  1. Your shingled roof came with a zinc or copper particle as part them. That powdered zinc / copper will slowly leach itself out and stop algae infestations on the roofing. That usually lasts about 7 years. After about 7 years, you will see some graying coloration, often in streaks, but not always.
    Then soon it will turn black with a tough algae known as Gloeocapsa magma. Once it starts infesting your roof and eating away at the limestone filler in the shingles, you will find quite a bit of your roofs coloration granules in your gutters, just from the strength of rainstorms.
    Tile comes with no anti fungal properties, it relies on it's glazing, to let water run off and not saturate the tile, creating an algae infestation paradise. When it comes to shingles, we are talking about algae DAMAGE. Tile on the other hand is mainly just that it makes it look ugly! So, if ugly doesn't bother you, your tile roof will not be damaged by the Gloeocapsa magma growing on it. Of course, that wet black living algae will increase your air conditioning costs considerably, whether tile or shingle. In fact, a few years of high AC bills would have given you the money needed to have it professionally cleaned and a good job will last, so that you only need to re-clean it every 4 years or so!
    I have been cleaning roofs here- based out of Englewood Florida, since 1989.
    In 1989 I pressure washed all roofing, just as all the other pressure cleaning contractors did. That's all anyone back then knew how to do!
    Fortunately for homeowners, the shingle roofing manufacturers got tired of paying for premature roof failure, due to pressure washing machines removing the granules, that protect and colored the shingled roofs, so those manufacturers came up with a totally new and non destructive manner of cleaning that black algae from their products. This process is called Non-Pressure Cleaning [ Or chemically cleaning, No-Pressure Cleaning and Soft-Washing ]
    This was and is the only good answer to the problem! No more premature roofing failure due to blasting the granules off the roofs with power washing equipment! I bought the needed equipment { NO PRESSURE WASHER IS USED } and now I clean all roofs with this gentle, long lasting method.
    More about tile in a minute, but at the following link you can read what these roofing manufacturers say to do. You will note that each one says "DO NOT PRESSURE WASH"
    http://www.bergmanpr..._Specifics.html

    Tile roofing is a different story, when it comes to warranty claims. These manufacturers never had to deal with premature roof failure from algae eating away at the roofing, nor, for the most part, due to pressure washing damage. The reason is that pressure washing tile will remove the tiles glazing, etch / pit the tiles surface and blow pieces of the cement holding the ridgecaps in place off into space! However, the homeowner is not likely to be aware of that-thus, no claims!
    Therefore, they are still in the dark ages, as to cleaning and have never cared to change their website wording and some suggest power washing the tile. I can reason things out, with all the roof cleaning experience I have though, so I clean tile in the same exact manner-gently, with Non-Pressure Cleaning!
    As I said, I once pressure Cleaned Shingles and Tile, I noticed that the pressure washers blasting power removed the glazing on the tile and if the roof had been cleaned 1 two 3 or more times previous to my cleaning, by another pressure washing person, that they had already removed the glazing and I was now removing some of the slurry coating. The slurry coating is basically the factory paint job you see as color on the outside of the tile. Pressure washing can start turning that colored tile into a pale image of it's once new color. It can turn a red tile roof into a pinkish color eventually.
    So, if roofing can be cleaned, without blasting it with a pressure washer, why not do a gentle cleaning on the tile roofing as well? Another point: a gentle chemical cleaning job lasts around 4 years, before it needs to be cleaned again. Pressure washed roofs generally need cleaning every 2 years. Some don't even last that long, as pressure washing does not totally kill off the Gloeocapsa magma, it just makes the black color, which is not the living plant itself, but a black shell it grows for it's protection.
    Chemical cleaning completely erradicates every algae spore on the roof, without blowing it all over your property with a pressure cleaning ,machines' blast!
    So, those are some facts for you, to help you make a sensible decision on how to have your Charlotte County Fl or Sarasota County Florida roof cleaned.
    Now, what about pressure cleaning?
    It's perfect for cleaning surfaces you can stay a long distance from. This includes houses, mobile homes, manufactured homes, aluminum house soffit, fascia, gutter face trim, pool cages, enclosures, porches,decks and docks. It's also especially great when you want to take advantage of it's up close blasting power! Like for driveways or parking lots. In fact, that is also where a surface cleaning machine is used! { I own 2 of them-it's the yellow machine in one of the videos.
    Some pressure washing companies are using these powerful cutting jet machines to clean roofs!!! OUCH!!!
    Unbelievable to me! These people will do anything to get your money, with little operating costs to themselves and no care for the damage they inflict on your tile, or, heaven forbid on your shingles! To make it sound gentle { It Ain't! }, some say they are using it for shampooing roofs! Ha ha! I know better!
    Here are some videos I have made to show you just how roofing really should be cleaned, based on the roofing manufacturers specifications for cleaning. I will also add video showing a Cement Surface cleaning machine operating, with us cleaning a driveway with it.
    Lastly there will be a video about my business.
    Thank you for reading my blog and this information will be of help to you I am sure, to not damage your roof, using any process to get the black algae cleaned off, other than soft washing it, with a no-pressure, chemical cleaning system!

