Pressure Washing a flat cement tile, ceramic tile, or barrel tile roof, will often break or damage it. Pressure Washing a tile roof requires walking all over it. If all that walking around doesn’t bust up your roof tiles, the high pressure certainly can. Pressure Washing Tile Roofs does not kill the plant (Algae) that is growing up there, it merely scatters this still living plant all over the place! It is not unusual for a Tampa area Homeowner who had their Tile Roof Pressure Washed, to have to get their homes and screen rooms/pool decks cleaned shortly after this crude, and obsolete cleaning method! We’re RCIA Certified Non Pressure Tile Roof Cleaning experts, we’ll take care of you! Click the picture for more information, or simply call us at 813-655-8777.
Frequently Asked Roof Cleaning Questions
Q: What is the safest method for cleaning my tile or shingle roof in Tampa ?
A: A trusted source for safe roof cleaning are the technical bulletins put out by The Asphalt Roofing Manufacturers Association (They are an organization that represents the largest shingle manufacturers in the United States) and ELK/GAF (The largest shingle manufacturer in North America). Both of these technical bulletins provide the only chemicals that they consider safe to clean asphalt shingles without voiding the shingle warranties. Apple Roof Cleaning Tampa only uses cleaners approved by ARMA and the RCIA (Roof Cleaning Institute Of America)
Q: Will Apple Roof Cleaning Tampa use a pressure washer to clean my tile or shingle roof?
A: No. we use a No Pressure Roof Cleaning Method. The Roof Cleaning Chemical is applied using less pressure than that found out of a garden hose. Using a pressure washer will void the shingle warranty and cause premature failure of asphalt shingles.
Q: When should my tile or shingle roof cleaning service be completed?
A: A shingle roof cleaning in the Tampa Florida area is usually most effective any time of the year. The average temperature is usually above 50 degrees any time of year here. Tile roof cleaning is best performed when it is a sunny day, and the temperature is above 70 degrees. The cleaning chemicals work better when helped by the Sun and warm temperatures. Some companies will clean a tile roof when it is colder outside, or overcast, and use a stronger chemical solution to compensate. This can have strip the glaze from your roof tiles, and kill your plants! Beware!
Q: Why is temperature important to roof cleaning?
A: Once the average temperature is above 50 degrees, the algae will open up and come out of a dormant stage. When the algae is open and growing is the most effective time for roof cleaning chemical to do its job.
Q: When should I schedule my service with Apple Roof Cleaning of Tampa?
A: Most any time, because we have 2 full time roof cleaning trucks to serve your needs quickly.
Q: What sets Apple Roof Cleaning Tampa above the competition?

In the hands of a Certified roof cleaner, precautionary measures are taken before, during, and after the roof cleaning process to prevent any damage to landscaping. Apple Roof Cleaning Tampa has adopted all safety practices for both personnel and vegetation in it’s employee handbook.

100% Safe, No Pressure Shingle Roof Cleaning in Tampa
Aside from aesthetics, shingle roof cleaning is necessary here in Tampa, to assure that you get the proper life from your roof, keep your A/C expenses lower, and for health reasons.
The culprit causing your roof to discolor here in Tampa and look so bad is algae, and it WILL shorten the life of your shingle roof, it WILL make your roof darker and thus hotter from the sun’s rays. This will make your home hotter, as well as speed the deterioration of your shingles.
We use only ARMA (Asphalt Roofing Manufacturers Association) approved roof cleaning solutions, as well as specialized roof cleaning equipment designed to clean your shingle roof, while keeping it safe from damage. Click here to read ARMA’s suggestions and cautions against using pressure washing equipment on your roof.
We do not use any type of pressure washer on your roof. We do not use damaging shingle roof cleaning products that require pressurized water to complete the cleaning, such as sodium hydroxide.
We take every precaution necessary to protect your plants and the exterior of your home. Unlike most of our “competitors”, we employ the use of a dedicated ground person to keep the house and foliage well rinsed before, during, and after the shingle roof is treated with our Apple Sauce. This will assure that your plants will not die, your house will not be damaged, and no one will be injured during the cleaning process. Do you really want some inexperienced part time pressure washing contractor falling off your roof while you’re at work, and then blaming you for his lack of experience and safety?
