Here is a good roof cleaning article:
On roofs afflicted with algae, cleaning is a good idea
Submitted by SHNS on Mon, 09/14/2009 – 13:25 By SUSAN BANKS, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
As if homeowners don’t have enough chores to keep them busy, many shingle manufacturers now recommend periodic cleaning of the roof surface.
You heard right. Many roofs need to be washed to keep them in good shape.
The black streaks seen on many roofs are algae growth which, left unchecked, can shorten the life expectancy of the roof by feeding on the limestone filler used in some newer shingles, according to GAF Materials Corp. of Wayne, N.J., a manufacturer of roofing products since 1886. Proper cleaning can kill the algae.
Frank Shuster of South Park, Pa., noticed the stains on his roof several seasons ago. After replacing the original roof, which Shuster says never had an algae problem, he noticed the unsightly streaking on his new roof about three years after it was installed.
“It was downright ugly,” he says.
He climbed up on the roof with a jug of chlorine bleach to see if it would alleviate the problem. It did, but he says the idea of cleaning the entire roof with bleach did not appeal to him, so he called several roofing contractors about the problem to no avail.
After seeing a flier distributed by Pittsburgh Roof Cleaners, he made arrangements with the company to have his roof cleaned. According to company owner Michael Inks, this type of service is relatively new to Pittsburgh but is quite common in the hot, humid Southern states, where algae can be an extreme problem.
Afflicted roofs have dark streaks that are usually most prominent on the lower section of the roof and taper off as they reach the ridge. The discoloration is caused by the algae’s protective sheath, which turns dark to protect the organism from ultraviolet rays.
Inks first heard about roof cleaning from a man in West Virginia.
“I went to visit the guy and he took me out to a couple of jobs and showed me how it works,” he says.
While algae issues are more serious in the humid South, other parts of the country can have problems too, especially on northern exposures, which receive less sunlight.
Inks’ process, which uses a proprietary solution that includes bleach, can be performed on most roofs in about two hours. Cost starts at $395.
Shuster, whose bill was $525, asked if the cleaning solution would damage his landscaping.
“I was really concerned about overspray and the wind blowing some of these chemicals on my shrubs,” he says. “But they covered the shrubbery and also hosed it down with water during the procedure.
“The vast majority of what they applied went into the rain gutters.”
The need for roof cleaning depends on the severity of environmental contaminants, the frequency of rainfall, the propensity for dirt and dust accumulation, the roof slope and draining characteristics.
There are cleaning recipes available for the do-it-yourselfer, but GAF recommends that the job be left to professionals.
Inks’ company provides a two-year warranty against the return of streaks and offers extended maintenance contracts. It also can clean slate and tile roofs.
If you are thinking of putting on a new roof, you can try to eliminate the need for this chore by requesting that your contractor install algae-resistant shingles.

TECHNICAL BULLETIN

What you should know about cleaning your roof.
DON’T REPLACE IT..CLEAN IT!!

Your house is most likely your biggest investment and your roof is one of the most expensive parts of your house. It is extremely important to have the utmost in confidence in your decision before hiring a qualified roof cleaning contractor.

Certified Roof Cleaning Institute of America roof cleaning contractors only use chemicals approved by the ARMA* Asphalt Roofing Manufacturers Association and do not use pressure on your shingles. RCIA roof cleaning contractors also provide our customers with technical bulletins directly from Asphaltroofing.org and shingle manufacturers to prove that our procedures and chemicals are properly formulated for roof cleaning. Our chemicals provide enough cleaning power to remove all mold, mildew, and streaks…without pressure washing or heavy rinsing.

We 100% guarantee your roof will look brand new!

Pressure washing is never recommended because it will remove a large amount of the ceramic coated granules from your shingles, which will void the warranty. Even low pressure will cause granule loss and shorten the life of your shingles. If you have ever cleaned out the inside of your gutters you will notice granules in them just from the rain taking them off. Think what any additional pressure would do to your roof. For instance, you see someone cleaning a roof with pressure and it appears they have done a good job just because the streaks and discoloration are gone, but guess what? So is a large amount of the protective ceramic coated granules which insure your shingle’s warranty. Nobody wants to replace a prematurely failed roof due to an incompetent roof cleaning contractor, and you shouldn’t have to.

We offer a ____ year warranty against any streaks reappearing on your shingles.

Always use a ‘chemical only’ cleaning process for your roof. Roof cleaning is a completely different trade from pressure washing requiring different pumps, plumbing, hoses, nozzles, valves, chemicals, caution, knowledge, experience, skill, and insurance. The certified RCIA roof cleaners have all of the necessary tools, and have learned from the best roof cleaning professionals in the country.

