Roof Cleaning Cambourne and Roof Moss Removal Cambourne
Cornwall is situated on England’s rugged southwestern tip and is noted for its wild moorland landscapes, its long and varied coastline, attractive villages, and very mild climate. The south coast, dubbed the Cornish Riviera, is home to picturesque harbour villages like Fowey and Falmouth. The north coast is lined with towering cliffs and seaside resorts like Newquay, known for surfing and in St. Austell there is the St Austell Brewery which celebrated its 150th anniversary in 2001.
The damp sea air means moss on roofs is a particular problem in Cornwall and like any external surface, it has a habit of getting dirty. The stains on the roof are not just dirt they are actually a bacteria called Gleocapsa Magma. We have found that this is the main culprit for most of the roof staining throughout Cornwall and the towns of Truro, Padstow, and Penzance. Whilst Mildew and algae are unsightly they are not as destructive as some of the more aggressive bacteria and fungus. These algae, moulds, mildews, bacteria, lichens and mosses directly decompose and break down roofing materials on many properties across Cornwall.
A clean roof will keep your property value higher in Cornwall because the kerb appeal will be much higher and the roof will last longer and save you money in the long run. Algae and mould can
also cause allergic reactions and other health issues so removing them from any part of your home is a good idea. Professional roof cleaning can restore the beauty of your home, so before getting estimates for a new roof call us and see what we can do for you.
We have also undertaken a pilot scheme for soft washing roofs in the smaller towns of Fowey and Camelford. This ‘soft washing’ process is very popular in the USA and means a roof can be cleaned from ground level. As there is no need for full access to a roof this means any repairs are virtually non-existent. The roof can be cleaned and a biocide added to help prevent future re-growth of moss.
