Tile Roof Cleaners Tampa Florida

Here is a filthy barrel tile roof we washed in Tampa. The owners of this home wanted to put the house on the market, and get it sold. He got a promotion,
and it required a move down to South Florida. He jokingly told us that he was a litigation attorney, and if we broke any roof tiles, he would sue us!

We told him to relax, and let him know loud and clear that this was not our first Rodeo. He said he was just joking, and that he had “done his homework” on us. He initially found out about our roof cleaning company from his Realtor at Florida Executive Realty, but he did further research, before he hired us.
It was a pleasure to clean his barrel tile roof, and to talk about Football with him. Like us, he is a Tampa Bay Buccaneer Fan, and we talked about our hopes for this coming season.

His barrel tile roof was filthy, but now it looks new! If you are in need of our service, or just want to get an idea of what it will cost to get your shingle or tile roof cleaned, contact us at 813-655-8777

Screen Room Cleaning Tampa Florida

Yes, we specialize in cleaning shingle and tile roofs, here in the greater Tampa area, but we clean other parts of your home as well. Here are some before and after pictures of a screen room we cleaned. This home was for sale, and had previously been rented. The renters were given a notice to move, so the house could be placed on the market. Their response was to literally thrash this house, as you can see by this before we cleaned it picture.

The Screen Room was absolutely filthy, but we got it cleaned. We forgot to take pictures of the screens, but they were pretty solid green, and had to be sprayed with our soft wash chemicals, inside and out. We always softwash dirty surfaces, especially pool screens because high pressure can actually stretch them all out. Clean screen that flap in the wind is not what our customers want. Here is the after we cleaned it photo, quite a difference, huh ?

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.

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.

Roof Stain Removal Tampa

 
 
 
 

If you have an older house, then you can assume you have some old tile or shingle roofing as well. And aside from cleaning the gutters and downspouts, there’s a good chance your tile or shingle roofing hasn’t received much maintenance in all those years. So if you start to see some dark staining, tarnishing, or discoloration, it may be time to look into some professional roof stain removal. Most often what appears as staining is actually mildew and fungus spores embedded into the tile or shingles from nearby plants, trees, and shrubbery. Any tile or shingle roofing is vulnerable to damage from the outdoor elements, but if gone untreated these imperfections could lead to more serious problems, such as deterioration, rot, and leaks.

Roof Shingle Cleaning Tampa FL

If you see that there are black streaks on your Tampa roof then it is a sure sign of algae formation on the roof shingles. It only means that the asphalt shingles have been invaded by roof algae and you need to treat it properly, otherwise your tampa asphalt shingle roof will appear very dirty and stained. It will mar the entire look of your house.
The fiberglass roofing shingles have sufficient moisture and environment which is conductive to the breeding of roof algae. Thus they breed really fast in the roof shingles.
You need to clean the asphalt roof shingles with roof cleaning chemicals which are specially formulated for it. Many Tampa house owners install copper shingles. They like the rich stately look of the copper shingles. The copper shingles do look great and marvelous when they are newly installed but they need maintenance. With the passage of time the natural elements play their role and the shingles appear dull and blackish or what we may also call “ugly”. It is very time consuming and tedious to clean and polish the copper shingles. You are not a roof cleaning professional and this job is not meant for you. You must always call a roof cleaning professional to clean the copper shingles. If you have spent a fortune getting copper shingles installed do spend a small amount in maintaining them too otherwise the fortune that you spent getting them installed will be a total waste!
