The Importance of Roof Cleaning

There are two clear benefits when it comes to having your roof cleaned.

  • The removal of all debris from your roof prevents damage and premature deterioration. This prolongs your roof’s lifespan, and your investment in it.

  • Following a clean, your roof simply looks more aesthetically pleasing. A moss-free roof improves your property’s kerb appeal and makes a great first impression.

When you hire our roofing company for your cleaning needs, you save yourself the time and effort of sweeping away moss and other debris. You also don’t need to manage the risks of working at height.

Our safety-conscious team cleans all roofs by hand. This produces a far superior result than using a pressure washer. In fact, the force of pressurised water often damages roofing materials.

We have perfected our roof cleaning methods over the years. You can trust us for a thorough clean and exceptional results.

What Are Biocide Treatments?

A biocide is a specially formulated chemical treatment designed to control microbial growths. As a roofing company, we use these treatments to fight against:

  • Algae

  • Mould

  • Mildew

  • Lichen

  • Bacteria (including Gleocapsa Magma)

Roofs create the kind of warm, moist environments in which these organisms thrive. This is especially true for roofing slopes that face to the north and west. While many are little more than unsightly or an inconvenience, others directly decompose and break down the protective outer layer of roofing tiles.

To tackle all eventualities, we clear your roof of all debris and growths before applying a market-leading biocide treatment. This helps to prevent the regrowth of any organic matter we remove.

The Consequences of Avoiding Roof Cleaning

If you don’t clean your roof in Haslemere, Guildford or the surrounding areas, you run the risk of allowing aggressive organisms to get a foothold. Given the time, they will break down the outer layer of your tiles, making them much more vulnerable to weathering and damage.

As tiles break down, pieces of debris will come loose. If not removed, strong winds and rainwater can move these hard chunks around your roof, increasing the chances of widespread damage – and subsequent repairs.

Moss, algae and lichen also disturb the flow of rainwater across the roofing surface. This leads to uneven material deterioration and issues with the roofline system.

In addition, organic growths usually establish themselves where tiles overlap. Continued growth not only pushes tiles apart, exposing your roof to moisture ingress, but it also increases the amount of water retention. In turn, this puts a heavier load on your structure and makes frost penetration and cracked tiles more likely.
