Is roof cleaning necessary?
Yes it is. One of the largest roof tile manufacturers in the UK is Marley Tiles and their maintenance blog clearly states that :
“moss and lichen should be removed to avoid possible water ingress into the roof space.”
There are numerous other independent sources online all making clear that regular roof maintenance, roof cleaning and moss removal are necessary to prolong the life expectancy and effectiveness of a tiled roof.
Excessive moss on a roof can hamper the flow of rainwater down a roof into the gutters from where water it is directed into the drains. Roof moss acts like a sponge and soaks up large amounts of water for prolonged periods of time. This means the tiles underneath the moss are kept permanently damp and this can lead to cracks and damage to roof tiles and water then entering the roof.
Moss also grows into mortar joints that hold ridge tiles in place and it can easily crack, damage and loosen joints leading to loose and unsafe tiles.

Roof moss removal
We remove moss from roofs by gently scraping away the moss using specialist, professional moss removal tools designed for clearing away moss from roof tiles.
These scrapers are attached to long reach telescopic poles and we manually remove the roof moss.
We access the roof using specially developed scaffold towers for commercial use that take us up to the height of the roof and guttering, and from this stable platform we are able to clean away. This link to the UK Health and Safety Executive website provides more detailed information on scaffold towers and their use.
