Roof Cleaning Warrington

Roof cleaning can really improve the look of your home or building, whether it be concrete tiles, slate or clay tiles. Kleenaway have the best solution for your cleaning needs. Roof cleaning can be carried out in a number of ways, the most common of which is using high powered water. Pressure washing to blast off the surface dirt to uncover nice clean tiles. Although you do achieve instant results, if not done correctly by a professional, damage to the structure, tiles, felt and loft space underneath can occur. This is because most types of roof are not designed to take the force and volume of water a pressure washer outputs.

Moss Removal With Soft Washing

There are multiple ways we are able to clean a roof. Typically, roofs can be pressure washed, though if we need to be more gentle and kind to the surface then we can soft wash it. A scaffolding tower is erected to the height of the roof line and from there, cat ladders are used to walk up and down the roof safely. A range of different fall restraint equipment is used to secure any operative to the roof, reducing the risk of injury.

Once all safety equipment is in place, we carefully scrape any moss or dirt by hand to cause minimal damage and disruption. At this point we report any damage or problems to the home owner and a qualified roofer is recommended to rectify and problems.


After the roof is has been fully scraped, we treat the roof with an environmentally friendly solution that kills all algae and lichen growths for years to come. A clean roof can really improve the look of a building for minimal cost.

About this Process

Even though we are a relatively small cleaning company, we are extremely proficient in many aspects of exterior cleaning. Roof cleaning is just one of our core specialised services.

For this reason, other larger cleaning companies have noticed our work and we are now their approved cleaning contractor for any roof cleaning jobs they receive. This means that we travel throughout the UK carrying out roof cleaning on behalf of many cleaning companies.

Our deployment on behalf of other companies is down to how proficient we are at roof cleaning, as we can utilise many different methods to clean your roof safely, regardless of the requirements.

We also have access to a drone to check the roof before setting up safety equipment to start climbing.

Roof Cleaning Methods

Ladder Access

A common method of access to asses the roof is a simple ladder, this gains us access to the gutter line to carry out a secondary inspection the roof so we can plan what is the best way to carry out the cleaning in a safe manner.


Scaffold Towers & Cat Ladders

If we are looking for  more permanent structure to have in place around the gutter line then we also have access to scaffold towers, this is so we can carry out any tasks as safely as possible. Once we have the access to the gutter line in place then we look at safely gaining access to the roof, this is normally carried out with the use of cat ladders, sometimes multiple cat ladders can be used on the same job to speed up the cleaning process.


Rope Access

Along side the access methods already mentioned, we use rope access equipment also to gain access to areas of the roof that other roof cleaning companies simply wouldn’t be able to reach. As well as it helping us gain access it is also there as another layer of safety for ourselves. We use multiple ropes with body harnesses as fall arrest in case of a slip or fall from the roof, these ropes are tied off to different points around at the ground level such as large trees and purpose made counter weight systems.



If we deem the roof unfit for any of our operators to walk on the then a we can employ another tactic of cleaning the roof from a scaffold tower positioned at the side of the property. With this we use extendable high pressure poles that can reach distances of around 10 meters. This gives us a large cleaning circle which means in 95% of cases that we never need to set foot on the roof which in turn maintains the structural integrity of it.




If none of these options are suitable for your roof then we can also use MEWPS (mobile elevated work platforms) such as scissor lifts or cherry pickers, which all of our employees are fully trained and qualified to do. This means that we can gain access to the roof from a distance of over 20 meters without having access from the side of the building. We can also hire narrow tacked machines which can fit through a normal width gate, these are ideal for areas are a real pain for access. They have a narrow body with legs that fold down, so can be suitable for soft ground such as grass that a normal machine would easily sink into.

We have never been beaten by a roof cleaning job yet!
