ROOF CLEANING & MOSS REMOVAL TREATMENT
There are several different methods used when cleaning a roof!
Here at Tayview External Cleaning Services, our preferred cleaning choice is the soft wash. Soft washing is a term given to exterior cleaning, using a much lower amount of pressure than pressure washing.
We do provide a pressure washing service for a deep clean of roofs at the customers choice, but would recommend our moss removal service, using our purpose made scrapers, which are designed to fit snugly, in any different slate/tile profile, then a spray treatment to kill any moss, algae, fungi and lichens. This treatment seeps into the organic growths, killing the spores without the brute force of a pressure washer.
As stated above, a pressure washer does have its place in the roof/exterior cleaning sector.
Firstly, we would carry out a visual roof survey, to identify the contaminates growing on your home roof and undertake a risk assessment, to ensure all health and safety is adhered to.
If moss is needed to be removed, our operators would cover areas around your property to ensure a tidy job is undertaken. We would then start to remove the deposits of moss manually, using our extendable specialized hand held tools.
Once we are completely satisfied that the build up of the moss has been removed, we would then apply the soft wash treatment to your roof, using our specialized equipment, this is when the soft wash gets to work and starts to kill any remaining moss, algae and lichens that are still alive on the roof.
After the roof has been soaked in the treatment solution, a full clean out of the guttering system of your home will take place, making sure nothing is left behind. Then, we would carry out the final clean up around your property, making sure it is exactly as it was before we started.
All of our experienced staff are trained, qualified and insured to be working at height.
Not only will soft washing clean and restore your roof without the worry of any damage occurring but it will also protect the roof from any regrowth for many months/years to come.
