Low pressure roof cleaning – SOFT WASHING
We scraped the moss growth from the tiles on this property in Caldicot, Gwent. Next, we applied a chemical solution to the roof to clean the roof using soft wash methods. The chemical clean and soft wash roof cleaning transformed the look of the property.
How to clean a roof
There are two options when it comes to roof cleaning..
1: SOFT WASHING
First – A light scrape is carried out on the roof. This will remove the majority of moss and lichen living on the roof.
Second – All gutters are then emptied and surrounding areas are tidied up.
Third – Biocide is applied to the surface to kill the algae, moss and lichen spores.
Fourth – Every time it rains the rain will continue to clean the surface. Over a period of months the roof will get cleaner and brighter as the organisms living on the roof die and fall away.
2: PRESSURE WASH
First – Down pipes are blocked to ensure moss doesn’t clog the drains.
Second – Roof tiles are pressure washed from above the roof tiles, ensuring water doesn’t not go under the tiles.
Third – biocide is applied to kill the moss, lichen and algae spores.
