Why Roof Cleaning Is Essential

Most people pay little attention to the appearance of their roof until there is a problem. Like most issues, roof problems start small, microscopic to be exact. During the cold winter months moss and algae generate spores that can land on your roof here in Northern New Jersey. During the spring months, these spores become active, growing in number and eating away at your roof. As more and more algae, moss, and lichens invade your roof it’s appearance begins to suffer as black streaks begin to stretch across your roof eventually compromising the long term endurance of your roof. This makes roof cleaning one of the most important maintenance items you should have completed every year. At Softwash Ranger our soft wash roof cleaning service is specially designed to remove 100% of the contaminants that can undermine the endurance of your roof without compromising it’s integrity.

What About Those Black Streaks?

Most issues with the appearance and quality of your roof are due to a type of bacteria called Gloeocapsa Magma. Colonies of these bacteria show up as black streaks and patches on your roof, which continue to grow until your entire roof is covered. Not only does this destroy the curb appeal of your home but also the bacteria are actually destroying your shingles! Eating away at the limestone fillers used them. Many homeowners have had to deal with premature roof replacement or expensive repairs because they let these bacteria grow unchecked. The effects of these bacteria are evident not only in the appearance of your shingles but also your energy bills. A roof covered with these bacteria absorbs heat, resulting in high cooling costs, especially during these summer months!
