- About Us
Don’t confuse our roof cleaning service with power washing – high pressure could harm your roof. Instead, we use a soft washing method, with low pressure and specially formulated cleaning agents approved by the Asphalt Roofing Manufacturers Association (ARMA), to safely eliminate algae, mildew, streaks, and dirt without damaging your shingles.
Note: After cleaning, you may see temporarily white spots on your roof where the stains, streaks, and algae were treated. This is a sign that the problem areas have been successfully killed. Over time, the white spots will disappear naturally through wind, rain, and sunlight, leaving you with a freshly cleaned roof.
Roof discoloration caused by the species of algae known as Gloeocapsa Magma (Black Algae or Roof Algae) can reduce the life of your shingles. As the fungus breaks down the asphalt, it loosens the ceramic granules that protect the surface, causing the roof to deteriorate and reducing its heat-reflecting ability. Cleaning your roof with the ARMA-recommended process can help extend the life of your roof and save on home cooling expenses.
