To save you money over time and evade costly roof repairs, it is advisable to hire the expertise of a roof cleaning specialist in Bushey, to perform a regular roof maintenance program. It is far easier to identify potential issues like busted or crashed roofing tiles and other means by which moisture can seep into the interior parts of your dwelling, by keeping your roof free of build-ups of moss and dirt.

Roof Cleaning Bushey Hertfordshire (WD23)

A roof cleaning specialist in Bushey is typically needed to remove a build-up of dirt, lichen, moss and algae. Over time these develop naturally and there is not a roof in Bushey that won't have this problem at some stage of it's life. Not surprisingly, quite a few Bushey householders decide to try to do this for themselves using a pressure washer, but be extremely careful of doing this because it can create a considerable mess over yours and your neighbour's property if you aren't careful, and can also cause harm to your roofing tiles.


Moss creates a dense layer of stems across the area it grows, and is a naturally occurring, non flowering plant. Moss spreads by the use of spores which fall onto nearby surfaces and grow pretty rapidly. If left untreated, moss could damage clay, cement and slate tiles by ruining the weatherproof layer and pitting the surface of your tiles. Cracks and splits can evolve from such pitting, which can prevent your home in Bushey from being weatherproofed.


Sometimes roof cleaning operatives in Bushey will remove the majority of this moss by hand. This is a low impact strategy for cleaning your roof and the waste is easily gathered as the process is accomplished. A washing solution will be used to clean the roof, once all of the offending moss has been cleared completely. As soon as this has dried out a special treatment is applied which exterminates any remaining moss spores on your roof tiles. This biocide treatment will also kill off lichens and algae which can build up quickly in areas that don't get much sunlight. Even though the term "soft washing" can also refer to cleansing your roof without first removing the moss and other accumulations from your roof, this is the term that is normally given to this method.

If you failed to use a suitable biocide treatment like this, you will probably notice some moss re-growth on your roof just a few months after having it cleaned. However, your roof should remain free from moss growth for 3 to 4 years if given a chlorine bleach biocide treatment, and a 24-36 monthly retreatment should keep moss, lichen and algae at bay in the years ahead.

After your roof has been washed a roof cleaning service in Bushey will also remove any loose debris that's dropped into your gutters to stop any blockages, enabling the free flow of rainwater.


A roof cleaning service will usually advise against jet washing if your roof or tiles have been in any way damaged, or your house in Bushey is over a certain age. The reasoning behind this is that a jet of water under pressure can easily damage the waterproof membrane, penetrate the tiles and allow water to get into your property, creating more complications than it solves. While this may be the quickest method of finding whether your roof leaks, it isn't advised to do this without the guidance of a professional.

Roof Cleaning Quotes in Bushey Hertfordshire

The high-pressure water from a jet washer can also damage flashings, pointing, fascias and soffits on your roof. At the very least, you could remove the waterproof finish on your tiles and reduce their normal lifespan by using a basic, non-professional jet washer on your roof.

However, there are circumstances where this could be possible, and after going through all the disadvantages of this process, we will look at some more favourable scenarios. After doing a survey of your roof and the extent of cleaning needed, a roof cleaning specialist in Bushey will figure out the best approach. They may conclude that power washing will be the most viable and cheapest option to clean your roof, as long as your roof tiles are up to the process.

Roof Cleaning Near Bushey Hertfordshire

The jet washers used by an established roof cleaning business in Bushey have got adjustable pressures for water flow. This makes certain that while efficiently cleaning the area, your roof suffer no harm at all. To stop further re-growth of moss and algae and keep your roof looking good for the foreseeable future, there will be a separate treatment of biocide solution, as is the case with hand cleaning (as mentioned earlier).

If a local roof cleaning company offers you any kind of jet wash service, you should ensure that they've got ample insurance coverage for possible damages or complications, and you should also ask for references from former clients. Under no circumstances whatsoever should a jet washer be used on a thatched roof. You should decline the offer of assistance if this is offered by any thatched-roof cleaning service in Bushey.


The most environmentally friendly solution that a roof cleaning service in Bushey can offer you is steam cleaning. Any moss, lichens and algae are killed off by the hot steam, and no strong cleaning products or unpleasant chemicals are used during this process. Innovative biocides are now available that are sustainable and eco-friendly and don't impact the environment, which is of course very important to many householders in Bushey. Products like Bioxide are being widely touted in the roof cleaning business, being a "green" anti-fungal treatment that is suitable for use on all roof surfaces after the steam cleaning process, and has the advantage of being environmentally friendly and non-toxic.

The pressure which is employed in the steam cleaning process is a lot lower than that of a normal pressure washer. This means that it's far less likely that your roof will be harmed. It is no great surprise that there is a stumbling block with steam cleaning, which is that with regards to roof cleaning, it is the priciest alternative.


Roof cleaning can be pretty messy, and whatever of the above techniques is used, one of the first jobs that should be done is the layout of sheeting around your house to catch any moss, leaves or muck that results. If scaffolding is required, this will need to be put in position, and downspouts should also be protected to stop any loosened debris falling in and creating an obstruction.
