Over time, warehouse roofs gather all types of grime, so you may be looking into getting rid of black spots or advanced moss removal. Maintaining a clean warehouse roof often gets overlooked, which can lead to costly issues further down the line while bringing down the entire look of a facility.

Jet washing is a highly effective technique for keeping large surfaces clean and in good repair, ensuring a long-lasting structure that makes the right impression.

Here’s everything you need to know about jet washing warehouse roofs.

Why keep your warehouse roof clean?

Keeping warehouse roofs as clean as possible helps maintain the building’s structural integrity. Particles like airborne dirt, moss and algae can soon build-up on the surface, leading to increased moisture retention, additional weight on the roof and eventual damage like rust and rot. This may compromise the warehouse’s external protection and its internal contents.

Clean surfaces are also more energy efficiency. Grime can decrease a roof’s ability to reflect heat away from the building, increasing indoor temperatures and leading to higher cooling costs in the warmer months of the year.

How do you jet wash a warehouse roof?

Regularly jet washing roofs can extend their lifespan. It should form part of your warehouse maintenance plan, helping to identify and resolve any roofing issues early before they become more significant. Well maintained roofing also presents a more professional image to clients and visitors.

Jet washing warehouse roofing requires careful planning to ensure a safe process and effective results. Use an experienced jet washing company with expertise in warehouse cleaning. They’ll assess your premises and business needs before the clean to identify risks and plan good safety protocols.

During external roof cleaning, any large debris stuck up there will be manually removed. Sensitive equipment or materials should be removed from below if there’s a risk of water run-off. Some companies will apply a cleaning solution, but jet washing mainly involves pressurised water streams that easily remove dirt and grime. Delicate surfaces may require soft washing, which is a low-pressure technique.

Can you clean the inside of warehouse roofs too?

As well as exterior cleaning, the inside of warehouse roofs can also be dealt with. This can remove industrial dust, cobwebs and airborne dirt coming from within the warehouse. Interior cleaning can maintain a clean indoor environment, improve air quality and protect goods.

A jet washing company will often need space to access the warehouse with specialist cranes, which will help them reach the interior side of the roofing. They’ll sometimes use long poles to get into all the necessary spots.
