Why have my roof cleaned?
Accumulation of dirt and moss on roof tiles and other organic growth may cause serious problems with your roof and the life-span of the tiles will over time be compromised too. If you neglect your roof, you’ll find these organic growths will rapidly spread out of control with their roots working their way into vulnerable spots in the tiles of the roof, gradually widening them over the course of time until cracks appear. Like all plants they need water to survive, and when it rains, they’ll act like a sponge holding as much water as they possibly can. Once it finds its way through the cracks into your roof it might well cause serious and costly damage to the rafters and joists. Lastly you could well become aware of moss that has come loose and rolled down the roof into your gutter which in time can lead to overflowing rainwater from your gutter which saturates and damages your fascia boards. Really then, arranging to have the roof cleaned is an important service for a few reasons.
For many people though getting their roof cleaned is simply an aesthetic choice and we can’t fault you for that! Roofs can become very unsightly due to organic growths like lichen and moss, and then a roof cleaning company is needed. Roofs are also often tarnished and stained by an everyday bacterium called gloeocapsa magma affecting the natural appearance of your otherwise beautiful home. Without a doubt, this bacteria growth is completely normal however it isn’t nice to see and gradually it can damage your roof. Comparing a clean roof and one that needs cleaning can be night and day. After months and years of seeing your roof get more and more dirty wouldn’t it be great to see it looking like brand new like it used to?
Maybe you’re wondering, “Is this a simple DIY job that I should have a go at doing myself?” Let’s look at some evidence to suggest what the best way to do this is.
Can I just clean it myself?
The biggest reason why most people haven’t attempted to clean their own roof is because it requires working at a height where most of us wouldn’t feel comfortable or safe. At these kinds of heights any kind of fall can result in a very serious injury.
A service like this requires a degree of skill and care that we can assure. Using the correct roof access equipment, the right tools and our skill and know-how we can provide for you a roof cleaning service that pleases you without you needing to put yourself in unnecessary danger.
What is the process?
We will inspect your roof with care and attention before starting any work, to establish the best course of action depending on your roof. Then we will look at what’s growing there and the how best to remove the growth. We can then start to work on eradicating the roof of organic colonising growths by getting right into the root system of the moss and eliminating the spores. You’ll notice an improvement straight away and continued change as time passes.
Some things to consider
