Professional Roof Cleaning
Save your roof and your money! Your roof may still 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 discoloration seen on numerous roofs that is typically mistaken for dirt or soot is actually a type of algae called Gloeocapsa Magma. This kind of algae is transported through the air and tends to land, collect and grow on roofing structures.
In addition to creating unsightly black streaks, these algae also consume the limestone filler in shingles. This can cause major damage and wear and tear to your roof.
Your roof isn't just stained -- it's infected!
Reasons to Soft Wash Your Roof
For years, pressure or power washing has been the go-to for homeowners looking to clean their roofs, however, they often discover that their black streaks return. This is due to the fact that they're not solving the root of the problem.
Only the surface layer of mold, mildew, algae and bacteria can be removed from your roof with pressure washing. The stains might disappear for the time being, but without removing the algae completely, the stains typically return due to regrowth within six months.
The SoftWash System we use completely cleans your roof and eradicates stain-causing microbes by killing 100% of these pests. Soft washing your roof lasts 4 to 6 times longer than conventional pressure washing. There's no algae regrowth – only new growth.
