Here at The Roof Moss Cleaners Ltd we are experts at cleaning clay roof tiles, an area in which many other roof cleaning companies fall short on.
We’ve seen and fixed the damage caused to fragile clay roofs by inexperienced contractors offering cheap roof cleaning prices on many occasions and our team is proud that the oldest clay roof they have cleaned dates back to the 1700’s!
When it comes to cleaning clay roofs we firmly believe that there is no better roof cleaner up to the challenge.
I will share our process for cleaning clay tiles, but before we do, just remember that physically going onto clay roof tiles is a bad idea – they are very fragile. The process of cleaning the tiles should be carried out using telescopic poles from access towers or MEWP’s (Cherry Pickers).
Cleaning Traditional, Handmade Clay Roof Tiles
Our method of cleaning old, fragile handmade tiles is to use an access tower to give a safe work platform at rain gutter height in order to scrape the tiles using telescopic roof scraping tools. Where an access tower is not the best solution for access we would propose the hire of a cherry picker in order to access the roof and scrape the clay tiles.
Once moss has been manually removed the gutters are then scraped, everything tidied up perfectly at ground level and taken away for safe and legal disposal.
Cleaning Modern Clay Tiles
Modern clay tiles can be cleaned manually using the process detailed above for traditional, handmade clay roof tiles or using steam cleaning techniques.
With steam cleaning your modern clay tiles are cleaned using superheated water at low pressure, the process does involve the use of both a professional grade pressure washing machine along with a boiler which heats the water to 150 degrees as it passes through the boiler.
The roof is cleaned using a combination of a small FSC (Flat surface cleaner) & Turbo Nozzle on the end of the telescopic roof cleaning pole – meaning a controlled and efficient clean is always delivered.
