Roof Cleaning Olney MD – FAQ


Q. What are the stains actually up on your roof?

  1. Most people will tell you its all from the trees, possibly from planes, leaf stains but all of these assumptions are wrong. The ugly black streaks are actually a blue-green algae known as Gloeocapsa Magma that is spread by airborne spores. These spores attack the lime that your shingles are made from.

Q. What is the best way to clean this Gloeocapsa Magma?

  1. The absolute best way to clean an Asphalt roof  and the only process that ARMA (Asphalt Roofing Manufacturers Association) Suggests is our no pressure roof cleaning solution process. We use a specialty formulated chemical combination to kill all the algae without the use of a pressure washer at all.

Q. Will the chemical kill or at least damage our plants, grass, etc?

  1. Our roof cleaning technicians always work in teams of two or more for safety and for the wellbeing of your home and plants.  While one technician is up cleaning the roof the ground man insures safety of cleaner and landscaping, by using ladder stand offs, and copious amounts of water

Q. How long with this clean last?

  1. While every roof is different we can comfortably say that after we clean your roof it will stay clean a minimum of 3 years without any visible mold growth.
