Over time, dirt can irrecoverably damage your roof, meaning you may have to fork out for a whole new one. If a specialist clean could prevent this expense, and leave you with an attractive and durable roof, why wouldn't you?
Moss, algae, lichen, dirt – all of these substances can build up on a neglected roof, resulting in cracks and gaps that can reduce the strength of the roof.

Cleaning an asbestos roof
When you blast an asbestos roof with a power washer, you'll end up spreading harmful asbestos fibres everywhere. These are invisible and can be hidden among the dirt. This is a sure way to land yourself in a lot of expensive trouble. This is why it's essential to use contractors that are experienced in following HSE guidelines.
