One of the most common reasons people replace their roof is due to damaging algae, moss and lichen growth.
Did you know those ugly black streaks and stains on your roof could be safely cleaned and treated? Did you realize those ugly streaks are actually fungus and bacteria eating away at your roof?
Here at Clearview Washing, our soft wash eco-friendly roof cleaning method can safely clean your roof and treat the fungus feeding on your shingles. The black stains on your roof are a form of Gloeocapsa Magma and are transported from roof to roof by airborne spores. Over time, the bacteria develop a filament root system and begins to eat into the shingles, thus slowly decomposing your roof.
In order to treat these types of bacteria and algae, they must be cleaned with the appropriate amount of eco-friendly biodegradable solutions to ensure a 100% kill ratio. Pressure washing will not only damage your roof but will result in the bacteria and/or algae growing right back. Roofs, whether shingle, tile, slate, shake, membrane or metal, will lose as much as 50% of their service life from an infestation of these organisms.
This loss of service life can cost property owners thousands of dollars in premature replacement and service costs. In addition to the damage a dirty roof will cause, dark staining on your roof will absorb more heat and raise under-roof attic temperatures, costing property owners additional sums of money in terms of electricity costs. Cleaning your roof can save as much 40% off your monthly electric bill. Based on this fact, most roof cleanings will pay for themselves within one year!
