We see some outfits here in Tampa advertising a so called “low pressure, environmentally safe, chemical roof cleaning method.”
The ads seem almost too good to be true.
No bleach, safe for plants, biodegradable, non toxic, made by a chemist, environmentally friendly, everything they think you want to hear.
But, if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.
Remember, that’s a plant growing on your roof, so if its safe for plants, how can it chemically kill the one growing on your roof ?
Do you want to get your shingle roof cleaned every 6 months ?
Sodium Hydroxide, the active ingredient these companies use, is extremely caustic and corrosive.
Strong Sodium Hydroxide chemical roof cleaning solutions can cause the granules to start falling off your shingles by dissolving the glue holding them in place.
Still want that stuff on your roof ???
The Consumer Product Safety Commission published a voluntary recall of one of these unapproved “Roof Cleaning Chemicals” and you will soon see why ! Roof Cleaner Recall
High levels of Sodium Hydroxide, yuk !
Perhaps they really are not as “environmentally friendly, non toxic, or biodegradable roof cleaning chemicals” as claimed ?
These Sodium Hydroxide chemical solutions are applied by the “roof cleaning company”, they wait 30 minutes for it to “work”, and then they are rinsed off, supposedly with no pressure.
But how do you KNOW its really “no pressure” ??
If it really is “Non Pressure Roof Cleaning”, then why are they using a Pressure Washer to rinse it off, DUH ?
Remember, this unapproved roof cleaning chemical takes 30 minutes to work, and if a spot is missed, or the Sodium Hydroxide didn’t “take”, they must re – apply the harmful roof cleaning chemical, and then wait another 30 minutes.
Don’t think for a minute that someone is going to sit there waiting another 30 minutes out in the hot Tampa sun to re – apply the roof cleaning chemical.
They are simply going to get down off the roof, and turn up the pressure washing machine, until the high pressure removes the spots the roof cleaning chemical missed !
So now the “Low pressure roof cleaning” has turned into regular old pressure washing.
IF they were really using “no pressure roof cleaning” why don’t they just simply wait for a good rain to rinse it off, or use a garden hose ?
Because their roof cleaning chemical will not rinse off with a good rain or a garden hose, and it wont rinse off with low enough pressure to not remove the granules from your roof.
The Asphalt Shingle Manufacturer’s know this, and that’s one of many reasons you will NEVER see a letter of approval from ARMA for this dangerous type of roof pressure washing.
Don’t be fooled by the claims of it’s EPA registered, environmentally safe, made to clean roofs, safe for plants, environmentally friendly, no more pressure than a Garden Hose, etc.
Check them out, call 411, do they even have a company name with a telephone listing or a Business License, are they Chamber of Commerce members?
Call your local Tampa – Brandon Florida area roofing contractor, have they ever heard of them, or know of any asphalt or fiberglass shingle roof they have chemically cleaned ?
Can they produce references from Shingle Manufacturers, or roofing contractors, proving they are competent to chemically clean your roof?
Are they roof cleaning experts, or simply inexperienced wanna bees or part timers, who do a roof every now and then ?
Sodium Hydroxide is used to strip paint, is an active ingredient in Drain openers, is extremely corrosive, and causes severe burns.

Still want that chemical on your roof?

There is no need to settle for less.
