Roof Cleaning News
Have areas of your roof developed dark streaks or become dark in color? If so you are not alone. Many think that this
discoloration and roof staining is a result of pollution, dust, pollen or tree sap settling on your roof. Not so! Roof staining
is caused by algae growing on your roofing shingles. Other terms for this staining are roof moss, roof fungus or roof mold.
This algae is abundant in warm humid climates. The climate in North Carolina is extremely favorable for the growth of algae.
This algae is actually a strain of bacteria known as Gleocapsa Magma, and tends to grow on areas of your roof that are
shaded by trees or get less sunlight, typically the north and west sides of your home. Asphalt shingles are manufactured
with a granulated coating that acts as a UV shield and protect ant for the shingle. These granules also happen to be a favorite
food for the Gleocapsa Magma (algae). If not properly removed, roof algae will consume and dislodge the protective granules
leaving the asphalt shingle unprotected and venerable to deterioration. This will eventually lead to early roof failure and the
need to replace your shingles years before the suggested life of the shingle has been exhausted.
Our roof cleaning process costs a fraction of the cost of roof replacement.
The darkened areas of your roof caused by algae growing on your shingles will absorb more heat from the sun’s rays.
This increases the heat in your attic, causing your air conditioning system to work harder to cool your house,
therefore increasing your utility bill. Once the dark stains are removed, the roof will attract less heat, which will result
in spending less to cool your home.
At Apple Roof Cleaning we can make your roof look new again, while extending the life of your shingles.
We use a non-pressure process to apply our roof cleaning solution. We use no more water pressure than what typically
comes from your water hose. A pressure washer should never be used to clean your roof. The high pressured stream
of water produced by a pressure washer will dislodge large quantities of the protective granules covering your shingles and
leave your shingles vulnerable to the elements. This will lead to early roof failure and void any warranty that you may have
on your shingles. Once applied, our roof cleaning solution will remove the darkest roof stains in minutes.
Apple Roof Cleaning only uses chemicals approved by the Asphalt Roofing Manufactures Association (ARMA).
