Low pressure treatment of Moss, Algae & Lichens from all types of roofs including concrete tiles, natural and man-made slate.
Over time roofs become colonised by Moss, Algae and Lichens. Other than just being unsightly, these contaminants can lead to issues such as leaks and premature ageing of the roof’s materials.
Moss can build up in valleys, behind chimneys, and in the joints of slates or tiles, acting like a dam during heavy downpours and causing leaks and dampness internally.
Gutters and downpipes fill and block easily due to moss constantly falling or being picked at by birds. If you are here reading this then I’m sure you know all about the constant sweeping of drives, paving and patios, especially during the summer months!
Keep the roof clean and free from debris so water can drain quickly and surfaces dry faster. Our soft wash approach to cleaning all types of roof materials can be described in four easy steps.
The Cleansing process:
The cleaning solution has no deleterious effect on any building material, including metals.
The spraying technique is well controlled and our applicators trained to work with minimal disruption to the occupier.
Works are done using safe working at heights practice and where necessary from our own hoist
**As well was these cleaning and maintenance options we also assist clients with access solutions for other contractors. Our 23m truck mounted MEWP is available with a driver and can provide fully insured safe access for painters, electricians, signage or inspection works. Call or email for more info.
Treatment of Algae and other biological contamination on a buildings external envelope.
When a building's disfiguration is caused by inappropriate design details or dysfunctional components, its sensible to try and address them. Insufficient overhangs on sills and copings are common and easily rectified. Leaking gutters or overflowing downpipes will also contribute to a building fast becoming a breeding ground for Algae, Mould and other organisms. We will give you any appropriate recommendations we can during your initial consultation.
More times then not, a good deep cleaning of exterior surfaces such as coloured silicon renders, will sufficiently restore its appearance without the need for costly paint works. Where painting is a chosen requirement, our treatments ensure paints have the perfect canvas at which to adhere.
Our portfolio of building cleaning includes a host of private residential properties, Apartment complexes, Schools, Hotels, Golf clubs and other business premises.
