Moss removal will also have a huge benefit on the gutters as moss will be dropping off the roof surface and into the gutters causing blockages.
Once moss is removed your gutters work more efficiently as water is able to flow freely down into the drainage systems rather than sitting against the tiles causing damp and mould and of course your property will look much more attractive adding that all important ‘kerb appeal’.
Remember, roof cleaning will extend the lifespan of your roof and help the roof stay more functional for a longer period of time.
The team at Bright Roof are highly trained professionals and will bring your roof back to it's former glory.
There are several different methods used when cleaning a roof.
We are going to go into a little more detail with the Soft Washing method.
Unlike pressure washing a roof, the Soft wash process is a non pressure roof cleaning method with the application of treatments to kill any moss, algae, fungi and lichens which seep into the organic growths and kill from within without needed the brute force of a pressure washer to remove. That is not to say a pressure washer doesn't have its place in the exterior cleaning sector and in some cases is needed.
Firstly, we would carry out a visual roof survey to identify the contaminates growing on your home roof and undertake a risk assessment to ensure all health and safety is applied by.
THE PROCESS -
If moss is needed to be removed we would cover areas around the roof with suitable covering/tarpaulin ready for the moss removing process, then start to remove the deposits of moss manually using extendable hand held tools.
Once we are satisfied the bulk of the moss has been removed manually, we would then apply the soft wash detergent to the tiles using water fed poles, this is when the soft wash gets to work and starts to kill any remaining moss, algae and lichens that are still on the roof. The amount of treatment applied depends on the roofs contamination of moss, algae and other fungi’s
When we have completed the roof clean, we then clear out the gutters removing all remaining debris that may have fallen when cleaning the roof.
All of our staff are fully trained, highly qualified and insured to be working at height.
Soft washing your roof will restore it and help protect it from regrowth of moss in future months / years.
Once the roof clean is completed, we would then wash down the walls and windows of the property, if there is a conservatory, we would ensure there is no debris remaining on there and would clean the grounds and surrounding areas of the property. Our team will also empty any debris that may have fallen into the gutters.
All debris will be removed from your property, leaving it clean, fresh and spotless.

Roof moss is just a cosmetic issue so it can be ignored for now
If moss is not cleaned off of your roof tiles it has the ability to shorten the lifespan of your roof, remember, moss is a living organism that needs food to continue to grow, their favourite food? Yes, your roof tiles. This will soon result in general deterioration of your roof. Keeping your roof free of moss growth will save you a costly roof replacement.
