Benefits of our roof cleaning Edinburgh?
Moss and algae clinging to roof tiles are unsightly but also if left for too long can cause damage. The roof tiles can begin to decay as the lichen and moss take hold and their roots find their way into the porous top layer of the clay. The moss holds moisture on the roof, feeding from it so it’s a dwindling spiral that isn’t going to improve without intervention. The longer you leave it the worse it gets. It’s quite a straightforward and painless procedure to get rid of it though. Here you can see the difference roof cleaning in edinburgh can make to the overall appearance of your roof.
