Can roof tiles be cleaned?
A simple but quite manual method of cleaning roof tiles is to scrape the moss, algae and dirt from the tile surface by hand. Using a small trowel or a specially designed scraper, scrape the moss and dirt away from the tiles. You will find it much easier to do this on a day, because the moss and other materials will not be stuck to the tiles with moisture.
Can I pressure wash or jet wash my roof tiles to remove moss and dirt?
The use of high powered jet washers is not recommended as it can damage the surface of the slate or tile, thus reducing its expected life considerably. With regards to roof moss it can be scraped off the tiles and a soft wash process be used to remove any residue. We do not recommend that you try to pressure wash your roof unless you are fully trained in how to do it without causing damage to the tiles or slates.
Should you clean moss from roof tiles?
Roof moss will cause problems with your roof over time. To avoid expensive repairs, moss should be removed from your roof tiles quickly if it is covering a significant area of your roof. Avoid pressure washing your roof to remove moss, as this could cause damage to the tiles and roofing felt. this will lead to significant damage your roof interior and ceilings below.
when Should you clean your roof?
Keeping your roof free of moss and debris will prolong the life of the roof. It is a good idea to carry out routine gutter cleaning at least once a year, and repairing any loose or missing tiles or slates will go a long way to extend the life of your roof. However, remember that most roofing professionals will recommend that you leave the cleaning and maintenance of your roof to the professionals.
Is it safe for me to clean moss from my roof tiles?
When you are cleaning your roof, you will be working at height. The use of scaffolding or access platform is highly recommended. An even better solution is a powered cherry picker that will allow you to access the entire roof without leaving the cradle. Remember to wear and attach a safety harness at all times as a fall from height will result in serv=ious injury or death.
We recommend that you leave dangerous jobs such as roof cleaning and roof repairs to trained and properly equipped professionals like us.
How can I prevent moss from growing on my roof?
When we carry out a roof cleaning, we routinely apply a solution that helps prevent moss re-growth for several years. There is a more permanent solution. By installing a thick strip of copper across the ridge of your roof, as close to the ridge as possible. This will protect roof slates and tiles from growing moss. If your roof is larger than average, you might need to fix more than one strip. In this case, add a copper strip at the midway point down the roof, too.
Here Is What A Few Of Our Customers Have Said
An excellent and efficient roof moss removal service
The roof moss removal specialists arrived promptly and explained what they were about to do. They worked industriously until the work was completed. All rubbish was cleared from the site and windows and window frames were washed down thoroughly . I was asked to check the work before they left and was extremely pleased with the finished job. I would have no worries recommending this company for roof cleaning.

Our roof looks like new now ,money well spent. All the roof moss is gone.
Our roof was almost completely covered in roof moss and it looked terrible. I honestly didn’t realise that roof cleaning was a service and been considering getting the tiles replaced. Our roof looks like new now ,money well spent. I want to really say thank you to the two young men who came to my house and were gracious and worked very hard.
I hope they are appreciated and get lots more work from my recommendation.

The Roof Cleaners provided an excellent service. Thank you
We only bought the house a few months ago and were planning to renovate the roof as it was in a terrible condition. A friend recommended the Roof Cleaners for roof moss removal before we would spend thousands on a new roof. I’m so happy that we gave it a try. We are delighted with the service received from this business. The roof cleaning was very thorough and it now looks like we have a new roof.
Whilst it was indeed a very messy job, the roof cleaners spent several hours cleaning up afterwards and indeed protected our grass and driveway with tarpaulins.
Afterwards, we noticed a few slightly damaged tiles and when this was queried, came straight back and replaced them without issue.
They genuinely care about customer service and we would highly recommend them.

Love our nice clean roof. The Roof Cleaners do great work.
On the recommendation of our builder we called the roof cleaners to do a moss removal and soft wash on our roof. The two guys arrived here before 8a.m. and started work immediately.
They covered the driveway and the garden beside the house with plastic sheeting and moved our garden furniture clear of the house. They also moved and covered neighbour’s driveway and garden furniture.
They worked through the day without stopping and finished the job close to 6p.m. They replaced seven broken tiles and checked that the ridge tiles were sound.
They clean up all the debris and took it away with them. I am delighted with the finished roof and gutters. We cannot praise their hard work enough. I highly recommend this company roof cleaning and roof moss removal.
Great guys and really hard workers. Highly recommended.
