Professional Roof Cleaning
Save your roof and your money! 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 often mistaken for dirt or soot is really a species of algae called Gloeocapsa Magma. This algae is transported through the air and collects on the exterior surfaces of your house, including your roof, where it feeds and grows.
Besides causing unappealing 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 years, people have relied on pressure or power washing to clean their roof, but they aren't resolving the root of the problem.
Pressure washing gets rid of just the surface layer of mold, mildew, algae and bacteria that can be located on your roof. The discoloration may disappear for now, but without removing the algae completely, the discolorations often return due to regrowth within six months.
The SoftWash System we utilize totally cleans your roof and eradicates stain-causing microbes by killing 100% of these pests. Soft washing your roof lasts 4 to 6 times longer than conventional power washing. There's no algae regrowth – only new growth.
