Keeping your roof clean is important for extending the lifespan of your shingles and preserving the outside appearance of your property.

We are a specialist provider of roof cleaning services nationwide, utilising advanced tools and solutions to deliver you results. What's more, we never leave the site of the clean unless you're happy with the standard of work performed.

In this blog, we take a look at some of the key benefits of roof cleaning on your property.

Prevents damage from water

Not looking after your roof can cause many issues for you, including shingles becoming damaged or broken. Water damage may occur as a result.

Contaminated water creates various health risks for humans, so a leak in your building is particularly troublesome. If you notice any shingle breakage on your roof, call in the professionals immediately to prevent the issue from worsening. 

Water damage has wider-reaching consequences too, such as for the interior of your property. For instance, possessions are often ruined from water damage, and are expensive to replace.

You should also be alert to the presence of mould, which can spread quickly through your property. We offer specialist remediation services for this fungi - click here to find out more.  

Enhances your property's appearance

One of the benefits of maintaining your roofing is that it enhances your property's appearance. This is particularly advantageous if you are looking to sell the building, as its exterior can be a key selling point for potential buyers.

Though a dirty roof isn't always synonymous with deeper issues, it is wise to have the roof cleaned regularly to keep it looking in great condition. 

It will iterate to prospective buyers that you have carefully upheld the state of your house during your time there, increasing your chances of selling the property.

As a central tenet of any building, roof cleaning is important. Professional cleaners can remove biological growth such as moss and algae to restore your roof.

Increases its lifespan

Substances such as moss and algae are frequently located on the surface of your roof, and can cause many problems including reducing its lifespan. 

They are especially found in north-facing areas of the property, or in areas that don't get much sunlight. They can cause mould to form from the damp conditions as well as lead to damaged shingles over time. 

Replacing your roof can cost a significant amount of money, so taking the time to properly care for it is important. This is where professional roof cleaning can help you.

Having your roof work regularly serviced will help extend the lifespan of the shingles by keeping them in good and clean repair. At ICE Cleaning, our technicians use their years of experience in the field to remove the most stubborn of substances.

Stops gutters from becoming clogged

Dirt and debris that collects on your roof can lead to your gutters becoming clogged. If this happens, they will not be able to effectively dis-spell rainwater away from your property. 

Water may also begin to collect on the surface of the roof if there is no room for it to flow into your gutters. Make sure to prevent this from happening by employing the help of specialist cleaning services. 

Generally, gutters should be serviced twice a year as well to ensure they are in proper working order. They are a central component in protecting your building from the outside elements, so it is important that they are carefully maintained.

At ICE Cleaning, our roof cleaners are able to clean your gutters of any debris that has appeared. We're IPAF accredited too, which means we can work safely at height during our work.

Could save you on energy costs

The presence of biological growth on your building can reduce the energy efficiency of your house. Having a clean roof reflects sunlight back rather than consuming it.

Be sure to have your roof serviced to help stop this from becoming an issue. You need to be particularly aware of this potential problem in the winter time, when energy costs typically rise.
