Whether you own a cozy house built for two or an office built for hundreds, both buildings share something in common: The importance of their roofs. A Step Up offers the professional expertise to keep this vital part of your residential or commercial property functional, long-lasting, and beautiful.

The Issue (And Eyesore!)

Black streaks are a common sight on the roofing of buildings big and small. This prominent discoloration is usually due to the growth of mold and algal growth. If it isn’t treated attentively and effectively, it will eat away at your roofing material, which necessitates costly repairs or even replacement. Roofing is a big investment, and A Step Up is committed to ensuring that yours lasts for as long as possible.


Unfortunately, those black streaks on your roof are not just dirt and won’t wash away when it rains. It is the beginning stages of mold and algae growth and it will only get worse, not better. Left untreated the algae will grow and take over your roof and attach itself to your shingles. Having your roof cleaned is a lot more affordable than having it replaced down the road. Our roof cleaning service is guaranteed to remove those nasty black streaks and mold buildup safely and effectively!

Our Approach

Roofing is an investment -- and it requires a gentle touch. That’s why our team uses a soft wash service that gently removes mold, mildew, algae, dirt, and other buildups. we are committed to using the best technology and cleaning agents on the market. This noninvasive approach is safe for every material, be in asphalt, tiles, cedar shakes, or metal.


Soft Washing is a method of cleaning and restoring delicate substrates, such as all types of roofing materials, using Eco-friendly, nontoxic, nonhazardous cleaning agents. These cleaning agents can help remove dirt, algae and all other pollutants from your roof without damage.

Power Washing a roof is extremely risky. That is because a roofing substrate is not designed to withstand, high-pressure water cleaning. That is why the leading roofing manufacturers such as General Aniline & Film (GAF) along with all of the leading Power Washing organizations as the Power Washers of North America (PWNA) & United Associations of Mobile Contract Cleaners (UAMCC) all recommended the Soft Washing method, and warn against Power Washing roofing materials, particularly Asphalt Shingles.


Using the Soft Wash method, we can restore shingles back to their original condition. Power Washing can loosen to wash away the tiny limestone particles, found in your asphalt shingles.

These limestone particles work by reflecting the suns UV rays away from your roof in the hotter months and also helping to retain the heat in your home during the winter. Once these particles are lost, your heating and cooling bills will undoubtedly increase, and your roof will not last nearly as long as it should.

Our clients deserve the best. When you get regular roof cleaning from A Step Up, you aren’t just getting instant curb appeal… You’re getting a roof that will look more beautiful and last longer for years ahead.
