Roof Pressure Washing with Judge Mobile Wash
Your roof has to endure a lot of elements. It must keep out rain, sun, heat, cold, and the occasional snow. It has to keep out any insect or animal that might try to invade your attic. It is also consistently bombarded with dirt and debris. Here in Philadelphia, West Chester, and throughout the PA, NJ, and DE region, much of the year also brings warm weather and humid air – the perfect environment for mold, mildew, fungi, and bacteria.
Over time, this causes roofs to be discolored, unattractive, and dramatically reduce the lifespan of the shingles. Professional pressure washing can safely and effectively clean away all that dirt and debris. Without using harmful chemicals or scrubbing (both of which can damage a roof), power washing can get deep into crevices and between shingles to remove the buildup and keep the roof looking its best.
Judge Mobile Wash offers roof pressure washing in the Greater Philadelphia area. Our mobile team comes to your residential or commercial property with the latest tools and technology for high end power washing, giving us the ability to clean roofs of almost any material no matter the degree of buildup.
There is no project too large or too small, and our affordable rates make pressure washing the most cost effective way to clean and restore your roof – or any part of your home. Call us at (610) 692-9274 to get a quote and learn more about our available pressure washing solutions.
About Our Advanced Pressure Washing
No two roofs are alike. Various types of shingles, different buildup, and varying ages are just a few of the characteristics that differentiate your roof from others on your block. Because every roof is different, we never approach pressure washing with one type of treatment.
Instead, we use equipment that gives us options. This is the industry’s most advanced machinery that has adjustable settings so that we can safely wash the more delicate roofing materials, roofs that have sustained some wear and damage, and those with deeply embedded dirt. Our options include:
- High Pressure Washing – Our machinery can reach a much higher pressure than most commercial pressure washers, penetrating furthering into pores and grooves and attacking dirt. We use high pressure washing on durable roofing services that are impervious to pressure damage.
- Low Pressure Washing – Essential for some of the more delicate roofing materials, our soft washing can extract dirt without damaging or loosening roof tiles. It is suitable for essentially any type of roof and often enough to clear away the vast majority of dirt and debris.
- Hot Water Washing – We have the ability to rapidly heat water as we are applying it. The hot water is helpful breaking up stains and loosening hardened buildup in ways that cold water alone often struggles with.
We also use eco-friendly detergents that are powerful and nontoxic, capable of cutting through oils and greasy materials. They work alongside the pressurized water to loosen dirt, meaning we can use a lower pressure and accomplish the same level of clean.
We use cleaners that are specifically designed for this power washing process so they will not dry out asphalt tiles or otherwise harm the integrity of your roof. With skill and attention to detail, our pressure washing specialists are able to remove every bit of soap, as well as grime, so that there is no risk of lingering roof damage.
Our detergents, as well as all of our practices, are eco-friendly. They are safe for use around family members, customers, and others who may visit your property. They are also as harmless as possible for the local environment. We continuously review and conform to all environmental requirements that impact the Philadelphia and West Chester region, and always make sure that the work we do is as safe as possible.
Types of Buildup We Remove from Roofs
The roof on a home or commercial property is designed to stop unwanted debris from entering the interior. This means that a roof is often exposed to harsh elements from air, weather, trees, animals, and more. Over time, all of those elements will start to build upon the roof itself.
In the area around Philadelphia, buildup types that are most common on roofs are:
- Mildew and Mold
- Leaves and Debris
- Animal Droppings
Once organic debris like mold or algae starts growing on your roof, it will not stop so long as there is adequate humidity and warmth. It will continue to spread across your roof, growing underneath shingles to the underlay and decking. Left long enough, this growth can cause tiles to soften or become dislodged.
Pressure washing addresses any buildup of mold or mildew, along with the types of debris that could cause it to grow, like leaves and twigs.
Other forms of dirt like soot and dust may not be as immediately destructive as mold, but will still harm the appearance of the roof. These are what make surfaces look dingy and older than they are, staining your roof quickly even if it is newer. They can be just as difficult to remove and may contain bacteria and other elements that could have a corrosive effect like mold.
