Rescue your roof and save money! Your roof could have years of life left in it; all it needs to be safely restored to its original beauty is soft washing.
What Causes Those Black Streaks?
The black or brown discoloration seen on a lot of roofs that is frequently mistaken for dirt or soot is in fact a type of algae called Gloeocapsa Magma. This kind of algae is transferred through the air and tends to land, gather and grow on roofs.
Besides creating uninviting 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 simply stained -- it's contaminated!
Why You Need to Soft Wash Your Roof
For years, pressure or power washing has been the go-to for homeowners seeking to clean their roofs, however, they frequently find that their black streaks return. This is due to the fact that they're not resolving the root of the problem.
Power washing gets rid of only the surface layer of mold, mildew, algae and bacteria that can be found on your roof. The discoloration might disappear for now, but without eliminating the algae completely, the discolorations typically return due to regrowth within six months.
The SoftWash System we utilize totally cleans your roof and removes stain-causing microbes by killing 100% of these pests. Soft washing your roof lasts 4 to 6 times longer than traditional pressure washing. There's no algae regrowth – only new growth.
