Roof Mould, Mildew and Lichen Can Damage Paint

In its early stages, roof mould is completely invisible to the naked eye. It’s not until the more advanced stages that it actually turns black and becomes visible. So if you can see mould on even one section of your roof that means that it’s probably already taking hold on your entire roof.

Mould and mildew starts to grow on your roof because of dirt build up and the humidity, it can look like dark streaks running down your roof.

The patches on your roof where lichen is growing can hold onto moisture longer, this can reduce the life of your paint. Lichen can be light green or white in colour, it grows in flower like clusters over your roof.

What mould, mildew and lichen have in common is that they look ugly and they damage your paint. We can pressure clean your roof, remove the unsightly growths and have your home looking beautiful in just a few hours

Chemical Roof Cleaning

This process involves applying a cleaning agent to the roof, giving it time to react with the build up of mould and lichen on the roof. Once this is done the agent is washed off with water, leaving a clean finish. *Conditions apply.​


The Roof Cleaning Process

  • We follow health and safety regulations regarding height safety. Harness or edge protection is required for heights above 2.1meter (to gutter line). Our technicians are trained in this area.
  • We follow EPA and Council requirements regarding waste water. If required, we capture and pump waste water away from stormwater entry.​
  • Our roof cleaning process is a similar process to pressure cleaning external hard surfaces. We have adapted our rotary washers to be used on roofs in the same manner you would use them on the ground. Our machines are water efficient.

Please note: A roof clean does not include the pergola roof; please inform us if you want this done.

Gutter cleaning is an additional service not included in the roof clean; if your gutters have debris and you want them cleaned out, please inform us when booking.

We also offer an anti-mould spray for a small additional fee that can be applied once the roof has been cleaned. This keeps the mould and mildew at bay for longer and protects your roof.

Don’t spend thousands of dollars on restoring your roof when all it may need is a speciality clean from House Washing Australia.

Upon booking with us, we will send you our “Roof Cleaning Preparation” information, which explains everything you need to know to protect your property before our arrival.

We can send you an annual “it’s time for your external cleaning” reminder, so you don’t need to worry. It’s as easy as “yes please” or “opt out”

For customers that have water tanks fed from the roof guttering system, please disconnect or divert the downpipe(s) prior to our arrival to avoid tainted water entering the tank. If you are unable to do this please advise us so we can assist where possible.

Please remove any items in the immediate areas that may be affected by dirty water fallout from roof; for example: furniture, toys, washing on clothesline.
