Pressure cleaning a flat cement, ceramic, or barrel tile roof, will often break or damage your tiles. Pressure washing a tile roof requires walking all over it. If all that walking around doesn’t bust up your tiles, the high pressure certainly can. Just try and get an inexpensive Florida Roofing Contractor to replace roof tile, and/or do leak repair to the underlying roofing membrane ! Try this test, stand on a ladder with a pressure washing wand in hand and pull the trigger. The high pressure can knock you right off the ladder! Imagine what that harmful pressure washing is doing to your tiles, and/or your roof membrane ? The surface cleaning devices used by some Tampa FL Pressure Washing company’s aren’t any better. They were designed for pressure cleaning parking lots and driveways. They are just a pressure washing contraption with their own set of problems. They are designed to “ride on air” on a flat surface. A barrel tile roof is not a flat surface, and as the surface cleaner passes over the roof tiles, it can easily smack into the edges of them like a sledgehammer, causing tile breakage. These surface cleaners also have angled high pressure cleaning nozzles, attacking your tile roof. The angled high pressure washing nozzles spray a stream of high pressure water right against the edges of your roof tiles. This causes the roof tile to buckle and move as it is forced up by the high pressure stream of water. Not only can this cause the tile to come loose, this can crack them from the bottom. These sharp, newly broken pieces of tile can be driven right into your tile roof membrane by the high pressure washing. We have seen tile roof membranes ripped apart, and bad roof leaks caused by this crude method of cleaning. These pressure washing contraptions are well known for causing roof leaks and broken tiles.

The container had not been properly rinsed, and the resulting chemical reaction caused the explosion, officials said.
