Roof Cleaning

When was the last time you had your roof cleaned? We take a look at why it is important to keep the roof of your property free of debris and to have it professionally cleaned. We also share what our Plymouth roof cleaning services entail.

Exposed to the Elements

It’s fair to say, the roof of your house is more exposed than the rest of the property to the elements and can take quite a battering from the extremes in weather that we experience, especially in coastal areas like Plymouth. Unless we look up, or see our property from a distance, we don’t tend to notice how grimy and dirty it has become. In fact, over time, it’s fair to say that we forget what the original colour was, or how much the roof has actually weathered.

One of the most hospitable environments for algae to grow is on your roof. Imagine how slippery and slimy your patio or decking gets once the sun/rain combination provides the perfect environment for algae to grow. This is even more prominent on the roof. it’s not just algae either, it can also encourage the growth of moss as you can see in the following photos.

Moss and algae don’t just look unsightly, they can also lead to issues with the structure of the roof. They will absorb the water causing damp on and in between the roof tiles and eventually this will end in damage to the roof. During the winter months, the damp tiles can crack – then your roof is exposed and vulnerable to the weather conditions.

Debris falling from the roof can also cause problems as it slips into the gutters below causing blockages which can lead to further damage to the property.

The simple solution to all of this is to have your Plymouth roof professionally cleaned. Using either a soft wash or low pressure steam washing technique, to treat and remove algae, moss and other dirt and debris, you can be safe in the knowledge that your property is protected from the elements. Our roof cleaning service not only removes the build up of dirt and grime, it also carries on working to protect your property after we have left.