  2. It is June here in Tampa Florida, but we managed to get some tile roofs cleaned for our customers, in between the afternoon Thundershowers.
    The entire Tampa area is over 4 inches down in rainfall from normal, so we need every drop of rain we can get.  Yes, it can make tile roof cleaning difficult if not impossible, so we just have to work around it.  After over 25 years of cleaning roofs in this area, many of our customers are repeat customers, who know we will get their job done, when it is not raining.
    Here are a few of the before and after the tile roof cleaning pictures we took.

  4. A to Z Softwash is the most experienced roof cleaning company servicing Cape Cod, Southern mass, Rhode island, Nantucket and Martha's Vineyard. All roof are cleaned without using a pressure washer!
    Growths such as lichen, moss, fungi, bacteria and algae are on most roofs these days. The first growth that shows its ugly head is typically bacteria (black streaks). Once this growths takes hold it will colonize and spread rapidly. Just like every other living thing, as it eats it excretes waste. This waste product is a food for other things..... such as moss and lichen! That is why when you see lichen in Southern Mass and Cape Cod it is usually growing right on top of the bacteria. It's an Algae party and your roof was invited.
    The only appropriate course of action is to hire your local roof cleaning company in Massachusetts that uses the proper methods. Which is of course a non pressure cleaning using the detergents that the shingle manufacturers recommend. Pressure washing, roof scrubbing and low pressure are terms and things you need to watch out for as those methods will damage your shingles. Another tip would be for you to ask for a copy of there insurance policy to be sure that you will be covered if god forbid something does go wrong.
    Asphalt shingles and cedar shingle roofs are going to have a short lifespan if they aren't clean, this is a fact. Insurance companies are even making people clean their roofs more and more. They are doing this because algae is costing them money!
    I haven't even mentioned the fact that dirty roofs are (forgive me for saying it) ugly. Take a look at some of our work below to see for yourself.

  6. Cedar roofs and shingles are generally porous in that it is easy for algae, moss and lichen to plant there root like connectors. Once they do this it can be very difficult to remove them without causing damage! The best solution is to maintain your siding properly from day one, which would mean have the wood cleaned and conditioned every 2-3 years so that the wood always stays in tip top condition. This can be impossible for some and others may even buy a home and inherit a building envelope that has not been properly cared for. If this is the case the wood may be very tender due to the various growths causing over saturation of the wood. Since most cedar in Massachusetts is not brand new any more it needs to be maintained professionally by a company that knows how to get the job done without causing any damage. It's best to hire a Cedar roof cleaning company that uses a Softwash (non pressure) method.
    A to Z Softwash cleans cedar literally everyday, cleaning on average 1 cedar roof every week and cedar siding every day. We come across homes that the sidewall is literally green with algae growth. Some homes have tons of orange fungi growth along the bottom foot, and we can take care of that too.

  8. This metal tile roof was covered in moss and algae and was one of our first jobs of the 2017 season. Metal tiles accumulate significantly more moss than typical metal roofs as the tiles provide extra shade that the moss loves. Extra care needs to be taken on these types of roofs as the metal tiles bend easily if care is not taken to step on the edge of the tile where it is supported. A combination of manual removal and treatment got this roof back to looking the way it should. You can contact us through our website to chat more about this type of roof cleaning. http://westcoastroofcleaning.com


