Tile Roof Cleaning – How It Is Done

by Mike Aurtho Pressure & Steam

With each passing year, the tiles on the roof of your home are exposed to the fury of nature. If you fail to give proper attention to the tiles, they begin looking dilapidated. Moss, mould, mildew and tree sap begin accumulating on the roof tiles creating the roof look old and ugly.

 

Most people give lots of attention to window, doors and floor cleaning of their home, however most of the times they overlook the roof because it is out of sight and thus out of cleaning schedule. So, what are the reasons that should influence you to clean your roof tiles?

 

Here are the 3 main benefits of cleaning the tiles on your roof.

 

  • Roof cleaning will detect early signs of damages
  • Roof cleaning will extend the lifetime of your roof

 

  • Tile Roof Cleanup Procedure

 

Remember that cleaning the roof tiles need talent and skill of an expert. A professional cleaner will do their job in the following steps:

 

1. Starting With Power Washing

 

The first step is to clean the roof tiles with high pressure water to get rid of the loose dirt, rubble together with twigs, insects, leaves etc. Pressure water is usually applied from the ridge and then going down towards the gutter. After this the roof will be allowed to dry out fully.

 

2. Chemical Treatment

 

Power washing once more, however now utilising less water pressure compared to the first wash, and employing a chemical solution which is sprayed everywhere on the dry tiles. This method of tile cleaning in Sydney allows the chemical to enter the pores of the roof tiles. It’s strongly suggested to allow the chemicals remain on the tiles for some time, in order to loosen the remaining debris on the tiles.

 

3. Final Rinsing

 

The final thing performed is to wash and get rid of the chemicals, and maybe it can prove to be the most difficult job of the whole method. It largely depends on the extent the dirt, rubble and moss has accumulated over the years, and the stubbornness of the roof tiles stains. High water pressure is applied to get rid of dirt and stains from every part of the roof.

 

4. Thorough Cleaning Of The Gutters

 

After complete removal of the dirt and chemicals from roof tiles, the next tasks on which the professional roof cleaners focus their attention are the gutters. The dirt and rubble get accumulated in the gutters and should be removed properly in order to avoid choking and clustering of the gutters.

 

5. Final Examination, Repairing And Repainting

 

The roof tiles are then inspected properly by the professional cleaners to search any cracks or breakages. If there’s any broken roof tiles then they are replaced. After the roof is resealed and repainted to give it a complete makeover.
