What are those black streaks on my roof?

Those ugly black streaks on your roof are caused by the “excrement” of an airborne algae called gloeocapsa magma. This algae is spread by wind and animals. If you start looking at the north side of your neighbors roofs, you will notice that you are not the only one who’s roof is infested by a Gloeocapsa Magma Algae colony! You may have noticed there was a dark spot on your roof before, and now it has grown into large black streaks all over your roof. That’s because the algae feeds on moisture and calcium carbonate, which is present in asphalt shingles.
This algae can cause significant destruction to your roof by decaying the singles. We all know that moisture and mold is bad pretty much anywhere in your house. It’s just as bad on your roof! Over time, Gloeocapsa magma breaks down the shingles by feeding off of the limestone granules embedded in the shingles. This shortens the life of the roof.

How is it removed?

Having the black stains, mildew, moss, and mold professional cleaned will save you from premature shingle replacement.  At Indyres, we apply a specially formulated cleaning solution that includes Sodium Hypochlorite (active ingredient in most cleaning solutions, and an algaecide/fungicide to prevent algae, mildew, mold, and moss from returning to your roof.   Our “soft wash” roof cleaning process is recommended by the leading shingle manufacturers (ARMA)  for roof cleaning and maintenance.  Indyres backs this with our 5 Year Roof Cleaning Warranty.  Never let any power wash or pressure clean your roof as this will damage your shingles, render them ineffective, and void their warranty.

What are the benefits of having my roof cleaned?

How long will it take?

Why should I have my roof cleaned?

Having the mold, moss, and mildew roof stains removed from your shingles is a simple way to maintain and improve the beauty of your home.  Gloeocapsa magma, mold, and moss growth will retain water and dampness which will prematurely age and rot your shingles shortening their intended life cycle.  Left untreated the granules on your shingles will become less reflective, dislodge, and increase your energy costs as your shingles lose their effectiveness due to these roof stains.

Does having a dirty roof devalue my home?

Believe it or not, yes. Insurance companies are cracking down on homeowners with dirty roofs. We have customers who were unable to sell their homes until their roofs were cleaned, as the home was unable to pass inspection. Just check out this news report.
