For most people, their home is their largest investment. Over time, dirt, algae, grime, mold and mildew build up and cause unsightly streaking and discoloration on and around the home. The roof, sides of the house, driveway, sidewalk, patio, deck, and fence are all susceptible. The buildup that occurs on the ground level surfaces can be potentially slippery and dangerous. The buildup that occurs on the roof (commonly referred to as roof algae) and sides of the home not only causes roof stains but can actually cause damage leading to thousands of dollars in home repairs. According to a Consumer Reports 'Tip of the Day' from November 20, 2009: "one plant life you don't want to see on your roof is Gloeocapsa magma, a blackish algae that thrives on moisture seems to have an affinity for material used in some roofing products. When left unchecked, it can damage shingles. This algae creeps its way upward on roofs, gradually turning shingles dark brown or black. It's easy to spot along some east-west streets with lots of trees, and sometimes it's present house after house."
Power washing, pressure washing and soft washing can remove these build ups. Routine maintenance such as this maintains the appearance of the home and extends the lifespan of shingles, siding and other components that deteriorate over time. For the nominal expense of this maintenance, property owners avoid the significant costs of more frequent repair and replacement.
Some property owners in other parts of the country are actually receiving notices from their insurance companies threatening to cancel their home policy due to the algae/fungus that is growing on the roof. This video shows a homeowner that received one of the letters.
