Eliminate those ugly black streaks on the roof and extend your roof’s life.
What are those black stains and streaks on your home’s roof? They’re a type of bacteria known as gloeocapsa magma. It is a type of airborne bacteria, and when it finds a food source, it moves in to stay. The problem for your roof is that the limestone filler in your shingles is the favorite food for the bacteria. When you see the black streaks, there is a lot of bacteria eating away and reducing the life of your roof! It is very important to stop this destruction and eliminate the bacteria before you are forced to replace your roof.
Can pressure washing eliminate this roof staining? The short answer is NO! Pressure washing a roof will immediately void any warranty from the manufacturer. Pressure washing will blast away the granules and destroy the roof.
The ONLY way to clean an asphalt shingle roof and maintain your roof’s warranty is to soft wash it. When you have your roof cleaning done by Excel Eco Clean, our certified technicians use very low pressure (think rain) and the proper eco-friendly chemicals to eliminate the bacteria, causing the staining and black streaks to disappear and the damage to your roofing materials to end. After roof cleaning, you are protected by our 5-year Roof Cleaning Warranty. If any black streaks, caused by the gloeocapsa magma bacteria come back, we will retreat for free. Your warranty is even transferable to the next owner of the home if you sell in the next 5 years. Soft washing, when done in our eco-friendly way, can do wonders for your roof, and you can also have us use the same method to clean your siding, walkways, driveway, and more.
Our cleaning methods are actually enhanced by cleaning green, so our results are extraordinary! And that means you can feel good knowing your family’s health is protected and your home is truly clean. Plus, as an added benefit, we’re all doing our part to keep the environment safe. We believe that cleaning should be done without exposing you or your family and pets to harmful chemicals, toxins, and VOCs. And to do that, we use products that are certified to be healthy for your family and the environment.
