Moss, mould (fungi) and algae generally only pose a minimal health danger, some are harmful, especially for older people, younger children and people who suffer from asthma and respiratory problems. Different mould species can have varying health effects, but it is worth considering that any excessive mould growth should be removed, regardless of the species.
Process of Moss Removal
- Cover the ground with a tarpaulin/cover
- Erect access equipment – ladders, ridge ladders and access towers
- Disconnect gutters from rainwater pipes and remove moss using an instrument such as a scraper
- Use a brush to sweep the loose moss from the roof
- Replace any broken tiles
- Clear out the gutters and reconnect the rainwater pipes
- Treat the tiles with a surface biocide to stop moss/algae/lichen from suddenly growing back
- Carry out any minor repairs – usually gaps in cement, small roof repairs etc
- Dispose of waste
- Re-apply the biocide every few years to keep moss growth in check

Roof tiles are continuously attacked by the elements and become porous with age, as a result tiles loose colour and become susceptible to the growth of moss and lichens. When carried out by experienced professionals, protective roof coatings and sealers are the perfect solution and a much cheaper option and a viable alternative to having a complete replacement roof. In most cases there is no need to pay out for a new roof.
One of the most important benefits of the roof cleaning process is that once complete, the roof will have been returned to its optimum condition. If any tiles are found to be loose or damaged they will be replaced. On most roofs in excess of 20 years old some of the mortar to the exposed ridges, hips, valleys and eaves will be starting to deteriorate. Wherever present this old mortar will be removed and these areas will be re-pointed.
