Homeowners go to great lengths to keep their homes looking neat and tidy. Cutting grass, shoveling the path, power washing the porch and exterior, renovating, and more, are just part of the process to a high-quality house. Roof cleaning, on the other hand, is what most homeowners overlook, a house without a roof is no house.
Your roof and drains may be trivial or an attractive factor to keep your house clean and elegant, but it does not make them somehow less important to maintain. It is, in addition, among the most crucial parts of the house to keep clean. Unlike many other house improvements that homeowners may be concerned about, cleaning the rooftop can keep you from getting costly repairs.
Black streaks on your roof is an algae known as“Gloecoapsa Magma” this is a bacteria that breaks down your roofing shingles by feeding off the
granules. This parasite infestation spreads quickly and will reduce the life of your roof. Typically asphalt shingle roofs begin to see the visible spread of black streaks on roofs 8-10 years old. It is best to address this upon first observation, if left you may begin to observe moss growth on your roof which also feeds off your asphalt shingle granules causing a reduction of the roofs lifespan. Insurance companies over the years have been increasingly addressing issues on homeowners roofs by sending notices of cancellation for observance of organic growths. They provide home owner with 2 options typically, 1) Replace the roof or 2) Clean the roof. Maximize the life of your roof with proper maintenance!
