Roof cleaning is using soft washing techniques to gently remove algae, mold, mildew and moss from your roofs delicate shingles. Surely you’ve seen it before – the black streaks that form on roofs. They’re usually found in shady or the north-facing side of the roof. For many homeowners, this has typically been one of the first signs that it’s time to consider replacing their roof. However, that might not be the case. It might just be time to schedule a roof cleaning!
You can thank Gloeocapsa magma for creating those unsightly black streaks. Gloeocapsa magma is a strain of bacteria formed by algae spores and is found exclusively to grow on roofs. And this bacteria means business. The spores feed off the limestone granules embedded in roof shingles, which causes expedited destruction of the shingle’s integrity. As the roof shingles deteriorate, energy costs for the home can begin to increase, and ultimately, roof replacement will need to be done sooner than expected, which can cost anywhere between $8,000-$16,500!
This algae has been around for a long time. But only in recent years has soft washing proven to be an excellent treatment and deterrent for this bacteria growth. Soft washing service for roofs includes the use of an eco-friendly detergent that is formulated to kill this algae and prevent future growth. Soft washing utilizes a significantly lower water pressure than traditional pressure washing, which prevents further damage to the roof. And, it lasts 4-6 times longer than traditional methods.
An annual roof cleaning service can help maximize the lifespan of your shingles – up to 25 years! And as part of a proper residential exterior maintenance plan, it will really boost the overall curb appeal of your home. It’s a great investment in your home, both financially and aesthetically.
