How we clean roofs in Medway, Gravesend and South London

Roof Moss Removal

We start by surrounding the house with tarpaulin to collect moss as it falls off the roof.

We then cover downpipes to prevent them getting blocked.

We use long reach extendable poles with specialist wire brushes and scraper attachments for the effective removal of all moss on the roof.

If the roof is suitable for using roof ladders we may also use them to access the roof and clean manually close up.

After cleaning we apply long lasting inhibitor to prevent moss regrowth.

Manual removal of moss from roof – we do NOT jet wash roofs

There are many good reasons not to jet wash roof tiles, but you don’t have to take our word for it – what do the experts say?

Marley Tiles are the largest manufacturer of roof tiles in the UK and they specifically warn against it saying

“The use of high powered jet washes is not recommended as it can damage the surface of the slate or tile, thus reducing its expected life considerably.”

This view is also endorsed by FORTICRETE and the NATIONAL FEDERATION FOR ROOFING CONTRACTORS. Click for further information .

If this doesn’t convince you our other practical reasons based on knowledge and experience are:

  • high pressure water is almost certain to damage or dislodge roof tiles
  • water may enter the roof space underneath tiles
  • blasting moss and dirt from a surface 10 metres above ground level WILL cause a horrible mess with the debris flying all over your garden, driveway, neighbouring properties, nearby pavements and roads
  • incurs unnecessary additional costs as hiring of a cherry picker is essential – the operator must ensure water is aimed downwards. If used at gutter level high pressure water will lift tiles and flood the attic.

For this reason we only clear moss away from roof tiles using manual methods such as specialist nylon fibre scraping tools attached to long reach extension poles able to access all areas of the roof. We use nylon rather than wire brushes to prevent damage and scratching to the tile surface.

This method of removing modd from roof tiles is more labour intensive and time consuming but we still charge LESS than roof cleaning companies who jet wash.

Cleaning roofs with power washing would be a very easy option to choose because it’s faster and easier for us, but we know it’s not in our customers best interests and that’s why we don’t do it. Simple as that.
