What Are Those Black Streaks on My Roof?

The black or brown discoloration seen on many roofs that is typically mistaken for dirt or soot is really a species of algae called Gloeocapsa Magma. This algae is transferred through the air and collects on the exterior surfaces of your home, including your roof, where it feeds and grows.

Besides causing uninviting black streaks, these algae also feed on the limestone filler in your shingles, causing harmful damage and wear and tear to your roof.

Limestone is great for driveways and roads, but on a roof, it can be eaten by bacteria. That bacteria is what causes the black streaking on your roof, which is not only unsightly but is also eating away at the components of your roof.

Soft Washing Removes all present bacteria, which is going to undoubtedly help add life to your roof!

Reasons to Soft Wash Your Roof

For many years, people have turned to pressure or power washing to clean their roof, however, they aren’t fixing the root of the issue.

Only the surface layer of mold, mildew, algae, and bacteria can be removed from your roof with power washing. The discoloration may disappear for now, but without getting rid of the algae, discoloration frequently returns due to regrowth within six months.

The SoftWash System we utilize completely cleans your roof and removes stain-causing bacteria. This soft washing service lasts 4 to 6 times longer than traditional pressure washing.
