The Benefits of Roof Cleaning

Roof cleaning is an essential part of home maintenance, however many homeowners don’t realise the importance of it until their roof starts to show signs of wear and tear.

Cleaning the Roof Makes It Last Longer

In the UK regular roof cleaning has several benefits. First and foremost, it helps to prolong the life span of your roof. Dirt, debris and algae can cause damage to your roof over a period of time. This will lead to leaks and other costly repairs, so by cleaning your roof regularly, you can prevent these issues from happening and save yourself money in the long run!

Improves Your Home’s Energy Efficiency

Cleaning your roof can also improve the energy efficiency of your home. A dirty roof can absorb more heat, which can cause your home to become warmer and make it more difficult to keep cool in the summer months. By cleaning your roof, you can help reduce your energy bills and make your home more comfortable to live in.

If your roof is full of moss, especially in the valleys, it can cause issues in your loft space. Sweating may happen which is caused by poor roof water run off, due to excessive moss and leaves being trapped on the roof, especially in the valleys and eves.

Protects the Environment

At Clear Vision, we also want to help protect the environment. As homeowners and professional cleaners, the impact of replacing a roof that is still in great condition has its impact on the planet by adding premature waste to landfill sites. Mossy and discoloured tiles invariably have 40+ years more life left in them, before the need to replace them.

Having a traditional roof that is covered in moss is not the same as having a green roof. Traditional clay or concrete tiles are not designed to have excessive moss build up, so it is recommended they are cleaned at regular intervals.

What Tools Do We Use?

Roof scraping for moss removal in the UK involves using a profiled scraping blade and a wired brush.  This allows us to manually pull away loose dirt, moss and debris from your roof. This method is suited to most roofs and is recommended for older style roofs or more delicate tiles. This method is very time consuming and physically demanding on the team.

When you choose Clear Vision, you don’t have to worry about any of these issues. We offer an external cleaning service and a residential gutter cleaning service that uses modern techniques to help remove the gutter, giving your roof a sparkling finish.
