Roof Cleaning can increase your curb appeal on your home!
Black streaks & green moss on your roof look awful!
The black stains are actually an Algae growth called Gloeocapsa Magma.
It eats the limestone filler in your roof shingles, absorbs moisture, prevents the shingles from drying, and drastically shortens the lifespan of your roof!
Roof Cleaning Goshen, IN
We provide this page to not only show you how we at Miller Soft Wash can improve the looks and beauty of your property, but to also inform you of the correct, and not so correct way to clean your property’s roof.
Of course, we at Miller Soft Wash always recommend letting a professional perform this work, but we want to give you the information for you to make the decision on who to hire.
Many different roof cleaning companies clean roofs many different ways. Miller Soft Wash wants you to understand the correct way your roof should be cleaned to not only improve the life of your roof, but also to keep it beautiful for years without having annual cleanings.
We at Miller Soft Wash have spent years of training to become Goshen‘s #1 roof cleaning company, and we want to pass this information on to our clients.
The Roof Cleaning Industry As We Know It
Many people do not even realize you can clean a roof.
Most people have the thought that a roof has to be replaced once it becomes covered in algae, mold, and moss.
After many years of the non-professionals cleaning roofs the improper ways that only damage the roofs, we at Miller Soft Wash have mastered the proper techniques to get it clean, keep it clean, and expand the life of your roof.
With these new techniques, the roof cleaning industry is heading into a new era, and is becoming more popular day by day.
The sad fact is that even most of the so called professional roof cleaning companies in Goshen, Indiana only know as much as a typical property owner.
This is the reason a property owner has to be very particular in whom they hire to clean their property’s roof. In IN, anyone can call themselves a “roof-cleaner”.
There is no mandate to have a license to clean a roof. This allows for anyone with a pressure washer to state that they can clean roofs.
We at Miller Soft Wash have put a lot of time in training our roof cleaning technicians, and always have a roof cleaning professional on site when a cleaning is in process. We want you to feel no fear at all knowing that Miller Soft Wash is in charge of your cleaning needs.
Why you should do a roof cleaning and why they get dirty!
The why part of the above question is pretty simple.
Most people want their property’s roof cleaned for one simple reason.
Everyone wants a beautiful property.
A property that will impress the family and friends when they arrive at your hard earned dwelling.
But there are more reasons than just to beautify your property to have your roof cleaned.
Having a clean roof also increases the efficiency of your property.
Lowering your air conditioning bill is always a high priority in the Goshen area. Having your roof shingles full of mold, mildew, and algae will absorb heat during the sunny days. Shingles are designed to reflect heat from the sun, not absorb it.
Why do roofs get so dirty?
Let’s face it; the summer months in Michiana are a hot nasty cesspool of fungus growing cities.
The heat, humidity, and wet condition of Goshen and other surrounding cities allow for the perfect conditions for mold, mildew, lichen, algae, and other fungi to grow on roofs, concrete, and just about everything outdoors if not protected and treated.
Most residential roofs are shingle roofs. Shingles these days contain limestone fillers to help add weight.
These limestone fillers are food for algae, mold, and moss. When the algae, mold, and moss feed on these limestone fillers, it decreases the lifespan of your shingles.
With this information, you can see how keeping your roof clean increases the life of your roof. And of course you wouldn’t want this mold, mildew, and moss growing on the inside of your house, so why let it build up and grow on the outside?
Miller Soft Wash Roof Cleaning Methods
Miller Soft Wash takes pride in that our methods and operations of cleaning roofs are supported by ARMA (Asphalt Roofing Manufactures Association), and shingle manufactures like Owens Corning, GAF, and many others.
The “Green” chemicals we use are plant and pet friendly and remove the growing fungus from the roots to insure that future fungus growth does not occur for years to come.
How Long Will A Roof Cleaning Last?
We at Miller Soft Wash have a three year warranty included in our roof cleaning services for any black algae stains. If the black algae stains do come back within three years we will come out and treat it again for free! Most roofs will need another cleaning to stay on top of the fungus growth in about 5 years after the initial cleaning.
We at Miller Soft Wash appreciate you visiting our website, and if you feel that we missed anything, please feel free to e-mail us. We are always doing everything in our power to keep on top of our client’s needs.

Stephanie Brown Positive: Professionalism, Punctuality, Quality, Responsiveness, ValueWe were completely impressed and pleased with Miller Soft Wash. Our home has the original wood siding from 1979, and we knew a high pressure wash might destroy the siding altogether, so we hired Miller Soft Wash to clean our exterior with care. He showed up early, was communicative of what we needed to do to prepare for the work, and he was in and out in under an hour. Hour home looks amazing, better than it has in the decade we’ve lived here! And the siding is completely intact! For the results, we consider the reasonable pricing a complete bargain!

Even a couple of areas we thought were hopeless – our gutters were awful – look great.Response from the owner5 months agoThank you very much for sharing. Was great washing your house in Middlebury IN and yes those gutters cleaned up very good!
Angel Konkey Positive: Quality, Responsiveness, ValueKenneth soft washed our house, roof, and deck. All I can say is, WOW! What a difference it makes on the cleanliness and curb appeal of our home. We had a lot of algae and organic growth on our roof and the front of the house, that left unsightly black streaks on the entire roof, due to it being north facing.
The entire roof looks incredible after the soft washing, and the streaks are now gone. We also had rust on the siding on one side, due to hard water. And, we had the remnants of a very large hornets nest that he managed to remove from the siding as well. Kenneth also cleaned our deck, which would have taken us half a day to power wash, so it was worth every penny for the soft wash.
Miller Soft Wash charged a FAIR price, worked DILIGENTLY and EFFICIENTLY, and had great communication, keeping us apprised of his schedule and arrival time. We highly recommend the services of Miller Soft Wash, and will definitely use him in the future.Response from the owner8 months agoWow! Thank you very much for this well worded and amazingly detailed review! I appreciate this very much!
Lyle Lehman Kenneth did a great job on our house and deck wash, he was very thorough and attentive to details it got cleaner then we expected!With his outstanding
estimating/production software is second to none!!
Miller Soft Wash has done a lot of work in Goshen, IN with the biggest project in Goshen being the Old Bag Factory which is currently a shopping mall but used to be a actual factory.
It’s an historic place, a factory built in 1896. It’s kind of like a cross between a vintage shopping center and an artists’ colony. It has a ton of history behind it AND it is an official site of the Northern Indiana Quilt Gardens along the Heritage Trail. This Goshen plant used to be one of the largest and most important factories owned by the Chicago Detroit Bag Company.
