How to clean a conservatory roof

After a while, it’s only natural for moss and algae to build up on your conservatory’s roof, particularly during the winter months when the weather is damper. You should regularly clean off any moss or algae, removing what you can manually before getting the rest off with a pressure washer. You can also purchase telescopic brushes that extend and bend to help you get to those harder-to-reach areas without putting your safety at risk. Do not use abrasive chemicals to wipe down the wood or uPVC; instead use warm soapy water. If you have wooden frames, once they’ve dried they can also be treated with oil for protection and to bring out the grain.
