Cleaning roofs

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. Learn More

ALGOCLEAR® PRO SOFTCLEAN

AlgoClear is scientifically proven to clean 
roofs & walls safely and effectively.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”.

Preparing roofs for treatment

Removing the excess growth: Many roofs are cleaned when the moss has become excessive. The bulky material is scraped off using a simple implement. Below 30° pitch and when the tiles are sound, this can be done by a trained roofer, pacing the roof itself. If the roof is too steep or fragile – period clay tiles for instance – the preparation is carried out from the eaves using bespoke telescopic tools.

The cleansing:

The product begins to work immediately and the initial phase (killing the biofilm) is substantially completed within 1/2 hour. The weather will do the rest. The speed of cleansing is by and large in relation to the site exposure and to a degree the type of contaminant. Different contaminants will shed at different rates: Moss remnants will quickly decay and disperse. White and yellow lichen will also die within a short period and begin to detach. Lichen need dry and wet weather cycles to break the bond with the tiles and will fall gradually within a few months. Black metabolites, particularly common on concrete tiles are water soluble and begin receding at the first rain. The dark discolouration can take a few months to disappear completely and reveal the true/ intended appearance of the roof finishes. Time to re-spray: On roofs, some light green can re-appear about 4 years after treatment if the building is situated in a moist environment. Moss takes a long time to come back. On average, roof cleaning is decennial.