Make sure you know what kind of chemicals are being applied on your property. Do not accept “it’s biodegradable” for an answer. Even uranium is biodegradable over 50,000 years or so.

Because many “competitors” lack our roof cleaning equipment, knowledge, training, and experience, they sometimes apply a dangerously strong chemical solution. Sodium Hydroxide and Potassium Hydroxide will dissolve the asphalt and tar on your roof, shortening the life of your shingles and voiding the roof’s warranty. Even sodium metasilicate is too corrosive.

Our chemicals do all of the work to remove streaks and discoloration from your roof and require no pressure or heavy rinsing. Because we do not have to rinse, your roof will stay cleaner longer than our competitors. Leaving the chemicals on the roof creates a roof treatment or a hostile environment for future algae growth. Each time it rains, a small amount of chemical is washed off to help re-clean your roof over and over again.

Concerned about your plants, pets, and landscaping?

We only spray the roof, not your plants. We always bag the ends of your downspouts, collect all the chemical run-off from the roof and dispose of them away from your landscaping. If the roof does not have gutters we will thoroughly dilute the roof cleaning chemical down to safe levels by spraying the landscaping with water before, during, and after applying chemical. After the chemical biodegrades and evaporates from the roof, the dried crystals and surfactant act as a roof treatment to keep the roof cleaner longer as it rains.

We have had to go behind many competitors who pressure wash or rinse their customers roofs, which start growing mold and streaks after only 1 year.

We guarantee our roof cleaning will outlast our competitors!

The price of cleaning your roof vs. replacing it, averages 1/10 the cost!

IT DOESN’T COST, IT PAYS TO CLEAN YOUR ROOF!

SAVE YOURSELF $$ THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS $$ !!!

Roof Shingle Cleaning Tampa FL

If you see that there are black streaks on your Tampa roof then it is a sure sign of algae formation on the roof shingles. It only means that the asphalt shingles have been invaded by roof algae and you need to treat it properly, otherwise your tampa asphalt shingle roof will appear very dirty and stained. It will mar the entire look of your house.
The fiberglass roofing shingles have sufficient moisture and environment which is conductive to the breeding of roof algae. Thus they breed really fast in the roof shingles.
You need to clean the asphalt roof shingles with roof cleaning chemicals which are specially formulated for it. Many Tampa house owners install copper shingles. They like the rich stately look of the copper shingles. The copper shingles do look great and marvelous when they are newly installed but they need maintenance. With the passage of time the natural elements play their role and the shingles appear dull and blackish or what we may also call “ugly”. It is very time consuming and tedious to clean and polish the copper shingles. You are not a roof cleaning professional and this job is not meant for you. You must always call a roof cleaning professional to clean the copper shingles. If you have spent a fortune getting copper shingles installed do spend a small amount in maintaining them too otherwise the fortune that you spent getting them installed will be a total waste!

Asphalt roofs across Tampa FL are being infested by a dark green algae (commonly considered black mold or Mildew). The technical term for the algae is Gloeocapsa Magma.
Gloeocapsa Magma Algae Mold or Gren Mildew is spread by wind and animals, and grows from a dot to a spot to a streak. As a Gloeocapsa Magma Algae Green Mildew colony grows, older algae decompose and will hold moisture, which enables the entire colony to grow even more rapidly. Many times a Tampa homeowner will just notice a spot, and in no time, half the asphalt roof shingles are covered.
Luckily, the Gloeocapsa Magma Algae Mildew can be removed with professional Tampa roof algae cleaning service .
Because the algae is spread by the wind, annual roof shingle care and prevention is needed in Tampa to prevent the Gloeocapsa Magma Algae Mildew from returning to your Tampa Roof.

In many areas across Florida roof algae (Gloeocapsa Magma) is a growing problem. The algae thrives in warm humid climates like Tampa’s, usually first appearing on the north facing slopes of your roof where the right amount of shade and moisture are common. With the proper atmosphere in Tampa the algae only needs one more element to survive and that’s food.

Black Roof algae feeds on the crushed limestone that is used in the manufacturing of asphalt shingles. When shingles were first produced manufacturers quickly realized they were to light and would not provide adequate protection, so they added crushed limestone to the asphalt to add weight and durability to the shingles.

Gloeocapsa Magma is an airborne algae so it can land on any roof with no rhyme or reason, though it does seem to be more prominent in areas holding a lot of trees. Once the roof algae lands on the roof it will have to be killed and removed properly or it will continue to spread.
It will never get better or just go away on its own. The roof algae begins feeding on the nutrients in the shingles.
When it rains it is spread down the roof causing black streaks. If not taken care of it will take over the entire roof in a few short years turning the whole roof black!
