    Your one stop for roof cleaning

    before and after moss cleaning

    Towcester Cleaners is a professional roof cleaning company that handles roof cleaning jobs in Towcester and its surrounding areas. Cleaning the roof from time to time is an essential aspect of commercial and residential property maintenance. The most obvious reason is that it makes the house more appealing-- have your roof cleaned to make a good impression. Mould, lichen, algae, and moss require removal as they alter the roof's condition in time. Sometimes, the north and west sides of the roof get less sun and heat. The shady sides generate biomass, soot, and dirt build-up and represent reasons why a building absorbs less heat.

    Additionally, roof cleaning prevents water damage, helps downpipes and gutters remain functional, and improves the health of your roof. Details come next.

    Towcester Roof Cleaners remove mould, mildew, algae, etc.

    With roofs, there's always a risk for mould, mildew, moss, algae, stains, dirt, and debris to collect. Weather and air pollution also play a role in altering the roof's condition. Roofs are crucial for the houses' structures and you should never skip cleaning and taking care of the roof. Check out and clean the roof regularly; it will only do its job when it's clean, repaired and in good condition.

    Algae is terrible for your roof as it makes shingles and tiles less effective in protecting your house. Let's not forget black algae and lichen that can reduce the heating and cooling performance of the roof. As a result, they will decrease your house's energy efficiency. When the roof no longer accomplishes its tasks, the HVAC system inside will work harder than before to keep a comfortable temperature inside. Soon enough, your energy bill will go through the roof—which is already dirty and probably damaged!

    It extends the lifespan of the roof

    When the roof is clean, the shingles and roof materials will remain reliable and expand the roof's lifespan. Moss and algae commonly damage many roof tile materials. Asphalt shingles can curl wet because of the moss; the risk of falling during strong winds is significantly high.

    When the roof and its materials are not in good condition, you are also at risk for accidents and health problems. Keep your family healthy and safe by ensuring your roof is always clean and in good condition.

    It's necessary when you have trees around the house

    Leaves, falling branches, debris, and bird droppings affect your roof's integrity and ruin your house's curb appeal. Cleaning the roof will give it a fresh look and make your home look pretty again. You should especially clean the roof if you have several trees around the house. Cleaning the roof is cheaper than repairing or replacing parts of the roof.

    It improves the curb appeal

    If you intend to sell your house soon or want your home to stand out in a good way, contact our professionals for roof cleaning. Hiring experts for roof cleaning is a smart way to sell high and impress your neighbours too.

    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 that's 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.

    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.

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.
