Steve’s Power Washing can assist you with ugly roof problem. The process we use when cleaning all types of roofing materials including asphalt shingles is called soft washing. The soft wash process utilizes a low-pressure cleaning solution application which will remove the black streaks, algae, lichen and moss from your roof. The soft wash cleaning process is the recommended roof cleaning technique for cleaning asphalt shingled roofs.
The black streaks that you see on your roof are caused by algae growth. This algae growth is actually eating away at your home’s roof, deteriorating the shingle and is also causing the loosening of the protective granules. This deterioration process will shorten your roof’s lifespan by about 30%. In addition to the deterioration caused by the algae growth, a roof with black streaks will not heat evenly causing hot pockets of air in your home’s attic space. These hot pockets of air cause your home’s heating and cooling system to work harder and less efficiently when being used due to inconsistent air temperatures.
