If you’re like me, the days of climbing up on roofs in Addlestone are few and far between but this is also reason enough to pay more attention and get up there to check it out. In other words, the longer you ignore or leave this area untreated, the more it wears and deteriorates until it eventually stops keeping out the rain.

But how exactly can you clean the roof and what chemicals or machines can you use?

Let’s take a look at how to clean your roof and everything you need to get started with the job:

How to Clean Your Roof – Jet Wash of Chemicals?

As you may know, I’m a big fan of the jet wash and use it at every given opportunity. When the drains or gutters need blasting, it makes an appearance and pressure washers can work wonders on patios, decking, driveways and various jobs around the home.

For this reason, the best way to clean your roof in Addlestone is with a sprayer and some cleaning solution.

But before we look any further into the process: what might you find up there that needs to be removed in the first place? So we are your local roof moss and roof cleaning company offering a great service.

Detached, semi detached or terraced? What area in the UK are you located/ 1, 2 or 3 floors? What is the pitch like? Good access all round, or not? will the operative need a cherry picker? Here is a well written price guide to answer the question how much does roof cleaning cost?

Why do you need to keep your roof in Addlestone clean? The mold, mildew, algae. Lichen and moss need to be removed from your roof. Metal roofs can develop oxidation which also be removed. By cleaning your roof, you prolong its life and function. Often it can be the north and west sides of your roof that get less sun and heat, the shady sides causing soot, biomass and dirt build up this then affects the amount of heat the house or building absorbs.

What is the best method to clean my roof? A nice clean and efficient roof can be achieved using Sodium Percarbonate or bleach solution. Or other commercial cleaning products that maybe available on the market. Authorities like the national federation of roofing contractors NFRC or the ARMA in the US recommends using a 50/50 solution of Sodium Hypochlorite at 12.5% this is chiefly used as a swimming pool cleaner which can be purchased at certain farm outlets or even on buy sodium hypochlorite on Amazon. Mix it half and half with water, use your discretion of course and consult an expert if you chose to clean your own roof in this way. Heard of Zinc Sulphate? Research this and look at Zinc strips being installed at the peak of your roof to reduce regrowth.

What tools do I need to clean my roof? Why not purchase an electric roof sprayer that is normally used to spray crops, they will have a hardy pump that can tolerate bleach, this will kill any organic growth build up on your roof, like algae, bacteria, fungus, moss, mildew and so on. This method is called soft washing as opposed to using a high powered jet washer or pressure washer. Any pump with more than 100 psi can be harmful to the tiles. Different tips that attach to the low pressure lance can be used to reach the peak of your roof safely without having to climb up onto the roof, and another spray tip which produces a fan effect for the lower levels, and of course a good water source to rinse off the Sodium Hypochlorite mix.

Other roof treatments we can utilize have the same effect as the Biocide but will also clean the roof and make it look new.
