What Can Be Done About A Dirty Roof in Massapequa NY?
Dirty-Roof.Com specializes in cleaning the grime off your roof using a little known process called “Soft Washing”. This method of roof cleaning is the only way to properly and safely clean asphalt shingles as recommended by the asphalt roofing manufacturers association (ARMA).
How Does Soft Washing Actually Work?
Soft Washing generally starts with an inspection of your roofing material, with our attention to any particular areas of concern. Once we’ve learned a little more about your particular roof we will begin spraying a specially formulated detergent onto your entire roof that will fully kill and remove all the mold, algae and lichen’s that are actually feeding on the materials in your shingles. After thoroughly spraying your roof we then use a very soft stream of water through a specialized water nozzle and pump that gently rinses the grime away without harming the integrity of your shingles.
What Does Moss and Roof Algae Do?
Roof Algae is quickly becoming a problem for some Massapequa NY home owners. Algae growing on your roof will show itself in the form of dark streaks running down your roof, which many people make the mistake of thinking these are water stains. When in fact it’s algae feeding off the limestone that is used in all Asphalt shingle products. When it rains the rainwater spreads the Algae down your roof in those tell-tale black streaks.
