Why is a clean roof is such a boon?

A dirty roof may not seem like a huge concern for you, but it can have a number of drawbacks. Not only can it affect the overall value of your home, but its structural integrity is also being put at risk. At Surrey Roof and Gutter Clean our methods are both delicate and effective in removing moss and algae in particular.

Algae and other types of organic materials commonly grow on areas of the roof that are shaded or receive the least amount of sun. Their presence can reduce the life expectancy of your roofing a great deal. The materials are living organisms and many of them that feed off of the roof materials. The deterioration of the surface may be slow, but it is happening. In addition, soot, dirt and biomass can affect how much sunlight is absorbed by the roof and the amount of heat the building can absorb by extension. Contrary to what some might believe, the presence of algae doesn’t necessarily mean that you need new roofing, simply that your current ones could do with a very good clean.

You may see the algae growth on your roof as a simple problem to be solved; however, cleaning is a delicate process that should only be performed by a professional. This is recommended because carelessly charging forward without a plan can lead to you seriously injuring yourself and damaging the surface. Our roof cleaners have the necessary experience and equipment to safely remove the moss and algae. By using manual methods of disposal, combined with our special biocide treatment, we kill and remove all traces. Our methods also help prevent re-growth and leave the surface immaculately clean.

Over the years our reputation for the quick and reliable services we offer has consistently risen, making us a leader in Surrey. Our techniques have only gone from strength to strength, meaning that fantastic results are assured.