We have seen it many times, an inexperienced part time pressure washer on a customer’s shingle roof in Tampa, blasting away at full pressure, using little or no cleaning chemicals or algaecides, and causing damage to a roof that likely won’t be noticed for years. Don’t be a victim of inexperience. With Apple Roof Cleaning Of Tampa, you can “Experience the Difference, Because the Difference is Experience!”
Ask about our annual maintenance program! Our cleaning system will keep your roof algae free for quite some time, but nothing will stop the algae from eventually beginning to grow again in your roof’s surface, long before it becomes visible to the eye. By that time, the algae is well rooted into the surface of your shingle, and has already been degrading the integrity of your shingles for months or years. After your initial cleaning, we can apply, at a significant discount, an annual re-treatment to kill the algae that has already begun to grow back. This will assure that your roof will last as long as possible.

There’s a Roof Fungus In Tampa!
Say Goodbye to Roof Fungus, Molds, and Black Stains in Tampa!
Apple Roof Cleaning Tampa safely cleans and protects
shingle and tile roofs for proud homeowners!
- Why Use Apple Roof Cleaning Tampa ?
- WHY YOUR ROOF SHINGLES AND TILES ARE TURNING BLACK– Remember the first time you looked up at your roof, and noticed those black stains appearing on your shingles or tiles ? Do you remember how you felt when you saw it slowly spreading across the roof ? Your home was fairly new and your roof barely a few years old. How could this be happening, and what was causing it? Well, you weren’t alone in your frustration. It appears that this is quite a common occurrence in Tampa Florida. Even on a roof with fungus resistant shingles, the fungus protection applied by the manufacturers of the shingles can begin to fail as soon as 2-3 years in Tampa, after installation. As the protection fails, staining can appear within six months. In Tampa Florida’s hot & humid climate, it seems that inevitably a fungus actually begins to grow on your roof shingles and tiles, leaving behind these unsightly black stains that continue to spread across your shingle or tile roof if left untreated. These fungi live abundantly in the soil here in Tampa. Like all fungi, they multiply by microscopic spores which float through the air and after landing on a hospitable surface, germinate. Fungi feed on organic matter such as wood, paper and asphalt, just to mention a few, and in the process, decompose and eventually destroy the material on which they grow.
- HOW THIS FUNGUS COULD BE COSTING YOU MONEY.– Besides making your home look old and unsightly, researchers looking into this problem have discovered that this fungus could actually be costing you quite a bit of money. If your roof has fungus growth, temperatures under your roof become higher, increasing your monthly air conditioning costs and possibly even shortening the lifespan of your air conditioning unit. Some of these studies have revealed reduction of under-roof temperatures in Tampa by anywhere from 10 – 20 degrees once the fungus has been eliminated. Some homeowners here in the Tampa area have seen utility savings of up to $20-$25 per month. In fact, there is a noticeable difference in your tampa electric bill if the change in you attic temperature reduces the temperature in your living space by just 3-4 degrees.
