Signs That You Need Roof Cleaning In Atlanta
Do you have any unsightly black streaks on your roof? The remedy is roof cleaning. Not only are they ugly, but they may also harm your shingles and shorten the life of your roof!
What causes these black roof stains? Gloeocapsa Magma, a cyanobacterium, causes it. This bacteria is an algae-like plant that eats the limestone filler used in practically all asphalt shingles manufactured in the last 40 years. For years it has spread throughout Atlanta, the Southeast, and other sections of the country where it is hot and humid.
This issue is exacerbated on the north side and in shaded portions of your roof. Because there is less sunshine, there is more moisture, which creates the ideal atmosphere for optimal development. Once formed, this cyanobacteria colony provides a petri-dish look on your roof. If left unchecked, these black streaks will spread. This can eventually lead to the growth of other living creatures, such as mold, moss, and lichen, eventually causing premature aging and rotting of your roof shingles. If you want to avoid further damage to your roof, give Aqua-Nomics a call.
