Get Rid of Dirty Black Streaks on Your Roof

Have you looked at the roof on homes in your Columbus neighborhood lately?  If you have, then you have seen the black streaks that are prevalent in the area.  Those black streaks are Gloecapsa Magma, a form of algae that grows in moist areas and feeds on limestone. Today’s roof shingles are largely made with limestone, which means that this form of algae may be doing more than just leaving black streaks on your roof.  In fact, it may be eating away your roofing investment.  Is there anything that can be done to prevent damage?

  • Use a professional roof cleaning service.  Perfect Power Wash specializes in the gentle, yet thorough cleaning that your roof needs.  By getting your roof pressure washed, you can eliminate the safety issues you may encounter if you try to clean it yourself.
  • Prevent the algae from coming back.  By applying an algae-inhibiting solution, you can prevent a large amount of the regrowth when your roof is cleaned.  This will help to delay the return of the black streaks.

When you see your roof without any more black streaks, you will be very grateful for Perfect Power Wash! Call today to schedule an appointment with our Columbus-based team.