SHORTENED TILE AND SHINGLE ROOF LIFE AND INCREASED ALLERGIES.– Compounding the problem, the same studies seem to indicate that the lifespan of your roof is shortened by the increased granule loss from thermal expansions and contractions commonly experienced with this problem. This expansion and contraction can cause a weakening around the fastenings of the shingles on your roof. Also, unhealthy fungus spores and mold could conceivably be tracked into your home. For those Tampa Homeowners suffering from allergies, this breeding ground on your roof could really cause some suffering.SO, HOW DO YOU GET RID OF THIS FUNGUS? As with most of these types of problems in Tampa, everyone you speak with seems to have a different opinion. Some owners believe that cleaning the roof with a high pressure water hose is the best treatment. While it is our understanding that this might temporarily eliminate most of the fungus, enough of the fungus is left behind, actually embedded in the ceramic granules on the shingles, to quickly cause future problems. In addition, high pressure water treatments do seem to damage your shingles over time, causing granule loss and shortening the life of your shingles. Keep in mind, the granules on your shingles are the sources of not only the color of our roof, but also your heat-reflective protection. Granule loss should be avoided. Other owners we spoke with seem to swear by brushing chlorine. They simply apply chlorine to the roof and with a broom, scrub the roof and then simply rinse with an ordinary garden hose. Studies indicate, however, that the use of brushing on your roof can trigger unwanted side effects to your roof, causing shingle deterioration and brittleness, as well as causing damage to the shrubs and sod around your home.THE BEST WAY TO TREAT ROOF FUNGUS. So far, the best way to treat this fungus problem is by using the services of professional companies like Apple Roof Cleaning Tampa, equipped with the right products to eliminate the fungus, applied by trained technicians experienced with these products. Apple Roof Cleaning Tampa will send trained, experienced technicians to your home to apply special, environmentally safe formulas that will not only clean the fungus from your roof once and for all, but also apply a second clear coating that remains on your roof suspended in a bonding agent that prevents future fungus growth. They rinse the treatment with sprayers stronger that a garden hose, but considerably less intense than a high pressure water hose. After your roof has been treated and the fungus totally eliminated, Apple Roof Cleaning Tampa recommends a “lighter” treatment approximately every year. Our company offers an unconditional guarantee that this program, called Guardian Roof Maintenance will keep your roof fungus and stain free. The cost of the treatments depends on the size of your roof
- Of the people in Tampa we spoke with, most seem to be extremely satisfied with the results, the fungus has never returned and a number of Tampa owners have, in fact, been experiencing lower utility bills each month of a least $15-$25.That ugly Black Fungus on your roof is stealing your money!

No Pressure Soft Wash Roof Cleaning w/protective treatment coating:
On arrival we do a full walk of the roof and inspect the it for any damage, including excessive loss of granules, tree damage, cracked or missing shingles, cracked pipe jacks, etc. And before any soft wash chemicals are applied we completely water the ground, plants and home.
Then we apply an even coat of our soft wash roof cleaner solution. Wait 10-15 minutes to allow the roof cleaner to go to work and break up the algae rooted in the shingles surface. (This is the most important part of the soft wash roof stain removal.) If needed, we will apply a second and even a 3rd coat of our roof cleaner to guarantee your shingles are completely free of the algae so you know you have a clean roof.
After the roof cleaner has done its job, we completely rinse everything with a garden hose (no pressure) to remove the algae without doing any damage. Apple Roof Cleaning Of Tampa (813)655-8777 never ever uses high pressure, or stiff bristle brushes, as this can damage things further.
Once the roof is free of algae the protective coat goes to work, these exclusive to us roof treatment chemicals are already mixed in with the cleaner, and start to work immediately. This keeps your roof clean and beautiful, by helping prevent the stains from coming back for many years to come.
Below are a few examples of some soft wash roof cleanings we have done, here in the Tampa area.

Some Asphalt Shingle or Barrel Tile Roof Cleaning Questions and Answers
For more answers to all of your questions, call us from 9 to 9 pm at 813-655-8777
Q: So, what exactly is all the dark streaking and black staining I see on my roof ?
A: This unsightly shingle or tile roof discoloration is due in part to a pandemic like spread of the airborne spores and later adult cyanobacteria called Gloeocapsa Magma algae. This particularly hardy strain of roof algae cyanobacteria are particularly attracted to limestone which acts like a fertilizer, allowing this once dormant blue green algae to react like a living roof plaque. This is due in part to a reduction in petroleum additives in the asphalt and fiberglass roofing shingle manufacturing process and the increase of “OTHER” inert, crushed and powdered filler material, used to help control the ever spiraling fuel, energy and oil costs.
Due to rising oil prices as a cost saving measure, powdered, limestone and other filler products were added starting 25-30 years ago (about the same time as the OPEC oil embargo) and since that time, the addition of these petroleum “fillers” have been commonplace according to research we have located on the internet.
These inert “additives” have, in recent years, been acting like a “snack food” or corner “Quickie Mart” for many of these roof eating miniature plants, especially Gloeocapsa Magma.
