Roof Cleaning

Your Roof Cleaning Specialists in the North New Jersey area

Your home in North New Jersey is a valuable investment, and maintaining it is crucial for preserving its value. This includes taking care of your roof. Don't overlook the potential dangers of Gloeocapsa Magma, a bacteria that is commonly referred to as “roof algae”, it can cause dark streaks and serious damage to your roof, resulting in leaks and premature replacement.

At Softwash Ranger, we understand the importance of proper roof maintenance. Modern roofing products can last over 30 years with the right care. Neglecting your roof, however, allows the black streaks to spread, compromising the integrity of your shingles. This bacteria feeds on the limestone-based filler in your shingles, leading to leaks, shingle damage, and the need for premature roof replacement.

Keeping your roof clean is not solely about aesthetic appeal - it also extends the lifespan of your roof and eliminates potential health hazards. Bacteria, algae, and mold can trigger allergies and other health issues, so removing them is always a wise choice. Our team of roof cleaning experts will thoroughly clean your roof, removing debris, stains, dirt, and biological growth, restoring it to its original condition.

Stages of Roof Product infestation VS. Damage To System

Stage one is easy to see on the north and west sides of your roof. There, because the direction of the rising and setting sun, the roof gets less direct sunlight and therefore stays moist longer from the morning dew-points and humidity.  On these sides of the roof spores from a decomposing bacteria called Gloeocapsa Magma will land and take root. These spores which need little nutrients to grow will flourish feeding only on dust settling on the roof as well as the limestone filler found in the shingles. They will grow and create silver dollar size colonies that will show as black spots on the roof. Eventually because the roof is pitched these round colonies will begin to elongate and appear as streaks.

Though Gloeocapsa Magma is not highly destructive at this point they are increasing under roof temperatures as they darken the roof. Also as they eat they give off waste which is acidic as well as creates a nutrient base for later destructive fungal arrivals.

Stage one roofs have little irreversible damage and can easily be treated. Also catching your roof at this stage can save you significantly on treatment costs.
