Roof Cleaning

Is your roof covered with black streaks or stains? If so, then you may be surprised by what the staining you see actually is. It is a form of algae called "Gloeocapsa Magma," which feeds on crushed limestone used in common asphalt shingles. The good news is it can be removed using the right roof cleaners and cleaning technique.

Even though algae, mold, and other stain causing organisms can be safely removed from roof shingles, extreme caution must be taken to prevent damage to your roof and belongings. This is why it's so important to hire a professional to do the job instead of attempting it yourself.

The risk of damaging your roof or hurting yourself in the process are two of the most obvious reasons not to clean your roof yourself. Getting the professional appearance you want is also a main reason why hiring an experienced roof cleaning company, equipped with the best cleaners and knowledge to use them properly, is a better choice than attempting the chore as a DIY project.
