Solving the Mystery of Black Streaks

Roof Washing Apple Valley MN

You know that roof cleaning is a service you should schedule for your home regularly. But do you know why?

It all boils down to one primary issue: black streaks.

What are they?

Black streaks describe how the eyesore looks, but it doesn’t shed any light on what they actually are.

So many clients are surprised when we explain that those black streaks on your roof are actually alive. They are the result of Gloeocapsa Magma, a type of bacteria that feeds on your roofing composite.

Why should I care?

Valid question – and a compelling answer. Black streaks actively destroy your roofing. They trigger problems like:

  • Roof deterioration
    As gloeocapsa magma grows on your roofing, it actively degrades the quality of your roofing.
  • Poor heat deflection
    Roof wear and tear make your shingles unable to perform one of their core functions: to keep excess heat out.
  • Premature roof replacement
    If your roof doesn’t have the basic quality it needs, it fails. And that means a costly replacement.

A Step Up Pressure Washing supports your property from the top down with our roof cleaning solution. Ban the black streaks and reclaim your property value!
