Is That Black Stuff On My Roof Really Not Dirt?

As a leading choice for pressure washing, we get asked this a lot, and it's essential to know. Many homeowners don't realize the black streaks on their roofs aren't caused by dirt but by a form of blue-green algae called Gloeocapsa magma. It feeds off of the limestone found on asphalt shingles and worsens over time. While the algae may not damage your shingles, it tarnishes your roof's appearance, and the blackening causes your roof to heat up, which increases your cooling bills. Routine maintenance, including roof cleaning, is vital to prevent this.

I Have Old, Set In Stains. Does Your Service Clean Those Up?

At Crystal Clean Pressure Washing, we do our best to work our magic and provide you with the best level of cleaning for superior results, including dealing with stubborn stains. In instances when stain removal isn't entirely possible, we're able to diminish the appearance of these permanent marks significantly, so they're unnoticeable.

What's The Difference Between Your Services And Me Just Buying A DIY Pressure Washer?

For starters, it's always better to leave potentially dangerous work to trained, experienced, licensed, and insured professionals. DIY pressure washing comes with an elevated risk of injury and property damage. The grade of equipment we use is industrial and able to get better results. For instances that call for something less abrasive, we're able to switch to soft washing for safe but effective cleaning. The outcome of our work will be more thorough, and you'll be more satisfied with our professional results.
