Other Roof Cleaning / Treatments
Benefits Of Moss Treating
Some surfaces can be difficult to access and clean, this is where a moss treatment fits in perfectly as it can be used on a variety of surfaces without causing damage or staining.
Irregular surfaces such as Caravans, Caravan fly overs, glass, skylights, chimneys, pool heating, imitation Iron tiles, walls are suited to moss treatments, as it won’t cause any damage to the surface.
Pressure cleaning some of these surfaces could cause unnecessary damage such as:
Pool heating can be loosened and blown apart.
The seals around windows can be damaged, causing leaks.
Dints in imitation tiles can be caused as they are hard to walk on.
Rendered walls, timber cladding can have paint removed and be chipped.
Soft Application & Prevents Regrowth
Moss Roof Treatment is perfect for more fragile surfaces due to its soft application that kills the moss spores and black mould that grows on the surface.
Moss Treatment Works Alongside Other Roof Works
Moss Roof Treatment is an ideal application to apply to different surfaces that cannot be high pressure cleaned. Moss roof treatment is gentle on the surface as it is applied under medium pressure.
A clean roof helps to make sure that the water is diverted/running down the roof into the gutters and not into the roof cavity.
Building an extension on the home can be costly and sometimes the roof is overlooked and left last, by treating the roof at the start of the home renovations will ensure that the roof will be clean and look tidy at the end of the renovations.

Progressive Results After Moss Roof Treatment
What happens to moss after being moss treated:
Within the first 2-3 weeks the moss, mould & lichen changes to a yellow/brown colour signifying that it is dying/dead.
Slowly, more and more moss & lichen will begin to break down, wash away and reveal a cleaner surface. It crumbles away and washes away into the gutters.
It will break down the black staining on the tiles to show the tile colour.
Once the moss is dead on the roof other repairs can proceed. The treatment will continue to break down the moss during and after any additional roof works.

Moss Treatment Is Better Than Pressure Cleaning

Pressure cleaning will damage pool heating, moss treatment is gentle and won’t disturb or damage.
Moss Roof Treatment is gentle on walls, timber cladding and render, won’t remove paint or stain.
Pressure cleaning caravans and buses used for camping is not a great idea as you can damage window seals and removes paint.
Moss Roof Treatment is suited to more fragile surfaces like glass or iron tiles.
Pressure cleaning can out holes in skylights, depending on age on skylight.
Moss Treatment removes black mould stains that pressure cleaning struggles to remove.
