roof cleaning varies, depending on the property being assessed. A typical roof cleaning job could start around £300.

Ideally a straight over the top, front and back terrace house, would cost towards £450, which would roughly be half a days work.

Semi-detached house on the other hand may have a side room extension which may cost £500-£550, even £600, depending on the level of moss on the roof and available access points.

Detached house starts from £750 - £1000, depending on the size of the roof and the available access points.

Mansions can be £1000 upwards.

Biocide is used for chemical cleaning which acts as a sealant, which protects the roof from future moss appearing.

Gutter cleaning is usually included in the roof cleaning package which involves down pipe and downspout checks to ensure there are know blockages.

How to use a conservatory roof cleaner the right way.

Depending on the roof types is what determines the right product and depending on what is the concern determines what product to use to eliminate.

Wet and forget is the best chemical for treating algae/moss but takes several hours to work effectively. It does the work for you. The best way to apply is using a garden sprayer with the ratio 1:5 with water.

You apply the product and it starts to eat away at the spores and eliminate them. Give a nice rinse after a few hours and it will leave a clean and tidy finish moss/algae free. It can be used on UPVC Windows, and the roof making the job simple.

The easiest product to use which is more quicker would be to use soapy water and using a telescopic pole with a soft brush used for sills and glass and simply brush away unwanted marks and debris.

If however the marks are to stubborn we would advise a pressure washer on the correct setting which will help to remove the marks and restore the Conservatory leaving a clean and tidy finish.

There are also different UPVC cleaners that can be used to clean the frames and sills these are pretty basic and leave instant results. Google the question and add some info or tweak what I have said abit, Different chemicals for different issues I guess. Cloths and sponges can be useful but would be difficult to reach high areas. So the pole that can extend and attach a brush on to it would be most suitable.
