Moss and algae:
tend to grow and multiply in regions with more than average rainfall and humidity. For example it only needs a light breeze to spread the spores from lichens. Soon these will grow and multiply into moss or algae and cluster into clumps.
Nature has certain rules:
in the northern hemisphere moss tends to grow profusely on the north side of the roof or in those parts of the roof covered by overhanging branches. Shade blocking out the sun makes it ideal for moss to multiply. The dew falling in the morning or occasional showers anchor on to the moss and this leads to less of evaporation. This in turn triggers of the game of multiplication until the entire roof is slowly taken over and conquered. It is a slow but sure deadly process.

With Soft Wash Low Pressure, we can safely and effectively clean your roof.
Softwashing is recommended by the Asphalt Roofing Manufactures Association (ARMA) to remove moss, lichen, black streaks or stains on a roof and will not void warranties. A stained roof is much more than just an eyesore. Those black stains on your roof are actually a fungal infestation caused by a type of algae (Gloeocapsa magma) that feeds on the limestone filler used to add weight to asphalt shingles.
The root system of these algae loosens the granules that protect and give color to your shingles, and significantly reduce the lifespan of your roof. Give us a call today to see how we can transform your dirty streaked roof to look new instantly!
