Roof Cleaning Hyson Green offers a professional roof cleaning service for residential and business premises in Hyson Green and surrounding villages/towns in Nottinghamshire. Having your roof cleaned can be a relatively speedy way to improve the look of your home, by clearing moss and anything else that has built up up there.
As roofs become older and become more porous, many become invaded by moss and dirt. Keeping the roof clean and without moss and dirt is often very difficult for many owners and may become a annoyance.
Would it not be great to have your roof looking like new again?
Why do it?
A large accumulation of moss, dirt on your roof and other organic growth may cause you big problems with your roof and the durability of the tiles will in time be affected too. If you neglect your roof, you’ll find these organic growths will swiftly grow out of control with their roots creeping their way into weaknesses in the roof tiles, gradually widening them over time until cracks become visible. Like all living organisms they need water to survive, and once it has rained, they’ll work like a sponge retaining as much water as they can. Once it finds its way through the cracks into your roof it may well cause serious and costly destruction to the rafters and joists. Finally you could well discover moss that has come loose and rolled down the roof finding itself in your gutter which in time can lead to overflowing rainwater from your gutter which saturates and damages your fascia’s. Really then, getting a roof cleaned is a required job for many reasons.
For many people though cleaning their roof is simply an aesthetic preference and we don’t blame you for that! Roofs can become very unattractive because of organic growths like lichen and moss, and at that point a roof cleaning service is needed. Roofs are also frequently discoloured and stained by a prevalent bacterium called gloeocapsa magma affecting the natural appearance of your otherwise beautiful house. Of course, this bacteria growth is completely natural but after all it isn’t attractive to look at and after a while it can damage your roof. The difference between a clean roof and one that needs cleaning can be night and day. After years of seeing your roof get more and more dirty wouldn’t it be lovely to see it looking as good as new once more?
The next question is, “Is this a easy DIY job that I should attempt to do myself?” Let’s consider some evidence to suggest what the best possible solution is here.
Could I just do this alone?
The biggest reason why a lot of people don’t clean their own roof is since it usually means working at a height where many of us wouldn’t feel safe or comfortable. At these kinds of heights any sort of tumble can result in a very serious wound.
Many rogue companies who carry out this kind of work, think it is easy money and that it does not require any skill. Is there any truth in that? A job like this requires a level of skill and attention that we can deliver. Using the appropriate roof access equipment, the right tools and our experience and know-how we can provide for you a roof cleaning service that is worthwhile without you having to put yourself at needless risk.
How is it done?
We will investigate the roof with care and attention before starting any work, to identify the best course of action depending on your roof. Then we will consider what’s growing there and the best approach to take to dislodge the growth. Then we can begin to work on eradicating the roof of organic colonising growths by getting deep into the moss root system and destroying the spores. You’ll notice an immediate improvement and continued change over time.
A few things to think about.
We’ve already hinted at some other things to consider that can affect a roof cleaning job. Now, let’s also consider the following.
- Size of dwelling and the size of the roof.
- How much vegetation is growing on the roof.
- The type of roof – e.g. with a thatched roof, no water is used.
- Accessibility of the roof.
- Height of the roof.
