Roof Cleaning

Roof Cleaning Roof Cleaning
We are often asked will pressure washing move the tiles? No as the weight per square metre for concrete tiles is around 70kg slate and small clay tiles around 35kg and then they are nailed or clipped in place with the tile above overlapping the tile below. The roof tiles will look lighter in colour after the cleaning not only due to the removal of the dirt but also due to the effects of the sun over the years where the Ultraviolet rays break down the chemical bonds and thus fade the tiles Once the roof is cleaned the biocide that we use will keep it moss free for several years however further biocide treatments must be applied to keep the roof free from moss lichens every 2-3 years dictated by the environment you live in.

Roof Cleaning Low Pressure System

Vortex Low Pressure Controlled Volume Roof Cleaning System VORTEX Nozzle projects a low-pressure swirl of water to clean the roof tile surface gently and effectively. The vortex Cleaning System is specially designed to deliver a constant flow of low pressure spinning water that quickly breaks down grime and effectively removes moss,lichen and algae.
Vortex Super Heated Water Roof Cleaning System This super-heated water takes algae, moss and lichen off the surface with ease whilst killing off bacteria and spores which eliminates the need for a biocide however we still apply a quality biocidal wash - the residual biocide" effect helps prevent re-colonisation by biological growths, ensuring your surfaces remains cleaner for longer. It is a spectacularly, effective system and has no negative environmental effects. The system works on a variable combination of high temperatures and low pressure. Temperatures can reach up to 130°C at the nozzle end and the operator can vary the temperature and pressure according to the type of grime or substrate.
Why Us ? We Take Care of your Property
Softwash Roof Cleaning is a non pressure chemical roof cleaning system. Softwashing works via a chemical which is sodium hypochlorite mixed with a surfactant or DDAC products all of which are reported to be biodegradable and safe obviously when used according to the manufacture’s instruction. The roof has to be manually scraped or brushed for some systems then the chemical applied. Scraping the roof if metal implements are used will cause some surface erosion however there are plastics tools that can be used? Brushing or power brushing will remove moss but not the lichens. Roofs with a steeper pitch or fragile period clay tiles for instance - the preparation is carried out from the eaves using bespoke telescopic tools. Softwashing with sodium hypochlorite and surfactant will give an instant clean that day but the lichens will still be obvious on the roof and can take up to a year to fall away also moss may still be on the roof seen as white particles as rinsing does not wash away all the moss but it will come away over time. This clean should be accompanied with a biocide treatment. Softwashing DDAC product take serval months to a year to clean the roof after the initial scrape again lichens will be obvious until they fall away. Softwashing uses very low-pressure pumps around 3.5bar about the same as your garden hose to spray the chemical mix on your roof. Softwashing does have its place in the roof cleaning industry however it is not our first choice for roof cleaning although we do use these systems. This system will clean your roof but over time but if you ask any Roof Coating Manufacturer how the roof should be prepared for a roof coating and they will tell you that it must be pressure washed.
Softwash Roof Cleaning System 1 The application of a Softwash solution (Sodium Hypochlorite) This system requires one to two treatments of the solution rinsing between treatments. This is then followed by further rinsing before the application of a premium biocide. Softwash is a highly effective, sodium hypochlorite based softwash biocide exterior hard surface cleaner which does not bioaccumulate in addition the powerful surfactant that is used is fully biodegradable. System 2 The application of a premium biocide after de- mossing which is left over time to clean the roof which can take up to 1 year. Biocidal Wash is Ph neutral, and is unaffected by hard or mineralised water. Its "residual biocide" effect helps prevent re- colonisation by biological growths, ensuring your surfaces remain cleaner for longer. Protection of the planted environment: The active ingredient can leave a discolouration at the point of contact with plant leaves and flowers. Early rinsing has good results but some protection may be needed.
The Importance of Quality Products.
The importance of a quality biocidal wash equates to the longevity of the roof clean. The Biocidal Wash Cotec use is a high quality, professional-grade product that can be used in conjunction with power washing as a post- treatment or as a standalone softwash. The product is fully biodegradable, does not bio-accumulate and is also PH neutral thus safe for children and pets once dry. It also contains no bleach or acids and is harmless to all know building materials. MOA The biocidal wash soaks deep into porous surfaces – killing the micro-organisms These actions extend the initial cleans longevity keeping your roof cleaner for longer.

We would advise Low Pressure Washing for roof cleaning but in some instances Softwashing should be used but the choice is the customers. Low Pressure Washing is the only system we give a three-year moss free guarantee with however, we have just noted a few things below which you can use to make your choice. Pressure washing has been having some bad press in part generated from American roof cleaning and the rest from the Softwashing promoters that want to sell their products to the trade or public. In American a large proportion of roof covers are Asphalt roofing shingles (looks like Green Mineral Felt) as the name suggest are made from asphalt reinforced with fiberglass mat with a stone granule surface. Using pressure cleaning on these products would have detrimentally effects as the stone granules are only just set into the asphalt thus would be removed by this type of cleaning also the force of the water could rip the tiles strips. In the UK we have Concrete, Slate, Fibre Cement, Clay and a granular lightweight metal roof tile which are used on conservatory roof replacement or where a lightweight roof is required. Low Pressure Cleaning Pressure cleaning works by forcing a certain volume of water at a set pressure against the surface. The pressure which is used by some companies to complete this task is around 3500-4000psi which is too high and not necessary. Moss falls away from the roof readily that’s why you have to continually brush it up so using low pressure or super-heated water (500psi at 130 °C) is all that is required. This system is often used to clean more delicate stone-although a more expensive for roof cleaning than the standard pressure wash it will complete the job just the same as long as it is accompanied with a quality biocide. In tests we measured the tile before and after the clean the tile lost 0.3mm from the surface with the low pressure clean. (grain of sand) Pressure washing leaves the roof looking clean moss free lichen free once work is completed. (What may not be apparent is that nature over time wears away the tile surface) Where would we not use pressure washing certainly on the lightweight metal roof tiles also some rosemary clay tiles and some older roofs with plain tiles wither Marley or Redland.