It is important to remember that not all roof buildup will be easily visible from the ground. Unlike other areas of your property, many places on your roof are out of sight. That is why it is often important to consider pressure washing even if your roof looks attractive from the ground, as regular cleaning will help wash away damaging debris, whether it is seen or unseen.

Why Pressure Wash Your Roof
Your roof is an investment. Like any investment around your home, you want to be sure that it will last as long as possible and work well for the entirety of its lifespan. For roofs, this requires regular cleaning. How often depends on factors like the material and how quickly mold grows, but many roofs should be cleaned at least every few years.
This scheduled cleaning has the benefits of:
- Improving Property Appearance and Value – A discolored roof will look much older than it is. Even if the rest of your home is maintained, it is the roof that will often make or break the final appearance. Keeping it clean improves your curb appeal and reinforces the value of your home.
- Extending the Lifetime of Your Roof – Algae, mold, and mildew eat away at roofing tiles, making them less effective over time. This could result in your roof needing repairs or replacement before expected.
- Revealing Needed Repairs – The best maintained roofs can still need repairs from time to time after weather, wear, or animal damage. If the damaged area is covered by debris, you might not notice it until it gets worse. With regular cleaning and inspections, you can locate roof damage early and repair it before it becomes worse.
- Saving on Energy Costs – Mold or algae growing on your roof will often absorb heat while also blocking reflective granules in asphalt shingles from repelling sunlight. This results in a rising temperature in your home and during warm summers, you air conditioner will have to work harder, costing you more, to keep you cool and comfortable.
Pressure washing is one of the only ways to sufficiently remove dirt and buildup from a roof. Overlapping shingles, corrugated tiles, and the ridges and pores that are essential for keeping water out of homes are also ideal for trapping dirt, and pressure washing remains one of the safest and fastest ways to eliminate it.
Other forms of cleaning, such as spraying your roof with a garden hose, bleach or other chemicals, or getting up on your roof yourself, are often ineffective, easily missing spots of buildup or mold which can then continue to grow back.
Alternative methods can also do more harm than good for your roof if a shingle is accidentally loosened or weakened. There is also the risk of standing on a slippery, slanted roof, especially if you don’t have the proper safety equipment in case of a fall.
Our professional pressure washing at Judge Mobile Wash keeps you safely on the ground while our highly trained team navigates your roof with every possible precaution in place. We use proven methods to release dirt from different roofing surfaces and since we are actively on your roof throughout the process, we can catch every spot and stain.
Roofing Surfaces We Pressure Wash
We begin each of our services with an inspection of your roof. This gives us a chance to find where buildup is and to plan our process. The type of roof, any existing damages that might cause certain areas to be more sensitive, and other obstacles will be factored into our pressure settings and cleaning methods.
The roofing material is most important for determining how we clean. Shingle roofs remain the most common roofing material for newer and older homes in the area, but they are not the only roof type. We are experienced with special considerations and the optimal cleaning process for:
- Asphalt Shingles
- Clay Roofing Tiles
- Concrete Tiles
- Slate Tiles
- Corrugated Metal
- Composite Shingles
- Wood Shingles
Method is also important for working with roofs. All of our roof cleaning specialists clean in a way that keeps water from getting underneath shingles and to the underlay. We are also able to customize our cleaning process – and our safety practices – to the shape of your roof. From flat roofs to steeply sloped gables, we work carefully to get to every part and remove any trapped dirt.
If your roof has solar panels installed, we can work around the panels so that there is no danger to the panels themselves or the electrical components. We can also adjust our cleaning strategy around other objects installed in your roof such as vents, HVAC units, dormers, and more with options for either cleaning them separately or cordoning them off entirely.
Residential and Commercial Roof Pressure Washing
With so many of the towns and cities around Philadelphia offering a great place to live, homeowners make up the majority of our roof cleaning clients. We know how important your roof is to protect your home and as its own investment, and we want to help yours last as long as possible.
We also frequently work with businesses and commercial property owners in the area where a clean roof is a noticeable part of a professional and welcoming property, or when there some type of spill, buildup, or debris.
