How long will it take to clean my roof?

This depends on the size and condition of your roof. If there’s a big moss build-up, it will take longer to repair than light damage. The length of time will also depend on the ease of access to the roof. If it can be cleaned on the ground by the use of extendable poles, it will be quicker than if you have to hire a cherry picker to reach your roof. It should take between one to three days to clean your roof and clean up afterwards.

One of the most time-consuming aspects of roof cleaning is the cleaning up afterwards. Not only will the mossy build-up and algae need to be disposed of, but cleaning a roof with biocide and bleach needs to be handled carefully in order to avoid causing pollution.

What results can I expect from Roof Cleaning?

Cleaning your roof improves the whole appearance of your property. Once your roof is free of moss and lichen it will instantly make your home look clean, tidy, and in good condition.

Consequently, the most important aspect of roof cleaning is usually cosmetic. Whether you are considering selling your property or just want to improve the look of your home, cleaning your roof is worth the investment as it adds value to your property.

Once your roof is cleaned and treated, it should look like new. Roof tiles will be bright and back to their original colour. Cleaning instantly revitalises the appearance of your home, so whatever the age of your property, you will be pleased by the finished effect.

How often should I get my roof cleaned?

It is a good idea to get your roof professionally cleaned once a year. This makes it easier to catch problems early on if they develop. If you have a roof that is in good shape or was just recently installed, then you may only need your roof cleaned once every two years or so.

What is the best time of year to hire a Roof Cleaner?

The summer is undoubtedly the best time of year to get your roof cleaned. The dry weather makes a much safer environment for professionals to work with. Less rain also means a quicker turnaround time.

How do I check my Roof Cleaning Specialist’s credentials?

There is no formal training required to be a roof cleaner, although look for individuals who have completed training courses at Smartseal and the Roof Cleaning Institute.

Before you sign on the dotted line, read a professional’s customer reviews on their website and Bark profile, to ensure that they are trustworthy and reliable.

What are the different methods of Roof Cleaning?

There are several types of roof cleaning. These include:

  • High-pressure jet washing - High-pressure jet washing involves roof cleaning specialists using industrial-grade jet wash equipment to blast off dirt, grime, and any sort of caked-on debris. This type of roof cleaning is great for moss and algae removal. After the washing process, the roof is treated with a fungicidal wash that helps prevent the build-up and return of fungus.
  • Low-pressure jet washing - The low-pressure jet washing removes moss and algae and leaves your roof looking clean and free from debris. Soft wash treatments kill spores and treat embedded fungal growth that can be problematic to remove. Soft wash treatments are often better for roofs that cannot handle as intense treatment as high-pressure jet washes. As with the high-pressure wash, the roof will be treated afterwards with a fungicide to prevent build-ups.
  • Manual roof cleaning - This manual process involves cleaning, sanitising, and eliminating dirt, grime, and fungus. All foreign bodies, moss, lichens, snails, and bird mess are also dealt with. After the roof cleaning process has finished, the roof is treated with an anti-fungal wash to prevent further fungal problems.

What are the main reasons for hiring Roof Cleaning Specialists?

  • Safety - Safety is by far the biggest reason to hire roof cleaning services rather than doing it yourself. Working on roofs, whether it is installing them in the first place or cleaning them, is an extremely risky business. Professional roof cleaning might be more expensive than doing it yourself but it is more than worth the extra cost for your personal safety.
  • Experience - Professional roof cleaning services have lots of experience and are highly trained in how to tackle different types of roofs. They know the tips and tricks to leave your roof looking good as new!
  • Tools - A bucket and sponge are never going to work when cleaning a roof. Roof cleaning specialists have high-grade tools that allow them to get consistently great results whilst still working quickly.

What I love most about my job is job satisfaction. From start to finish the incredible transformation of the roof and property the customers are always so amazed and happy with the results.
There’s nothing better than that.

What inspired you to start your own business?

What inspired me to start my own business. I would say I was getting tired of working for the big companies who charge exorbitant prices and knowing I can do the same quality of work and using exactly the same products for a small percentage of the cost.

Why should our clients choose you?

I’m extremely qualified and have been roof cleaning for 10 years and been roofing from a young age i would go to work on school holidays with my father and grandfather and they taught me everything I know today. The customer is always right, always go the extra mile and never take payment untill the job is completed and the customer is 100% satisfied with the result.

What changes have you made to keep your customers safe from Covid-19?

Masks are always worn on arrival if there’s any parts of the property or concerns that need pointing out we keep a 2m distance at all times or customers can stay in the property for the entire project and stay safe.

Many homeowners are tempted to clean their roofs themselves using a pressure washer or a jet wash. However, not knowing how to use this equipment correctly can cause damage to a roof, especially if it is constructed from asphalt or tile. If used incorrectly, the high power of pressure washers can push tiles out of place, leaving the roof susceptible to leakage. It’s always best to hire a professional roof cleaner to clean your roof to minimise the risk of damage.

Moss can be extremely damaging for any type of roof. As moss begins to grow, it will establish roots on your roof, causing the roof to degrade. This will eventually lead to leakages in the roof. The best way to prevent moss from becoming an issue on your roof is to have your roof professionally cleaned once a year to remove any moss before it begins to take hold.

To extend the lifespan of your roof, you should have your roof cleaned professionally at least once a year. This will help to stop moss from taking hold and allow professionals to spot any issues with your roof before they begin to cause a problem.
