How we clean roofs in Tonbridge, Tunbridge Wells & Sevenoaks
Roof moss removal
The first stage of our roof cleaning in Tonbridge involves the cleaning of moss from the roof.
We start by surrounding your house with protective tarpaulin which collects falling moss.
We also cover your downpipes to prevent them getting blocked by loose moss.
Depending on the style of your roof and ridges, its steepness and the type of tiles we may access the roof using roof ladders that hook over the ridge and allow close up manual scraping to remove the moss.
If ladders are inappropriate we use long reach extendable poles with specialist moss removal tools that attach to the pole. We then work from the gutter line to clear away all the moss and the length of poles makes all areas accessible.
This method is somewhat time consuming but we believe it is by far and away the safest and most effective method of moss removal and roof cleaning that protects your property from the damage of high pressure jet washing.
Is it OK to pressure wash roof tiles?
Gleam Team do NOT jet wash roofs as this is a recipe for disaster in our experienced opinion. Furthermore, the UK’s leading roof tile manufacturers including Marley Tiles specifically warn against it 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”.
They’re the experts after all, so if it’s good enough for them, it’s good enough for us
FORTICRETE, a major producer of concrete building products, also endorse this view as does the NATIONAL FEDERATION of ROOFING CONTRACTORS.
Other associated risks include:
- Likelihood of damaging or dislodging fragile tiles
- Water entering the attic space
- Huge amount of mess with moss and dirt landing all around your property, your garden, driveway, your neighbours house and garden, the street outside and surrounding areas. On a windy day the distance the dirt travels can be even further.
- Increased costs as cherry picker hire is essential in order to direct water downwards and not up and under roof tiles
Roof moss killer, inhibitor & fungicide
Our moss cleaning service also includes a long lasting roof treatment anti fungicide / biocide to protect against regrowth of all organic spores for at least 12 months – 18 months.
Our roof cleaning and moss removal is available in Sevenoaks, Tunbridge Wells, Tonbridge and other areas of Kent and London including Maidstone, Ashford, Sittingbourne, Sheerness, Medway, Gravesend, Dartford and Bromley.
