I needed a cherry picker to make repairs to a gutter that was too high for ladders. Aaron and Harrison arrived and set up the cherry picker swiftly and safely on a busy road. Their communication was brilliant, letting me know when they were on their way. They were also very hands-on and helped me get the job done. I will happily use them again in the future.

FAQ'S

Simply put , soft wash roof cleaning is cleaning a roof using chemicals applied at a low pressure. It is an alternative to pressure washing a roof.

However softwashing alone will not remove moss from your roof . To remove the moss from your roof there are three main techniques.

Manual removal with scrapers, pressure washing or steam cleaning. 

One way to treat a roof is by the controlled spraying of a biocidal wash, products including softwash solutions and Bio Wash. These biocide solutions will kill any biofilm such as moss algae’s and lichen. But as mentioned above it will not immediately remove moss from your roof. 

The spraying of Biocides onto roofs is relatively low risk when compared to other more aggressive cleaning methods however it does not clean the dirt from roofs or remove heavy moss or soiling on the roof and for that reason it is usually carried out after another roof cleaning method.

Applying biocides after roof cleaning helps to make sure that the remaining roots and spores are killed.

This is often a question we are asked by our clients, the answer is….

Some roof tiles are suitable for pressure washing such as slate and clay. Some older concrete tiles are less susceptible for pressure washing.

This is because the surface of the tile can be damaged leaving the tile more water absorbent.

Sometimes presssure washing will speed up the removal of a top coloured layer to reveal a different coloured concrete below.

This top coloured layer of the tile is often the tiles water repellent layer. When this is lost the tile will hold more water promoting growth of organic matter such as moss and algaes.

However, this also happens naturally over time to these type of tiles. This can often be seen when some moss falls from the roof revealing a different colour. Often a concrete or bage colour. If you look at the reverse of th e moss you can sometimes see the coloured granules from the top layer of the tile. This can also sometimes be seen lying in guttering . 

 

The solution for this is to have the roof cfully cleaned removing all moss, algae and organic growth and then have the roof recoated with a colured roof coating. Not only will this provide a uniform appearnace with the colour but the coating will also provide that water repellency that the tile has lost over time. 

To find ut more about roof coatings and sealing click here.

Is the roof in good structural repair?

Your roof may be dirty and covered in moss but are all the tiles in the correct place and is the pointing on the ridges still strong?

You can Pressure wash your roof if it is in good structural condition, the pointing is strong and there are no visible entry points for water such as cracks or missing tiles.

With every roof clean we inspect the roof to establish the condition of the roof and the type of tile.

We inform our client of the best process for restoring their roof whether that is pressure washing, soft washing, steam cleaning or sometimes just removing the moss and treating the roof with a biocidal wash to help keep the roof clean and moss free for longer.

If the roof is showing evidence of colour loss and patchiness then we would recommend having the roof recoated afer cleaning.

If A roof is left unmaintained in the British climate then moss and organic growth will grow on it. Not only is this unsightly but moss creates mainy issues,

Moss not only annoyingly falls onto patios and drives creating a never ending task but it also falls into guttering and downpipes creating a flooding risk with your guttering. As well as that moss can grow between tiles and dislodge tiles leading to reduced functionality of the roof.

Moss can hold a significant volume of water putting unnecessary stress on your roof and when freezing this can create a risk of cracked and damaged tiles.

As a roof ages over time, it becomes more susceptible to damage caused by the elements and general wear and tear.

At LBC we know that no two roofs are the same and we take this into account every time we provide our roof cleaning services. For example, before cleaning moss from roofs we will ensure that the equipment we use will not harm your roofs material.

We have worked across areas such as Wembley, Finchley and Hampstead on a variety of different roofs and have treated each one with individual care and attention. 

For an instant, dramatic change to your roofs appearance pressure washing could be the right method. However, pressure washing is not suitable for all types of roofs, so get an expert opinion before you go doing some irreversible damage.

Pressure washing roof cleaning, is using high pressure water jets to remove years of dirt, moss and algae etc, however this method is only advisable for certain types of tiled roofs and also if the cement work is solid.

There are several different access methods  that can be used for pressure a roof. Depending on the job and access to the roof you may need cherry picker hire, rope access or ladder access.

We also have market leading surface cleaning technology which allows us to clean the roof using high pressure while minimising the mess created.
