Moss, algae & lichen removal
The importance of Moss, algae and litchen removal
Most roofs will experience moss or lichen growth, and small patches of growth are usually not a problem. If the moss growth is allowed to develop further, it can become a problem for your roof.
During our process, your roof will be entirely deep cleaned using specialist cleaning equipment. After the deep clean, moss prevention biocide will be applied to the roof with specialist spraying equipment.
Roof Moss: Why is it a problem?
Moss acts like a sponge absorbing large amounts of moisture and resulting in your roof being constantly wet. If this moisture travels underneath the tiles, it could rot the wooden components of the roof, threatening structural integrity and leading to costly repairs
The main benefit of a pitched roof is the easy drainage of precipitation due to the sloped angle. However, moss can obstruct the path of the water by absorbing the moisture instead of letting it drain away.
Moss can break off and fall into gutters or downpipes, blocking your drainage system. If this issue is not spotted, it could potentially lead to parts of your drainage system requiring replacement
Roof moss could potentially attract bird and insect life, which is not beneficial for the aesthetic value of your roof, e.g. defactation. Birds can also break up moss, dislodging these pieces and causing them to drop into your gutters or downpipes.
Roof tiles with water ingress can more easily be damaged by frost.
