A recent article published by the team discusses mould on roofs, and reasons for using a professional company to clean your roof rather than attempting it yourself.
Here is the general gist of the article (courtesy of Roof Restoration Narre Warren).
If your roof is looking like it has seen better days and covered with mould, or even moss and algae for that matter, then getting the mould removed could do wonders for the appearance of your house and potentially add value to your property. If you are considering removing the mould, here are some pointers to help you do so.
The first and only pointer is – get the professionals to do it! Removing mould (dirt, algae, moss, etc) from your roof is a difficult task. Any reputable roofing company has the proper gear to carry out this task effectively and efficiently (without damage to people, the environment, and the roof). Most importantly, they have the safety equipment to prevent accidents (such as falling off the roof) and maintain practices in compliance with regulations.
Another reason to have a professional roofer clean your roof is that any defects found with your roof that are not noticeable to the untrained eye could be picked up early, and repaired before they become big issues requiring expensive roof repairs. A decent roofer will carry out an inspection of your roof prior to doing any work to determine the best course of action. Any issues or recommended work to be done will be discussed with you.
Efficient cleaning of a roof requires expensive equipment. A commercial quality pressure cleaner will normally be enough to clean your roof and remove any mould. The important thing here is the cleaning of the roof without harsh and dangerous chemicals. It goes without saying that this is so much better for the environment, your roof, and you and your family. If you were to attempt to clean the roof yourself, with out a pressure cleaner you would have no choice but to use chemicals.
Using chemicals, without a pressure cleaner, will require some sort of physical scrubbing work. Combine this with a wet roof, can result in a high risk operation for you – especially if you’re not experienced being on top of a roof. So by trying to clean a roof yourself, you could in fact be risking your own life. Hiring the services of a professional roofing company will eliminate these risks, result in a professional job and a great looking roof.