The range of options possible with our technology and equipment mean we can customize a pressure washing treatment for:
- Office Complex
- Retail Stores
- Warehouses and Factories
- Schools, and More
We have rapid service with flexible scheduling and can be at your home, business, office, or other property quickly. Each of our one time services will restore your roof in appearance and durability.
Ongoing pressure washing is a good solution for both residential and commercial properties. It maintains curb appeal year round and can add years onto your roof. We can set up a pressure washing schedule based on the needs of your roof, ensuring that we are washing on the correct timeline for your specific roofing material without causing undue stress.
Annual and semi-annual maintenance are popular options for cleaning roofing, but we also have quarterly and bi-monthly solutions for those who need a continuous clean.
Why Choose Judge Mobile Wash?
Pressure washing your roof is not a task you want to entrust to just anyone. Your roof is a costly investment, and repairs are necessary if there is any damage. The pressure needs to be set to a PSI that is specific to your roof’s type and age, a low pressure that retail equipment often cannot provide.
Many roofs can be a challenge to clean as well if they are slanted. Special care and equipment is needed to reach dirt caught in valleys, beneath flashing, and around vents without getting water trapped beneath
An effective roof pressure washing requires state of the art equipment and experienced service. At Judge Mobile Wash, we have both.

Roof Pressure Washing FAQ's
One of the reasons that Judge Mobile Wash has developed such a strong reputation in the area is that we have invested in the latest in professional pressure washing equipment. While many contractors use tools from Home Depot or other retail stores, we have more advanced technology that provides high pressure washing, soft washing, hot water washing, and is capable of sanitation and disinfecting.
That means that we can treat essentially any hard surface, including those traditionally more difficult or more sensitive to pressure washing. The list includes (but is of course not limited to):
Of course, that's not all. We can also support Marble, Aluminum, Wood, Stone, Slate, GFRC, and much more. It's what allows us to treat indoors and outdoors, as well as essentially any hard surface
We're a mobile pressure washing service for a reason, and we have technicians spread out to provide better service coverage throughout the region. You'll want to call us to see if we're near you, but as long as you're within about 50 miles of our base in West Chester, we can often come to your property and provide the support you need.
We clean almost any hard surface (and even a few soft surfaces). It's why we are used in both commercial and residential applications. For businesses, we even clean vehicles, provide trauma cleanup support, wash down machinery, and so much more.
Our residential services are similarly broad, allowing us to power wash almost any part of your home that needs cleaning. Some examples include:
We've even washed down fire pits, sheds, larger outdoor barbecue sets, and countless other items. We also welcome your questions, so if you would like to learn any more about home pressure washing please call us at any time. Even though we are well known for our work with large commercial properties, we're also happy to assist homeowners with small cleaning projects as well.
In terms of large, solid items, there are very few that things we cannot clean. Because we can clean everything from dirt to mold to algae to gum (as well as grease, oil, weather stains, and even layered paint), the only items we may be hesitant to clean are those in the interior of a small property that cannot get wet, and anything that is sensitive to water damage.
Only a few local companies, including Judge Mobile Wash, are able to provide hot water pressure washing. It's one of our most exciting offerings, as we have an entire setup that is capable of heating water and using it to spray down your property.
Hot water is, simply, better. Though not every material can or should be sprayed with hot water, it is more powerful against issues like grime, automotive fluids, and sticky chemicals. The hot water helps to weaken the contaminants, breaking them down so that they can more easily wash away in a way that cold water simply cannot provide.
Hot water also has disinfecting ability, which makes it useful for places like hospitals or any place that could have coronavirus/COVID-19. During freezing cold winters, a hot water, high pressure wash can also be used to eliminate ice buildup that may be hurting your property.
Hot water washing is one of several advantages to the types of technology we use. Don’t forget to also ask us about our high pressure and soft water washing - the former of which provides a more powerful output than most retail devices, while the latter allows us to wash more sensitive items with similar efficacy.
Our business, including everyone that works for us, is licensed, bonded, and insured. We also follow every single law and industry standard to the letter. You are in the best possible hands when you choose to work with Judge Mobile Wash.
