We use our render cleaning expertise to enhance our roof cleaning services. Our patented modular pole system enables us to steam clean with high temperature and low pressure producing the best results every time.
Our heritage in providing a full spectrum of access solutions means that we rarely have to erect scaffolding to carry out a commercial roof clean. With a combination of MEWP platforms and our modular patented pole system, we can gain access to your roof, saving you additional scaffolding costs.
Our approach derives from a similar method used to clean render. We use a specially developed biocide which is mixed bespoke for each property depending on the roof type.

Regular roof cleaning helps to maintain one of the most important parts of a building’s structure. Removing algae, fungus, moss, mould and residue from the surface of a roof helps to keep its materials in good condition. Cleaning also provides professionals with an opportunity to assess the condition of the roof. This can be an excellent way to spot minor maintenance issues before they turn into serious problems.
Spectrum has years of experience cleaning all external areas of domestic and commercial buildings, including the roofs. This expertise allows our operatives to find the most appropriate cleaning solution for the job, and carry out the work as quickly and efficiently as possible.
Why roofs need regular cleaning
As roofs are fully exposed to the elements, they’re prone to algae growth as well as moss and mould. This organic matter can take hold quickly on many materials used for roofing, causing discolouration and an unattractive finish.
Algae is a common problem on properties across the UK. Algae spores are carried through the air and deposited on external surfaces. In damp, temperate conditions, algae can grow quickly, causing the walls or roof of a property to turn green, red or black as it takes hold.
If it is not thoroughly removed, algae will return again and again, becoming a recurring issue for the property owner. Spectrum uses a combination of powerful cleaning methods and biocidal wash to kill and remove algae from all types of roofing.
Moss is another common problem on both commercial and residential properties. If left untreated, moss can grow quickly to cover large areas of roofing. When dislodged, it can easily find its way into guttering, causing blockages and other potentially serious maintenance issues.
Our moss removal service will thoroughly clean all moss from the surface of a roof. Our operatives will also use specially formulated biocide treatment to help prevent moss from re-growing for as long as possible.
Mould can also be found growing on many roofs across the UK. Like other organic substances, it needs to be removed quickly and thoroughly to prevent discolouration and staining to the roofing materials.
Properties located in built-up areas and close to busy transport links may experience a build-up of atmospheric pollutants on their roofs. These particles are produced by cars, lorries, planes, factories and other polluters, and are deposited on all types of external surfaces. Over time, they can cause roofs and façades to appear dirty and dull.
Spectrum will identify the most appropriate cleaning method to remove this dirt and grime. Our team will then use their specialist cleaning and access skills to carry out the work and leave the roof looking like new.
Great guys, and the job is well done. Communication is fantastic throughout.

Huge thank you to Andreia for her assistance and endless patience. The standard of communication was excellent every step of the way.
Metal roofing has been used on commercial properties for years. In fact, it is one of the oldest commercial roofing systems on the market. Most metal roofing systems use corrugated, galvanized steel, although other materials, like aluminium or tin, can also be used.
Our advanced cleaning methods allow our teams to completely renovate metal roofs of all kinds. Once work is complete and all organic matter and staining removed, metal roofs will be restored to their original aesthetic condition.
Roof Tile Cleaning
Roof tiles are used to top both commercial and residential buildings. Over time, tiles can be discoloured by the growth of algae, mould and moss, as well as by pollutants in the atmosphere. When cleaning tiled roofs, Spectrum uses low-pressure, high-temperature steam cleaning equipment and a powerful biocidal softwash. This combination of cleaning methods ensures that roof tiles are left looking as good as new.
Shingled Roof Cleaning
Shingle is mostly commonly used for homes and residential roofing, although it can also be used for steep-slope commercial roofing applications. Like tiles, shingle is prone to the growth of algae, moss and mould. Over time, this growth can begin to look unsightly and cause the roof to look older and in worse condition than it really is. Spectrum can use a combination of cleaning methods to remove organic growth and other staining and restore shingle roofs to their original aesthetic condition.
Why use Spectrum for your roof cleaning project?
