Does the roof at your home or business have black streaks, lichen or moss?
If so it can be safely cleaned and removed making your roof look new again and extending its life. The black streaks are called Gloeocapsa Magma, an algae that is feeding off the limestone granules on your roof and deteriorating the shingles. We use the only cleaning method that shingle manufacturers recommend to clean and kill the organisms that are causing this. High pressure is not used on your roof, so it will not cause any damage. Not only will you have a roof that looks new, you will have reduced cooling costs. By removing the black streaks, it allows the shingles to reflect the sunlight and heat as they were designed.
Eco-Pro specializes in NO pressure “Soft Wash” Roof Cleaning. Soft washing is the only method of roof cleaning approved by ARMA (asphalt roofing manufactures association) and the manufacturer of YOUR roof shingles.
The use of a pressure washer should never be allowed on your roof! Even if someone claims they know what they’re doing, or say the pressure is turned way down, it will still result in unnecessary granule loss. Not to mention that you will see the algae return faster with the pressure washing method vs our soft washing method! If you value the longevity of your roof, avoid pressure washing at all cost and simply call Eco Pro today.

Lichens plague asphalt roofs all over New Hampshire and Massachusetts. They are mostly found on the north side of roofs and under shady trees. Lichens are one of the most damaging things to have on your shingle roof. They feed off the limestone granules they make up the exterior composition and quickly deteriorate your shingles. Lichens should be treated at first sign to minimize the damage to your roof system.
Roof moss grows extremely well in New England climates. Not only is it unsightly but very destructive to your asphalt shingles. Besides Lichen, moss is the hardest growth to remove form your shingles and should be treated at its first sign.
