Algae Stains on Roof

What You'll Need:


Add the Stain Solver powder to the warm water. Stir until completely dissolved. Use to clean black or green algae from roofs. Apply solution liberally with the pump sprayer to a cool roof surface on a cloudy day or in the shade. Let soak for 20 minutes, never allowing the solution to evaporate. Scrub with a push broom. Rinse the clean roof off with a garden hose. Test on a small area to see how easy it is to use before attempting large areas. Roofs wet with this solution are slippery and very dangerous. Be extremely careful so as not to fall.
