Chemical Roof Cleaning
Question: Why is my roof black?
Answer: Most dirty roofs are covered in various molds, algae, fungus, and lichen. Roof algae is most commonly Gloeocapsa magma (which isn’t even algae, but a bacteria). Put most basically, this bacteria photolyze (eat) water and expels oxygenas, leaving the black streaks that show up.
Cleaning your roof with Amazingly Clean’s System not only looks great, but aids in the roof’s durability, integrity and prolongs its longevity. This bacteria will grow on all roof surfaces whether tiles, shingles or aluminum and will in time cause structural decomposition. It weakens the aggregate composite mixtures in the tiles making them brittle(porous), eating away the limestone in shingles or oxidizing any protective coatings on painted aluminum roofs. The answer to preserving your roof’s longevity is to kill this bacteria and treat the algae. We use the right products and additives to do the job right and not harm the structure, keeping your roof’ a longer life cycle for years to come.
Our Process for Roof Cleaning:
Apply product using low pressure machine with high volume, producing a foam that stays on the roof and not your plants. As a precaution we take the extra step, covering all plants and vegetation so there is no harm.
Rinsing is optional, but effective for immediate results. Low pressure 50 to 150 psi is used (just like a garden hose if rinsing is needed).
Let us help maintain your roof’s life by spraying a mold & mildew preventer (once every 6 to 12 months on shingles or tiles).
Enjoy your new roof, knowing the mold and mildew is dead.
With our process, roof bacteria growth is minimized anywhere from 2-5 years sometimes (depending on wind, conditions, tree overgrowth and water surrounding structure).
