Roof Cleaning Powhatan

Roof cleaning is not a “pressure washing” job. It is not wise to let anyone clean your roof by power washing, as high pressure water can release large amounts of roofing granules which can dislodge very easily. This is why most gutters always have a certain amount of roofing granules inside that have released from rain and wind.
Everything staining the roof is alive and can easily spread from one part of your roof to another. Our roof cleaning process kills mold, mildew, algae and moss. We approach this like “pest control” which is similar to how an exterminator treats a home for roaches. Cleaning a roof with a pressure washer is like power washing to get rid of roaches. -just like an exterminator has the right products to kill and completely eliminate roaches. We use the right product to completely eliminate the roof mold.
Black staining on a roof is a single cell bacteria called Gloeocapsa Magma which spreads from roof to roof through spores in the atmosphere. These spores first start to land on the roof the same day it’s installed, but can take many years to become visible and will usually show sooner on the shadier side of the roof. Take caution, as just because the roof appears stained only on certain sections you can be sure these spores are everywhere. Mold spores are not conscious, and just land everywhere, but generally grow faster on the shady sides of the roof where it is cooler and is more humid.
