Not everything green is friendly. So do not be fooled by the green spots you see growing on your roof, driveway, or walls. Moss should be a cause for concern. Apart from messing with the aesthetics of your home, moss can cause other damages.
For instance, moss will weaken your roof when it is left for an extended period. In some cases, moss will grow toxic. You do not want your family to breath in poisonous air. It is, therefore, essential to clean any present moss before it causes havoc in your home.

What you can expect
For our moss removal services, we follow two primary steps:
Our moss removal services will remove any existing moss spores in your home. We do this by agitating the moss away from the infected area. We use hand tools to ensure that we do not damage your property.
Once all the moss is removed, we start the treatment process. The treatment kills any remaining moss at its roots. The treatment also makes sure that moss will not grow back.
This treatment service will keep the surface safe for around 3-5 years.
We recommend moss removal services because they prevent the occurrence of unsightly brown patches on your roof tiles, brickwork or render. We recommend moss treatment services because they prevent the regrowth of moss.
The combination of these two processes results in an effective barrier for further moss growth. We aim to restore your home to its former charm. Besides, we ensure that your home can withstand the test of time.
Roof cleaning Services
We provide complete roof cleaning services for homes that possess moss on their roofs. If you are tired of moss falling from your roof and on your compound, we are here to help. Our work is to satisfy your home requirements.
Our roof moss removal services are manual. We scrape the moss from your roof, after which we apply a biocide roof wash. This will leave your roof free from moss for up to at least 3-5 years, depending on where your house or building is situated. Example, a property with trees and foliage close by will come back quicker than a property that is void of these attributes.
When we arrive at your home, we will start by clearing and covering your surrounding compound with tarpaulin. This helps us collect the moss that we remove from your roof, as well as the waste we clean from the gutter.
We then disconnect your downpipes. This will prevent the moss and roof debris from causing any blockages below ground level. Then we start removing the moss from each side of your roof manually.
We ensure that each tile on the roof is inspected and cleared of all moss. After all the moss is removed, we clear your gutter. We then apply the moss treatment to ensure that your roof stays moss free for an extended period.
To keep your roof safe, we access it using roof ladders, access towers, and cherry pickers and ladders when necessary. You can trust our roof cleaning services to keep your home safe.
Conservatory roof cleaning Services
It is no lie; cleaning a conservatory roof is a tricky endeavour.
This is because conservatories are susceptible and delicate structures. They require a significant amount of upkeep to maintain their appearance.
At the same time, conservatories can damage easily, and the repair process can be expensive. That is why we recommend the use of soft washing as an alternative to the pressure washing process since it is more conservative to your roof.
High-pressure cleaning can damage your conservatory roof when used in the moss, algae, and mould removal process. Additionally, household cleaning products can damage the seals and the coatings of your conservatories.
The shields are essential because they shield your family from UV rays. Additionally, trying to reach all the parts of your roof when cleaning can be a hazardous process. Our Conservatory roof cleaning services will carry this burden for you.
We have the right equipment and expertise to remove any mould or moss on your roof. We use specialised chemicals and a gentle water cleaning system to give you a transparent shine and lasting cleanliness.
We incorporate low pressures when cleaning to prevent damage. Before starting, we look for any leak points in your roof. The aim is to avoid any moisture exposure to the interior of your conservatories.
Our ladders and poles will also not exert any unnecessary pressure on your roof. We will reach every part of your roof when cleaning safely. Additionally, our cleaning chemicals and products only remove moss, mould, or algae.
It does not affect any other flowers or plants that you might have on your conservatories. Also, we ensure that our Conservatory roof cleaning process eliminates the moss and dirt for a long time before they resurface.
You can rely on our thorough, gentle, and long-lasting conservatory cleaning process.
Wall and render cleaning Services
If you have a rendered wall, be prepared for the growth of lichen, moss, and mould. The damp climate in the nation is especially very conducive to the growth of algae and moss. If this has happened to your building, we have the solution you need.
Our wall and render cleaning services incorporate advanced technology to ensure that your walls stay free from moss and lichen.
There are common mistakes that are made when cleaning moss and green algae on walls:
Using high pressure to wash your walls and render might get rid of the moss and algae on the surface. But it will create more problems for you in the future. Any cracks in your wall and render will absorb the water creating a breeding ground for new algae and mould to grow.
Painting is not taking care of the problem as well. Instead, it is masking the problem well, making it an inefficient and costly process.
We use steam cleaning, soft wash techniques, and algae cleaner for your render. Our methods will gently remove the lichen and prevent future growth. We carefully select the products for cleaning the moss to ensure that you experience no regrowth.
Additionally, the gentle cleaners we use will not damage your wall and renders. If your building is severely damaged, we employ more than one treatment by planning for a second treatment plan, usually at least four weeks after the initial treatment.
In the second visit, we use low-pressure washing and sealing to ensure that no rapid regrowth of the mould and algae is experienced.
Soffits and fascia cleaning and Gutter cleaning Services
In most cases, the soffit and fascia boards are overlooked when cleaning. However, the two are significant aesthetic features of your home. Therefore, we aim to give you clean and sparkling fascias, bargeboards, soffits, and gutters.
We also remove any moss, algae, or surface dirt from your gutters, soffits, and fascia.
Also, modern houses today have white uPVC roofline systems in the place of traditional soffits and fascia. If you have had uPVC for a while, you might notice the appearance of black and green on your building. This is an indication that algae and dirt are starting to build on your roofline.
Rainwater is a significant cause of the growth of algae and moss on the soffits and fascia. If this is your home, use our services to restore your house to its initial perfect aesthetic condition.
Our wash and reach systems will keep your walls and renders clean. Our services also include the clearing of your gutter of all debris and the flashing of all your downpipes. We will ensure that your gutter is working perfectly.
Regular cleaning will also keep your uPVC from discolouring and your gutters clear from blockages. The recommended cleaning period is at least once every year.
External house cleaning Services
When you want to clean the outside parts of your house, there are certain things you need to ask yourself.
With our external house cleaning services, you will not need to worry about the answers to these questions.
First, we use water blasting to get rid of any moss, lichen, and mould on your exterior surfaces. However, this will ultimately depend on the type and nature of your surface. After all, high pressure is known to cause damage to surfaces.
Therefore, we are very particular and safe with our moss removal water blasting services.
Second, if your exterior compound is made of large concrete, we use surface cleaners for our external house cleaning services. Surface cleaners are a fast and effective method of removing mould from concrete.
After cleaning, we sweep the area with a lance and nozzle to get rid of moss and dirt on edges.
The bottom line is, whether you have water stains, algae, or black growth in your home, we have the cleaning solution for you.
