SHOULD I PRESSURE WASH MY ROOF?
As roof cleaning specialists in one of the questions we are commonly asked is ‘can I pressure wash my roof?’ or ‘is it safe to pressure wash my roof?’.
Done correctly; at the right pressure and with the appropriate equipment and on the right roof, pressure washing can sometimes be a useful tool for roof cleaning – especially if time is a factor. However, it is important to establish that pressure washing roof cleaning can come with associated risks.
Any professional roof cleaning service should be able to assess and then tell you what the risks of pressure washing are specific to your roof on your site.
We can and do offer roof pressure washing when it is safe and appropriate to do so. However, generally our recommeded roof cleaning method would be DOFF steam cleaning or soft wash rather than pressure washing. Using Doff steam cleaning roof cleaning is a no damage, no pressure approach to roof cleaning London. Soft Wash is no pressure, high volume apprach which also has benefits. We’ve compiled this video to show you the pro’s and cons of pressure washing your roof and DOFF steam cleaning your roof so that you are better informed about the roof cleaning options available to you..

Why Is My Roof So Dirty?
England’s weather and climate creates textbook conditions for moss, algae and lichen growth on the roofs of properties across London. This organic growth causes a number of problems that is very costly to fix. If you’ve notices moss, dirt, grime build up on the roof of your London property you’ll likely want a quote on roof cleaning. We know London like the back of our hand, having had bases in West London, South London and now Greater London.
Will Moss & Algae Build Up Actually Cause A Problem?
No only does moss growth on a roof can look unappealing but it can also lead to other complications if left unchecked. Gutters and downpipes can become clogged. The added heaviness of wet moss can cause stresses on a roof structure. The repeated freeze-thaw process in winter may cause roof tiles to break which leads to premature degradation of the roof. If left to worsen it could cost a considerable amount of money for roof repairs. We provide safe, effective roof cleaning and roof moss removal services for homes and business in London.
What Is Your Moss & Algae Removal Technique?
Once the roof has been cleaned the roof tiles will then be treated using a biocide designed to impregnate the roof tiles, stop germination of any moss spores and stop any regrowth. The non-pressure roof cleaning and roof moss removal service we deliver efficiently and successfully removes dirt, grime and algae from your roof. Many roofs can now be cleaned safely from the ground or at the gutter level eliminating the need to walk on the roof, reducing the need for costly scaffolding.
Should I Pressure Wash My Roof?
We often get asked if it’s safe to pressue wash a roof. The answer really depends. We certainly do not ever recommend getting a Karcher and attempting to use a jet wash to clean your roof yourself. Aside from the very genuine risk to yourself working from height, you will almost certainly damage your roof.
That is not to say you should never pressure wash a roof. There may be certain circumstances, with certain roofs where pressure washing your roof becomes a favourable roof cleaning soloution. However there are significant risks involved in pressure washing a roof which risks are only mitigated by using a professional.
In this brief video we do a side by side comparison of pressure washing a roof over steam cleaning a roof.

Will you pressure wash the roof?
No! Softwashing is a the new and vastly superior method of cleaning surfaces such as roof tiles. With pressure washing there is a very real danger of damaging the roof tiles beause of the intense impat and high high pressure. Soft washing gently cleans the moss and dirt off the surface of the tile by using a special blend of ingredients which are sprayed by low pressure onto the affected area, and washed off after the chemicals have killed the moss, dirt and algae
