Roof Cleaning Townsville

Your roof is one of the most important features of your house. Every day it protect us from blistering heat and driving rain. Yet it is remarkable how little we think of our roof. As long as it’s doing what it’s supposed to do, we don’t give it a second thought. We expect it to be around for years to come and serve us as faithfully as it always had.
 
But roofs do fail. Sometimes spectacularly like when they are blown off during a cyclone, but other times the failings are far more subtle.
 
All roofs require upkeep. It requires someone getting up there and washing away the dirt and debris, mould and mildew, and all the other stuff like lichen and moss that have developed and congregated there over the years.

roof washing Townsville

Lichen can get into and under your roofing tiles, damaging them. Moss is like a sponge, and when filled up with water, become a lot heavier. Roofs are designed to ensure water flows off them naturally, but moss can collect some of that water, and cause an uneven spread of weight on your roof.

It might take a long time, but this build up of pressure might cause problems within your tiles, or water rot of the roof itself, letting water leak into your home, where it can cause more damage.
 
While not as spectacular as losing your roof in a violent cyclone, this damage could be happening to your house every day, and you might not even know it. Once the leaks appear, the options available to you won’t be cheap; you could repair the roof, or restore it completely.
 
All of this expensive work could have been prevented by a good clean every know and then by a professional cleaning service.

Is High Pressure Cleaning Suitable For All Roof Types?

commercial pressure cleaning Townsville

As is the case with the house exterior surfaces, high pressure cleaning is not suitable for all roof types. Performing high pressure cleaning on your roof tiles might cause considerable collateral damage if your roofing tiles are more delicate.
 
Also, cleaning at high pressure requires a lot of heavy equipment. Working on roofs, many of which are heavily sloping, is difficult enough in the best of circumstances. Having to lug around heavy equipment at the same time might increase the risk to unsatisfactory levels.

Each roofing job will have different requirements and circumstances and will be judged on a case by case situation. Some roofing jobs will allow for High Pressure Cleaning, a lot will not. In those situations, our contractors will perform a Soft Wash.
 
A Soft Wash substitutes the high-pressure water jets of a high pressure clean with environmentally friendly chemicals. These chemicals, which are completely safe to you, your family, your pets, your roof and the environment as a whole, break down the dirt and grime, mould, mildew and moss, and then a simple low-pressure water rinse will remove the contaminants, leaving a beautiful, fully functional roof behind.
