You don’t want a garden growing on your roof

If you are one of the people who are looking for the most skilled roof cleaning companies Surrey has, then you have come to the right place. Striving for high quality results that are long lasting, we are a company that doesn’t except anything less than the best. With our help dirty, moss or algae covered roofing can be restored.

You might be tempted to think that spouting plants are no threat and cause zero harm. However, anyone who has adopted the out of sight, out of mind mentality needs to rethink their current stance. Should any of these plants appear on your roof, in your gutters, or within the drains, then you must take steps to get rid of them immediately.

For a moment, let us imagine that you’ve gone years without cleaning your vehicle. By now, there would be dirt and dust all over it. It’s the same with your rooftop, but with the exception that seeds carried by the likes of birds, squirrels, and even the wind will have created an unsolicited and flourishing garden. Although this can happen with any roof, ballasted systems in particular are vulnerable because the rock has a habit of capturing dirt.

Blowing dust and saturated leaves can turn into roof fertiliser rapidly, which provides seeds with the perfect environment to thrive in. What starts as a simple filthy roof can quickly evolve into something that’s much worse. Plants are unable to expand without moisture, and if the roof water is prevented from draining, seeds shall be given the chance to germinate. If these plants obstruct the gutters and roof drains, they won’t have the means to reroute the water, increasing the chances of leaks. Additionally, the roots shall eventually destroy the insulation and roof membranes.

At Surrey Roof and Gutter Clean, we prefer to do everything by hand and without the assistance of harmful jet washers. Thanks to the investments we’ve made into our cleaning skills, there is no need for us to be aggressive whilst working on your roof. As a result we are one of the very best roof cleaning companies Surrey has to offer.
