What Causes Those Black Streaks?
The black or brown staining seen on a lot of roofs that is often mistaken for dirt or soot is really a type of algae called Gloeocapsa Magma. This type of algae is transferred through the air and has the tendency to land, gather and grow on roofs.
In addition to creating unsightly black streaks, these algae also feed on the limestone filler in shingles. This can cause major damage and deterioration to your roof.
Your roof isn't just dirty -- it's contaminated!
Why You Need to Soft Wash Your Roof
For years, people have turned to pressure or power washing to clean their roof, however they aren't solving the root of the issue.
Power washing not only can damage your roof, it eliminates only the surface layer of mold, mildew, algae and bacteria that can be located on your roof. The discoloration might vanish for the time being, but without eliminating the algae, the stains frequently return due to regrowth within six months.
The SoftWash System we use completely cleans your roof and eliminates stain-causing microbes by killing 100% of these pests. Soft washing your roof lasts 4 to 6 times longer than standard power washing. There's no algae regrowth – only new growth.
