    before and after moss cleaning

    Spratton Window Cleaners is the go-to roof cleaning company for many clients in Spratton and surrounding areas. Regardless of the building's type, size, or age, it needs roof cleaning from time to time. Such cleaning has several benefits, but improving a building's appearance is the most obvious. Moss, lichen, mould, and algae make a roof look unattractive and alter its structure.

    The west and north sides of a roof don't get much sun and heat. As a result, dirt, soot, and biomass will thrive in these areas and alter a house's ability to absorb the sun's heat. Professionals will remove biomass, soot, and dirt to improve the house's energy efficiency.

    Roof cleaning will reduce the risk of water damage. When the roof is clean, pipes and gutters get cleaned too and work as expected. They help the roof do its job and protect a house's condition and structure.

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

    Naturally, debris, mildew, mould, stains, algae, moss, and leaves collect up on the roof. Air pollutants and weather impact the roof and alter its ability to protect the house. We recommend you check out the roof from time to time and see how its condition and appearance.

    Algae make tiles and shingles less effective; a roof with lichen and black algae will lose its ability to heat or cool the house underneath. We can say that lichen and black algae eventually alter a house's energy efficiency. If the roof has a poor protective ability, the heating system will struggle to keep the house warm. If your energy bills keep getting higher and higher, the roof could be the culprit.

    It extends the lifespan of the roof

    If the roof is clean, its shingles and other materials will be protected too. Moss and algae can alter roof tile materials. For example, moss makes the asphalt shingles curl wet and may fall during a windy day. Missing shingles is terrible for the roof and can cause unpleasant incidents and accidents when falling. Protect your family and property and hire professionals for regular roof cleaning.

    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

    You don't need to sell to want your house to look nice. A clean roof makes an excellent impression on guests, friends, and neighbours. It can definitely attract potential buyers if you plan to sell. A clean roof may help you get a better price for your property!

    How Will Your Roof Look after roof cleaning?

    Cleaning the roof is good for your roof and for your entire house's appearance. After our team at Roof Cleaners Spratton 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.

    Our Spratton team can leave the roof spotless and attractive as new. You will be able to see the initial colour of the roof tiles after we clean them. Even if a house is old, a professionally cleaned roof will improve its curb appeal and extend its durability.

    If you need roof cleaning in Spratton, we are happy to help. All of our roof cleaners are professionally trained and highly skilled. They are detail-oriented--it's a crucial skill for scraping roof moss. Our technicians will eliminate moss and lichen spores and stop their regrowth. Let our team make your roof look its best again with roof cleaning. 

    Should you clean the roof yourself?

    Professionals agree that exterior house maintenance must include roof cleaning. There's a common misconception that jet washing and high pressures are suitable methods to clean the roof. However, these methods can cause irreparable damage to the roof--we never recommend it! As experienced and knowledgeable technicians, we know which strategies to use to clean the roof without causing any damage. Jet washing and high pressure are never such methods.

    Roof cleaning may not be the most challenging task around the house, but it does imply a good skillset, proper equipment, and vast knowledge of roof cleaning. Unless you're not a professional roof cleaner, you should never embark on such a duty. For affordable roof cleaning services in the Spratton area, Spratton Cleaners is the most trustworthy company to hire.

    The roof cleaning process at Spratton Roof Cleaners

    Professionally cleaned roofs look perfect and don't need regular maintenance work. Some homeowners risk cleaning the roofs independently but don't obtain the same results. Only experienced cleaners like ours know which methods and solutions to clean any roof perfectly. Our cleaners have developed a process to clean roofs; nevertheless, they adjust the steps according to the roof's condition.

    Step 1- examination

    Book Window Cleaners Spratton for roof cleaning services. We are flexible so we can come whenever suits you the most. Hire our experienced roof cleaning specialists so they can examine the roof's condition. If repairs or replacements are necessary, they will inform you accordingly.

    Don't worry about the vehicles on your property, as our technicians will remove them out of the way before checking out the roof.

    Step 2- we scrape the roof

    Our roof cleaners have access to expert equipment to reach and clean the roof: ladders or mobile scaffold platforms and scraping tools to remove moss, debris, dirt, and buildup residue from the roof. They also use tailored shingled scrapers to match variously shaped shingles.

    We include cleaning the gutters with our roof cleaning service. If you want to use the soil and moss from cleaning as mulch for your garden, we can keep it for you. Otherwise, we will responsibly remove it from your property.

    Step 3- we use low-pressure steam cleaning

    One of the most effective cleaning methods for roofs is steam cleaning. We avoid walking on the roof and employ lance or scaffolding. The low-pressure steam cleaning will remove all stains and dirt from a roof while being gentle on the roof shingles. We also remove algae, stains, lichens and their roots with steam cleaning.

