Your Roof's Potential Problems

Your Roof's Potential Problems
HydroClean Pressure Washing Freshly installed shingles

Stage 1: Invisible Algae

Once your new 30-year roof is installed, spores can travel from nearby algae growth and begin infesting your roof. The algae starts growing and can't be seen for many years.

Stage 2: Black Stains & Streaks

Around 5-10 years into the life of the roof, you will begin to notice black stains and streaks, especially on the shaded areas of the roof. The algae form the black covering to protect themselves from the sunlight. The algae feed on the lime deposits present in the shingles.

Stage 3: Lichen & Moss Growth

Between years 10-15 of the roof, the black streaks have progressed to grow lichen or moss. The shingles have been degraded and the algae can reduce the life of the roof up to 50% In any case you are not likely to get the full 30-year life from your roof.

HydroClean's Soft Wash Solution

Step 3

Plant & Property Protection

Our first step is to water and saturate all vegetation and parts of the home where we will be cleaning the roof. We have a tech on the ground at all times rinsing and catching the overspray from the roof solution.

Roof Soft Wash

Our next step is to apply our ARMA (shingle manufacturer association) recommended biocide solution to the roof. The soft wash application ensures the shingles are not damaged by pressure. The biocide solution kills the roof algae at the source and produces immediate results.

Backed by out 5 Year Warranty

Black streak and stains will be cleaned the day of service, lichen and moss will turn white and will fall off 6-8 weeks after service. With our Limited 5 Year Warranty if any stains appear within one year of service we will come back to retreat the roof for free.
