Roof Cleaning

Old-fashioned high pressure cleaning can seriously damage your roof. Softwashing gets a better, longer-lasting clean without the risk of pressure.

Roof cleaning is one of the most in demand services offered by Softwashing UK. Mosses, algae, lichens, and other atmospheric growths can cause structural damage to a roof, whether or not the greenish hues are seen by some as ‘quaint’. A common bacteria, gloecapsa magma, also causes unsightly black staining on a roof. Once a roof becomes covered with moss it is well into its projected life cycle, at which point maintenance and cleaning becomes more vital than ever. The old fashioned solution is to resort to high pressure cleaning to blast moss from the roof surface. However, high pressure cleaning of aging roofs is an aggressive solution which can cause substantial damage, so it is not recommended by roofing material manufacturers or roofers associations.


Softwashing is a gentle solution to roof cleaning and restoration. We use a pH neutral blend designed to treat the specific roof infection and kill gloecapsa magma, and unlike high pressure blasting, our products do not damage the roof materials. We filter and cleanse the roof using our softwashing low pressure tank system, and use light brushing to ensure maximum sanitisation. Softwashing uses the power of chemistry to eliminate the infectant at both surface and root. The products activate in minutes and then last for months.


Our process gets fast results that continue over time :

  • We will fully analyse your roof, perform risk assessment, and identify the exact infectant or infectants. We also identify and damaged areas that will need repairing before we clean.
  • We perform preparatory cleaning to remove surface mosses and lichens before applying the softwash. We’ll remove 90% of the visible growth.
  • We take all necessary precautions and measures to protect the garden and surrounds from the softwash, so as to avoid unnecessary exposure.
  • We use minimum pressures to thoroughly cleanse the roof using the correctly blended softwash detergents. These kill and eliminate spores and bacteria, like gloecapsa magma.
  • We will clean and shine your guttering and fascias.
  • We rinse completely and let the now clean and secure roof to dry in the air.

While high pressure blasting can subject a roof to damage without removing the root cause of infection, our low pressure, professional softwashing roof clean solution leaves roofs clear and secure for months to come.
