Roof Cleaning is the process to remove black roof stains including Green Algae and Black Algae “gloeocapsa magma” from roofing materials in areas where high humidity is prevalent. The black roof stains are also very likely to harbor a number of molds or fungi. Unlike algae, the fungi on our roofs lacks chlorophyll and are unable to manufacture food from raw materials. The algae must get nutrition from some form of organic matter. To thrive, they also require a warm, humid environment. At Squeaky Peak we can make your roof tiles or shingles look new again, while extending the life of your shingles. We use a low-pressure chemical roof cleaning process and apply our roof cleaning solution with no more pressure than what typically comes from your water hose. Once applied, our roof cleaning solution will remove the darkest roof stains in minutes! A pressure washer should never be used to clean any roof! The high pressure washing systems of water produced by a pressure washer will dislodge large quantities of the protective granules covering your shingles(or remove the clear coating on tiles) and leave your shingles vulnerable to the elements. This will lead to early roof failure and void any warranty that you may have on your tiles or shingle roof!
Top 4 Reasons to Clean your Roof
1) Stop the damage that roof staining organisms are doing to your roof. These organisms, specifically algae, lichens, and moss are feeding off the organic material in your shingles.
2) Roof algae, lichens and/or moss can eat through your shingles and into your roof deck causing wood rot. When the wood rots, moisture gets in through the cracks and creates an environment hospitable to mold growth.
3) Your insurance company can cancel your homeowners policy for having a dirty roof. Insurance companies are increasingly demanding that homeowners have their stained roofs cleaned.
4) Restore the beauty of your home. A dirty roof detracts from your home's curb appeal. You clean your siding, porches, and walkways.
