Roof and Siding Cleaning in Naperville Illinois DuPage County


A lot of people think that the streaks and stains on a roof are an indication that the shingles are old and need to be replaced. Or they wrongly believe that they are caused by creosote seeping out of the shingles, jet fuel dirt or acid rain. The truth of the matter is that air born algae (mold) lands on the roof and feeds on the material in the asphalt shingles. The technical name for the algae is Gloeocapsa Magma. It grows mostly on the north and west facing roofs which receives the prevailing moisture and shade. The dense areas of the algae communities are evident by the black streaks and ugly stains which are a protective sheathing that the algae excrete. This home located in Naperville, IL was infested with roof mold. Much to the owner’s excitement  we eradicated all the roof mold and cleaned away the streaks and stains. Best of all the cost was a mere fraction of what a new roof would have cost saving the owners thousands of dollars in the long run.
