Where possible we use a jet wash to remove the moss and lichen. Not always is a jet wash a practical and safe way to clean a roof. Sometimes we can only treat and scrape. This is also a very effective method however it doesn’t clean so deeply. However it is still a very effective cleaning method and with a yearly sodium hypochlorite treatment this will prevent the growth of moss and lichen helping to keep your roof clean.
We treat the reef with a sodium hypochlorite treatment that helps remove the lichen and kills it off to help prevent it coming back. The sodium hypochlorite treatment otherwise known as soft washing penetrates and eats away at your moss and lichen cleaning your tiles over a period of time. Usually the cleaning process carries on up to 6 months after the treatment has been performed.
What’s the cost of this service.
Typically the cost of this service is based on the size of the property and accessibility of the roof. Your initial quotation will include a thorough clean of the surface of your roof. And if you wish to have a yearly treatment this is usually 50% less than the initial quotation.
The yearly treatment process is to treat the entire roof with the sodium hypochlorite solution otherwise known as soft washing. This prevents the lichen and moss returning. Keeping your roof is clean and your gutters clear for longer.
