Fairport Roof Cleaning
Have you noticed that your roof has black streaks on it? Believe it or not, that’s actually because of algae! Algae spores can settle on your roof and thrive in moist areas. They especially love asphalt shingles because of the limestone content. They leech it out, which can make shingles brittle. Such microorganisms thrive on the section of your roofing least exposed to ultraviolet rays. Dark algae streaks, when left untreated, gradually eat into and damage your shingles.
All of the unsightly invasion is effectively handled by the professional roof cleaning technicians at BF Home Services in . We recommend our proven roof washing techniques that safely eliminate algae using a soft washing method and biodegradable cleaning agents.
Origin of Algae
When Fairport experiences cooler and wetter conditions, it results in a moist roof, creating an ideal breeding ground for this microorganism. After these algae spores land on your roof’s moist areas, they take root and feed on the limestone present in your shingles. As they grow, they retain more water and spread. Eventually you’re left with black streaks on your shingles. The black residue left behind streaks down your roof, possibly staining other home exterior sections like your siding. An effective roof cleaning by BF Home Services is the best way to minimize algae’s damaging impact. Without a thorough roof washing, the algae infestation will destroy your shingles and necessitate a repair or replacement.
