All roofing and cladding products are subject to the cumulative effects of weather, dust and other deposits. Normal rain water washing will remove most accumulative atmospheric contaminants from your roof, manual washing every 3 to 12 months, depending on the paint system, is recommended in moderate to very severe environments to prevent accumulation of dirt, debris or other material not removed by rain water.
For areas that do not receive any or adequate rain washing such as soffits, wall cladding under eaves, underside of gutters, fascias, sheltered areas of garage doors and unwashed roof areas, more extensive manual washing is required. Similarly, other high-risk areas, around flues, under television aerials or overhanging trees and sites prone to mould, lichen, bird droppings or debris, need to have regular manual washing.
