Roof washing is not only a great way to brighten the exterior of your home, but also a great way to add years to your roof’s life span. If you are located here in the Houston and surrounding areas, then you’ve seen black streaks and stains on your roof or the roofs around you. These black stains and streaks are caused by what is called Gloeocapsa Magma. Gloeocapsa Magma is a species of bacteria that photolyzes water creating oxygen gas, it may resemble algae, but is in fact a bacteria. This bacteria thrives in humid environments where moisture is kept locked in. The necessary nutrients needed for gloeocapsa magma colony growth comes from limestone which, ironically enough, is used as filler in roof shingles for support and strength. Thus, making our Houston, Katy, Sugar Land, Spring and surrounding area roofs a perfect place for this bacteria to thrive. Between our humidity and moisture filled air, build up like pine needles, mold, mildew, algae, dirt, dust, debris and other contaminants retaining moisture on our roofs, it’s the perfect storm. This being said, maintaining a clean roof is a necessity when it comes to preserving the life of your roof. If this bacteria is left untreated it can eat away and weaken your roof. This will then cause the need for a pre-mature and more costly roof repair or replacement. This is why choosing HOUSE SPA for your roof cleaning is so important.
