Roof Washing (Instant Results)
For an instant-result roof washing, roof surfaces are Soft Washed. First, we apply a combination of the following three cleaning agents to the roof surface:
- A salt-based cleaning product that removes mould and fungi, killing the spores and thereby retarding the return of green algae and black fungi.
- A grease-cutting citrus solution that breaks down diesel fumes from nearby traffic, road dust, and BBQ splatter.
- An environmentally friendly neutral detergent that dissolves general dirt and grime.
We then wash off the same surfaces with low-pressure water—known as a Soft Wash. As the standard for any roof wash, the roof, gutters, and spoutings are cleaned and the downpipes are flushed out with a drain snake (a plumbers tool) if/as necessary.
This service is suitable for Corrugated Iron, Colour Steel, Decromastic (pre-paint), Concrete Tile, and Butanol roofs. Where a home is on tank water, we will either disconnect and/or block off the downpipes to avoid drinking-water contamination.
Due to the necessary safety precautions involved with roof cleaning, a safety harness rigging fee will apply.
