Roof Cleaning London

Residential And Commercial Roof Cleaning London

As a home or business owner, you'll hope to protect your property and keep it looking clean with our exterior cleaning services in London. Moss, algae and lichen grow very quickly in the climate we experience here in the United Kingdom.

Very quickly your roof can age and become dull, with additional maintenance issues appearing. Pests will be attracted to your roof for food and shelter and will exasperate the urgent need for a roofing specialist.

Once you can start to see growth, amalgamation of birds or discolouration from the ground on your roof, the only answer is a good roof cleaning service, and ideally a company that can fix any issues whilst on your roof, to prevent too many people walking on your roof, who do not have an understanding of its structural safety.

A dirty roof not only ruins the look of your home - it can actually damage your roof, lifting and cracking tiles leaving gaps and holes for water to leak into your home, and without cleaning more growth and damage will definitely occur.

Experienced roof cleaners are essential for this kind of work, simply due to the problems of access, safety and insurance. They will keep the cost of reactive roof maintenance to a minimum and assist with scheduling pro-active maintenance that is planned and prepared for.

Roof Moss Removal London

What's on your roof is probably a combination of moss, algae, lichens, and fungi, all of them older than the dinosaurs and very unsightly. The spores can just be carried in the wind, which means that everyone’s roof will at some point be affected. Moss needs a fair amount of moisture to live and is happier in low sunlight. Overhanging trees provide the shade and food source they like, as they drop their debris.

You'll usually notice stains and patches that begin to grow. Moss holds water and provides a chance for it to leak past tiles. The tiles themselves can start to lift.

Removing these growths will make the roof look better, often returning the colour to almost new, depending on the service you chose. Most importantly, it will enable the roof to do its job of keeping the water out.

 

Roof Cleaning Company Best Practice

Cleaning moss with a wire brush helps to get rid of the roots once the main growths have been removed. The wrong detergents or chemical solutions should be avoided as they can weaken tiles and slates and the wooden battens holding traditional tiles. Experience and training will ensure a good roofing technician can give you the best advice for your home.

Effective cleaning requires some elbow grease and tools to get into the crevices carefully without causing damage. There will also be a significant build up of waste that needs to be removed by a licensed professional.

After your roof is cleaned, a light spray of biocide / algaecide will assist with the prevention regrowth of moss.

Please speak to your professional roof cleaning technicians, who will be able to evaluate the environment and climate and select the best algaecide for you.

 

Soft Wash Roof Cleaning Preventing Regrowth

Once the heavy work is done, chemical products to prevent regrowth are often a sensible option. They are not always popular, and some of the products on the market are potentially dangerous, and/or ineffective. We regularly work with some that are not environmentally destructive but still get the job done.

Whichever remedy you choose, we really do not recommend trying to clean your roof yourself unless you are experienced and trained on roof work and working at height. The usual risks of working at height are increased due to slippery, wet algae.
