Many roofs and other exterior areas are prone to moss growth, sides which face north or east where there is less sunlight are particularly susceptible as moss growth can thrive due to the perfect environmental conditions. Moss growth can start in one place and quickly spread to other parts of the property especially on the roof areas and sometimes even cover the entire roof. We offer fully comprehensive moss and algae removal and cleaning services in Cambridge, Cambridgeshire and surrounding areas. If moss is left untreated it can cause serious issues for the property and its owner, below are some typical side effects moss growth on a roof can cause:
It's important not to overstate the risks of moss growth but if left untreated it can seriously damage many types of exterior materials for example roof tiles and concrete paths.
When removing moss from exterior surfaces a traditional cleaning method that has been widely used is high powered pressure washing equipment. The problem with using high pressure equipment is that it can damage exterior surfaces and cause parts to become loose. In fact when it comes to removing moss from roof tiles the last thing you would want to use is high pressure cleaning as it can damage and cause unforeseen issues.
We don't take the approach of using high pressure cleaning. Instead our approach is to use softwashing and the power of science utilising specifically designated disinfectant blends which have been designed to eliminate non vascular types of infectants such as moss and have a proven track record of doing so. In situations where lichen isn't present we can remove moss using extendible tools eg: brushes and hoes.
During the quotation we conduct a thorough inspection and risk assessment. Before cleaning we begin preparation work which includes protecting nearby grass, plants, borders and furniture etc.
