Protect Your Property

Having your roof cleaned and checked by professionals will help to prevent damage from occurring. Some of the problems that can arise if roofs are not cleaned include:

  • Interior Damp & Mould
  • Sagging Ceilings
  • Structural Damage
  • Pests (such as rats & mice)

If moss, lichen and other debris are allowed to grow on your roof, it will cause cracks to form in the tiles and generally weaken the materials that are supposed to protect the building. This will then lead to damp and moisture building up in the property, so you will likely see mould growing on interior walls and ceilings.

Keep Pests Out

Pests such as rats and mice are encouraged to try to access your home and nest when there is a build-up of moss and lichen on the roof. This is because debris will collect in the guttering.

The debris is a great place for pests to stay and find food. When they run out of food or get cold, they will likely attempt to enter through the attic into the warm. These pests are not limited to rats and mice. Insects love the dampness of clogged gutters and will happily stay and breed there if the guttering is not cleared and fixed.

Save Money

By having your roof cleaned, you are saving money on future repairs and even replacements. Cracked and broken tiles will need replacing and the damage caused by water coming in through those gaps could be extensive.

Water damage issues could include peeling wallpaper, loose plaster and even flooding. These problems can be prevented by hiring experts to regularly check and clean your property, keeping your costs to a minimum.
