No, the black stuff on your roof is not dirt. These black areas are really gloeocapsa magma, an airborne algae that feeds off the limestone in your shingling.
If left on its own, gloeocapsa magma will multiply and eventually undermine your roof’s structure. The best way to get rid of gloeocapsa magma is to engage in a professional roof cleaning every 6-12 months. A professional roof cleaning will keep the gloeocapsa magma from breaking through your shingles and causing damage to the overall structure of your roof.
The short answer is no. Pressure washing is a great way to get dirt and stains off your home’s stronger surfaces. Things like concrete, brick, and hardwood are durable enough to use high pressure washing on. Other surfaces around your home may be more susceptible to damages. This is why Spartan Power Washing and Home Services offers professional soft washing as well.
Soft washing is a gentler option for cleaning your home surfaces. Soft washing utilizes biodegradable, eco-friendly chemicals to break down the dirt, mold, and mildew on your more fragile surfaces before washing and sanitizing these surfaces with a light bleach-water mixture. It’s best to consult with a professional when considering what option to use on your home surfaces. Spartan Power Washing and Home Services offers professional soft washing and pressure washing in Stratford, so you can count on us to make the best choices for your home surfaces.
