What Are Those Black Streaks on My Roof?
The black or brown staining seen on many roofs that is frequently mistaken for dirt or soot is really a species of algae called Gloeocapsa Magma. This algae is transferred through the air and lands on the exterior surface areas of your house, including your roof, where it feeds and grows.
In addition to causing unsightly black streaks, these algae also feed on the limestone filler in shingles. This can cause major damage and wear and tear to your roof.
Your roof isn't just dirty -- it's contaminated!
Reasons to Soft Wash Your Roof
For many years, pressure or power washing has been the go-to for homeowners planning to clean their roofs, but they often discover that their black streaks return. This is because they're not solving the root of the problem.
Power washing removes only the surface layer of mold, mildew, algae and bacteria that can be found on your roof. The discoloration may disappear for the time being, but without getting rid of the algae, the discolorations typically return due to regrowth within six months.
The SoftWash System we use totally cleans your roof and eliminates stain-causing microorganisms by killing 100% of these pests. This soft washing service lasts 4 to 6 times longer than conventional power washing. There's no algae regrowth – only new growth.
