Roof Cleaning Service
BENEFITS TO SOFTCAT, MARLOW,
Following our intensive roof cleaning service, we provided a post clean treatment of biocide which will provide a long-lasting effect, inhibit future moss/algae growth and will, overall, enhance the appearance of the roof. In the fullness of time roof tiles are colonised by moss, lichen and a host of other species. It is deleterious to the material and appears poorly maintained. The mix of species is called biofilm. After the treatment, the dead biofilm slowly disperses revealing the original appearance of the tiles. The self-cleansing can take between a few weeks and a few months depending on the exposure and porosity of the roofing material.
Specialist Access/Cleaning Methods utilized?
We used our Torik superheated cleaning system. The 150-degree superheated steam, vapour removes any moss, algae and lichen. The machine operates on an extremely low water flow-flow and surfaces are dry within hours.
We had to provide this roof cleaning service, out of hours at the weekend to avoid disruption to our client and staff.
