Roof Moss - Algae Removal and Treatment
Most roof cleaning companies use a high pressure power
washer for roof cleaning to remove moss and algae.
However, high pressure roof cleaning machine can
sometimes leave the roof in a less stable condition than
before it was cleaned.
We don't use a high pressure washer for our roof
cleaning service. We use low - medium pressure washer
roof cleaning techniques that guarantee to get rid of
unwanted moss and algae and can then treat it to stop
the algae and moss returning
Dangers of excessive roof moss.
Moss is a natural
organic growth it has the ability to absorb and retain
water this can add up to one tonne per cubic metre. This
can add unnecessary weight and stress to the overall
roofing structure and its vital supports.
During the winter
months moss saturated with water will expand as it
freezes, this expansion can lift and displace roofing
tiles and slates. This means water penetrates the
roof space and causes damage! It can also fill your
gutters causing overflows and damp in your walls
it then you don't have
to keep removing it!
If the cleaned surface
is not treated afterwards, algae will return within a matter of weeks
meaning surfaces would have to be cleaned several times
a year to keep them looking smart.
In order to avoid this, we offer
to treat cleaned surfaces against algae and moss re growth.

3 years, depending on conditions
