Property owners in Farnborough most frequently require a roof cleaning service due to an accumulation of moss, algae, lichen and other build-ups of grime. At some point in time, every roof in Farnborough will have this type of problem, because such things develop naturally over time and can't be prevented completely. Of course, quite a few Farnborough homeowners choose to try to do this by themselves using a jet washer, however be extremely cautious about doing this since it can result in a considerable mess over yours and neighbouring properties if you aren't careful, and can also damage your roofing tiles.


Moss is a non-flowering, naturally occuring plant which grows across an area creating a dense layer of stems. By distributing spores onto the surrounding surfaces, it spreads pretty quickly and can soon start to cause trouble. By ruining the weatherproofing layer and pitting the surfaces of clay, slate and cement tiles, moss can damage your roof if left to its own devices. Cracks and splits can evolve from such pitting, which can stop your home in Farnborough from being properly waterproofed.


Specialist roof cleaning companies in Farnborough will frequently clear most areas of moss by hand. As roof cleaning methods go, this is obviously a low impact technique, and it has the added benefit that the resulting waste materials can be more readily collected upon completion of the process. A solution is utilised to cleanse the rest of your roof after all the moss has been eliminated. To destroy any surviving moss spores on your roof tiles, a special treatment will be applied when this has dried off. Lichens and algae should also be killed off by this biocide treatment, which is handy because these can swiftly develop in damp parts of your roof that are out of full sunlight. Within the trade, this treatment as a whole is referred to as "soft washing".

You might see some re-growth of moss in just a few months, if you were to leave your roof without applying a biocide spray like this. If it is used, your roof should remain free from moss growth for some three to four years, and to keep it in the best possible condition, a specialist roof cleaning service in Farnborough will recommend retreating every 2 to 3 years.

A professional roof cleaning specialist will normally advise against power washing if your roof and tiles have been damaged to any extent, or your home in Farnborough is older. This is due to the fact that the high pressure jet of water can easily penetrate the tiles, damage the waterproof membrane and permit water to get into your house to cause damage. While you will pretty quickly find whether your roof has any leaks, it's not wise to do this without professional help.

It is also possible that the water jet from a power washer will cause damage to flashing, soffit boards, pointing and fascias on the roof structure of your house. At a minimum, you could affect the watertight coating on your tiles and greatly reduce their expected lifespan by using a non-professional standard of pressure wash on your home's roof.

Having said that, there are scenarios where this could be feasible, and after dealing with all the cons, we will examine some of the more favourable situations. A roof cleaning expert in Farnborough will decide on the best course of action for your property, after assessing your roof and determining what level of cleaning is required.

When looking at the different techniques for cleaning your roof in Farnborough, the "greenest" alternative of them all is steam cleaning. This process doesn't involve the application of chemicals or harsh cleaning products, and the intense heat of the steam instantly eliminates any lichens, algae and moss that are living on your roof tiles. Ground breaking biocides are now available which are eco-friendly and sustainable and are better for the wider environment, which is of course an extremely important consideration for many people. Products like Bioxide are being widely touted in the steam cleaning market, being a "green" anti-fungal solution that is suitable for use on any kind of surface after the steam cleaning process, and has the advantage of being non-toxic and environmentally safe.
