ROOF CLEANING SWANSEA
Swansea roof cleaning services covering Swansea and Wales
Transform the look of your roof
The appearance of many otherwise well kept properties is often let down by the condition of the roof.
However It is possible to transform the look of the roof with some basic cleaning and maintenance. This can often also increase the lifespan of the roof as Moss, Lichen and other biological growth can actually eat away at the surface of the roof. Moss growth may push apart tiles and slates causing water creep, destroy pointing, and eventually cause leaks.
It is important however to take care when choosing a contractor to clean your roof as there are some very important considerations.
Can the work be completed without causing damage to the roof?
The use of high pressure washers and walking on the surface of the roof by untrained and inexperienced individuals can cause damage and rather than extending, could reduce the lifespan and performance of your roof.
We are experienced in cleaning all kinds of roof surfaces from a membrane roof on a commercial building or a Slate roof on your cottage.
Each type of roof surface and staining or growth requires an individual approach as the methods, products and equipment need to be tailored to the individual roof surface and the type of staining.
We employ the use of specialist equipment to remove the biological growth such as moss and staining from fungus and other sources. these include special long reach plastic scrapers, chemical pumps, low pressure steam and rinsing equipment, plus a good old fashioned stiff brush.
Will the cleaning be effective?
Simply cleaning away moss, Lichen, Fungus and other biological growth may make the roof look clean for a short time, however this growth may be back in very short order. The reason for this is that these growths have a root system, often this is microscopic and invisible to the naked eye.
Just pressure washing away moss for example does not deal with the root of the problem and the moss will return very quickly. That is why we would recommend treating the roof also to kill off any roots and spores and completely sanitise the roof surface.
We use specialist chemicals and biocides to clean the roof and also kill off any biological growth such as moss and Lichen.
Can the work be done safely?
Safety is a major consideration when working on roofs due to working at height regulations and the inherent risks of working on covered roof surfaces. Unfortunately several people have been killed and many more prosecuted for unsafe working practices in recent years.
Health and safety is always our first priority when we undertake a roof cleaning project. We undertake and supply a robust Risk Assessment before any work commences and the directors always supervise the work to ensure dynamic management of the project.

Low pressure cleaning system
Biological growth can cause unsightly staining on a roof and can greatly reduce its lifespan. Moss growth in particular can erode and damage many surfaces and cause problems with blocked gutters and damp ingress.
High pressure washers can be very damaging to many roof surfaces, so we can clean and treat your roof using a low pressure cleaning system that will thoroughly clean and disinfect the surface.
