Why should I have it cleaned?
A really serious accumulation of moss, dirt on your roof and other organic growth could well cause serious problems with the roof and the durability of the tiles will over time be compromised too. If you neglect your roof, you’ll find these plants will quickly spread uncontrollably with their roots finding their way into weaknesses in the tiles of the roof, progressively widening them over time until cracks become visible. Like all living organisms they need water to live, and once it has rained, they’ll behave like a sponge retaining as much water as they can. As it finds its way through the cracks into your roof it may well cause serious and costly deterioration to the rafters and joists. Finally you could well discover moss that has come loose and fallen down the roof ending up in your gutter which can result in overflowing rainwater from your gutter which penetrates and damages your fascia boards. In conclusion, having a roof cleaned is a required service for many reasons.
For a lot of people though getting their roof cleaned is entirely an aesthetic preference and we can’t blame you for that! Roofs can become very dull due to organic growths like moss and lichen, and then a roof cleaning company is needed. Roofs are also often discoloured and stained by a common place bacterium called gloeocapsa magma affecting the general appearance of your otherwise charming dwelling. Without a doubt, this bacteria growth is completely natural but after all it isn’t pleasant to see and after a while it can damage your roof. The difference between a clean roof and one that needs a clean 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 like it used to?
