Our algae removal process involves the application of an industry-proven mix of detergents, followed by a soft-wash rinse. High pressure power washers, which could damage the roof, ARE NOT used. We utilize the cleaning process recommended by ARMA (Asphalt Roofing Manufacturers Association) and GAF (North America’s largest shingle manufacturer).
The detergents and chemicals we use are safe for your family, pets and landscaping. Although we use powerful cleaning agents, we protect your landscaping by thoroughly soaking the surrounding area with clean water before, during and after the cleaning process – diluting any overspray.
With a whole roof cleaning, your shingles should remain algae-free for 2-3 years. Most roofs however, remain clean for at least four years before the algae reappears. Partial roof cleanings are NOT recommended. The algae is nearly invisible in its early stages and once it appears on some roof surfaces, it is most likely beginning to spread to other areas as well. It is less noticeable and spreads more slowly on roof surfaces that receive the most sunlight.
