Great Outdoors and In were initially contacted via the new owner of this property located in Watford, Hertfordshire, As they were after a professional roof cleaning company to carry out the clean. On buying the property their surveyor had reported that the roof needed to be cleaned, due to the moss growth, as moss was actually starting to lift the tiles causing dampness.
Great Outdoors and In cleaned the roof using ‘controlled’ pressure washing and as normal using rope access for safety and our ‘water recycling system’.
The recycling stopped large volumes of water from building up in the old guttering. In total Great outdoors and In removed over 40 rubble bags of waste including moss and leaves from the roof and associative guttering. As required by law Great Outdoors and In are licensed Waste carriers in order to remove moss and debris from 'site'.
Once the roof tiles were cleaned the roof tiles were treated with a fungicidal wash to kill any remaining moss spores. The flat dormer roofs had large amounts of moss on the felt, so as to not harm the felt we removed the majority of this by hand, and any remaining moss was treated with the fungicidal wash to eliminate it. All the Upvc and guttering was cleared including blocked downpipes. Great Outdoors and In then installed ‘Hedgehog gutter brush’ in the gutter to prevent any blockages occurring in the future.
