The scrapers are generally used on long poles and many roofs can be cleaned from ground level or from a scaffold tower.. or a roof ladder saving money of the use of big hire equipment and lifts..

Generally we aim to get around 90% of the moss off the roof and then apply the SoftWash Treatment. The SoftWash Treatment will kill any remaining loos moss in the cracks and crevices or that stubborn moss that wont quite scrape off.. Many people often opt just to have the roof treated without being scraped and allow the weather cycles to wash away any remaining moss over several months.. you will be intitled to have 12 months free gutter clearing after a Treatment and a 5 year moss free warrantee which is backed by SoftWash Systems

When your roof is being treated you will be asked to get any washing in and keep your pets and children inside to keep you safe. Whilst the treatment is being carried out it will smell a bit like a swimming pool. The reason for this is we use a SoftWash Blend system the mixes specific amounts of sodium hypochlorite, greenwash and water. These chemicals haven been lab tested and are safe to use on roofs to kill moss, algae and fungus.
