When removing ordinary leaves and dirt it is usually not necessary to pressure wash your shingle roof because it could damage your shingle’s coating of protective grit. To just remove the ordinary leaves and dirt you would use a light rinse with your garden hose. You will need to use pressure roof cleaning if you have a roof that has grown mold, moss, or algae.

If you do not pressure wash them off then the other choices would be to use herbicidal chemicals or scraping them off which can be destructive to the shingles.
