Soft Wash Roof Cleaning
Do you know those ugly black streaks and stains on your roof can be safely cleaned and treated? Did you realize those ugly streaks are actually fungus and bacteria eating away at your roof? Our soft wash eco-friendly roof cleaning system can safely clean your roof and treat the fungus feeding on your shingles.
The black stains on your roof are a form of Gloecapsa Magma and are transported from roof to roof by airborne spores. Over time the bacteria develops a filament root system and begins to eat into the shingles, thus slowly decomposing your roof.
In order to treat these types of bacteria and algae, they must be cleaned with the appropriate amount of eco-friendly biodegradable solutions to ensure a 100% kill ratio. Pressure washing will not only damage your roof, but will result in the bacteria and/or algae growing right back.
Roofs, whether shingle, tile, slate, shake, membrane or metal will lose as much as 50% of their service life from infestation of these organisms. This loss of service life can cost property owners thousands of dollars in premature replacement and service costs.
In addition to the damage a dirty roof will cause, dark staining on your roof will absorb more heat and raise under roof attic temperatures, costing property owners additional sums of money in terms of electricity costs. Cleaning your roof can save as much 40% off of your monthly electric bill. Based on this fact most roof cleanings will pay for themselves within one year!
If a customer maintains their roof regularly, they will extend the service life of their roof significantly.
In order to clean your roof safely and effectively we use a soft wash cleaning system which exerts no pressure on your roof. More specifically, we use small 12 volts pumps that deliver an eco-friendly biodegradable treatment onto your roof and let the solution do the work. There is no brushing, scraping or power washing. The pressure is comparable to what the average garden hose will deliver. Our detergent has been approved by all major shingle manufacturers GAF
