SAVE YOUR ROOF! Those unsightly black streaks growing on your roof are not JUST dirt! This is bacteria and algae decomposing on your roof and stealing years away form the life of your investment. Why and how does this happen? In the mid to late 1980’s shingle manufacturers switched from ceramic aggregate to limestone. Limestone is the base nutrient for Gleocapsa Magma. What the heck is that?
Gleocapsa Magma is a bacteria that has been prevalent in the south, but has marched northward. And its main purpose in life is to eat your roof. This is the Pac Man of bacterial. Our process kills this bacteria. We our able to your warranty your roof for 3 years, with scheduled maintenance cleaning every 5 years.
Think of the instant savings! Those black streaks coagulate into black clouds on your roof, absorbing heat and skyrocketing the cost of cooling your home in the summer. Some customers have seen up to 50% off their utility bills in summer months. Our process will pay for itself with the year and it makes your home look great too! What a smart option to have!
Clean Suds Cleaning uses chemistry to clean your investments. Our main ingredient is sodium hypochlorite, it kills bacteria, fungus, and algae growing on and degrading surfaces. This is mixed with an activator and surfactant to make sure the solution kills all organisms down to the root. The process is very similar to the way herbicides work on weeds. You know the type- it allows you to spray the herbicide onto the weed and it will destroy it down to the root system.
As we apply our chemicals, with a low pressure applicator, we protect any plant life and shrubbery by presoaking the environment we are working in and the afterwards, rinsing thoroughly. After that we apply a neutralizer that brings our work zone back to a neutral pH level. Our process, known as “soft washing” is the preferred method by the Asphalt Roofing Manufacturers Association.
