Roof cleaning can improve the life of your shingles by 50 percent!
We all know the importance of having a roof over our head, but most people don’t give much thought to the “health” of their roofs.
Ever notice those black streaks running down your or your neighbor’s roof? Often mistaken for soot, dirt, moss or tree droppings, the black streaks are actually prehistoric organisms called Gloeocapsa Magma but commonly referred to as roof algae.
This type of algae is contained in and transported through the air, and tends to collect and grow upon roofing structures. Besides looking awful, the problem posed by the algae is the fact that it feeds on limestone – limestone that can be found in asphalt shingles. Over time, the algae will slowly consume the limestone, ultimately weakening the shingles.
So what should you do?
First, don’t panic. There is no need to spend up to 20 times as much to replace a roof that still has years of life left. Agent Clean can safely restore your roof back to its original beauty and effectiveness.
