Cornwall, along with its neighbour Devon, is renowned for its picturesque landscapes. But it also comes with a damp climate. This can be particularly challenging for roofs, leading to faster moss growth, algae, roof stains, and potential damage.

Our team is not just familiar with this climate; we’ve mastered the art of roof cleaning in Cornwall. We understand the specific needs and challenges that Cornwall’s weather brings, and we’ve tailored our services to combat them effectively.

Environmentally-friendly roof cleaning in Cornwall

We harness the power of eco-friendly steam cleaning, using superheated steam to penetrate deep into stains without the need for chemicals.

For clients for who are not so concerned about environmentally-friendly roof cleaning, we can use the Softwash system. This delicately sprays a specialised solution, dissolving stains and revealing the roof’s natural colour. 

Manual removal of roof moss

Additionally, we employ manual scrubbing for meticulous moss and algae removal when the roof surface demands it. No matter which technique we use, we can also add a bactericide application to prevent regrowth.

Each technique is a testament to our commitment to excellence, ensuring every roof receives the care it deserves. Check out the details of our different roof cleaning systems below.

Roof Cleaning in Cornwall with the Softwash system

Softwashing is a gentle yet highly effective technique tailored for different roof types.

This uses a chemical which cuts through stains to allow the natural colour of the roof tiles to come through. It removes all traces of mould, lichen and moss, and removes all discolouration to leave your roof clean and looking almost like new. It is excellent for roof cleaning Cornwall, and removes grime effortlessly.

The little staining left after the application of the Softwash will fade over the coming weeks after treatment.

Each Softwash solution is mixed specifically for the type of roof tiles being treated. This ensures optimal results without risking damage to the tiles. The chemical spray dissolves stains, revealing the roof’s natural colour.

Roof bacteriacide application

To ensure the longevity of our cleaning results, we offer an additional layer of protection by applying a roof bactericide. The bactericide destroys moss and algae spores, ensuring they don’t make a quick comeback.

With the spores destroyed, your roof remains clean for much longer, reducing the need for frequent cleanings.

Our diverse range of cleaning techniques ensures that every roof, regardless of its type or the challenges it presents, receives the care and attention it deserves.

Types of roofs we service: comprehensive roof cleaning for every roof type found in Cornwall

cleaning for types of roof tiles

Our specialised roof cleaning services are tailored to each roof type, ensuring they retain their unique character while standing strong against Cornwall’s challenging climate. Discover how our cleaning processes rejuvenate and protect each roof type, ensuring your home remains both attractive and secure.

Tiled roofs cleaned and rejuvenated

Over time, tiled roofs can accumulate moss, algae, and dirt. This not only compromises their appearance, but can lead to rainwater seeping beneath the tiles. This can lead to damp roof joints and expensive repairs.

To clean tiled roofs we can remove the clumps of moss from the roof by hand. We follow this pre-cleaning preparation with low-pressure steam cleaning, using the gentle steam to remove all remaining moss or weather stains from the tiles.

Softwashing can also be used on roof tiles in some circumstances.

Slate roofs cleaned in Cornwall

Steam cleaning stands out as the optimal choice for cleaning slate roofs. A natural slate roof can be damaged by aggressive roof cleaning methods, making the gentle nature of steam cleaning particularly suitable. 

Many roofs in Cornwall are covered in slate. The superheated steam lifts away dirt and moss without the need for harsh chemicals or the risk of damage through jetwashing.

This ensures that the slate’s integrity and natural beauty are preserved.

Concrete roofs

Concrete roofs, while robust and durable, are porous. This means they can easily trap dirt, leading to stains and potential structural issues. Once again, steam cleaning is the most effective method for cleaning a concrete roof, a technique which removes the stains from the concrete and uncovers the original colour.

No two roofs in Cornwall are the same, and neither are their cleaning needs. Our deep-rooted local knowledge allows us to offer tailored solutions, ensuring that each roof, whether in Penzance or Newquay, gets the specialised care it deserves.

No matter the type of roof you have, our team is equipped with the knowledge, tools, and expertise to clean it thoroughly, ensuring it looks and functions at its best.
