I've always wondered about this. Thanks Family Handyman!

Sorry, meant to say QSE 3000. Just a typo

Inquired a friend that had the same thing and said he used QSO3000 from cleanertoday dot com. I bought the kit for about 100 bucks and it worked like a charm. At first it didn't seem to have cleaned it enough, but after a few rain falls, looks like new

The streaks become more noticeable depending on pollution in the area. I would NEVER hire anyone to clean my roof. The use of bleach [toxic to vegetation around home] will rapidly age the shingles, also it's applied with a pressure washer. A pressure washer will remove the gravel on the shingles & take years off the shingles. Dark shingles don't show the streaking neither does a tin roof.

The zinc and copper stripes works to an extent. The problem with this is that it only works the first 5 - 7 feet generally. You could string copper wire in intervals across the roof.

There are also many professional roof cleaning companies that use a bleach to water solution to clean black streaks from roofs. Hope this helps anyone who has questions regarding this. Garret

I've never heard of this before, but love this idea.
We have a cistern in which the water supplies our showers, toilets and washing machine. Is this a still safe "black streak" preventative?
