What causes those ugly roof stains?

The answer may surprise you… It is actually a type of algae growth called Gloecapsa Magma. This algae is spread from home to home via airborne spores. When the spores land on shingles that are moist, they begin to feed on the organic material (mainly limestone) in the shingles. It is common for algae infestations to begin on the northern and/or western slopes of the roof, or in heavily shaded areas. These are the areas of the roof that are the most seriously affected by the algae. If left untreated, algae can cover the entire roof of a home.

How can the ugly stains be removed?

Our Roof Shampoo® cleaning process includes the use of specially calibrated, state-of-the-art roof cleaning equipment, and the uniquely engineered, environmentally safe Roof Shampoo® product, along with our specific roof cleaning techniques.

roof-cleaning-processOur roof cleaning technician sprays the Roof Shampoo® product on the affected shingles to remove the algae and its resulting stains from your roof. The product causes the algae roots to release. The technician then uses the roof cleaning equipment which is specially calibrated at a low, gentle pressure to wash away all the algae that has been loosened by the product. Damaging high pressure is NEVER used. The result is a clean and beautiful roof free of algae stains, without any harm to vegetation or surfaces around the home.
