What's Eating Your Roof? Not Just Dirt. It's Time for a Roof Cleaning!
Do you see some ugly black streaks on your roof? A roof cleaning is the solution. Not only are these unsightly, but over time they can damage your shingles and decrease the life of your roof!
Where do these black roof stains come from? It is caused by a cyanobacteria called Gloeocapsa Magma. This bacteria is an algae-like plant that feeds on the limestone filler used in nearly all asphalt shingles made in the past 40 years. It is continuing to spread across Atlanta, the Southeast and other parts of the country where it is warm and humid.
This problem is amplified on the north side and shaded areas of your roof. Lack of sunlight means more moisture, creating the perfect environment for maximum growth. Once this colony of cyanobacteria is established, it creates a petri-dish effect on your roof. Left unattended, these black streaks continue growing. Over time, this can foster other living organisms, such as mold, moss, lichen, & worse!
Eventually this can cause premature aging and rotting of your roof shingles. Some insurance companies are even canceling Homeowner Insurance policies because of this problem.

What NOT To Do
The worst thing you can do is to use high pressure to clean your roof. Pressure washers will blow off shingles granules and erode the protective layers, thus accelerating the roof decomposition problem. While it may look cleaner, in fact, you are further reducing the life of the roof and potentially voiding your shingle manufacturer warranty! The only proper way to clean your roof is with our no-pressure Soft-wash System.
