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.

Our Soft Wash Process

At Aqua-Nomics, we use a unique no-pressure Soft-wash process to clean your roof. We apply an effective, biodegradable chemical to safely kill all the mold, mildew, algae, and underlying bacteria causing those black streaks.

Benefits of Soft Washing

Complete mold & mildew elimination
Damage-free, mess-free
Longer lasting results
Exclusive 2 year warranty

Your roof shingles will never be harmed, and will look almost new when we’re done. This may extend the life of your roof, get the HOA off your back, and avoid any potential issues with your home insurance company -- all for a fraction of the cost of a new roof!

At Aqua-Nomics, we have the proper tools, knowledge, and experience to ensure your roof cleaning is done properly.

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.

House Soft Wash, Gutter Brighten

Responded quickly and in a professional and timely manner. Other companies I contacted would call back, but not leave a voice-mail. The house looks so much better! The gutters cleaned up nicely too! Very happy with the results.

Paul M.
House Soft Wash

The crew arrived when they said they would and did an excellent job. The house had not been pressure washed in several years and they went the extra mile to make sure that it was perfect. Very professional and without hesitation will have them back again. In fact they will be back to stain and seal the deck.
