    Your one stop for roof cleaning

    before and after moss cleaning

    Silverstone Window Cleaners is a trustworthy roof cleaning company that has excellent results with roof cleaning in Silverstone and nearby areas. Cleaning the roof on a regular basis is a critical aspect for both commercial and residential properties. Roof cleaning's most obvious benefit is a better appearance for the roof and house. You must remove lichen, algae, mould, and moss as they harm the roof's condition. 

    Typically, the north and west sides of the roof don't benefit from enough sun and heat. As a result, soot, dirt and biomass will deposit in the shady areas and stop the house from absorbing heat. 

    Another benefit of roof cleaning is the prevention of water damage. A clean roof will maintain pipes and gutters functional and contribute to the roof's condition.

    Silverstone Roof Cleaners remove mould, mildew, algae, dirt.

    In time, algae, moss, mildew, mould, debris, stains, dirt, and leaves build up on the roof. Air pollution and weather also alter the roof, which is essential for the integrity of the house's structure. Inspecting and cleaning your roof improves its appearance, condition, and durability.

    Algae can reduce the efficiency of tiles and shingles. Lichen and black algae can affect the cooling/heating abilities of the roof. Additionally, they can alter the house's energy efficiency. When the roof cannot do its job correctly, your HVAC system works harder and less efficiently, which increases your energy bills and lowers comfort.

    It extends the lifespan of the roof

    A roof clean will extend the durability and reliability of the shingles and roof materials. Algae and moss can damage specific roof tile materials. Moss will make the asphalt shingles curl wet and increase the risk of falling in high winds.

    The situation is dangerous for your health and safety, not only for the roof. When you have the roof clean, you take care of your house and the family you care for.

    It's necessary when you have trees around the house

    Bird droppings, falling branches and leaves, and debris can alter the roof's appearance and integrity. Roof cleaning instantly revitalises the looks of your home. It's much needed when you have trees surrounding your property. It's also more affordable than repairs and replacing the roof that will be necessary when not cleaned accordingly.

    It improves the curb appeal

    Whether you plan to sell or just want to improve your house's curb appeal, having the roof cleaned is one of the best decisions to make. Hiring professionals for such services are affordable and can even increase your house's sale price.

    Should you clean your roof yourself?

    Roof cleaning is one of the most essential parts of the house outside maintenance. Regardless of what you may have heard, high pressure washing and jet washing can damage the roof. All roofers highlight the necessity of cleaning to expand the roofing system's lifespan, no matter if they're metal roofs, asphalt shingles, etc. Roofs cleaned once a year, gutter cleaning, and repairing loose/absent tiles will help the roof last for the longest time.

    Step 2- scraping

    Our roof technicians use ladders or mobile scaffold platforms and moss removal scraping tools to remove dirt, moss, debris, and other residue built up on the roof. The cleaning process is efficient and skilled cleaners use tailored shingle scrapers that match any shingle.

    With roof cleaning, the professionals also clean up the dirt from the gutters and take it away from your property. Should you decide you want moss and soil in the garden for mulch, they can keep the moss.

    Step 3- low-pressure steam cleaning

    Steam cleaning a roof has many benefits. Some professionals use a lance for the safety of the ladder or scaffolding, so they no longer need to walk on the roof. A pressure washer (low steam) is the most efficient service for roods as it removes any stain and dirt from the rood.

    Additionally, low-pressure washers don't alter the roof shingles and maintain the integrity of the protective layer. The cleaning method will remove stains, algae, lichens and kill their root system as well.

    Step 4- use biocide

    Biocide is a substance highly efficient at killing and keeping at distance moss, algae, mildew, mould, fungi, and other organic substances. Commonly the biocide is known as bio-wash, it’s a mould inhibitor and an efficient method to deter harmful organics.

    How long does it take to clean roof tiles?

    The size of the roof and its condition make for the main factors affecting the length of the cleaning process. For instance, when moss has deeply influenced the roof's condition, the moss removal process will take longer than with a roof slightly affected. Additionally, the type of access to the roof tiles weighs in. Professionals can clean the roof from ground level with extendable poles; using a cherry picker is also possible, but it's more time-consuming.

    Frequently Asked Questions about Roof Cleaning

    Will the roofer walk around the roof?

    Professional roof cleaners use ladders or mobile scaffold platforms so that they no longer need to walk on the roof. Walking on a roof is dangerous for the roof technicians and the roof as it can cause severe damage. Our cleaners use lance technology so that the whole process goes safely and efficiently. We will reach difficult areas such as around the chimney and clean every square foot of the roof.

    What are the black spots on your roof?

    The black spots on a roof could be Gloeocapsa magma. It's an alga that feeds on various shingle materials and generates long-term damage. The black organic substance doesn't just make the roof unsightly, but it also reflects heat and reduces your house's ability to maintain heat. As a result, you will use the heating system more often than before and you will pay high energy bills.
