The black streaks that you may see in some roofs or sidings are also known as black algae or roof mold. Technically, the black streaks on roofs are a form of algae known as Gloeocapsa Magma (blue-green algae). As you can already imagine, this is not safe nor pretty for your home. This algae is typical in many homes that are located in humid areas, such as Maryland, D.C., and Virginia. Although accumulations of dirt, defective shingles, mold, or mildew can cause black streaks, the most common factor is the blue-green algae. Unfortunately, algae travels through the air, so if one neighbor receives a few spores, the whole neighborhood will soon be sporting the black streaks. Affordable SoftWash Solutions can take of this problem for you and provide affordable and reasonable solutions for your home and neighborhood. Give us a call today!
