    Why should I do it?

    Roof Cleaning Nottinghamshire

    A large build-up of dirt, moss on roof tiles and other natural growth may cause big issues with your roof and the life expectancy of the tiles will eventually be affected too. If you neglect your roof, you’ll find these organic growths will rapidly spread out of control with their roots creeping their way into vulnerable spots in the roof tiles, gradually widening them throughout time until cracks become visible. Like all living organisms they need water to live, and after it rains, they’ll behave like a sponge securing as much water as they possibly can. As it finds its way in the cracks into your roof it might well cause serious and costly destruction to the rafters and joists. Also you could well find 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 boards. In conclusion, having a roof cleaned is a necessary job for many reasons.

    For many people though cleaning their roof is simply an aesthetic preference and we can’t fault you for that! Roofs can become very dull due to organic growths like moss and lichen, and at that point a roof cleaning company is necessary. Roofs are also frequently tarnished and stained by an everyday bacterium called gloeocapsa magma affecting the natural appearance of your otherwise charming home. Without a doubt, this bacteria growth is completely normal however it isn’t pleasant to see and it can over time 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 progressively dirtier wouldn’t it be great to see it looking as good as new once more?

    The next question is, “Is this a straightforward DIY job that I should try to do myself?” Let’s look at some evidence to propose what the best way to do this is.

    Should I do this alone?
