Those ugly black streaks that appear on your roof are much more than just an eye sore to the neighborhood. The black streaks that are seen on roof tops is a bacteria known as gloeocapsa-magma. This algae is spread by wind and animals. According to an article on Shop Clean Today, "Many times a homeowner will just notice a spot, and in no time, half the asphalt roof shingles are covered. Increased moisture levels lead to the growth of lichen, mold and even moss." (Shopcleanertoday.com)

There are certainly benefits to cleaning your roof, such as keeping your homes curb appeal looking clean, improving your homes efficiency, keeps your homes gutters clog free and helps to prevent safety risks. Most importantly this will increase the lifespan of your roof.
Algae is a living organism that thrives on dust, pollen, and the organic materials that make up the roof. Dampness triggers its growth. Stains are usually more prominent on northern and western exposures and in heavily shaded areas. Algae grows on, under, and behind the tiny granules that cover the shingles and can harbor a number of molds. This results in unsightly stains and streaks on the roof. Roofs with algae stains absorb heat rather than reflect it, resulting in a super-heated attic and higher home cooling costs as well as reducing the natural life span of the shingles.
Thick moss growth with its shallow root system keeps the roofing materials damp for extended periods of time. This moisture promotes wood rot and causes erosion of the shingles. Moss typically starts to grow at the top of the vertical slots between the shingles. These areas of asphalt shingles are the last place water evaporates from a roof. Moss, like lichen colonies, is quite damaging to shingles and some of the granules underneath the moss may already be gone as a result of this organism.
Lichens are a fungus, usually of the class Ascomycetes, that grow symbiotically with algae, resulting in a composite organism that characteristically forms a crust-like or branching growth on shingle granules. Lichens put out root-like tentacles that penetrate deep into the shingle’s organic, oil base for nourishment, eventually ruining them by creating dark spots, or pock marks where they grow.
