Save your roof and your wallet! 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 Are Those Black Streaks?
The black or brown staining seen on many roofs that is typically mistaken for dirt or soot is really a type of algae called Gloeocapsa Magma. This type of algae is transported through the air and tends to land, collect and grow on roofs.
Besides causing unattractive black streaks, these algae also feed on the limestone filler in your shingles, causing harmful damage and deterioration to your roof.
Your roof isn't just dirty -- it's contaminated!
Why You Should Soft Wash Your Roof
For many years, pressure or power washing has been the go-to for people seeking to clean their roofs, however, they often find 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 eliminated from your roof with pressure washing. The discoloration might vanish for now, but without removing the algae, the stains often return due to regrowth within six months.
The SoftWash System we use totally cleans your roof and eliminates stain-causing bacteria by killing 100% of these pests. This soft washing service lasts 4 to 6 times longer than traditional power washing. There's no algae regrowth – only new growth.
