Roof Cleaning Perth for Terracotta Roof Tiles

Roof cleaning in Perth for terracotta tiled roofs of all ages. We don’t use high pressure water cleaning for terracotta roof tiles. To clean your Perth roof we use an eco friendly low pressure soft wash. High pressure water can damage the surface of both glazed and unglazed terracotta roof tiles. Even the manufacturers of new glazed terracotta roof tiles advise against using high pressure water to clean them.
Like most things in life the technology to do with roof cleaning has moved on. When we talk about a “product” or “chemical” for roof cleaning we are referring to a disinfectant. A roof cleaning disinfectant that will kill off bacteria and viruses. Bacteria populate most surfaces, and on your roof they are in the form of very small algae and we use our product to kill them off making your roof clean. The green you see on your roof are lichens and mosses and these plant forms feed off the algae. So it makes sense that the easiest way to clean your roof is to kill off whatever these plant forms need to grow. So kill the algae and we kill off the lichens and moss. In fact hospitals use the same kind of product as a disinfectant because all this group of products are biodegradable and break down easily in the environment causing no harm.
So for cleaning your Perth roof we use an environmentally friendly product that is safe for pets and your plants. This product will kill all the lichen and moss on your terracotta roof but it won’t work right away. You will need to wait for a few months for the roof to start looking cleaner. The weather does the work for us. Rain makes the lichen and moss soggy and it starts to wash off. The sun and wind dries it out and it gets crispy and breaks off. Over time this process continues and your roof slowly but surely begins to look like new.
