Your dirty rooftop is no match for this German-made cleaning machine

Watching the Aqua Jet Cleaning System (AJCS) at work is curiously satisfying.

The German innovation, what its creators call a lawn mower for the roof, is a high performance rooftop cleaner unlike any other. It washes and cleans concrete, clay, asbestos and tin or sheet metal roofs. The machine runs on powerful diesel engines which provide the high water pressure necessary for the job.

Roofs need to be cleaned on a regular basis for various reasons. It helps to keep roof tiles in tip-top condition and therefore last longer. A clean roof keeps away moss which can spread to the entire roof surface if not treated. And of course, a dirty roof is not only ugly but unhygienic.

The AJCS’ pressure pumps deliver 30 litres, or 7.9 gallons, of water at high pressure (7250 PSI (500 Bar) to remove dirt, grime, moss, fungi, and everything else from the surface. With that kind of pressure power, little would stand in its way!

Developed by German roofing contracting company, Rudiger Schulz GmbH, the machine works like a lawn mower. You get uniform results across the roof surface. A special nozzle combination as well as an adjusted jet angle ensure that even critical low edge areas are spotlessly clean.

Homeowners, of course, are not expected to purchase the machine, which is designed for professionals in the industry. But they will benefit because it is quick – it can clean 270sqm in just 6 hours – hopefully cheaper, and the machine can also be used to provide after-care anti-moss treatment.
