Why the Need for Roof Cleaning Services
Cleaning a roof, solves problematic roof problems for home owners. Removing ongoing problems of lichen and moss usually prevalent on one side of a building.
Mould outbreaks as shown in this picture can destroy the aesthetic of your house. Once the outbreak has set in, unless treated they will continuously worsen. The roof becomes dirtier just from atmospheric particles settling on the mould. This seems to feed the mould accelerating its growth
Of course the result is a series of stains which spreads all over the roof space and continues on down the outside of your blockwork and into other various nooks and crannies. This will eventually degrade and damage your roofing materials and require further costly maintenance in the future.
Which Chemical Treatment is Best?
To treat lichen and moss outbreaks, there are a number of options available to our cleaning experts.
In the first phase of cleaning we use chemical applications to target those organisms. The use of these chemicals will help to permanently destroy these organisms and will have a noticeable effect on the appearance of the roof. The chemicals we use are safe.
Some common treatments with chemical include the use of bleach. However, you must be careful when employing bleach as a cleansing agent as it is not always suited to every roof material. Ideally the use of eco-friendly treatments if preferable including biodegradable products for the waste component.
Cleaning with High Pressure
When it comes to cleaning tiles, particularly hard tiles like ceramics, a form of high pressure water cleaning is utilised. It is a quick and easy way to remove all dirt and growth from the surface of your roof.
This will achieve great results with minimal outlay of effort. On the other hand, some types of roof surfaces may be susceptible to high pressure jets as its quite powerful and can lead to damage to your roof.
