What is Soft Wash Roof Cleaning?

Softwashing is the application of powerful, safe chemical cleaning products at low pressure. The chemicals do the cleaning and are strong enough to clean even more effectively than jet washing. Low pressure is far more suitable for delicate surfaces like roofs as tiles are easily damaged or dislodged if blasted with high pressure jet washers.

After applying the chemicals and allowing them to soak in they are rinsed and the process repeated. The results are stunning and soft washing is by far the safest and most effective way of cleaning roofs.

We do not jet wash roofs because of the likelihood of damaging roofs, water entering the attic and the incredible amount of mess that is generated flying all over your garden, vehicles, your neighbours property and the street in front of your house.

After cleaning the roof we apply a professional grade biocide that not only has an ongoing cleansing effect lasting several moths but also kills and controls all biological spores landing on the roof preventing regrowth of moss, lichens and algae for 12 months.

All the chemicals and biocide we use are biodegradable and safe for people, pets and the environment. They are approved for professional exterior cleaning use by the UK Health & Safety Executive.

The cleaning power of a roof soft wash

Low pressure soft washing removes:

  • moss
  • algae
  • lichens
  • dirt
  • mud

What are lichens?

These are typically off-white or black in colour and are extremely difficult to remove from roof tiles, They are a combination of algae and fungi living in a symbiotic relationship to that benefits them both.

They embed themselves into the tile surface and cannot be removed from the basic moss removal process and require specialist chemicals to kill and dislodge them.

Moss Removal From Roofs

We start by surrounding the house with tarpaulin to protect your property and collect moss that falls off the roof. We also cover downpipes to prevent blockages.

Roof moss is removed by manual scraping using specialist tools that are attached to long reach extendable poles up to 6 metres or more in length. We usually work from ladders at the gutter line although may also access the roof using roof ladders if appropriate and safe to do so without damaging tiles.
