We’ve all seen it; that nasty green/black algae that can invade the exterior areas of our homes.
It’s generally on the sides that are in the shade and hold moisture.
The longer it sits on your home or building, the harder it is to permanently remove it and the longer it sits on your home, the more damage it does.
Algae thrive in damp and shady areas, so they grow on shingles or on the siding that doesn’t see much sunlight.
It can cause your shingles and siding to deteriorate and rot.
In humid weather, check gutters as they can grow in there as well.
Using soap and water can remove newer algae but you need a stronger cleaner to get rid of the older.
While many chemical cleaners will work (with a lot of work on your part), the best and often easiest way, is to have a professional come and take care of the issue.
Do a bi-annual check of your roof and siding to ensure that there aren’t any algae or mold hanging out on your home or building.
It’s annoying to look at and it can be damaging to your property and decrease the value.
