    before and after moss cleaning

    Northants Exterior Clean is a professional roof cleaning company that handles roof cleaning jobs in Northampton and 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 down pipes and gutters remain functional, and improves the health of your roof. Details come next.

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

    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.

    What Will Your Roof Look Like after roof cleaning?

    Cleaning the roof is good for your roof and for your entire house's appearance. After our team at Roof Cleaners Northampton removes moss and lichen, the house will look impeccable and attractive again.

    The most crucial benefit of roof professional service and cleaning is cosmetic. You often jet wash your driveways, wash the windows, mow the lawn, but forget that roof needs proper TLC as well. No matter if you plan to sell your house soon or you want to make it looks its best, roof cleaning should be on your to-do list.

    On top of everything else, cleaning the roof will expand its durability. Moss, lichen, dirt, and other debris can collect on shady areas which reduces the amount of heat that the house can absorb. When you skip cleaning, the roof will cause dampness, which decreases the house's energy efficiency and increases the heating bills.

    Once our team in Northampton is done, the roof is clean, treated, and looks like new. Roof tiles are bright and you can see their original colour. No matter the age of your house, proper roof cleaning will enhance its curb appeal and benefit the house's structure.

    Don't hesitate to call the best cleaners for roof cleaning in Northampton. Every roof cleaner in our team is professionally trained, experienced, and skilled in manually scraping roof moss to stop organic growth. It's one of the most time-consuming aspects of our work. We aim to prevent moss and lichen spores from growing back and give your roof the perfectly finished effect.

    Should you clean your roof?

    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.

    Even if roof cleaning isn't the most challenging task around the house, it still requires equipment, skills, and knowledge. We don't recommend you clean your roof; leave it to professionals for the most effective results. Northampton Cleaners is one of the most reliable teams to hire in the Northampton area and our services come at a reasonable price.

Our local roof cleaners will make sure not to alter the landscaping while cleaning your roof and ask you to move vehicles out of the way. We will examine the roof and decide if any repair work is necessary.

    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.

    The cleaners apply the biocide treatment that remains active for a long time and keeps moss and mould at a distance is efficient against the stubbornest stains. Moreover, it's affordable, fast, and ensures excellent results.

    Expect our reliable roof technicians to remove all debris from the gutter line and leave the property as it was before cleaning the roof.

    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.
