Tile Roof Cleaning Melbourne
Rainshield Roofing are experts in roof cleaning Melbourne and can offer a range of services to clean your roof and ensure unsightly lichen and moss stays away for years to come. Before we start, some properties with high roofs or steep pitches will require safety rail to be installed. Once we are confident our trades people can proceed safely we start by pressure cleaning your roof with a high pressure sprayer at 4100 PSI. This is very important, as too much pressure can damage your roof tiles but if the pressure is too low, it’s sometimes not enough to remove all the sediment.
During the roof cleaning process we will also treat your roof with sodium hypochlorite to ensure anything that is not blasted away with the pressure spray will destroyed by the treatment. The sodium hypochlorite will also make sure the moss and lichen won’t return for years to come. While the roof is being cleaned, our professional trade’s people will identity any tiles likely to leak and replace them as well as move chipped or other unsightly tiles to your gutter line leaving all the tiles on the visible parts of the roof looking great.

What occupation health and safety measures are required to clean a roof?
The safety requirements are generally based on the the type of roof you have and its current state of conditions. Cement tiles are less slippery than terracotta tiles, so we always erect safety rail (fall prevention) to terracotta tile roofs where as we don’t always erect safety rial for single story for cement tile roofs.
We always use safety rails for doubles story properties and for some homes that have unique characteristics such at a high pitch roof or a roof that has a high roof line on a slopping block, we sometimes use scaffold.
