Roof Cleaning

Regular roof cleaning helps to maintain one of the most important parts of a building’s structure. Removing algae, fungus, moss, mould and residue from the surface of a roof helps to keep its materials in good condition. Cleaning also provides professionals with an opportunity to assess the condition of the roof. This can be an excellent way to spot minor maintenance issues before they turn into serious problems.

Spectrum has years of experience cleaning all external areas of domestic and commercial buildings, including roofs. This expertise allows our operatives to find the most appropriate cleaning solution for the job and carry out the work as quickly and efficiently as possible.

Why roofs need regular cleaning

As roofs are fully exposed to the elements, they’re prone to algae growth as well as moss and mould. This organic matter can take hold quickly on many materials used for roofing, causing discolouration and an unattractive finish.

Algae

Algae is a common problem on properties across the UK. Algae spores are carried through the air and deposited on external surfaces. In damp, temperate conditions, algae can grow quickly, causing the walls or roof of a property to turn green, red or black as it takes hold.

If it is not thoroughly removed, algae will return again and again, becoming a recurring issue for the property owner. Spectrum uses a combination of powerful cleaning methods and biocidal wash to kill and remove algae from all types of roofing.

Moss

Moss is another common problem on both commercial and residential properties. If left untreated, moss can grow quickly to cover large areas of roofing. When dislodged, it can easily find its way into the guttering, causing blockages and other potentially serious maintenance issues.

Our moss removal service will thoroughly clean all moss from the surface of a roof. Our operatives will also use specially formulated biocide treatment to help prevent moss from re-growing for as long as possible.

Mould

Mould can also be found growing on many roofs across the UK. Like other organic substances, it needs to be removed quickly and thoroughly to prevent discolouration and staining to the roofing materials.

Atmospheric Pollutants

Properties located in built-up areas and close to busy transport links may experience a build-up of atmospheric pollutants on their roofs. These particles are produced by cars, lorries, planes, factories and other polluters and are deposited on all types of external surfaces. Over time, they can cause roofs and façades to appear dirty and dull.

Spectrum will identify the most appropriate cleaning method to remove this dirt and grime. Our team will then use their specialist cleaning and access skills to carry out the work and leave the roof looking like new.

What Can Roof Cleaning Be Used For?

Metal Roof
Cleaning

Metal Roofing is one of the oldest commercial roofing systems on the market. Most metal roofing systems use corrugated galvanized steel, although other materials such as aluminium or tin can also be used. We are able to restore metal roofs to the way they looked in the past.

Roof Tile
Cleaning

Our low-pressure high-temperature steam cleaning equipment coupled with our biocidal softwash ensures that your roof tiles are left looking as good as new.

Shingle Roof
Cleaning

Shingle roofing is mostly known for homes and residential roofing, but shingles are very often used for steep-slope commercial roofing application. Spectrum can clean and restore shingle roofs to the way they looked in the past.

Solar Panel

Very helpful and friendly guys. Shaky English, but that didn’t really matter - they got the job done remarkably quickly and, as far as I can tell, thoroughly, showing me photos of the work afterwards. They even, at my request, put what they got out of the gutters in a bucket to go on our compost heap!...

Types of roof cleaning

Metal Roof Cleaning

Metal roofing has been used on commercial properties for years. In fact, it is one of the oldest commercial roofing systems on the market. Most metal roofing systems use corrugated, galvanized steel, although other materials, like aluminium or tin, can also be used.

Our advanced cleaning methods allow our teams to completely renovate metal roofs of all kinds. Once work is complete and all organic matter and staining are removed, metal roofs will be restored to their original aesthetic condition.

Roof Tile Cleaning

Roof tiles are used to top both commercial and residential buildings. Over time, tiles can be discoloured by the growth of algae, mould and moss, as well as by pollutants in the atmosphere. When cleaning tiled roofs, Spectrum uses low-pressure, high-temperature steam cleaning equipment and a powerful biocidal softwash. This combination of cleaning methods ensures that roof tiles are left looking as good as new.

Shingled Roof Cleaning

Shingle is mostly commonly used for homes and residential roofing, although it can also be used for steep-slope commercial roofing applications. Like tiles, shingle is prone to the growth of algae, moss and mould. Over time, this growth can begin to look unsightly and cause the roof to look older and in worse condition than it really is. Spectrum can use a combination of cleaning methods to remove organic growth and other staining and restore shingle roofs to their original aesthetic condition.

Why use Spectrum for your roof cleaning project?

Over the years, Spectrum has developed a number of unique, patented cleaning techniques. These allow our operatives to achieve outstanding results and to clean all types of roofing more thoroughly than other roof cleaning companies.

Our approach to cleaning roofs has been derived from our tried and tested render cleaning technique. This involves using unique, patented equipment to access and clean roofs, before treating the area with specially developed biocide. Biocide is mixed specifically for each job to ensure optimum results every time. This dual approach ensures that roofs are kept clear of organic matter for as long as possible.

Quality Guaranteed.

We use our render cleaning expertise to enhance our roof cleaning services. Our patented modular pole system enables our operatives to steam clean roofs of all types and achieve consistently impressive results. Our service team are highly trained and pride themselves on delivering a quality service every single time.

Unrivalled Customer Service.

Spectrum is driven to deliver fantastic customer service on every job. Our mission as a company is to provide excellent service at a reasonable price and to put the customer at the heart of everything we do. We strive to achieve this with every project and every customer we take on.

Experts in Access

Our experience in providing a full range of access solutions means that our operatives rarely have to erect scaffolding to carry out a commercial roof clean. Instead, we used a combination of MEWP platforms and our patented modular pole system to gain access to a roof. This saves our clients a considerable amount on scaffolding costs and allows our team to carry out a roof clean quickly and efficiently.
