Tired of stains ruining your homes curb appeal? We will utilize a low pressure SOFT WASHING technique to ensure that no damage is done to your roof.
The SOFT WASH cleaning process utilizes a low concentration of detergents, mixed appropriately with surfactants for your roof. This type of mix, partnered with a low pressure application, is recommended by most shingle manufacturers as the preferred method of maintenance cleaning. In addition to added curb appeal, a clean roof will give you the benefit of lower heating and cooling costs, a healthier home overall, and a prolonged life of your roof. We clean all types of roofs including asphalt, tile and cedar shingles.
What’s growing on Your Roof?
These black streaks are called Gloeocapsa magma, or GM, more commonly called mold or fungus. This cyanobacteria is a bacteria that get their strength to survive through photosynthesis and the limestone filler found in the composition of shingles.
Another organism growing on your roof is moss, which is a plant, not a fungus or algae. Moss aides in shortening the life span of your roof because it retains moisture and in cold climates can freeze, causing damage to the shingle and granules.