This unknowing addition of what amounts to “Algae Fertilizer” by roofing material into the manufacturing process has since, in part, produced a ever increasing worldwide roof algae pandemeic
Especifically damaging once the algae root system begins to methodically work it way into the sun drenched roofs in the hot, humid densely populated areas, enhancing the degradation of roofing materials located in the southern regions of the U.S.
If you are a property owner and are reading this, chances are, this ALGAE is up on your roof, as well as on shingle or tile roofs all over your neighborhood.
This very fast moving Gloeocapsa Alage , move thru airborne spores, ROOF hopping, if you will, like the common cold, from roof, to shingle or tile roof, its shortening the longevity of countless roofing, while creating a neighborhood wide eyesore throughout many owns, and cities nationwide.
20 to 25 years ago many roofs typically lasted the full 20 to 30 year lifespan. Not anymore. With Roof life has been shortened in recent years due to increased roof algae, mold, mildew, moss etc.
Many roofs are being replaced today in Tampa due to a lack of proper cleaning and roof maintenance.
Premature shingle or tile roof replacement can be avoided with proper maintenence.
According to research, staining and discoloration account for over 60 percent of re-roofing occurring across the country, much of which is unessaary.
Just like washing and maintaining your car, spraying and clearing off your patio, porch or deck of annual debris, or soft washing the vinyl siding on your home, your roof should be cleaned, maintained and treated periodically to repel algae and other ” shingle or tile roof destroyers” .
Naturally, you would not go very long without brushing your teeth, showering or washing your clothes, and along that same line of common sense thinking, it just makes sense that in order for your roof to perform as it should, and to provide you safe shelter for all your belongings and personal possessions, it too should be cleansed and cleared of leaves, pine needles, debris and roof algae, etc
Apple Roof Cleaning Tampa 813-655 -8777 uses non pressure and ultra-low pressure pumps and rinsing equipment combined with specialized cleaning agents to eliminate algae and mildew stains and streaks, along with environmental pollutants and dirt from asphalt shingle and clay and concrete tile roofs—all without the risk of damage associated with using high-pressure methods.
Apple Roof Cleaning Tampa 813-655 -8777 offers a 1 year written unconditional guarantee providing residential and commercial property owners with the piece of mind of knowing that, once their roof is cleaned properly the first time, our maintenance residual treatment program insures an “always clean roof”.
“How your home looks from the curb says a lot about who lives there. As the old saying goes, you never get a second chance to make a first impression.
New Paint or Siding give you some visual curb appeal, and, a freshly mowed, landscaped yard deinitely helps yet both of these home improvement projects combined, pale in comparison to, a freshly cleaned, well maintained, new looking roof.
DID YOU KNOW ?
Since most roofs capture 30 to 60 percent of the visual appearance of most homes, NOTHING stands out quite the same way a new looking roof does.
In fact, now that I have mentioned it, look around your specific neighborhood and visually note how a dirty, filthy looking roof detracts from the appeal of even the most well manicured of homes.
Well, now that you are more aware of the algae, mold and mildew you are in a informed position to do something proactive about it.
Years ago nobody had an answer for what it was occurring up on the roofs, the staining and discoloring to most proprty owners and cleaning contractors. And back then we had no information, no real solution to the problem.
It’s important to understand that an algae, a bacteria, a plant is quietly feeding on the oils that preserve your roof from the suns damaging rays and setting up a permenent residence on your roof due to the limestone in your roof shingles. This “uninvited guest” or pest if you will, is silently ‘snacking” on your roof, also dislodging the ceramic granules that are helping to provide your roof with much needed important UV protection and color.
It like miniature warfare, but thankfully Apple Roof Cleaning Tampa 813-655 -8777 is winning the battle. We know much more than we did years ago and instead of harsh pressure washing there is now, a soft wash, safe, non pressure solution to properly cleaning and maintaining roof surfaces and we offer this to our customers.
Now that you know more, I am sure you will soon be calling us to schedule your reasonably priced roof cleaning very soon.

