Roof Cleaning Milford offer a professional roof cleaning service for home and business premises in Milford and surrounding areas in Nottinghamshire. Roof cleaning can be a quick and easy way to improve the look of your house, by removing moss, dirt and more that has accumulated on your roof.
As a roof becomes older and become more porous, they are often invaded by moss and debris. Keeping the roof clean and free of moss and algae may be challenging for the majority of owners and can become a continual cause for annoyance.
Would it not be nice to have your roof looking like new again?
Why should I have it cleaned?
A really serious accumulation of moss, dirt on roof tiles and other organic growth is likely to cause big issues with your roof and the durability of the tiles will over time be affected too. If you neglect your roof, you’ll find these plants will swiftly grow out of control with their roots working their way into vulnerable spots in the roof tiles, steadily widening them over time until cracks become visible. Like all living organisms they need water to thrive, and after it rains, they’ll act like a sponge securing as much water as they can. Once it finds its way through the cracks into your roof it could cause serious and expensive deterioration to the rafters and joists. Lastly you could well discover moss that has come loose and fallen down the roof into your gutter which can result in overflowing rainwater from your gutter which penetrates and damages your fascia’s. In truth, arranging to have a roof cleaned is an important service for a number of reasons.
For many though cleaning their roof is entirely an aesthetic preference and we can’t blame you for that! Roofs can become very unsightly because of organic growths like lichen and moss, and at that point a roof cleaning service is vital. Roofs are also periodically tarnished and stained by a prevalent bacterium called gloeocapsa magma affecting the general appearance of your otherwise charming home. By all means, this bacteria growth is completely natural but after all it isn’t attractive to see and after a while it can damage your roof. Comparing a clean roof and one that needs a clean can be night and day. After months and years of seeing your roof get progressively dirtier wouldn’t it be lovely to see it looking as good as new again?
Next you might ask, “Is this a easy DIY job that I should try to do myself?” Let’s look at some evidence to suggest what the best way to do this is.
Should I clean it alone?
The most common reason why a lot of people haven’t attempted to clean their own roof is since it usually means working at a height where most of us wouldn’t feel comfortable or safe. At these heights any kind of slip can lead to a very serious injury.
Many cow-boy tradesmen who attempt this kind of work, claim it’s easy money and that it doesn’t require a lot of skill. Is there any truth in that? A service such as this requires a degree of skill and care that we can assure. Using the correct roof access equipment, the best tools and our experience and know-how we can deliver a roof cleaning service that pleases you without you having to put yourself at needless risk.
How is it done?
We will survey your roof with care and attention before beginning any work, to establish the best cleaning method to use 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 purging your roof of organic colonising growths by getting right into the moss root system and killing the spores. You’ll notice an immediate improvement and continued improvement as time passes.
