How To Treat Black Streaks On Your Roof

How to treat black streaks on roof

Have you noticed black streaks on the roof of your home? You aren't alone. Gloeocapsa magma is a bacteria that travels to your roof as spores on the wind. Once on your roof, these bacteria find a shady, cool spot to grow on your roof. Over time, they will be visible to the naked eye as black or green streaks on your roof.

The reason these bacteria find themselves on roofing is because asphalt shingles are made with limestone filaments. Gloeocapsa magma feeds on the limestone in your shingles, breaking down the protective barrier that is meant to protect your home. Over time, this weakens your shingles and can lead to breakage and damage to your roof.

Fighting Gloeocapsa Magma

The best way to combat damages to your roof is to invest in professional roof cleaning with a pressure washing company. Roof cleaning utilizes soft washing technology to keep your roof sanitized. Soft washing is a gentle cleaning option.

To be truly harmful, gloeocapsa magma needs to fester for years. By engaging in a seasonal roof cleaning with a reputable company will clear away the gloeocapsa magma before it becomes an issue.

Most pressure washing companies offer some sort of roof cleaning option for your home. The best option when it comes to a professional roof cleaning is to engage in a professional soft washing.

Soft washing utilizes lower water pressures than other options to ensure your roof is protected throughout the cleaning process. Because your roof is made up of more fragile materials, it's important to ensure your cleaning process is gentle.

Keeping Your Roof Clean

By hiring a professional pressure washing company, you're helping to protect your roof against bacteria, mold, and mildew. By investing in a professional roof cleaning, you help to both clean and protect your roofing from damages.

Our roof cleaning option utilizes soft washing, which begins with an application of eco-friendly, biodegradable chemicals that break down layers and layers of bacteria on your roof. These chemicals are perfectly safe for your roof and aren't damaging to the wildlife or plant life surrounding your home.

Once they've broken through the gloeocapsa magma on your roof, the mess is washed away with a gentle water-bleach mixture that cleans and sanitizes your roof.
