Softwash Roof Cleaning Tampa

Here is a shingle roof we recently cleaned. The owner of this roof wanted to put his home on the market sense houses are bringing very good prices in the Tampa area. Because this house was for sale it was going to be put on the market after we got through cleaning it it was important not to use any pressure washing clean this roof. any home that’s going to be place for sale subject to a Roof inspection. So, we did our usual non pressure roof cleaning that some are calling Softwash Cleaning these days, or just Softwashing.

Tampa Tile Roof We Cleaned Last Week

If we have a niche, it would probably be doing large, hard to do tile roofs. Here is one we cleaned awhile ago.
If you look at one of the pictures, you will see the Manlift we used to avoid walking all over this tile roof. This home was put on the market after we completed the Tile Roof Cleaning Using Lift, and the owners were adamant about not having any broken tiles. Yes, the use of a Manlift adds a little more expense to any tile roof cleaning job, but it allows us to safely clean the tiles, w/o any walking on them! This home is in the north part of Tampa. Home values in this area are at an all time high, so these owners decided to list this beautiful home for sale, and move up to the Florida panhandle area, once it sells. Like myself, the owners moved to the Tampa area back in the 1970’s.  Like myself, their Kids are all grown and successful.  In fact, we spent a considerable amount of time showing each other pictures of our Grandchildren!  I am 64 years old, and it was sure cool to meet some customers from my generation!

So, if you are looking into getting your tile roof cleaned, and you want it done right, give us a call at 813.655.8777

 

Commercial Tile Roof Cleaning Tampa FL

Here is a tile roof we just cleaned in Tampa. Because this is is a commercial office building, we had to work on the weekend, when these Doctor’s Offices are closed.  As seen in the images below the tile of the roof was quite dirty. It had years of Mold, Mildew, and Algae buildup on it. The Doctor’s were very pleased with our work, and one doctor said we made the tile roof look just like it did when it was new. He was so impressed, he hired up to clean the roof on his personal home in the Westshore Yacht Club Community. His personal home sits right on Tampa Bay.

Tile Roof Cleaning Using Lift

Here is a large tile roof cleaning job we just did in Valrico, Florida. Valrico Florida is an eastern suburb of Tampa.
As you can see, we used a large man lift to prevent us having to walk on this tile roof. A man lift like this that not only goes up, but also goes over the roof is technically called an articulating boom lift. Sometimes they are also known as a knuckle boom lift. This home was sold to a new buyer, and the old owner of this home could not take a chance of any broken tiles, because that could void the sales contract. A large articulating boom manlift can cost over 150,000.00, far too expensive for any roof cleaning company to own. When a lift is needed to clean a steep or very fragile tile roof, we rent them. However, unlike some other Tampa Tile Roof Cleaning Companies, we do not mark up our cost to rent a lift! We are not looking to “sock it to our customers” , or close a sale. We are looking to open a relationship because we want to be your roof cleaning company for life!
The heat, moisture and humidity here in the Tampa Florida area ensure that your roof will get dirty again, so you will need a roof cleaner in the future, and we want that roof cleaner to be Apple Roof Cleaning Tampa !

Will Copper Strips Keep Your Roof Clean ?

Roof cleaning measures such as pressure washing can remove or roughen the surface of the roofing material, reducing the intended productive life of the roof. At best it is a messy, temporary solution which would need to be repeated frequently. This sort of procedure also does nothing to kill the spores that created the Algae and Black Mold.  Plus, Pressure Washing will damage your roof!  will give more details. Look at some of the damage it can cause below.

Copper strips is a natural “solution” to roof moss, algae and mold problems.
We feel Copper Strips perform far better then Zinc Strips do here in the Tampa, Florida area.
When fitted on a clean roof, the Copper Strip will HELP, but not totally prevent plant growth on your Florida Roof by exposure to air and water which causes the copper to oxidise, creating Copper Sulphate which runs down the length of your roof in the rain water. Gutter Cleaning helps to minimise unnecessary weight on the roof that can affect its integrity and longevity. 1 OAK Roofing is just what you need.

This is deadly to roof plant spores and will therefore HELP keep your roof free from Algae. This effect is obvious under copper vent pipes or lead flashing’s under chimneys. Mind you, that flat roofs are easier to maintain and keep clean.

Copper Strips —the low cost, natural alternative to repetitive roof cleaning, HELPS put an end to moss, algae and Mold on your Tampa Florida roof. If you require any help with the replacement or repairs of your roof, contact us today.

I feel the Copper Strips work, to a degree.
In our opinion, they are “better then NO roof protection”.
Plus, the Copper Strips look FAR better in our opinion, taking on a nice Copper Patina over time.

Cleaning Black Roof Algae Tampa Florida

Is there Black Roof Algae on your Tampa Roof ?
Algae growth on  roofs has reached unprecedented levels in many parts of Florida today. It creates a dull and dirty appearance which can reduce the value of your Florida home. Roofing materials like tiles, slates, cement and all become dull and weakened by Algae and Black Mold growth. Even the thinnest layer of Algae and Black Mold is a problem because it acts like a sponge, absorbing water, which increases the weight and stress on your Florida roof, shortening its productive life. Heat damage is another problem when there is Algae and Black Mold on your roof as it can push the tiles up and crack them.

Much of Tampa Florida’s unprecedented spread of roof Algae and Black Mold can be traced to the Clean Air Act which reduced the output of Sulphur (poisonous to moss) into the atmosphere via coal and fossil burning power stations, or domestic fires and unleaded fuel. Roof Algae which would have been previously killed off by this sulphur in the Florida atmosphere now requires direct action through commercial roof repair and maintenance like regular roof cleaning to prevent it from spreading.

Roof cleaning measures such as pressure washing by reliable austin roofing contractors can remove or roughen the surface of the roofing material, reducing the intended productive life of the roof. At best it is a messy, temporary solution which would need to be repeated frequently. This sort of procedure also does nothing to kill the spores that created the Algae and Black Mold.

suggests that no pressure roof cleaning process not only cleans your roof safely, it also kills this Algae, so it doesn’t grow back so fast!
