Roof Cleaning Services and Moss Removal in Welford

Many things count for our comfort at home and having a nice cleaning house is one. The list of household chores is very long and includes tasks inside and outside the house. Washing windows, mowing the lawn, cleaning the gutters, and jet washing the driveaways are just some to name.

Roof cleaning is also, or should be, on this long list. It's not the most complex cleaning job, but it has risks. After all, it's one thing to reach the roof and totally another to use specialized tools to remove moss or algae from it.

Welford Cleaners is a reliable company with a team of experienced and hardworking technicians. They are experts in pressure washing to remove moss and lichens. Our technicians preserve the cleaning results by priming and sealing the roof. Call us today at 01604 279112.

    one stop for roof cleaning: Welford Roof Cleaners!

    before and after moss cleaning

    Welford Window Cleaners is the go-to roof cleaning company for many clients in Welford 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.

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

    If not cleaned regularly, all roofs will be covered in mould, debris, stains, algae, mildew, leaves, and dirt. Let's forget about the weather conditions and air pollutants (especially in urban areas) that alter the roof's looks and structure. You want your roof to last for the longest time so inspect it regularly.

    Algae on roofs make them look bad and worsens the efficiency of tiles and shingles. Black and algae will make a roof unable to absorb solar heat. Therefore, the house won't get warm as before and the heating system will struggle to warm the home. Dirty roofs are a common cause of high energy bills.

    It extends the lifespan of the roof

    When the roof is clean, its materials (shingles and other materials) are protected and last for a long time. Moss and algae can cause severe damage to the roof tile materials. For example, asphalt shingles will curl wet because of the moss covering them. Additionally, they can fall during inclement weather and injure you and your family members. Avoid this situation and hire professionals for regular roof cleaning.

    It's necessary when you have trees around the house

    Leaves, falling branches, debris, and bird droppings will make a roof look dull and alter its protective role. A clean roof works wonders for a house's curb appeal. If there are trees nearby, you should always clean the roof regularly. Otherwise, you risk repair work or even roof replacement--each of these services is much pricier than roof cleaning.

    It improves the curb appeal

    Roof repair is an excellent option if you're looking for an easy and affordable way to make your house attractive. However, you should hire experienced technicians like us. We can make your roof look its best in no time for a competitive rate.

    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 Welford 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 Welford 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 Welford, 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 Welford area, Welford Cleaners is the most trustworthy company to hire.

    The roof cleaning process at Welford 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

    For excellent roof cleaning services, contact our team at Window Cleaners Welford. One of our team members will give you details about our services and rates. Book our service when suits you best as we can come anytime. Keep your roof in excellent condition and hire our roof cleaning specialists. While on the roof, they will carefully examine the roof and decide if repairs or replacements are necessary.

    We will also remove the vehicles from the driveway before we install our equipment.

    Step 2- we scrape the roof

    We use ladders and mobile scaffold platforms to get to the roof. We will remove moss, debris, dirt, and residue with scraping tools and shingle scrapers that match various shingles.

    Gutter cleaning is also necessary with roof cleaning and we include it in our service. If you want to keep the soil and muss for mulch in your garden, we'll happily save it. If not, we can dispose of it from your property.

    Step 3- we use low-pressure steam cleaning

    Out of the cleaning methods for roofs, we consider steam cleaning to be the most effective. We avoid walking on the roof and turn to lances, ladders and scaffolding. To remove stains and dirt, we employ the low steam pressure washer. The method gives results and is gently on the roof's shingles. We also use pressure washing to eliminate algae, lichens, stains, and their roots from the roof.

    Step 4- we apply biocide

    Biocide is highly efficient in killing fungi, mildew, moss, mould, and organic substances. Some technicians name the method "bio-wash". The mould inhibitor is excellent at preventing the regrowth of harmful organics.

    The biocide treatment has long-lasting results as it stays active for several years. We also use it to remove stubborn stains; it's affordable, so opt for it.

    Step 5- clean up

    Roof cleaning is messy, but our cleaners will make sure to remove all debris from your property safely.

    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 Welford 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 Welford 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 Welford 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 Welford 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

    Lichen (the white spots on your roof) can damage the roof, causing holes and cracks in the tiles. Additionally, white lichen does require complex methods to remove. We will use a chemical treatment, which takes a few months to see results. Pressure washing is an additional method we employ to ensure good results.

    No more moss cleaning

    When there's a lot of moss on the roof, it will fall on the driveways, and you will need to sweep daily. The only way to eliminate this task from your list is to hire our professionals for moss removal. The additional problem is that moss might clog the gutters, causing dampness and drainage issues.

    Fewer roof repairs

    When there's a lot of moss on the roof, roofers will ask you to have it removed first. Severe damage to the roof could be lying underneath and only removing it will reveal those issues.

    Be a responsible house owner and don't skip roof cleaning. We strongly recommend you hire professionals. Let one of our team members at Welford Cleaners fill you in on the details about our services and rates.

    Soft and pressure washing are the methods we use the most for roofs. We examine your roof and pick the most appropriate methods, considering its age, size, condition, materials, and level of dirtiness. When you contact us, we can answer all your questions about our methods and rates. Our technicians will also inform you of any necessary repair work or replacement for your roof.

    How much does the roof cleaning service cost?

    The final price for a roof cleaning job depends on many aspects: size, roof condition, materials, and access to the roof are just some of the main ones. We will use Google Earth to get the accurate dimensions of your roof and make an idea about the methods we should operate according to its condition. Please call us as we can give you a free-of-obligation quote over the phone. Our rates are affordable and our work never disappoints.

    Frequently Asked Questions about Roof Cleaning

    Will the roofer walk around the roof?

    Our technicians at Welford Window Cleaners know that it's not safe to walk on the roof. Instead, they employ ladders and scaffold platforms. Walking on the roof can cause accidents and permanent damage to the roof. We make sure to have the safest cleaning procedures and use lance technology. While cleaning the roof, we don't skip the difficult-to-reach areas (around the chimney, for instance) and do everything to leave the whole 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 Welford Roof Cleaners removes the black spots from the roof and leaves the roof cleaner than ever.

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