Most people think roof stains (the black streaks on a roof) are purely cosmetic. This however, is not the case. The stains that appear on your roof are algae that are methodically reducing the lifespan of your roof. These organisms feed on the limestone filler of the shingle causing the reflective ceramic granules to loosen and end up in your gutter. As these granules disappear you may notice a rise in your utility bills. Unable to effectively reflect the sun's rays away in summer, your AC unit will find itself working overtime to keep your property cool. The black streaks also absorb and hold heat to your roof's surface, making your building hotter in the summer. In the winter, your heating bill will inch upward as the shingles are less likely to retain the heat in your property as they did when they were new. A dirty roof also reduces your property's curb-appeal and value.
We can erase the black streaks and kill the algae!! We are a certified roof cleaner in Troy Ohio. We are certified by the RCIA (Roof Cleaning Institute of America). Our roof cleaning method uses NO PRESSURE equipment. Pressure washing will remove granules from the shingles. We will not use Sodium Hydroxide as this chemical will eat away at the tar in the shingle. We only use chemicals approved by ARMA (Asphalt Roofing Manufacturers Association).
Our mixture does all of the work to remove dark streaks and stains from your roof and requires no pressure or heavy rinsing. Because we do not have to rinse, your roof will stay cleaner longer. Leaving the mixture on the roof creates a roof treatment or a hostile environment for future algae growth. Each time it rains, a small amount of mixture is washed off to help re-clean your roof over and over again. After the mixture biodegrades and evaporates from the clean roof, the dried crystals and surfactant act as a roof treatment to keep the roof cleaner longer as it rains. This allows us to comfortably offer our 2 year guarantee that your roof will remain free of stains.
We only spray the roof, not your plants. We bag the ends of downspouts, collect all the mixture run-off from the roof and dispose of it properly. We further protect your plants, grass and the surrounding area by spraying the landscaping with water before, during, and after applying chemical.
