Rescue your roof and save money! With soft washing you can safely restore your roof back to its original beauty and save on costly replacement.
What Causes Those Black Streaks?
The black or brown discoloration seen on numerous roofs that is typically mistaken for dirt or soot is in fact a type of algae called Gloeocapsa Magma. This algae is transported through the air and collects on the exterior surface areas of your house, including your roof, where it feeds and grows.
In addition to causing unsightly black streaks, these algae also consume the limestone filler in shingles. This can cause major damage and wear and tear to your roof.
Your roof isn't simply filthy -- it's infected!
Why You Need to Soft Wash Your Roof
For years, pressure or power washing has been the go-to for homeowners planning to clean their roofs, but they often discover that their black streaks return. This is due to the fact that they're not fixing the root of the problem.
Only the surface layer of mold, mildew, algae and bacteria can be removed from your roof with power washing. The discoloration might vanish for now, but without eliminating the algae completely, the discolorations often return due to regrowth within six months.
The SoftWash System we utilize totally cleans your roof and eradicates stain-causing microorganisms by killing 100% of these pests. Soft washing your roof lasts 4 to 6 times longer than standard power washing. There's no algae regrowth – only new growth.
