What is the best roof cleaning product?

Sodium Hypochlorite is the best roof cleaning product. However, a few other magic ingredients are needed for it to work properly and give long-lasting results.

Sodium Hypochlorite, when used for roof cleaning and mixed to exacting proportions with oxygen, water and Green Wash will safely kill 99% of all known germs. It is advised to use a BLEND 6 X module to ensure correct, safe mixing ratios.

This process of roof cleaning is known as Soft Washing.

Soft Washing Ingredients

Firstly, water – H2O – is used as the primary ingredient; a soft wash mix is usually made up of 95-98% water.

Secondly, Sodium Hypochlorite, commonly called bleach and widely available, sodium hypochlorite is one of the main ingredients used in a soft wash mix. Used between 2% and 5% strength is required to achieve maximum results. Bleach is made up of water and salt and biodegrades back into water and salt within 20 days of introduction to the environment.

Thirdly, Green Wash – used as a catalyst to make bleach, bleach faster. Also used to provide “cling” to the surface being treated. Green Wash has been manufactured to be mixed safely with bleach. It is water based, biodegradable and meets the Soft Wash Systems Good Stewards standard.

Finally, oxygen – O2 – is required, added to the Soft Wash mix after the tip of the lance. Quite easy to do yet often misunderstood by pressure washing companies, the way to achieve perfect O2 mix is to simply spray the surface to be cleaned from 6 feet away. The spray will absorb all the oxygen it requires and works by releasing oxygen molecules in a process called oxidation.

So, what is the best roof cleaning product? A Soft Wash mixture which has been blended by a Soft Wash machine, designed for the purpose of Safe Roof & Exterior Cleaning.

In conclusion, most reputable roof cleaning companies use Soft Wash equipment and chemicals. This ensures your roof will stay clean 4-6 times longer than pressure washing or other methods.

What our Clients Think


See all testimonials
  • We would confirm Purple Rhino undertook the cleaning of ten large internal courtyard areas at the above hospital. As may be expected with hospital work complications did arise particularly from The Trust who had concerns with regards to patients in individual wards all of which were adjacent to the working areas. Not withstanding these problems Purple Rhino worked quickly and diligently with all parties so as to mitigate the issues and were able to complete in a timely and expeditious manner. All parties, including The Trust, were most appreciative with the quality of the completed works. In view of these experiences with Purple Rhino, we would not hesitate to recommend them for any future works relating to cleaning facades.

  • From the first contact with Purple Rhino I was impressed with the service that we received from Darran, for his quick response to our request and professionalism to the end product from his team on site.

    I’m sure we will be working together on future projects.

  • From my initial contact with Purple Rhino to the finish, their work was very professionally carried out. Their team arrived on the arranged date and completed the work to a very high standard. Also, at very short notice, they managed to carry out a large cleaning schedule over a weekend in order for the school to look it’s best for a visit by RIBA judges. This was safely completed while various areas were in use. Definitely a five star service and I would recommend this company.
