Soft Wash Roof Cleaning

Exploring the Causes of Roof Stains: Uncovering What Lies Beneath

Revolutionizing the roof cleaning industry, a groundbreaking approach emerged in the late 1980s. Rather than simply removing the ugly black streaks on rooftops, we now focus on treating this organic infection with algaecide, as you would in your garden. This shift altered everything, allowing us to go beyond basic cleaning and eradicate this problem at its source. Roof cleaning was forever changed and no longer considered merely a “garage art”.

Uncovering the Hidden Perpetrators

Gloeocapsa Magma is the true culprit that causes black streaks on roofs and surfaces. Other forms of microorganisms can be found in union with the bacteria, including mold, fungi, algae, mildew, lichen, and moss.

Gloeocapsa Magma and its cohorts are the true cause of unsightly black streaks on roofs and surfaces. Associated with this bacteria are mold, fungi, algae, mildew, lichen, and moss. Together they create an accumulated growth which leads to discoloration and damage of many materials.

It is important to identify what kind of growth you have in order to adequately treat it and take preventative measures for further growth. Professional inspections are recommended in order to properly diagnose the issue at hand. 

Roofing surfaces often contain materials that fuel microbial growth, such as shingles that contain limestone. This can give algae, mildew, and bacteria the nutrients required for sustenance. As a result, these organisms may metabolize these materials and use them as a food source.

That same Cyanobacteria Gloeocapsa Magma found on roofs will grow on wood, concrete, siding, aluminum, and other surfaces as well. The good news is that through soft washing, these stains/microorganisms can be 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 we believe that the treatment of a roof or surface is more beneficial to rid the source of the staining rather than just blasting away at the surface!
