Asphalt roofs are being infested by black mold streaks. The technical term for this dark green algae is Gloeocapsa Magma. This mold grows rapidly, with increased moisture levels leading to the growth of lichen and moss.
Luckily, the Gloeocapsa Magma Algae can be removed by a thorough roof cleaning using quality roof cleaners with a professional, low-pressure system.
Additional benefits of your professional roof restoration:
Curb Appeal: The professional cleaning will obviously improve your home’s appearance.
Your Health: The presence of roof algae in such close proximity to a living environment can pose health concerns for those with allergy problems, with the possibility of roof algae invading the home through exposed areas.
Reduce Energy Bills: As the algae grows, it loosens the protective layer of surface granules which are important to solar reflectivity. The loss of these granules, combined with the black growth spreading across your roof, will cause your roof to heat-up quicker; consequently over-working your air conditioning system on hot summer days.
Prolong the Life of Your Roof: The loss of granules will also weaken the roof shingles.
Professional low-pressure roof cleaning will NOT damage your shingles.
