How can I clean my Conservatory roof?
Living in the UK, and it’s forever changing weather can mean keeping a conservatory roof clean is a job you come to dread. Dirt and grime build up over the weeks from leaves, animal droppings, and particles carried in rainfall.
If left a conservatory roof can quickly build up moss and mould, it can damage your conservatory’s structure and seals. When damage like this occurs, it can make your conservatory an unpleasant room to use and in some cases cause leaks, further damaging the inside of the space.
How Often Should I Clean My Conservatory Roof?
Like many items exposed to the elements, the more care and attention you give it, the better it will look and longer it will last. By cleaning it regularly, you are lessening the chance of any damage or leaks occurring.
We would advise you to clean your conservatory roof at least twice a year. Once in Spring, to start the year and once towards the end of Autumn and when all the leaves have fallen, and winter is beginning.
What’s the Best Way to Clean My Conservatory Roof?
Do it yourself
The cheapest way to clean your conservatory roof is to do it yourself. You can purchase a roof cleaning kit relatively cheaply. We would recommend it includes:
• A telescopic extendable window cleaning pole
• X3 changeable heads (a stiff brush to take off the moss, a soft brush head to take off the tough stains from the glass and a glass squeegee to remove any watermarks)
• Glass safe soap
Hire a Local Roof Cleaner
Have a look in local magazines and paper, or search for your local conservatory cleaning services online. This option takes away the hard work for you but comes with a cost. This extra financial commitment is worth considering when replacing a conservatory roof with a material that needs lots of upkeep such a glass panels. We would recommend checking out any tradesperson on Trustpilot to check their work and recommendations.
Is there a way to solve this issue altogether?
Consider installing insulated roof panels. Greenspace UK provides bespoke insulated roof panels designed to reduce the amount of dirt and grime that can stick to your roof. As a result, your conservatory roof will require less cleaning than a traditional polycarbonate or glass roof.
Not only do our panels require less cleaning, but they will also keep your conservatory warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer. If you want to learn more about how we can help transform your conservatory or to get a quote contact us here
