Tampa Palms Tile Roof Cleaning

This has been a rainy summer here in the Tampa Florida area so far, and we need the rain. Despite the summer rains here, we still have managed to get some tile roofs cleaned. This lovely home is located in Tampa Palms, a gated and deed restricted community, in the 33647 Zip Code.  We are Tampa Bay Buc Fans here, and post on several local Blogs and forums dedicated to our team.

That’s how this customer found our tile roof cleaning company.  It was fun talking football with him, and  a pleasure to clean his beautiful flat tile roof. As you can see, he asked us to leave a yard sign there, and sure enough, we have 2 additional neighbors of his to clean for, as a result of this job.

As you can see by the before and after pictures, this tile roof was pretty filthy, and that is a Big No No in Tampa Palms! Not only do they have a vigilant homeowners association, but neighbors are known to turn in other neighbors who fail to keep up the appearance of their property.

This is just my personal opinion, but I think it is pretty dirty to turn in one of your neighbors to the homeowners association.

However, it is true that the black stuff we see on roofs here in Tampa is an Algae, and it spreads itself by airborne spores, and critters going from dirty roofs to clean roofs. So, a dirty roof on your street can compromise the attempts of your neighbors who are trying to keep their roofs clean.

We clean tile roofs the correct way, with a chemical soft wash, and never use any pressure. If you are unfortunate enough to live next to a tile roof that has been pressure washed, lookout! The pressure washing spreads the still living spores of this algae all over the place!

If you would like to have your tile roof cleaned the right way, and you live in the greater Tampa Florida area, give us a call at 813-655-8777 for a free estimate.

Pressure Washing And Roof Cleaning Questions

Frequently Asked Questions About
Pressure Washing and Roof Cleaning in the Tampa Florida area

Screen Room Cleaning Tampa, FLScreen Room Cleaning Tampa, FL

Why should I have the exterior of my residence or business cleaned?
Not only is it important to maintain a clean property for the aesthetic value and much-desired curb appeal, but also to provide lasting protection against building material degradation. When mold, mildew, algae and other environmental pollutants found here in the Tampa Florida area are allowed to remain on the exterior surfaces of a property, they can contribute to premature paint failure, and can also cause permanent staining on concrete, gutters, and pool decks.

How long can I expect my property to stay clean?
Each and every property here in the Tampa Florida area is its own unique situation, but on average, most surfaces will stay clean for about one to 2 years. Some roof surfaces like shingles can stay clean for up to three years or longer, and less for barrel and flat tile roofs. There are many determining factors and environmental variables. Trees for instance, will create shaded and damp areas, creating an ideal environment for algae and mildew to develop and thrive in. Unusually dry or damp weather conditions can also have a direct effect on the length of time that a surface will stay clean. During periods of drought, all surfaces will stay clean longer, due to the reduction in moisture and humidity.

What causes those Black Stains on my roof?
The black streaks and stains seen on many roofs here in Tampa are caused by an algae, technically known as gloeocapsa magma. Once present in an area, the algae can quickly spread by airborne spores being carried from rooftop to rooftop by the wind, birds and other small critters. All roof types, including asphalt and fiberglass shingle, cement, ceramic and clay tile as well as wood shake or metal are susceptible to algae infestation. Our heat and humidity greatly accelerate the formation and growth of these black roof stains.

Can a roof be cleaned with a pressure washer?
Honestly, yes, roofs can be pressure washed. Is it a good idea? Absolutely not! Highly pressurized water can temporarily remove the visible stains, but the toll it takes on the shingle and tile roofing material can be extremely costly. Not only does it not destroy all the algae spores, but it can remove granules from shingled roofs and cause color-fading on tile roofs. Since pressure washing spreads the still living algae spores all over, it is not unusual to have to have your home and driveway cleaned, after the roof  has been pressure washed!

The shingle roof in the picture below is located in Tampa Palms.  These folks got a roof cleaning letter from their homeowners association. They called us for an estimate, but decided to have their shingle roof pressure washed by some other company, because it was a little cheaper. Their roof is ruined, as you can see, this damage is permanent!

Roof After Pressure Washing

Replacing a roof here in Tampa is expensive, not to mention the stress and frustration of having to do so because of a prematurely failing roofing system, that’s been damaged by too much pressure.

Water leaks can also be a major concern. Often these leaks go undetected for weeks or months, causing even more damage to the wooden trusses and rafters in the attic areas.The above-mentioned questions are but a few of the many routinely asked.

A Clean Shingle Roof Lasts Longer !

Will cleaning my shingle roof save me money?
Yes, the algae can cause premature roof granule loss, and shorten roof shingle life. 


As your roof is turned black by the algae , it becomes less reflective, and it retains heat. It is quite hot here in the Tampa Florida area, and now your air conditioner works harder to overcome the increased heat load, costing money in electric bills and increased load on your air conditioning equipment.

Unlike high pressure washing, our no pressure roof cleaning system actually removes and kills, algae, mold, mildew, fungus that causes your roof discoloration.

We clean asphalt shingle and tile roofs in the greater Tampa, Florida area. You might pay more, but you will not get better non-pressure shingle roof cleaning.

 

Shingle Roof Cleaning Tampa Palms 33647

If you are searching for roof cleaning in Tampa, you have probably figured out that we are the company that cleans the million dollar homes. All you have to do is scroll down the page, and see for yourself. But, cleaning million dollar homes with tile roofs is not all we do.

Here is a normal size shingle roof in the Tampa Palms subdivision in zip code 33647. We cleaned this roof on 1-22-2015. This was the second roof cleaning for this customer of ours, who received a clean your roof or else letter, from the Tampa Palms Homeowners Association. They had until 1-30-2015 to have their shingle roof cleaned, and we were able to get them cleaned by the deadline.

This shingle roof was chemically cleaned by us w/o using any pressure washing, nearly 6 years ago. But Tampa Palms is a deed restricted community, and when a roof gets dirty, the Homeowners Association will send out a letter, asking you to clean it.

The black discoloration we see on roofs here in Tampa is not dirt. It is a living plant, that spreads itself by invisible airborne spores. If your roof is dirty, it can and will help make your neighbors roofs dirty as well.  Plus, the plant on your roof will spread to your driveway and pool deck, when it rains.

If you have received a letter from the Tampa Palms HOA, or just want to be a good neighbor, and have your roof cleaned before you get that dreaded roof cleaning letter, call us at 813-655-8777 to get your roof cleaning cost.
