Roof Cleaning Services

The moderate climate in the UK is a perfect breeding ground for moss, algae and lichens to grow. The combination of warmth from the house below and rain and moisture in the air, means that these organisms can breed and multiply, especially on west facing roofs.

These organisms can cause short and long-term damage to your roof, eating away at tiles and mortar and eventually requiring you to replace it completely.


The solution

Cleaning4u carry out roof cleaning and protection to houses in Sussex, Kent and throughout the south east. Removing moss and algae will significantly increase the lifespan of your roof. As a result, you’ll experience less long term damage to your property, and better heat retention.

Our highly skilled team of roof cleaners will perform a full clean of your home using a technique called soft washing. Unlike pressure washing, soft washing is non-abrasive meaning that there is no damage to the roof from high pressure water jets. Our non-invasive technique ensures minimal disturbance to you if you are at home, and will also ensure that neighbouring properties are not disturbed either.

We use a powerful professional strength biocide treatment that will kill algae, moss and lichens at the source, preventing regrowth.

All of our roof cleaning and moss removal work is carried out by carefully trained professionals and is fully guaranteed.


Thriving in moist environments, moss is typically found on all the roofs where moisture is able to penetrate the tile more easily. Moss holds moisture in, weakening the surface.


Algae typically sits on top of the roof. It can penetrate the tile pore structure, and aesthetically can be very unsightly especially in warmer summer months.


There are over 1700 species of lichens in the UK. These cling onto the roof surface increasing moisture retention, degrading the strength of the roof surface. Severe cases can look very unsightly.