    Step 4- we apply biocide

    Biocide kills algae, moss, fungi, mould, and organic substances. The biocide is also known as the bio-wash and keeps at distance harmful organics. Our technicians apply the mould inhibitor and the biocide treatment has long-lasting effects. The method is efficient, fast working, and removes even the most difficult stains.

    Step 5- clean up

    Roof cleaning is messy; our technicians clean the property and leave it as it was before their arrival.

    How long does it take to clean roof tiles?

    The length of the cleaning procedures depends mainly on the size and the roof's level of dirtiness. If the roof is severely covered by moss, we will need more time to remove it than we would with a slightly moss-covered roof. The cleaning process also depends on access to the roof tiles. We use extendable poles to clean the roof from the ground level. If need be, we use cherry pickers-- the cleaning process will go slow this way, though.

    With most jobs, our technicians at Spratton Window Cleaners need 1 to 3 days to clean the roof. Surprisingly, the clean-up afterwards takes us a lot of time. We will safely take mossy and algae buildup away from your property. When we handle the bleach and biocide, we are extra careful so we don't pollute anything. We have instilled a strict safety protocol and we follow it religiously.

    At Spratton Roof Cleaners, we clean as fast and as safe as possible roofs of any material and condition. We seek to make your experience with us a stress-free and pleasant experience.

    Contact Spratton Roof Cleaners for moss removal

    Moss are flowerless small plants that don't have roots and expand in globs (eco-friendly). They need a damp setting to grow, which is why they're typical for shady areas.

    We include moss removal with our roof cleaning jobs and encourage all our clients to opt for it. Here's why:

    Improve Appearance

    Moss may give a whimsical feel to a house, but only if there's not much. Roof Cleaning Spratton will remove moss from roofs and provide a fresh feel to your home.

    A nice-looking roof makes a house look good and even increases the selling price-- consider the service if you want to move house!

    Reduce damage to tiles

    Holes and cracks in the tiles develop due to lichen (white spots). Removing white lichen is a tedious process; you will need to wait a few months until you see the results of chemical treatments. If need be, we will also employ pressure washing to remove it.

    No more moss cleaning

    As moss falls on the driveway or patio, you must sweep them every few days. When there's a lot of moss on the roof, it can fall and make you sweep the driveway daily. Moss may already clog the gutters and cause dampness and drainage issues. Professional moss removal is the best solution to all of these problems.

    Fewer roof repairs

    Roof moss will impede roofers from repairing your roof when necessary. Severe roof problems could be lying under large amounts of moss-- repairs cannot be done without removing moss first.

    As a responsible homeowner, you should include roof cleaning on your to-do list. We don't recommend you do it yourself but hire professionals for it. Contact our team at Spratton Cleaners for further details about our services and rates.

    We leave the roofs clean and in excellent condition as we only use soft washing methods (chemical cleaning) and pressure washing. We choose the cleaning method for your roof depending on its age, condition, level of dirtiness, and budget. When you call us, one of our representatives will give you all the information you need. Since our technicians are in the know about roofs, they will examine the roof before cleaning. If they find issues with the roof, they will inform you and suggest the best approach to solve the problems.

    How much does the roof cleaning service cost?

    The final price for roof cleaning services depends on the roof's age, size, and level of dirtiness. The complexity of the cleaning process will weigh in too. When you contact us, we can provide you with a quote for our roof cleaning service. We examine the roof with Google Earth to get the best cleaning results. It gives us accurate roof dimensions and tells us about the roof's condition.

    Domestic dwellings

    Typically, domestic roof cleaning services range between £450-£1450. Residential roof cleaning jobs are more affordable than commercial roof cleaning.

    Businesses

    Commercial roofs are made with materials that require less time, energy, and work than residential roofs. Contact us for information about our methods and rates. 

    Frequently Asked Questions about Roof Cleaning

    Will the roofer walk around the roof?

    Our technicians use ladders or mobile scaffold platforms to avoid walking on the roof. Walking on the roof can cause accidents and permanent damage to the roof. Our technicians at Spratton Window Cleaners employ lance technology so that they never walk on the roof. We know how to access the tricky areas (around the chimney) and leave every square foot of the roof spotless.

    What are the black spots on your roof?

    Commonly, Gloeocapsa magma is what causes the black spots on your roof. It's a black organic substance that feeds on shingle materials and causes permanent damage to the roof. The algae make the roof reflect the sun's heat and not absorb it, so the house no longer gets warm. The heating system will work more frequently and lead to enormous energy bills.

    The team at Spratton Roof Cleaners removes the black spots from the roof and leaves the roof cleaner than ever.

    The cleaners at Spratton Roof Cleaners have an excellent reputation. Most will mention our name when you ask your friends about roof cleaning Spratton. We carefully select our cleaning methods and solutions so that we clean roofs without damaging them. It's what we know best.
