Roof tiles after soft wash



We are an experienced, professional roof cleaning company operating in Tonbridge, Tunbridge Wells, Sevenoaks and surrounding areas of Kent.

Our moss removal and soft wash roof cleaning service cleans, restores and rejuvenates roofs and roof tiles and brings back their original colour.

In addition to cleaning moss off roofs we can also remove all types of organic staining such as:

It has a particularly dramatic effect on red Kent clay tiles and red Marley roof tiles.

How we clean roofs in Tonbridge, Tunbridge Wells & Sevenoaks

Roof moss removal

The first stage of our roof cleaning in Tonbridge involves the removal of all moss from the roof.

We start by surrounding your house with protective tarpaulin which collects moss falling from the roof.

We also cover your downpipes to prevent them getting blocked by lose moss.

Depending on the style of your roof and ridges, its steepness and the type of tiles we may access the roof using roof ladders that hook over the ridge and allow close up manual scraping to remove the moss.

If ladders are inappropriate we use long reach extendable poles with specialist moss removal tools that attach to the pole. We then work from the gutter line to clear away all the moss and the length of poles makes all areas accessible.

This method is somewhat time consuming but we believe it is by far and away the safest and most effective method of moss removal and roof cleaning that protects your property from the damage of high pressure jet washing.


Is it OK to pressure wash roof tiles?

Gleam Team do NOT jet wash roofs as this is a recipe for disaster in our experienced opinion. Furthermore, the UK’s leading manufacturers including Marley Tiles specifically warn against it stating:

“The use of high powered jet washes is not recommended as it can damage the surface of the slate or tile, thus reducing its expected life considerably”.

They’re the experts after all, so if it’s good enough for them, it’s good enough for us


Blasting roof tiles at pressure will dislodge and damage fragile tiles and can result in water entering the roof space.

It is also extremely messy with moss and dirt landing all around your property, your garden, driveway, your neighbours house and garden, the street outside and surrounding areas. On a windy day the distance the dirt travels can be even further.

Roof moss killer, inhibitor & fungicide

After completing the moss removal we will apply a long lasting roof moss killer / biocide to protect against regrowth of all organic spores for approximately 12 months – 18 months.
