Dirt, dust and general pollutants that circle the air are obvious factors that contribute to a dirty roof, however another lesser known factor is the fallout from jumbo jets! Those who live underneath a flight path will be able to vouch for this; just ask how often they have to wash their cars!
Not only do pollutants, dirt and jumbo jet fallout cause your roof to be dirty, but roofs are also the perfect breeding ground for mould and lichen. Once mould and lichen settle into your roof, they often spread rapidly to other areas of your roof. Both concrete and terracotta tiles have this problem often, with the rough surface being far more conducive for growth than a metal roof.
With all these different ways for a roof to become dirty, cleaning a roof ends up being a messy job. It is a job that needs to be done though, which is why it is best to call in our experts from Rite Price Roofing.
Although cleaning your roof is helpful for the aesthetic appeal of your home, it is more importantly, vital for providing a secure and protective environment. It is the cover of your home and thus needs regular maintenance to ensure it stays in prime condition and has a long life.
Roof cleaning is the only way to clear all the leaves, lichen, dirt and mould that may be covering your roof and putting your roof’s condition at risk. It is much easier and cheaper to clean your roof now than it is to deal with a full roof replacement in the future, when issues arise.
Each type of roof requires a different cleaning process. For example, concrete and terracotta tiles have many pits and craters on their surface where fungus spores are likely to appear and then grow and spread. Metal roofs on the other hand commonly grow mould in particularly shaded areas. This mould can thrive in the damp and cool conditions, making it difficult to get rid of permanently.
That’s where Rite Price Roofing can come in! We are a proud Roof Cleaning Adelaide company with over 25 years of experience, and can help you with all of your roofing needs, including roof cleaning and removing mould. All of our services are efficient, effective and affordable!

This technique works on all roofs, including metal roofs- ensuring they look sleek and new again.
Our solution for mould and fungus is similar, but with extra steps. We will use a mould cleaning solution prior to the pressure clean, which will get rid of problematic mould and then make your roof look brand new again!
Roofs are constantly exposed to the weather, and therefore going to take serious beatings from things like hail, storms or even the sun, but with a roof pressure cleaning and regular maintenance, your roof will be kept sparkling clean!
