Whats growing on my roof?
Did you know your roof is not dirty at all, it’s infested. Infested by tiny micro organisms that are dining on your roof like an all you can eat buffet. These Algae, molds, mildews and bacteria are actually decomposing the surfaces they are growing on. Nature uses these tiny micro organisms to break down larger objects into smaller items eventually becoming part of the soil. This is called decomposition. Your roof and other surfaces around your property are being attacked and decomposed right before your very eyes. Those stains on your roof are actually a form of algae known as gloeocapsa magama and they are literally eating your roof. This algae feeds on the limestone granules embedded in your roofs shingles. It thrives on shaded roof exposures, particularly north facing roofs that remain moist due to lack of sunshine. The algae attaches to your roof with a filament root structure that firmly embeds itself into the singles. As the colonies grow; mold, moss and mildew often follow.
What is the SoftWash roof treatment process?
When our technicians arrive at your home, they will assess your roof and perform a complete inspection of the overall condition. Our technicians will then apply the first coat of the cleaner. The first coat is a direct application to the more severe areas; this will allow those areas to dwell for 10-15 minutes prior to the full application. The second coat is a full application of all areas of growth. This coat will eradicate 100% of all bacteria; restoring the proper appearance and condition to the once infected shingles. Our technicians are fully trained to identify even the earliest signs of growth, so all areas will be treated regardless of the stage.
How do I know it’s safe and will actually work?
Our certified “SoftWash” system has been used throughout the country to clean and treat over 100,000 roofs just like yours. Our process has been fully approved by all shingles manufacturers including ARMA (Asphalt Roofing Manufacturers Association). The “SoftWash” process is also recommended by all insurance companies.
Will I see immediate differences in my roof?
Yes, and no. Our “SoftWash” treatment is sprayed on the roof like a weed killer. The moss is immediately killed but then turns into what looks like little white cotton balls and then we let mother nature run its course. The moss deteriorates off the roof naturally over time with rain and sunshine. However the removal of stains on your roof is immediate and in most cases you will see a new roof you’ve never seen before.
How long does the treatment last?
This treatment not only kills the moss on your roof, it kills all the algae and bacteria that feed the moss. Which means if there is no food source for the moss it will take that much longer to come back, unlike the usual zinc moss treatment that only kills moss. Our soft wash treatment is guaranteed for 3 years and in some cases can last even longer depending on your immediate environment surrounding your home.
Is it bad for my plants, animals and kids?
The soft wash treatment is a mixture of bleach and water. But we mix the bleach at a very low percentage so it is unharmful to animals and kids. We’ve taken every precaution to protect your plant life by not over spraying past your gutter line and washing down any plants that were touched with our chemical. When the technician arrives at your home he does a full (review) of your property and takes note of any plants that may need to be sprayed down before we start the soft wash process. It is our job to take care of you in every way possible so we take all the measures needed to protect your animal and plant life.
