The Experts at Buffalo Window Cleaning also Offer Professional Roof Washing Services
Is there dark discoloration or black streaks on your shingles? Many people are convinced that the stains indicate that their shingles are no longer good and that their roof needs to be replaced. The dark streaks and stains are actually caused by ‘gloeocapsa magma’ a type of bacteria which eats the limestone deposits found in your shingles.
The black spots form over the algae to shield it from the sun’s UV rays. If you closely look at an affected roof, you’ll notice that the spots are worse when in shaded areas or areas that don’t receive as much light.
The algae flourish in humid and shady environments and can eventually damage your roof. Neighbors’ roofs can also become affected as the algae spreads. Unless killed using a strong mildew-killing solution, the algae will persist.
Our Roof Cleaning Process is Safe and Effective
An algae stained roof can safely be cleaned, but pressure should never be used on asphalt shingles. Low pressure may even loosen and remove shingle grit, reducing your roof’s life.
Our window cleaning company uses a powerful detergent solution to eliminate the algae and mold and prevent it from quickly growing back. Having your roof cleaned costs significantly less than replacing your roof, so let us help!
