The black streaking typically found on homes in our area where humidity-driven moisture settles on shingles can be caused by mildew, fungus or roof algae. 3M scientists have identified the most common form as Gloeocapsa Magma. Algae spores are carried by the wind, which is why so many houses in the same neighborhood can end up with this problem. Over the past 20 years or so, this particular algae strain has become hardier, the staining is showing up earlier, is more severe and settles on a greater number of roofs.
The Asphalt Roofing Manufacturers Association has written a technical bulletin addressing proper cleaning procedures for asphalt shingle roofs with this growth, and it is those procedures that we follow exclusively. We only apply lower pressure to the roof. Pressure washers are used to deliver soap and water where it is needed, and the water stream is directed so that it lands on the roof on its downward arc.SCHEDULE YOUR WASH NOW
The soap mixture is allowed to dwell for an appropriate period of time to ensure the best possible early results. There is always some granule loss due to weathering and other natural occurrences, but by allowing the soap to do the work, those protection-providing granules on the shingles are able to remain right where they belong – on your roof.
