Low Pressure Soft Wash Roof Cleaning Melbourne

Roof Moss and Lichen Cleaning with just water and eco friendly products

Roof cleaning using low pressure water gives great results but not right away. So if you are looking to sell you want an instant result, then this might not be the system for you.
High pressure gives instant results, but our low pressure soft wash system gives a better result over a long period of time.
It does this by killing off the mould spores, the lichens and mosses and leaves a residue on your roof that remains active so your roof will stay lichen and moss free for us to 3 years.
Because we can’t kill lichen and moss spores that are in the air, a long lasting clean roof can be achieved with our eco spray that's applied as part of the cleaning process.
These products are not harmful and are bio degradable.
The lichens and mosses are removed by the wet and dry cycle in the weather, any spores remaining will be killed off.
You get great street appeal because most roofs occupy about 40-60% of the front view of your home.

What’s the product you use?

We use an Eco friendly wall render cleaning product that kills algae, lichens and moss. Now lichens feed off the algae, so if you kill the algae you get rid of the lichen, and moss gets killed off in the process as well.

Our product is so safe that its authorised for use in children’s play areas and will kill the bacteria on artificial playing surfaces that can make a graze or a cut turn septic.

After the product has been activated by contact with the algae and lichen it then breaks down naturally within about 48 hours.

So we have to understand the type of organism that’s making your wall render look bad. Usually black streaky marks or a green algae that looks green or a green algae that sometimes produces a red stain.

These green algae are usually taken care of by spraying with a gentle spray that does no harm to the render at all. In fact its so mild it does not harm any construction material including your paintwork.

How treating, and caring for your render works

clean wall render black streaks
The black markings are caused by a fungal organism growing within the pores of the wall render where they extract minerals from the render and use these minerals to form a mouldy looking paste to protect themselves from UV light.

These types or organisms can really make porous stone like sandstone look a real mess and the longer it remains the more difficult it is to get rid of. So we have to decide if firstly we remove the black stuff, or kill off the organism. This is where our expertise and experience comes in, as we can’t use high pressure water cleaning on porous stones or porous wall render without destroying the surface. We have an alkaline gel that we spread over the surface first, to remove the black encrusted surface then we apply our eco friendly product to kill off the organism that’s causing the problem.

Tiled roofs self clean a lot easier than walls, so we have to help nature along. Algae on wall renders wash away but where the contamination is deeper as it is with a fungi, then we have to apply another product to ensure removal of the filaments with the porous nature of the wall render or stonework.

So that’s how its done - we eliminate the algae, black streaks and lichen all in one visit. A bit of work, patience and knowledge go a long way towards getting your property looking great again.

Remember it will stay that way for some time - at least 2 years with no visible contamination.

Don’t use high pressure water, or brush with a stiff brush because it will do mechanical damage to your wall render.

Don’t use steam because it can damage the acrylic based resins in the wall render.

Both these options are a temporary fix as the algae and fungi spores start growing again as soon as the job is finished.

Just call us and we’ll do the job properly, and you will get a great job that lasts.
