To save you money over the long haul and evade expensive roof repair bills, it is advisable to employ the expertise of a roof cleaning specialist in Cullompton, to perform a routine roof maintenance program. It is far easier to identify potential problems such as broken or cracked roofing tiles and other ways that moisture can get into the internal areas of your dwelling, by keeping your roof free from a build-up of moss and debris.

Roof Cleaning Cullompton Devon (EX15)

The most common cause for a roof cleaning service being needed in Cullompton is to remove an accumulation of algae, dirt, lichen and moss. Over time these occur naturally and there's not a roof in Cullompton that will not experience this issue at some point over its lifetime. On account of the costs involved with this process, you may try to use a jet washer and clean your roof by yourself, although you must be vigilant because aside from the safety factor, you could cause damage to your roofing tiles and create a considerable mess over yours and your neighbour's property.


Moss creates a dense layer of stems across the area it grows, and is a naturally occurring, non flowering plant. It spreads by the use of spores which drop onto nearby surfaces and grow fairly quickly. Clay, cement and slate tiles can soon be compromised by moss if left untreated, by ruining their weatherproof layer and causing pitting to their surfaces. Such pitting can develop into holes and fractures which prevent your home from being a waterproof and weatherproof structure.


The bulk of this moss will often be cleared by hand by professional roof cleaning companies in Cullompton. Whilst this may seem a little labour intensive, this low impact roof cleaning method makes it much easier to gather together the waste materials afterwards. When all the moss has been successfully cleared, your roof can be cleaned using a washing solution. To destroy any remaining moss spores on your roof, a treatment will be applied when this has dried out. Algae and lichens will also be killed off by this biocide treatment, which is handy as these can quickly develop in damp, shaded parts of your roof that don't get much sunlight. Whilst the expression "soft washing" can also make reference to cleaning your roof without first removing the moss and other accumulations from your roof, this is the term that is normally given to this treatment method.

If you failed to apply a suitable biocide treatment like this, you will probably notice some moss re-growth on your roof just a few months after cleaning it. The biocide treatment should keep your roofing tiles free from growth for 3 to 4 years, and a specialist roof cleaning service in Cullompton will recommend a retreatment every two to three years to keep your roof moss, algae and lichen free, and in the best condition possible.

When the cleaning process is completed, a good quality roof cleaning service in Cullompton should also clear your guttering system of any debris, to stop future blockages and enable the free flow of rainwater into your downpipes.


If your house in Cullompton is quite old or your tiles and roof have been damaged to any extent, a professional roof cleaning specialist will normally advise against power washing. This might seem surprising to you, but a high pressure jet of water could penetrate the tiles, damage the waterproof membrane and allow water to enter your property, which could cause unwanted damage to the interior of your home. It is not advised to try this without the guidance of a professional, despite the fact that this might be the quickest way to find a leak in your roof!

Roof Cleaning Quotes in Cullompton Devon

The high-pressure water from a jet washer can also damage flashings, fascias, pointing and soffits on your roof. If you are not very careful, the use of a basic pressure washer on your home's roof could affect the natural lifespan of your tiles by removing their waterproof finish.

So, we have looked at the drawbacks of pressure washing your roof, let's now consider where this process might be possible, and even beneficial. After conducting a survey of your roof and the extent of cleaning needed, a roof cleaning specialist in Cullompton will decide on the best strategy. If it is felt that pressure washing your tiles will not have a negative impact, they might conclude that this is the most viable and cheapest option for your roof cleaning undertaking.

Roof Cleaning Near Cullompton Devon

The devices that professional roof cleaning businesses in Cullompton use in their work, have water flow pressures that can be altered to suit all conditions. This guarantees that while the area is efficiently cleaned, your tiles suffer no damage or harm whatsoever. To keep your roof looking good for a few more years, as with hand cleaning, there should be a separate biocide treatment to prevent the re-growth of algae and moss.

If a local roof cleaning provider offers you a power wash service, you should ensure that they have adequate insurance coverage for potential damages or possible further complaints, and you should also ask for references from former clients. It should also be pointed out that a thatched roof should never be subjected to power washing. If any thatched-roof cleaning company in Cullompton offers to provide you with this service you should definitely turn down their offer.


The most eco-friendly solution that any roof cleaning service in Cullompton can offer is steam cleaning. The high temperature of the steam will quickly kill off any moss, lichens and algae, and the process doesn't call for the use of harsh cleaning products or chemicals. Promising advances have been made into innovative biocides that are eco-friendly and sustainable and do not impact the wider environment. "Green" anti-fungal products like Bioxide, that are environmentally safe, non-toxic and can be used on any type of roof surface after the steam cleaning process, are gaining traction in the steam cleaning market.

The pressure that is involved in the steam cleaning process is a lot less than that of a normal pressure washer. This means that the likelihood of damaging your roof is less likely. It is hardly surprising that there is a fly in the ointment with a steam clean, which is that with regards to roof cleaning, it is the most expensive solution.


When doing a clean on your roof in Cullompton, whatever procedure is used, the first thing that needs to be carried out is laying out sheeting around your house to catch any falling moss, leaves and other debris. If a scaffold is required, this will need to be put in position, and downspouts should also be protected to stop any loosened debris falling in and causing an obstruction.
