What is Soft Cleaning for roofs?

The Soft Clean treatment is a safe and effective way to clean exterior surfaces especially roofs. Although soft cleaning is most commonly used for roof cleaning, the treatment is also used to clean cladding, K Rend, render, block paved driveways, decking, tarmac, wet pour play grounds, fences and patios. In fact, almost all exterior surfaces you can think of. Soft cleaning is a safe and very effective low pressure cleaning method. It allows cleaning using low pressure equipment that will effectively clean and sanitize exterior surfaces with soft cleaning chemical called ALGOCLEAR

The Soft Clean treatment takes a scientific approach to cleaning by using quality eco-friendly ALGOCLEAR products blended for all kinds of projects. Soft Clean treatments will treat the root cause of the growths, and kill the spores, without damaging the property or harming the environment in any way. The Soft Clean treatment treats unwanted biological growth and fungus, moss, red and green algae, bacteria, lichen, pollen, mould and other forms of embedded growth on an exterior surface without high pressure.

By using low pressure pumps to clean and rinse with minimal pressures. Soft cleaning is the fastest and very effective hard surface cleaning method in the UK market producing excellent results. The Soft Clean treatment can keep surfaces clean for up to 5 years following treatment dependant on weather conditions and position of property.

The Problems with Moss

Moss usually takes hold in between the tiles and grows opening up the joints and potentially allowing water to enter the roof space, this will lead to the roof laths becoming soaked and eventually rotting which will lead to costly replacement.

Moss also take hold on worn concrete tiles as the surface becomes pitted with age making it easy for the moss to take hold and grow.

Moss also increases water retention so when it rains the roof takes on extra weight as the worn tile and the moss absorb the water, this leads to extra stress on the roof timbers.

Moss will retain water on the tile surface so in winter when it freezes it could cause the tile to crack due to the frozen water expanding which was previously absorbed by the tile.
Moss will gradually cause the concrete tile to deteriorate and accelerate the wearing process reducing the life of the tile.
Moss will accelerate the destruction of your ridge pointing.

Soft Wash Treatment

1 - The roof is first inspected for any visible damage
2 - All damaged tiles/slates are replaced and repairs undertaken
3 - The whole surface of the roof is then low pressure sprayed with ALGOCLEAR
4 – The treatment is left for 1 week to kill off all algae /moss etc.
5 – The roof is then hosed off if required leaving a clean roof
6 – Clear tile sealer can be applied after completion of this treatment.
