Roof Clean and Biocide Treatment

Roof Clean and Moss Clear Pro Biocide Treatment

We asked our Registered Contractor Jordan Doe to contact Mr & Mrs Adams in West Sussex to arrange to survey their roof and provide a quote for it to be cleaned and a biocide treatment to prevent regrowth.  As you can see it is a lovely house but it was being let down by the roof being dirty, apart form the dirt moss and algae are not good for roofs.

As roofs become older, the original protective layer on the face of the roof tile is gradually eroded by the elements. This type of erosion increases the porosity of the tile, allowing moisture to penetrate easily into the roof tiles. Moss will only thrive on damp or wet surfaces, and the moisture retained in the roof tile enables moss spores to establish themselves and become ingrained within the tile. On the majority of properties, it is the North or West facing that experience the greatest problems.
