Why Is It Important To Keep Your Roof Clean?
Little bit of science:
Over time your roof may become slightly green which is simply Algae growing on your roof. Then, you will see black streaks all over your roof, typically starts growing on the north side first. Those black streaks is a bacteria called Gloeocapsa Magma. Just like all living things, it has to consume something to grow. Unfortunately, it feeds on limestone of your shingles, permanently damaging them over time. The roof shingle manufacturers use limestone to give shingles more weight, keeping them on your roof during the heavy storms. Then, moss will start to form on your roof. Moss typically grows slightly under the shingles, protecting it self from the sun. As it grows, it lifts the roof shingles with it, sometimes causing premature leaks.
When roof turns mostly black, or covered with moss, home owner typically calls the roofing company. Unfortunately, some roofers are unaware of soft washing and typically advice the homeowner to get a new roof. You can use Google search for yourself to find that 80% of roofs are replaced prematurely. Soft washing can add years of life to your roof, it’s also fraction of a coast!
