Find a Roof Cleaner
Welcome Property Owners and Property Managers
Finding a professional roof cleaner isn't as easy as it might seem. Many roofing contractors list themselves in directories and in search engines as "roof cleaners" just for potential roof replacement sales. There are also several gimmick cleaning products that require a pressure washer to remove the stains. Using a pressure washer on your roof can cause damage and void your roof warranty.

Many homeowners are confused as to what is causing the black stains on the roof. We've heard all sorts of names used to describe the roof staining such as roof algae, roof mold, roof mildew. Perhaps the strangest explanation for the black stains on shingles is jet exhaust.
The technical identification is that it's a bacteria (Cyanobacteria)
Species: G. magma
Gloeocapsa magma may resemble "algae" in that they are green, but in fact cyanobacteria are bacteria whereas algae are single-celled eukaryotes (cells with nuclei).
The common term most used is that it's an algae. This algae feeds on moisture and the calcium carbonate in your shingles. The dark stains are caused by the outer shell formed to protect the algae from the UV rays.
