What causes dark roof stains?
It's algae that makes your beautiful roof look black and dirty. Algae thrives in moist, humid environments like we have in south Florida.Scientists have identified the most common form of roof algae as Gloeocapsa Magma. Algae grows rapidly and can turn your roof black in a short time.Once present in an area, the algae can quickly spread by airborne spores being carried from rooftop to rooftop by wind, birds and other small animals. All roof types are susceptible to algae infestation.
Why having a dirty roof is dangerous?
- Dark coloration causes your roof tiles to become less reflective, absorb and retain heat, and ultimately raise your utility bill
- It’s a breeding ground for allergens a constant health threat for anyone with allergies
- Without proper maintenance, your roof could attract animals (raccoons, squirrels and roof rats)
Cleaning your roof safeguards your health, saves you money on utilities, and maintains the curb appeal of your home.
Non Pressure Washing
For most roofing systems pressure washing is not recommended because it may remove granules from shingled roofs and cause color-fading on tile roofs or cause damaging leaks.Our non-pressure cleaning procedure removes algae, mildew and black mold from the roof while insuring no damage will be caused to the roof surface.
We apply a chemical solution using a low-pressure sprayer. Our cleaning product eradicates all mildew, fungus and algae, including harmful microscopic spores.

How long can I expect my roof to stay clean?
Roof surfaces can stay clean for up to three years or longer. There are many determining factors and variables. Trees for instance, will create shaded and damp areas, creating an ideal environment for algae and mildew to develop and thrive in.
