Have you ever wondered what can cause the streaks on your roof?
These black streaks are the result of an aggressive algae called Gloeocapsa magma. This algae loves to live on roofs as it feeds on the components of your roof shingles, specifically limestone. As the algae eats the limestone in your shingles and roofing materials, it leaves black streaks that can make your roof look dingy. This algae can actually shorten the lifespan of your roofing materials because moss and algae prevent your roof from drying properly, which can lead to soft spots, poor drainage and a rotted underlayment.
Instead of facing expensive roof repairs, try an easy solution! The expert power washing professionals at Lorain’s Perfect Power Wash can professionally clean and restore your roof. During our comprehensive process, we can remove black streaks and organisms through our low pressure soft wash roof cleaning process. As part of the process, we use two applications of algaecide to kill and neutralize the algae as well as preventative agents. This approach ensures that there will be no new growth for an extended period of time.
