Did you ever wonder what those black stains and streaks are on your roof? It’s not dirt or tree droppings or exhaust from an airplane. It’s a bacteria called Gloeocapsa Magma feeding on your roofing materials. As it eats away at your roof, other culprits like mold, mildew, fungus, algae, moss and lichen begin to form. Rooftop fungus and bacteria are not just an aesthetics issue. These microorganisms are actually breaking down and decomposing your roof at an alarming rate. These pests attach with a root system, eat at your shingles creating acids, multiply and turn your roof black super heating your attic space costing you as much as 40% extra on you summer cooling electric bill. Your roof will easily last as long as or longer than your rating if they are properly maintained. Your roof whether it is shingle, tile slate, shake, membrane, or metal can lose as much as 50% of their service life from an infestation of these microorganisms. That’s half of its life. Mold, Mildew, fungus and algae are all in the top 10 allergy irritants. If you, your family, or your pets have allergies or are sensitive to dust and mold, Think about what is living and breeding right above you.That’s the bad news.
Here’s the good news.Pink can clean it. Whether it’s on your roof, siding, brick or sidewalk, we can remove it permanently for less than you might think. An average roof cleaning will typically cost less than 1/10th of what it will cost you to replace your roof and can usually be completed in a couple of hours Remember, these bacteria, fungus, mold and algae have a root system and like a weed if you don’t get the root, it will grow right back. Power washing is a no-no which will damage your roof, blow the bacteria, fungus and spores all around only to begin multiplying again. We use a safe proprietary chemical mixture applied with a softwash system that kills all of these microorganisms. That is correct, it kills all of the mold, mildew, algae, fungus, bacteria, mosses, and lichen and will last 4 to 6 times longer than power washing alone. Softwashing is applying the mixture with less than hose pressure so there is no damage from high pressure and allowing the chemicals to do the work much like an exterminator for termites or a landscaper for weeds with one difference, you will get immediate results!
