If you take a close look at homes in North Ridgeville, you may notice that they have dark black streaks on their roofs.
If you have ever wondered what causes these unsightly black streaks, you are not alone. At Perfect Power Wash of North Ridgeville, our expert team has identified these black marks as the result of the presence of Gloeocapsa Magma, a limestone eating algae that feeds on the materials that make up shingles. This algae, in addition to other environmental factors such as mold and mildew, can give your roof a dingy look and can shorten the life span of your roofing materials, setting you up for an expensive repair.
The experts at Perfect Power Wash of North Ridgeville can remove the black streaks from your roof with our comprehensive process. We focus on not only getting your roof clean, but preventing algae outbreaks on your roof in the future. We use a comprehensive cleaning process that takes advantage of a low pressure soft wash roof cleaning and includes the use of algaecide to kill and neutralize the algae to prevent regrowth.
