London Roof Cleaning Methods
A Softwashing roof clean approach is a safe and gentle cleaning method involving the manual removal of moss, algae and bacteria using specially mixed chemicals and a biocidal treatment which prevents the re-growth of moss, lichen and other pollutants which can protect your roof for anywhere between 5 – 10 years (depending on environmental factors etc)
We will on occasion also offer Pressure washing followed by a biocidal treatment. It is extremely important to note that whilst pressure washing can be an extremely effective roof cleaning method, there are many surfaces where it can be damaging and as such should only be used by professionals who understand when and where it is appropriate. If you want your roof painting then we have to pressure wash your roof first otherwise the roof paint guarentee is invalid.
