Eagle Wash Roof Cleaning
Roof Bacterias & Infections
Everything you need to know about your roof.
Your roof, home and surroundings need to be safeguarded against the possible health issues that can come from mildew, algae, fungus and bacteria. Starting from your roof, many areas can be effected by these microbials. Every time it rains, every morning dew, the fungus on your roof drips down spores onto sidewalks, driveways, decks, walls and more. These spores then attach and grow new colonies. These colonies are then transported into your home by foot traffic, pets and by air itself.
Sick Building Syndrome
Another condition where algae and molds are problematic. HVAC systems suck in air from their intakes on top of roofs on commercial buildings. It is very common for even hospitals to have these intakes on top of roofs that have flat roof decks that are infested with algae, mold, mildew and bacteria.
These microbials blast seeds or spores into the air that are collected by these intakes and distributed throughout the building. Then any moist warm area will begin to produce colonies.
Caused by an airborne bacteria called Gram negative, aerobic bacteria belonging to the genus Legionella.Legionnaires' disease though not directly attributed to roof and exterior stains can be found in HVAC systems, water fountains, ice machines and other areas that hold moisture and cultivate mold and fungal growth.
Legionnaires' disease is a prime example of how illness can be created from environments that harbor mold, mildew, algae and bacteria
Algae are weeds
Algae are like weeds, actually like tiny plants. They have roots, they have what are like leaves, they even have flowers “blooms”. Algae even can go through photosynthesis like a plant taking in carbondioxide, creating food and giving off oxygen. So for educational purposes using a weed as an example of how algae is completely removed is good. You must use a chemical that will kill the entire plant.
Algae, mold, mildew, bacteria, etc. are well known culprits when it comes to allergies. In fact, they top the list of known allergy irritants. May people suffer from allergies and look everywhere for relief. Many times they have no idea that the stains growing on and around their home are contributing to their illness
Weeds have roots and can grow in the most obscure places. To effectively kill the weed you must break it’s hold on the surface. You must penetrate all the way to the root. To rid the surface of that weed you must achive a 100% kill ratio. All of this applies to algae, mildew, fungus, lichen and bacteria growing on roofs and exteriors as well
