Professional Roof Cleaning
Save your roof and your wallet! Your roof could have years of life left in it; all it needs to be safely restored to its original beauty is soft washing.
What Causes Those Black Streaks?
The black or brown staining seen on numerous roofs that is often mistaken for dirt or soot is really a species of algae called Gloeocapsa Magma. This algae is transferred through the air and collects on the exterior surface areas of your home, including your roof, where it feeds and grows.
Besides creating unappealing black streaks, these algae also consume the limestone filler in your shingles, causing harmful damage and wear and tear to your roof.
Your roof isn't simply dirty -- it's infected!
Why You Need to Soft Wash Your Roof
For many years, pressure or power washing has been the go-to for homeowners aiming to clean their roofs, however, they frequently discover that their black streaks return. This is because they're not fixing the root of the problem.
Power washing gets rid of only the surface layer of mold, mildew, algae and bacteria that can be located on your roof. The discoloration may vanish for now, but without removing the algae, the stains typically return due to regrowth within six months.
The SoftWash System we use totally cleans your roof and removes stain-causing microorganisms by killing 100% of these pests. This soft washing service lasts 4 to 6 times longer than standard power washing. There's no algae regrowth – only new growth.
