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.

Black staining before and after soft wash cleaning

How we clean buildings & house exteriors

We use only approved products and biocides specifically designed for professional use in outdoor cleaning that have dramatic and instant results on even the toughest ingrained black staining. We apply the product at low pressure to protect the surface and substrate and prevent water penetration.

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 regrowth and has an ongoing self cleansing effect.

It is safe to use on:

  • shop and office signage
  • rendered walls – coloured and plain
  • brick walls
  • painted walls
  • concrete
  • UPVC guttering,cladding,fascias and soffits
  • industrial steel cladding , piping and tanks
  • timber cladding,decking and fencing
  • painted surfaces
  • Indian Sandstone,limestone and other natural stone
  • paths,pavements,driveways and patios

What Is Soft Washing?

  • It is a revolutionary new way of cleaning developed in the United States and safe for cleaning brick walls,masonry cleaning,concrete cleaning and all other building cleaning.
  • It was specifically designed as a safe alternative to high pressure power washing that is likely to damage certain external surfaces such as brick and rendered walls and roofs.
  • Soft washing is the low pressure application of specialist cleaning chemicals specifically designed for cleaning render,bricks,walls,exterior house cleaning and all outdoor areas and building surfaces. All products used are approved by the UK Government Health and Safety Executive.
  • Contains safe biocidal wash that cleans and sanitizes surfaces killing spores of algae,fungi,moss and other bacteria
  • Continues killing spores providing long term protection against re-colonisation
  • Eliminates the risk of damage associated with high powered pressure washing
  • Safe for people,pets and the environment


Soft Washing , Building Cleaning and Biocidal Wash Products

There are 2 types of chemical products,both of which are approved by the UK Health and Safety Executive.

One is a sodium hypochlorite based cleaning product providing instant results. The other is a cleaning and residual biocidal wash providing long term cleaning benefits that continue long after application, and ongoing protection against the re-growth of algae,lichen,fungi and moss.

They are biodegradable so safe for the environment,and once dry harmless to children and pets.

BEWARE of contractors using their own mix of industrial strength sodium hypochlorite which is made for things like cleaning swimming pools and farm buildings and not for exterior cleaning purposes. It is an extremely corrosive chemical when used incorrectly and will damage hard surfaces.

Biocide Wash

The residual power of the specialist biocidal wash means some is retained on the surface providing exceptional long term protection of up to one year!

During this time it carries on killing spores that may land on the surface and stopping the return of algae,lichen and moss. No other product can match this performance.

BENZ Biocidal wash is therefore perfect for removing mould from walls and mildew,cleaning brick,cleaning painted walls,cleaning outside of house,roofs,cladding cleaning and much more.
