Do You Have a Green Conservatory Roof?


Picture this. A mild, sunny May day in your conservatory where you get the best view of the beautiful flowers in your garden and the green sky. Wait, what?



No, that's not the 'green roof' or 'living roof' made of vegetation but algae that has formed, built up, and attached onto the roof of your conservatory after the rains of Autumn, Winter, and even some days of Spring.


Algae form wherever there's enough water and sunlight for it to grow. And for this microorganism, room light and moisture are enough for it to multiply and…multiply. Unlike conservatories with vaulted or high ceilings, most conservatories don't have a steep roof so moisture builds up on the panes, creating an optimal environment for the growth of algae. Tall trees beside your home can also cast a shade on your conservatory, making it difficult for the sun to dry up moisture after a rain.


Cleaning your conservatory roof is already hard as it is without algae but if you want to see through your conservatory roof again, you'd have to be ready to climb up the ladder and stay there for some time.



One of the most traditional ways of cleaning out algae is with some good brushing. Attaching a brush on a pole can help you get to the algae on hard-to-reach places. Algae can also be cleaned with a mixture of water and bleach, and some help with a squeegee. If that doesn't work, go with a pressure washer but make sure that you set it low and that you're ready for some mess.


Once you get your conservatory roof back to tip-top shape, keep it algae-proof by pruning tall trees near or around your conservatory and by cleaning it frequently.


Cleaning your conservatory in and out is the best way to make sure it doesn't retire prematurely. If you want to find the best conservatory for your home, visit our website and get free quotes today.
