Low Pressure Roof Cleaning
Your homes curb appeal begins at your roof. While a clean roof often goes unnoticed, a dirty roof draws a lot of attention. A dirty roof is not only unsightly, it's actually harmful to the shingles themselves !
The ugly black streaks you see on your roof are actually a destructive bacteria known as Gloeocapsa Magma. The bacteria is carried through the air where it eventually settles on your roof, where it begins to feed on the limestone in your shingles, and starts to multiply and spread.
The black you see is actually a protective layer the bacteria forms to protect itself from the suns UV rays, which kills them.Typically most homeowners will notice the bacteria on the shaded Northern slopes of their roofs, where the sun has little effect on killing the bacteria.
