Why Roof Cleaning Matters

Why does roof cleaning matter? Well every property – whether it’s commercial or residential, big or small, stucco or vinyl – has a few core things in common. The most obvious? A roof. We completely rely on roofing to provide the elements that are most valuable to a building. Soft washing is the best way to preserve this important part of your property.

Gloeocapsa Magma: Big name, big roofing threat
There’s a catch. Other things want to make themselves at home on roofing, too. The biggest threat to roofing is a type of bacterial growth called Gloeocapsa Magma. It’s similar to algae in that it clings to outdoor surfaces, creating those telltale black stains. Gloeocapsa Magma gravitates towards roofing because of the limestone composite that is found in most shingles. Once it takes hold, the bacteria:

    • Starts to spread, bringing its black streaks along with it
    • Eats away at the limestone composite
    • Degrades your shingles and compromises its integrity.
    • Absorbs heat, which in turn damages and cracks roofing

The solution: Soft Washing
Gloeocapsa Magma is stubborn. Soft washing is the only way to effectively remove the bacteria without harming your shingles. Whether you’re a property owner, manager, or a power washing professional, “soft wash solutions” and “roof cleaning” are the only phrases that belong in a sentence together.

Soft washing distributes chemical cleaners on your affected roofing using a low-pressure applicator. As the chemicals work their way into your shingles, they kill the bacterial growth, break down the buildup, and safeguard the quality of your roof.

Conventional pressure washing isn’t an appropriate solution for roofs. The power is too much for shingles to safely handle, which means that you might damage your roofing in the pursuit of cleaning it.

With just a little bit of professional soft wash attention, your roof can regain its curb appeal and serve you faithfully for years into the future. From soft washing systems to roof cleaner, is here to help you protect your property from the very top.
