Roof cleaning - Soft Washing method is the process to remove dirt, algae and moss from roofs. Roof cleaning can extend the duration of a roof's ability to function. Algae and other types of build-up often form on parts of roofs that are shaded, and can reduce a roof's life expectancy. The presence of soot, dirt, or biomass can affect how much sunlight is absorbed by a roof and thus the amount of heat a building absorbs.
streaks that are staining the roof are actually a bacteria called Gloeocapsa
Magma. This is the main culprit for most of the roof staining in
Michigan. There are a few more culprits that also grow up on roofs making
a mess of things. Roof top organisms like mildew and algae are unsightly
but not as destructive as some of the more aggressive bacteria and fungus.
Moss and Lichens also grow where destructive growth has been started
by the fungal growths. These algae, mold, mildew, bacteria, lichen and
moss directly decompose and break down roofing materials.
Asphalt roof cleaning is a sound choice in extending the lifespan of your roof. The build-up of algae, lichen and moss will damage your asphalt shingles, resulting in an early roof replacement. The Asphalt Roof Manufactures Association highly recommends regular cleaning and maintenance of your roof. The choice to maintain your roof’s surface should be an important and informed decision. If left untreated, the shingles will accumulate more organic growth and retain excessive moisture, causing deterioration and decomposition. The valleys of your roof are especially vulnerable to deterioration due to the channeling of rain water, creating a breeding ground for the organisms. Essentially, a roof that retains moisture is a roof that will eventually fail.