Not only will our safe, effective non pressure roof cleaning service transform the aesthetics of your home or business’s asphalt or fiberglass shingle roof, this enhancement will continue to allow your shingle or tile roof the ability to continue to look and perform its very best for its useful lifespan which is Apple Roof Cleaning of Tampa’s 813-655 -8777 top priority.
Don’t just take our word for it, look around and see, while your driving to and from work, while walking your dog, while outdoors traveling to and from your local friends and relatives and I am sure you will agree.
Truth be told, a nice looking residential or commercial property is only complete with a clean, well maintained shingle or tile roof.

Roof Cleaning Improves Property Value of Tampa Florida area Homes
As a home owner here in the Tampa area, you spend countless hours caring for your property. From repainting walls to replacing flooring, mowing the grass and updating the landscaping, pride in property appearance often goes hand in hand with pride in ownership, and includes caring for and updating the interior and exterior of your home.
Yet there is one area of the home that owners so often overlook, yet it has a substantial impact on the overall aesthetics of your property and its actual value in the Tampa area real estate market.
Your Shingle Or Barrel Tile Roof.
Even the most basic shingles have an impact on the value and curb appeal of your home. When clean and in good repair, the roof creates a stopping point for the eye, framing the home below and the grounds surrounding it. Yet an unsightly, dirty, algae or mold covered roof does the exact opposite, making even brand new siding, stunningly painted shutters, and well-thought-out flower beds look old, dingy and out of place.
Non Pressure Roof Cleaning dramatically improves the overall look of your home. And anything that improves the look of your home ups its property value.
Dirty roofs detract buyers. A dirty roof in Tampa automatically appears to be in disrepair, even if the shingles, tile or asphalt membrane below are actually in good condition. In real estate, appearances are everything, and if something looks like it’s broken, the property value reflects that, even if there’s no real damage present.
Regularly cleaned roofs last longer. A new roof is expensive; there’s simply no way around it. Yet people lose years off of the lifespan of their roof simply because they fail to have it cleaned. The algae and mold that grow on roofs, causing those dirty-looking green and brown streaks, actually eat away at your roofing material. So your 30 year roof could really turn into a 20 year roof. In short, a well-maintained roof lasts longer, and properties with long-lasting, expensive features are worth more, whether it’s your roof or the durable tile you choose for your foyer.
Dirty roofs in Tampa stick out like a sore thumb. A lot of what goes into determining property value is the value of the properties surrounding it; if you’re on par with comparable homes, your property value is relatively “true.” Yet if there is something about your home that’s “less than” your neighbors’, your property value drops. Whether or not you’re planning to sell your home in the future, if you live in a deed restricted area with well-maintained roofs, yet algae and mold cover yours, it is automatically worth less than the comparable properties surrounding it. Add in branches, twigs and other debris clogging your gutters and covering recess in the roof, and the in-shambles look quickly drops your property value by thousands of dollars.
Pride in one’s property is a personal thing; some homeowners couldn’t care less, and it shows. Yet taking pride in the appearance of your Tampa area home isn’t just a social undertaking; it just makes good financial sense.
Here is a flat tile roof cleaning in Tampa Palms we did today 11/20/2013
The trees this home is under provide shade, but also make the black streaks come back faster. This is because the trees stop the Sun from drying the roofs moisture up. Heat and Moisture =’s Mold, it’s real simple. In the first picture, you can see some of the debris we had to blow off of this Tile Roof.
We are perfectionists when it comes to cleaning tile roofs, as you can see by the bottom picture. This roof will look even better, after it has had the benefit of a few rains. But you can still see all the edges of the tiles and the ridge caps are all nice and clean, for the holidays. Our customer was a very nice lady, who plans to have her large family over for Thanksgiving.
She has used us to clean her flat tile roof before, over 5 years ago. Tampa Palms was sending out “clean your roof or else” letters, and our trucks were cleaning other homes, on her street.
That’s how she found us, and she remembered us, all these years!
Though we are number one for almost any Tampa Roof Cleaning Search, most of our business comes from happy customers we cleaned years ago like this one, who remember us, and tell their friends.
