    Roof Chemicals for Black Streaks

    Hi, I'd say I'm fairly new to the business and was told Pressure Tek has all the equipment and chemicals I need to get going with my roof cleaning.
    Here in Swartz Creek, MI (in general, Flint and the surrounding areas) we seem to deal with mainly the black streaks rather than a lot of the mosses and other things that I've seen many companies handle. I've searched the PT site high and low and I haven't seem to have found the right chemical to clean those black streaks from roofs. I see all the F-# products like the Gutter Grenade and Simple Cherry house wash but none seem to be for roofs.

    I was also told that a 12.5% sod chloride mixture was the best way to go. (Still kind of confused with the whole mixture process)

    Does anyone know what I should be looking for?

    Also, I know of products like Roof Reviver and Roof Ox. Has anyone tried either of these and how well do they work? (Roof Ox apparently can be applied pressure-less)

    Thanks,
    Stephen

    Search for Apple sauce and apple cider mix. You will use 12.5 % sodium hypochlorite

    feed your goat two scoops of simple cherry to add a little boost to your mix :thumbsup:

    I use a mop and a bucket of Mr. Clean. Be careful as it gets really slippery.

    Hey "Squirtgun", I never meant to offend you and turn you into an asshole. It is my right to ask questions whether or not someone has always asked or answered the ones I may have, that's why this forum is here.

    I have looked and I saw many people talk about the sodium chlorite deal but I had not found something that completely solved my problem therefore I turned to making my own thread. "Muntonfire"'s post talking about the Apple Cider WAS a huge help to me, so respectfully piss off.

    P.S: I would hate to see how bent out of shape you would be if something really important happened.

    Have a good one,
    Stephen
