Cleaning Black Roof Stains

Why your roof shingles or tiles are turning BLACK?
Remember the first time you looked up at your roof in Tampa and noticed those black stains appearing on your shingles? This is quite a common occurrence  in Tampa Florida. Even on a roof with (so-called) Algae resistant shingles, the Mildew protection can begin to fail in as little as 1-2 years. In Tampa Florida's hot and humid climate, Mildew and Algae will grow on your roof shingles and tiles, leaving black stains that spread across the entire shingle or tile roof unless treated.

 CAN A PROPERLY CLEANED TILE OR SHINGLE ROOF SAVE YOU MONEY ON A/C BILLS?
Besides making your home look old and unsightly, research has discovered that Roof Algae 
in Tampa could actually be costing you quite a bit of money. Black Algae growth causes temperatures under your shingle or tile roof to become higher.  Your air conditioning will run more often and this can shorten its life span. A/C Studies in Tampa have revealed a reduction of under-roof temperatures as much as 10 degrees or more, once the Black Algae has been removed. By lowering your attic temperature, your air conditioner can run more efficiently. With as a little as a 3-4 degree temperature reduction in your home, there could be a significant reduction in your electric bill. 
HOW ROOF ALGAE STEALS YOUR SHINGLE ROOFS' LIFE.
  Black Algae staining increases surface temperatures that cause your roof to dry out prematurely, thus increasing granule loss as well. Algae spores require three things to grow: heat, moisture and nutrients (all of which are abundant here
in Tampa Florida). Your asphalt shingle roof is a perfect breeding ground for this living organism. It feeds on the organic matter contained in asphalt roofing shingles  in Tampa and eventually it destroys them. In short, dark colors on your roof  in Tampa absorb MUCH MORE HEAT!

SO, HOW DO YOU GET RID OF THE BLACK ROOF STAINS
Although cleaning your roof 
in Tampa with  Pressure Washing might temporarily eliminate most of the visible algae, most of the Mold remains embedded in the shingles, to quickly cause future problems. In addition, Pressure Washing will damage your asphalt  shingles, causing granule loss and shortening the life of your roofing shingles. Keep in mind, the granules on your asphalt shingles are the sources of not only the color of your roof in Tampa, but also your heat-reflective protection. Asphalt Shingle Granule loss should be avoided.

THE BEST WAY TO CLEAN BLACK STREAKS FROM YOUR ROOF IN TAMPA
 We at  Apple Roof Cleaning feel the best way to treat this Roof Algae Stain problem is to secure the services of a professional roof cleaning company
in Tampa. However, not all roof cleaning companies in Tampa are the same. Many are handymen, pressure washers, painters, and grass cutters who clean roofs  in Tampa as one of many things they do. Just as you would not expect the best Chicken Sandwich from a Burger Place, why would you expect the best roof cleaning from a company who are not  roof cleaning specialists. Not only are we roof cleaning experts, we are also nationally known teachers of roof cleaning. Click the Certified Roof Cleaning Badge on this Blog, and see for yourself. Apple Roof Cleaning is the company other roof cleaners look to for training and leadership.
