Removing Moss From Roof Tiles
- Moss,algae and lichens are unsightly and detrimental to the aesthetic kerb appeal of your home and its overall appearance. Furthermore,loose moss falling from the roof is a major cause of guttering and downpipe blockages which can result in additional maintenance problems.
- The cleanest,most effective,safest and best way to remove moss from roofs is by manual scraping. We do not jet wash roofs as this is not only very likely to damage or dislodge roof tiles,it is also extremely messy spraying dirt and moss all over your driveway and garden as well as your neighbours property and adjoining roofs. However,for a more comprehensive cleaning of ingrained dirt and algae we do offer competitively priced soft washing in Kent and south London (see below).
- After first covering all downpipes to prevent blockages we will either access the roof using roof ladders or use telescopic equipment specially adapted for manual roof tile cleaning. If the roof is not too steep and the tiles are suitably robust we will use roof ladders, but if steepness or delicate,fragile tiles are an issue we will opt for telescopic equipment which is the preferred choice.
- All ground floor areas will be protected by tarpaulin throughout the cleaning process.
Roof Moss Prevention
On completion of the work all gutters will be completely cleared and the roof sprayed with a high strength moss inhibiting biocide for long lasting protection against re-growth.

SOFT WASHING ROOF CLEANING in KENT and LONDON
Roof soft washing is the best and most effective method of safely giving roofs a thorough,deep cleaning. It avoids the mess and risk of damage that comes with jet washing, but gently and powerfully removes ingrained dirt,algae,mould,lichens,other organic matter and staining caused by pollution.
Significant amounts of roof moss must first be removed manually as already described on this page
What Does Soft Washing Involve?
- Two stage process with application of a specialist sodium hypochlorite based cleaning product – Blackwash– approved by the UK Health and Safety Executive.
Followed by a long lasting biocidal wash providing ongoing fungicidal protection
- When used properly at the correct dilution rates these chemicals are safe for people,pets and the environment.
- STAGE 1: chemical product mixed with water is pumped through a telescopic water fed pole and gently brushed into roof surface.
- Product left for 30 to 60 minutes to soak in and take effect,kill organic materials and remove contaminants.
- Roof is then thoroughly rinsed. Heavily stained roofs may require a 2nd application followed by another rinsing.
- STAGE 2: different chemical biocide is applied and brushed in
- It is not rinsed and has an ongoing cleaning effect meaning the roof will become even cleaner over the next month or two.
- It will kill any new spores landing on the roof and prevent re-growth of organic material for up to 3 years.
The uniquely powerful formulas of the specialist biocide products make soft washing the ideal way to safely clean and restore your roof to its original colour. Furthermore,it continues working and protecting the roof against re-growth for several years and retaining the new,attractive look of your home.
Gleam Team only used specialist chemicals designed and government approved for exterior building cleaning.
Beware of contractors using their own mixtures of industrial strength sodium hypochlorite approved only for use for purposes such as swimming pool cleaning and farm sanitisation . Not only is it illegal to use them for any reason other than their approved purpose,but they can also cause serious damage to your property,pets and plant life.
