Guide to Maintaining & Cleaning Your Archgola Suntuf Roofing System
By Archgola Admin | October 2021
All exterior surfaces are subject to the rigors of the outdoors and when it comes to your Archgola PSP Suntuf roof, it is not immune. As a year goes by, four seasons come and go exposing the surfaces to many mixed and varied environmental conditions from sun, wind, rain to hot or cold conditions, the end result could see the emergence of moss, mould, mildew, algae and lichen on the polycarbonate / acrylic surfaces.
These exterior issues arise purely from the environment. The moss, mould, mildew & lichen spores are in the air every day, the wind circulates them around blowing them onto areas that are shaded and damp – usually the southern areas of the house and usually over winter. They settle there and as they like a particular situation they will attach themselves to the surface and grow (spread). Sometimes issues like black mould just simply may relate to the environment and location the property is at and can cover the surface.
How to keep your Suntuf roof looking great?
You can keep your Archgola PSP Suntuf roof looking great with regular cleaning with a soft brush and warm soapy water. But when it comes to moss, mould, mildew & lichen a more specific treatment process is recommended to rid the surface if these problems. Lichen in particular can be damaging to the Polycarbonates surface & UV protective layer so to treat it is important.
Cleaning and treatment of these problems is simple and not a major chore while maintaining that new roof look as well as treating the spores thus minimizing any re-growth.
