Our tailored solutions for cleaning Plymouth roofs

We use two main roof cleaning methods to carry out effective roof cleaning. The first is steam cleaning, a method that utilises high-temperature steam to cut through grime. It’s an eco-conscious choice, as there is no need to use harmful chemicals. It relies solely on superheated steam which reaches a temperature of 150-degrees celsius

Another gentle option at our disposal is the Softwash system. This lightly applies a solution customised for your roof material that cleans unsightly marks and restores your roof’s original colour.

Beyond just cleaning, we can apply a bactericide to keep your rooftop clear of new growth for longer.

Eco-friendly steam cleaning for your Plymouth roof

steam cleaning lifts moss and debris from any roof

Roof steam cleaning harnesses the power of pure water. It is an efficient steam cleaning service designed for your particular type of roof. This method leverages high a temperature of 150-degrees to tackle even the most stubborn stains, ensuring a comprehensive and eco-conscious clean.

Steam cleaning respects the environment since it doesn’t leave any harmful residues. Your roof gets a thorough clean, while nature stays untouched by chemicals.

Protection for your greenery

You can relax in the knowledge that the roof steam cleaning process is harmless to your garden. Without the use of chemicals, there is no threat to plants or the local ecosystem. The steam turns to water and simply runs off into the drainage system.

Suited for delicate slate

Steam cleaning is especially suited to slate roofs, which benefit immensely from the gentle touch. Roof steam cleaning effortlessly removes moss and weather stains without any abrasion, leaving your slate clean but undamaged.

Roof cleansing with the Softwash system

Softwash is a gentle method that revitalises your roof’s look without harsh pressure washing. The specialised solution penetrates stubborn stains, allowing the original colour of the roofing material to shine through. Unsightly mould, moss, and weather stains effectively disappear, eradicating all discolouration. 

The minor streaks that may remain will diminish gradually over the weeks following the Softwash treatment.

The Softwash system provides:

  • A tailor-made approach for each roof type
  • A system which avoids tile damage with its mild approach
  • A clearing away of stains, therefore restoring your roof’s original colour

Hand-scraping moss from roof surfaces

In some cases, where the moss growth on the roof is very heavy, hand-scraping the moss from the roof might be needed before any other treatment is carried out. This is usually the case when the Softwash cleaning approach is chosen. Steam cleaning can usually remove moss from the roof without scraping.

Whatever the case, we can manually remove moss and lichen from your roof without harming your roof tiles. This is then followed by one of our other roof cleaning treatments.

Across all offered services, your rooftop’s integrity and appearance are our foremost concern, ensuring a professional and conscientious cleaning experience.

Post-cleaning bactericide protection for your roof

plymouth roofs suffer from a damp climate and need regular cleaning

To extend the time your roof remains clean, we can also apply a protective bactericide. This added measure kills the spores of moss and algae, lessening thew chance of moss regrowth. By tackling these spores, we prolong the period your roof remains spotless, reducing the necessity for regular maintenance. 

This cleaning approach achieves the following for your roof:

  • Prevents quick re-growth of moss and algae
  • Keeps your roof pristine for longer
  • Suits every roof type, managing individual cleaning needs effectively

Your roof’s care is our priority, and our selection of treatment methods guarantees a tailored approach for enduring results.

Enhance your home with professional roof maintenance

Roof cleaning isn’t just about improving the appearance of your roof. A moss-free and well-maintained roof is crucial for averting potential structural deterioration. Moss and other debris can hasten damage by allowing water to seep beneath the tiles. In some cases this can mean having to replace roof joists or even an entire roof replacement.

By investing in our service, you’re not just cleaning; you’re preserving your home’s value and structural integrity.

Comprehensive cleaning for every roof type in Plymouth

There are many different roofing materials, and we have made it our business to become experts in cleaning all the different types. The main types of roofing materials are traditional tiles, slate, and concrete.

Refreshing your tiled roof

If your home boasts a classic tiled roof, it’s essential to keep it maintained. Accumulation of moss and dirt can undermine not just the appearance, but the integrity of the roof, allowing moisture to penetrate and damage the structure. Our approach usually includes careful moss removal by hand, followed by a gentle, low-pressure steam clean that eradicates stubborn residues and stains, leaving your tiles pristine without the use of harsh methods.

To clean traditional tiled roofs we can also use the Softwash system. We will advise you as to which approach is best for your particular roof.

Cleaning slate roofs throughout Plymouth

The natural beauty and resilience of slate roofing demand a cleaning process that’s both effective and delicate. Our team excels in steam cleaning, a method that is perfect for removing accumulated grime without risking the integrity of the slate. In Plymouth, slate roofs are a common sight, and we have become experts at cleaning roofs made from natural slate, preserving the appearance and maintaining the condition.

Revitalising Concrete Roofs

Concrete roofs are known for their longevity and sturdiness, yet their porous nature makes them vulnerable to persistent staining. Our steam cleaning technique penetrates these pores to lift and remove dirt, restoring your roof to its original hue. Trust in our local expertise to provide a cleaning solution that does the job, whether a residential roof or one on a business. No matter the roof cleaning project, the results are uniformly impressive.
