Soft Wash Roof Cleaning

Well it’s Alive! Yes! Those ugly black streaks known as roof algae or the scientific name Gloeocapsa Magma, has gained notoriety in the Southeastern part of the United States.  This particular type of cyanobacteria is responsible for creating black stains and streaks on roofs. The bacteria accumulate over time as it feeds on moisture and calcium carbonate. This accumulation begins to show the black stains as the cyanobacteria develop their dark and hard UV-protective outer coating. These stains take months, or even years, to appear, but once they are present they are here to stay, living and feeding on your roof shingles. So how did they get on my roof you ask? Well you could thank your neighbor or someone in the area, algae spore are thought to break free and become air born and land on your house. These algae spore set up shop on the North Side of your house, as they begin to feed on your asphalt shingle. Every rainfall or moist weather forecast causes an increase in the growth of the roof algae / Gloeocapsa Magma. This formation of roof algae can be noticed streaking towards your gutter line. As our climate in Tennessee begin to warm our problem with roof algae begins growing as well.
