What makes up roof stains?
Roof Stains are actually huge colonies of Algae, Lichen, Moss,
mildew and mold, typically over 1 million algae cells. The algae colony
is so large that it becomes visible from the ground. When the roof
algae colony starts growing there are not enough algae to be seen from
the ground. But between 15 and 24 months the colony becomes large
enough to be seen from the ground, The streaks and discoloration is an
accumulation of the algae's dead, dark-colored cells. While this roof
stain can grow just about anywhere in the continental U.S.A., it
prefers humid environments. and we call it a roof stain.

and all of the built up roof algae thus restoring your roof to a
'clean' condition. it will also help keep power bills lower as a clean
roof reflects the sun's rays and keeps the underside of roof cooler.
But shortly after you clean, the wind and animals can spread the algae
back onto your roof, where it will once again start to grow. until the
colony once again becomes large.
