, water was staying on the roof and what was coming off was getting into the theater since there was nothing to divert it from the building. We took 840 lbs of debris to the landfill, most of which was cinder blocks.

They now have a clean roof without any debris. We made sure there was no run off getting into the streams using our reclaim unit and pumping the cleaning agents and roof dirt into the toilet.

Reclaiming the run off.

No New Posts   Dryvit Commercial Building Cleaning in Waynesboro, VA 22980 - 540-949-6277

No New Posts   Grease Removal from a Restaurant roof

May 27, 2017

We were approached by a roofer to clean this TPO (membrane) roof at this local eatery. The hood cleaning company had obviously not been performing a proper and thorough cleaning for quite some time and the grease catch basin was not even attached to the fan system, allowing vented oils to spill on the roof. Leaks had formed inside, and the roofer was unable to even diagnose the issue unless the roof was either cleaned, or removed and replaced.  

Very few parties involved in the process had hopes that a cleaning could provide the results that were needed, due to the advanced and extreme conditions. However, Spray Wash Exterior Cleaning was able to clean this mess and restore the roof to a condition where it could be inspected and repaired. Our Service basically kept this restaurant for having to replace their roof!

When you have grease issues, membrane roof problems or need a commercial cleaning, call Spray Wash. We can handle the most difficult tasks!
