Our Recommended Roof Washing Method:

Adjustable Pressure Roof Cleaning + Low Pressure Mould Inhibitor

A proper cleaning by experienced roof cleaners like House Washing Experts™ is done with an adjustable bristle pressure cleaner followed by a low-pressure mould inhibitor. Adjustable pressure cleaning will help remove the vast majority of all dirt, mould, moss and lichen on your roof. And to make sure that everything has been removed, we follow it up with a complimentary and environment-friendly low-pressure mould inhibitor (around 60 psi) that keeps your roof clean on a microbial level.

This adheres to the standards of CSIRO, Bluescope Steel (which is Australia’s largest manufacturer of Colorbond roofing), and EPA (Environmental Protection Authority). Our team of roof cleaning specialists at House Washing Experts does not recommend utilising a chemical cleaning procedure with a higher concentrated chemical cleaner, which is also known as soft washing. 

Chemicals may damage your roof, and any runoffs will create issues with certain areas of your home, as well as, your landscape. However, when you hire the right roof cleaning company in Brisbane, they will use their expertise to determine the best balance that will guarantee effectiveness while preserving your property.

Roof Maintenance Service Frequently Asked Questions 

 

Why Do We Recommend Adjustable Pressure Roof Cleaning in Australia

At House Washing Experts, we believe that adjustable pressure cleaning is the key to keep your roof in its pristine glory. Don’t let the word “pressure” intimidate you. We are capable of rendering pressure cleaning methods in an adjustable manner, depending on your roof’s type and current condition. Simply put, we can clean your roof with an adjustable bristle pressure cleaner, followed by an eco-friendly mould treatment for optimal cleaning.

Colorbond Roof Cleaning and Terracotta Roof Cleaning?

In Australia, most houses have terracotta, cement/concrete tiles, or Colorbond/iron roofing. BlueScope Steel, the Australia’s largest manufacturer of Colorbond and Zinc alum roofing material, recommends that no solvents (e.g. chlorine, sodium hypochlorite, harsh soap etc.) should be used when it comes to exterior cleaning. This is what soft washing does. Soft washing utilises chemical cleaners that can cause harsh damages to your roof. A spray would kill and destroy everything it touches. In our eyes, it is an easy but unethical, and overpriced way of cleaning a roof.

What are the Effects of Soft Washing in Roofs and the Environment?

Soft washing is not a recommended roof cleaning method in Australia, despite the opinions and recommendations of others. This is for the fact that most residential properties are made from hard or concrete styled roofing materials that require safer and more delicate cleaning products and equipment.

The cleaning solution used in soft washing includes various chemical cleaners in high concentration. This should only be sprayed with the recommended 98% water and 2% cleaning solution to avoid damaging the integrity of the roofing surface and any adjacent vegetation. But unbeknownst to the public, some cleaning companies exceed the limit to get the job done.

Most homeowners are not aware that certain cleaning solutions pose potential risks to humans, animals and to the environment.

Typical household cleaners like ammonia and phosphorous can potentially increase nutrient pollution in streams and lakes coming from water systems from residential properties. This will cause the bloom of algae, which depletes oxygen in the natural bodies of water. As a standard of ethical practice, House Washing Experts use effective and biodegradable phosphate-free cleaning agents with neutral acidity or pH.

If you have opted for soft washing before, ask your roof cleaning company about the chemicals they are using. SH (Sodium Hypochlorite, also known as “bleach”) is the general go-to product due to its strong cleaning ability and cheap purchase price.

To keep your home clean, safe and healthy, below are cleaning compounds you need to stay away from:

  • Ammonia – This is toxic and poisonous when inhaled, swallowed, or touched.
  • Antibacterials & Disinfectants – These include a whole list of ingredients ranging from bleach to triclosan. When you overuse one of these types of products, it can contribute to antibiotic-resistant bacteria.
  • Butyl Glycol, Ethylene Glycol, Monobutyl – These are commonly found in general cleaners and can damage the nervous system, kidney and liver.
  • Chlorine Bleach – This is extremely strong, corrosive, and irritating to both eyes and lungs.
  • Petroleum Solvents – These are the most common chemicals found in many cleaning products as surfactants. Other derivatives, such as formaldehyde, can also be found in different cleaning agents in your home.
  • Phosphates – These chemicals are extremely harmful to aquatic life and often found in detergents and dish soaps.
  • Phthalates – These chemicals disrupt hormones composed of complex synthetic fragrances.
    .

If you work with other companies, some of them will recommend you the soft washing method on concrete/cement tiles, terracotta or Colorbond/Iron surface. This is what they offer for your peace of mind. However, low-pressure chemical cleaning is still ineffective. It might be strong enough to penetrate the surface deeply, but it will still leave your roof dirty despite the effort of cleaning it.

All in all, soft washing is not the best and only solution for your roof cleaning needs.

Compare the Costs: Roof Cleaning Services vs Roof Replacement

Cost To Clean A Roof

There are several factors in determining the correct roof cleaning cost in Brisbane. This includes the location, access and pitch, current age and material the roof is made of.

The cheapest roof materials are Colorbond, cement, iron and trim decking.

The cost for cleaning such material sits at $1.70 per square meter with an average price between $400 – $800.

Terracotta roofing, although gorgeous, sits at the top for the most expensive material to clean. A slower, more intricate clean is required for a solid terracotta roof needs to be performed.

The cost of cleaning a terracotta roof sits at $3.90 per square metre. Fortunately, most terracotta roofs are smaller than your average-sized home, bringing the average cost between $600 – $900.

Cost To Restore A Roof

The cheapest roofing material is concrete tiles, followed by steel, clay/stone tiles with Colorbond at the end of the scale. The cost of supply and installation can vary widely, but expect to pay around $50 to $70 per square metre for high-quality metal roofing. The cost of tile roofs varies, but as a rule of thumb, tile roofs cost between $80 to $110 per square metre, supplied and laid.

Expect to pay in the range of:

  • $8 to $10 per square metre for the sarking

  • $40 to $60 per square metre for concrete tiled roofing

  • $50 to $70 per square metre for steel roofing

  • $80 to $110 per square metre for terracotta tiled roofing

  • $200 to $500 per square metre for traditional slate tiled roof

Quotes will be based on the size of your roof and the complexity of the roof design.
