Roof moss removal in south London

Gleam Team clear and clean moss from roof tiles manually using specially adapted tool attachments fitted to long reaching extendable poles. We then scrape the moss away to ensure the safest and most thorough roof cleaning.

We do not clean roofs using high powered jet washing due to the inherent problems that come with it, and in accordance with leading roof tile manufacturers advice.

The UK’s largest manufacturer, Marley Tiles, specifically warn against jet washing roofs, stating…

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 building products and tiles manufacturer FORTICRETE and NATIONAL FEDERATION OF ROOFING CONTRACTORS.

Furthermore, we are experienced roof cleaners and we also recognise the other pitfalls and dangers of pressure washing roofs such as:

  • likelihood of damaging or dislodging tiles
  • ingress of water into attic space
  • huge mess caused resulting in moss and dirt flying all over your property, your neighbours and nearby roads, pavements etc
  • significant extra cost to hire a cherry picker which is essential in order to direct water down the roof. If using a jet washer from gutter line or even scaffold the water would be aimed upwards and be forced under tiles into the loft. Cherry pickers typically cost approx £150 per day plus insurances and delivery which greatly adds to the overall  roof cleaning cost.
