Where are these black algae stains coming from?
Invasive Species, Acid Rain, New Diseases/Viruses/Bacteria, Poor Quality Building Materials, Pollution, Global Warming……You name it, the answer is yes. Our environment has been subject to the biggest change it has ever seen on side a wide range of fronts. The Nitrogen cycle as well as different levels of CO2, O2 have always effected the growth patterns of Alga and Cyanobacteria. Human intervention has removed many natural wetlands and greatly effected the water table over the last 100 years. We have also introduced a variety of building materials that the environment has never seen before.
Life adapts very quickly at the microscopic level and with all the shipping we do these days it is no wonder that we see different diseases and bacteria from other parts of the world. These microorganisms when introduced into different ecosystems either die off lay dormant or adapt. The unsettling issue is that they usually upset the ecosystem to which they are newly introduced.
Take the Emerald Ash Borer for example: Most likely due to shipments of wooden pallets from China that were not kiln dried, the Emerald Ash Borer has decimated estimates of over 100 million trees in North America. Another example is the Aisian Carp. This fish has been filling the rivers of the East Coast for the last decade, jumping up to 10 feet in the air every time a boat passes them. These introductions destroy and offset the natural food sources for plants and animals.
The snowball effect from so many different environmental changes at once lays havoc on the microbiological balance that starts the food chain. This, of course, even effects the diseases and bacteria which infect and break down other living creatures. A fungus called “White Nose Syndrome” has killed an enormous portion of the American Bat population. This could have a devastating effect on our agriculture industry. Bats are a very important element in natures pest control, they help by feeding on insects that may eat crops.
Pesticides will not only be have to be used more because of lack of healthy bat popluation but they are one of the causes of the catastrophic loss of Honey Bees in the US. Though the Honey bee problem has been associated to many different factors in addition to pesticides such as disease, poor nutrition and even scientific claims of cell phone radiation. If we lose too much of the bee population this will have an enormous impact on so many levels.
There is no wonder why we see more Algae/Cyanobacteria growing on buildings faster than ever before. This recent advancement is due largely to shipping, building materials and temperature change. Roofing Shingles may be the most evident for some but algae is growing on everything, especially things facing North from the least amount of exposure to the sun. These microbiological growths must be maintained on your home because they can quickly destroy the exterior of your house and are very unsightly. Fortunately Trinity Roof and Exterior Roof Cleaning has a cure for every one of your exterior cleaning needs.
Spring is almost here and that means that these stains are going to get worse. In fact in a recent study, scientists show how our warm winters and early springs can be triggered by neighboring city’s. Check out this article. This also greatly effects the growth of Algae and Cyanobacteria on building materials.

Roof Stains range from a variety of different microbiological growths and unsightly stains. Most of these “Dirty Roofs” have black streaks which are cyannobacteria. The bacteria imbed themselves deep into your roofing shingles and are very tough to remove without destroying the shingle so cleaning must be done by a professional. Because these roof stains are black they attract UV rays from the sun and raise the temperature of your home. When you have your roof cleaned you should notice a drop in energy costs during the air conditioning months especially if you have a roof which has an abundance of black roof stains, a.k.a. “Dirty Roof”.
