Roof Cleaning

roof cleaning

Black Algae (Gloeocapsa Magma) moss and lichen are eating your roof shingles and causing black stains and streaks. 

How We Do it

Soft washing is more than roof cleaning. The products developed for SoftWash Platoon not only clean stains but also sanitize, penetrate, and eliminate the root of the issue. The main culprit of most roof staining that causes prevalent black streaks is a bacteria called Gloeocapsa Magma. Soft washing has the ability to kill the pest from the root up, achieving a truly clean surface.

Why Clean Your Roof?

Shingles break down from decomposition caused by algae and fungal filament root systems because algae and fungi have a hunger for limestone fillers. Limestone, which contains phosphates, is an excellent source of nutrients for algae and fungi.The waste created by the algae and fungi metabolizing the limestone fillers is acidic and damages the shingles.

That same Cyanobacteria Gloeocapsa Magma found on roofs will grow on wood, concrete, vinyl siding, aluminum, and other surfaces as well. The good news is that through soft washing, these stains/microorganisms can be safely removed! In regards to other possible culprits inhabiting a roof, many nitrogen fixing blue-green algae will grow in areas with little to no nutrients. They are able to sustain themselves because nitrogen fixing organisms have the ability to create nutrients solely through the nodules on their filament root systems. That is why here at SoftWash Systems, we believe that treatment of a roof or surface is more beneficial to rid the source of the staining rather than just blasting away at the surface!
