Gleam Team Cleaning Services are based in Maidstone and operate throughout Kent, London and the south east providing professional exterior house cleaning, building cleaning, facade cleaning, stucco and render cleaning, UPVC and wooden cladding and wall cleaning services.

The method we use depends upon the surface to be cleaned and we specialise in low pressure softwashing for more delicate surfaces.

Exterior House Cleaning & Building Cleaning in Kent

Our house washing service is available across the region including in Maidstone, Medway Towns, West Kent, Canterbury, Folkestone, Dartford and London.

When cleaning external areas of houses and other buildings we use gentle and effective methods that will clean without the risk of damaging your property.

When pressure washing, it is the power of the water that does the cleaning, but with low pressure soft washing it is the strength and effectiveness of the specialist chemical cleaning products that produces results.

Wall Cleaning Services

Our professional wall cleaning can restore and revive stone, painted, rendered and brick walls removing:

  • algae
  • mildew
  • dirt
  • grafitti

We can also seal walls with a water resistant sealant to prevent water and moisture penetration.

This can be of particular benefit in preventing damp or brick walls that are susceptible to efflorescence staining.

Efflorescence is the white staining often seen in bricks and paving. It is caused by water penetration that reacts with naturally occurring salts found in mortar that then rise to the surface and become visible.

Algae removal from walls, render and stone

Black, red and green algae are prevalent in the UK but can safely and effectively be removed from all types of wall and rendered surfaces. Red algae is often a result of the betacarotene in green algae manifesting itself and can be cleaned just as easily.

However, dark red stains can be evidence of an additional fungi underneath and a biocide is necessary to penetrate the surface and kill the fungi that has worked into a porous surface such as render.

The approved biocide we use kills and removes all biological growths and spores including black, red and green algae, mildew, mould, moss, lichens as well as cleaning away dirt, mud, pollutants and other black staining. It also prevents regrowt
