Roof Cleaning Brandon FL

Roof Cleaning Brandon FL

What are those stains on my Brandon FL roof?

Those dark stains or black streaks on your Brandon FL roof are algae. The scientific name for this type of air borne algae is Gloeocapsa Magma.
Gloeocapsa Magma is found in warm humid environments like here in Brandon FL, and often appears on the North side of the home and under trees. The reason that it is usually seen on the North side of the home is because the north side gets the least amount of sun which causes this area stay wet longer than the others. Gloeocapsa Magma also grows under trees in Brandon FL because of the shade and the fact that when trees drip water after it rains, it keeps the roof surface wet longer.

Can these stains be removed from my Brandon FL Roof?

Ugly stains on your roof can be removed fast, easily, safely, and affordably.
Apple Roof Cleaning can make your Brandon FL roof look new again for a small faction of the cost of re- roofing you house. Don’t replace your roof because it’s dirty, just have Apple Roof Cleaning Brandon FL clean it.

Will this algae harm my Brandon FL roof?

Yes, if left untreated, over time the algae growth can cause your shingles to lose granules.  Leaks may occur, which will result in premature roof replacement of your Brandon FL roof.  With proper maintenance such as non pressure roof cleaning, it should last at least as long as the roof warranty period.
