Getting your roof cleaned is a relatively simple way of improving the look of your property, by clearing moss, dirt and more that has built up up there.

    As roofs age and become more porous, they are often affected by moss, algae and dirt. Keeping your roof clean and without moss is usually challenging for most householders and can become a constant cause for issues.

    Wouldn’t it be wonderful to have your roof look new again?

    Why have it cleaned?

    Roof Cleaning Nottinghamshire

    Large amounts of accumulation of dirt, moss on the tiles on your roof and other natural growth is likely to cause big issues with the roof and the life-span of the tiles will eventually be affected too. If you neglect your roof, you’ll find these organic growths will swiftly spread out of control with their roots working their way into weak spots in the tiles of the roof, gradually widening them throughout time until cracks become visible. Like all plants they need water to live, and after it rains, they’ll behave like a sponge securing as much water as they possibly can. Once it finds its way through the cracks into your roof it could cause serious and costly damage to the rafters and joists. Also you could well become aware of moss that has come loose and rolled down the roof ending up in your gutter which can result in overflowing rainwater from your gutter which saturates and damages your fascia’s. Really then, having a roof cleaned is a required job for many reasons.

    For many people though cleaning their roof is purely an aesthetic choice 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 company is vital. Roofs are also frequently tarnished and stained by an everyday bacterium called gloeocapsa magma affecting the familiar appearance of your otherwise charming house. Without a doubt, this bacteria growth is completely normal but after all it isn’t pleasant to see and gradually 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 observing your roof get more and more dirty wouldn’t it be brilliant to see it looking almost as good as new like it used to?

    Maybe you’re wondering, “Is this a straightforward DIY job that I should try to do myself?” Let’s look at some evidence to suggest what the best possible solution is here.

    Can I just do this myself?
