  • The roof of your house protects you from the
    elements. In the bargain, it also bears the brunt
    of the weather outside. 
  • The result is a bruised and battered roof that is
    further plagued by issues like lichen, moss, dirt
    and other corrosive stuff.
  • This is where roof cleaning steps in. Not only is
    it the best way to remove moss from the roof but
    also gets rid of accumulated dirt.
  • We are going to have a look at what roof cleaning
    involves, why is it needed and how can you find a
    quality and affordable roof cleaning service.

What is roof cleaning?
  • Roof cleaning is a process used to remove mould,
    mildew, lichen, algae and moss from the roofs of
    buildings. 
  • There are two tile roof cleaning methods in use
    today.

1. The first is an old-style method where you
manually scrub the dirt and growth that has
accumulated over time. This is done using a
scraper and a brush. 
2. The second method involves using a pressure
washer for the same purpose. 
  • There are also a couple of post-cleaning tasks
    that are recommended by roof cleaning experts. 
  • Talk to commercial roofing contractors for more
    information on choosing the right product to
    treat your roof with.

Why should I go for roof cleaning?
  • Is roof cleaning necessary? The simple answer is
    no. That said, the real reason is more nuanced.
    Problems in your roof because of dirt and moss
    are rare and materialise only if the build-up is
    severe.
  • A good quality roof cleaning service can make
    your roof look brand new, which is fantastic when
    you consider the cost of getting your entire roof
    redone.
  • If you are still sceptical, do a quick web search
    for examples of roof cleaning before and after.
    That will surely power-wash away all your doubts.

5
How much will roof cleaning cost me?
  • The exact roof cleaning and coating cost that you
    will incur depends upon several factors.  This
    includes.

1. The size of your roof. This is why certain
companies offer a roof cleaning cost on
per square foot. 2. Ease of access to your
roof. 3. Your roofs state of repair. 4. The
degree of dirt and moss build-up. 5. Type of your
roof. 6. Type of roof cleaning you need, i.e.
manual scraping or power washing. 7. How do I
select a roof cleaning service?
  • High-quality roof cleaning does not come cheap.
    However, you can aim for a lower price by getting
    quotes from multiple roof cleaning services.

  • How much time does roof cleaning take?

This is yet another aspect that is influenced by
multiple factors. They include, 1. The amount of
dirt, lichen and moss that have accumulated on
your roof over time 2. The degree of
difficulty (or ease) in accessing your roof and
working up there 3. The shape and size of
your roof
  • Can I clean the roof on my own?

Unlike other jobs, roof cleaning is not
complicated and doesnt need a bevy of roof
cleaning equipment. height is what makes roof
cleaning DIY a risky proposition.
Professional roof cleaning services, on the other
hand, employ people who have extensive experience
in working at heights and are well-versed with
the precautions that need to be taken while
cleaning your roof

But how do I avoid a bad roof cleaning contractor?
  • There is always the threat of ending up with a
    contractor or service that overcharges, does a
    haphazard job of cleaning your roof, or worse,
    even damages your dirty but intact roofing.
  • Avoid those who quote unbelievably low. You
    already know the ballpark cost for roof cleaning.
    If a quote undercuts the average by a large
    margin, that is your cue for looking at another
    provider.
  • Check online reviews. A simple search for
    roofing cleaning companies near me will get you
    tens of companies offering the service in your
    vicinity. 
  • Ask your friends, colleagues and neighbours for
    recommendations.
