What Causes Dark Stains on a South Florida Roofs?
Algae is the number one cause of a dirty, black roof. Algae thrive in humid and moist environments like what is found in South Florida. The most common type of algae to affect South Florida roofs is Gloeocapsa Magma. Algae can grow quickly and make your roof black quickly. Once algae are present in the area, it can spread quickly. The algae release spores that are carried by the wind, birds and small animals to other rooftops in the area. It should be noted that an algae infestation can occur on any type of South Florida roofs which is the common issue.
When your roof is dirty, your roof tiles are not as reflective. This causes the roof to absorb and retain heat, which can increase your cooling bill. A dirty roof can also attract animals like roof rats, squirrels and raccoons. By cleaning your roof, you are protecting your health, improving your home’s curb appeal and improve energy savings.
Non-Pressure Washing Roof Cleaning
Pressure washing is typically not recommended on most roofing systems because it can fade til roofs, cause damage that leads to leaks and removes the granules on shingled roofs. Our system does not use pressure to clean your roof. We can safely remove black mold, mildew and algae from your roof without damaging its surface.
We will apply a chemical solution that is designed to kill microscopic spores, algae, mildew and fungus using a low-pressure sprayer. Our chemical roof cleaning has been given approval by the Asphalt Roofing Manufactures Association. Our formula can be used on fiberglass shingles, asphalt shingles, slate roofs, cement tiles, flat tiles and barrel tiles.
We also offer pressure washing services. Pressure washing is perfect for vinyl/PVC, aluminum, stucco, concrete, brick and wood gutters, fascia and soffits. We have both hot and cold water systems to ensure the best results for all of your exterior cleaning needs.
