Roof Cleaning the gentle way!
We use a technique called ‘soft-washing’ where we apply a biocide to your roof tiles which kills moss and algae very quickly!
“why don’t you use a pressure washer?”
We could, but most of the roofs in Moray and in fact the highlands in general are concrete tiles which have a dense waterproof outer glaze. However there’s a high risk that using a pressure washer will cut though the glaze and allow moisture to enter the inner porous section – Not good for your tiles or your pocket!
Why you shouldn’t use a pressure washer continued…
In addition to the risk of damaging your tiles (if they are concrete), pressure washing, although fast, doesn’t kill the spores which is why pressure washed roofs get re-infested with moss so quickly.
So how long does it take?
After the initial clean (and most roofs are treated in one day) we simply allow the elements to wash the dead moss and algae off the roof. Then as a precaution we come back and give your gutters and downpipes a clean – all part of the price!