  9. Cedar Shake Roof and Cedar Siding Cleaning in Schaumburg Cook County
    Brown rot fungus, commonly known as “dry rot,” presents itself as a black or dirt brown color. It commonly causes the wood to be dry and fragile, cracking across the grain. It is dangerous because it rapidly decays the cellulose and hemicellulose in the shingles, leaving a brown residue of lignin (the substance that holds the wood cells together). Brown rot is generally more serious than white rot, as it can quickly weaken the shingle before any visible signs are detected.   If left untreated, the shingles will easily crumble into cubes, and turn into a powder when crushed.
    Moss, which is appears green and spongy retains constant moisture on the cedar shake. Furthermore, it does not permit the red cedar to breathe as it should. This causes the cedar shake wood to deteriorate rapidly.
    Be sure to periodically examine your cedar siding and cedar shake roof for the aforementioned colors. If you see any of them and suspect you may need a siding cleaner or roof cleaner contractor, be sure to contact a professional roofing and siding cleaner. The longer you put it off, the more damage will incur resulting in more costs to you.  To read more, go here.
     
     
  10. Barrel tile roofs require regular cleaning just like any other kind of roofing material. Just like asphalt shingle roof cleaning, the color is usually completely restored during the cleaning process. This roof is a great example.

    This particular barrel tile roof is actually in Ponte Vedra, Florida, outside of Jacksonville in the beautiful Marsh Landing community. The homeowners were required by their homeowner association to have the roof cleaned. This is typical of many HOA's all across the country. Keeping your roof clean keeps the neighborhood looking nice, but also helps reduce the spread of the type of algae that causes your roof to discolor over time.

    Just like asphalt shingles, barrel tiles should not be cleaned using pressure alone. Many colored concrete tiles can be stripped over their color by using pressure washing methods. Ultrasoft Pressure Washing takes the pressure out of everything with our Ultrasoft methods.
    Our barrel tile roof cleaning process consists of a zero pressure application of a proprietary roof cleaning solution to safely and effectively restore your roof's natural color. Each roof is different, so the solution is tailored to each home that we clean, but the results are the same. The original color and vibrancy of your roof is restored before we leave. Even better, after a couple of hard rains, any residual matter left on the roof is rinsed off, and your roof will actually improve in appearance even more.
    Have a look at this massive 6,500 sq. ft. barrel tile roof we recently cleaned with our zero pressure roof cleaning process. Even while wet, you can see the color is restored, and this roof looks amazing.

    If you need barrel tile roof cleaning in Jacksonville, Florida or even Ponte Vedra, Florida call Ultrasoft Pressure Washing LLC today. (904) 304-0810 or fill out our contact form at our roof cleaning and pressure washing website.

  12. Roof cleaning in Jacksonville, Florida, or anywhere else for that matter, is not an easy task. To properly clean a roof without damaging the roof itself, the landscaping, finishes on the home and it's surroundings is a task that takes experience, know how, and time to get it right. 

    Roof cleaning is somewhat risky, climbing around on sloped surfaces, the risk of damage to the roof itself, the landscaping below, etc. There are many reasons to be careful who you hire for your roof cleaning. Many people wrongly assume roof cleaning is simple, and anyone can do it. These people seek out the lowest priced roof cleaning companies, and many pay heavily for it. This unfortunately leaves a bad taste in their mouths where roof cleaners are concerned. 

    One thing to realize is that even experienced, certified roof cleaning companies can have issues at times. Roof cleaning is a delicate endeavor that requires a lot of thought, planning, and care to make sure it goes right. The key to a good roof cleaning is more in caring for the property around the roof. The solutions used to clean roofs can be dangerous in the wrong hands. There are also dangers of working at heights, spraying liquids, and walking on slippery wet surfaces. 
    Hiring a certified roof cleaning company to handle your roof cleaning project for you is a great way to ensure you get someone who has the knowledge, experience, and equipment to safely and efficiently clean your roof. 

    If you need a roof cleaning company in Jacksonville, Florida, call Ultrasoft Pressure Washing LLC today. RCIA certified roof cleaning experts you can count on. 904-304-0810

  14. Gutter cleaning and vinyl cleaner Cicero, Cook County
    The next time you are outside, take a good look at your siding. Do you see green and black discoloration? That discoloration is actually algae, mildew and mold! They release air borne spores into the air. That is how they got there to begin with. Those organisms are alive and it can create an unhealthy environment for your family and pets, not to mention they are destroying the appeal of your property.  We are seeing more and more of this in Cicero and surrounding communities in Cook and other collar counties.
    The good news is that these invaders can be safely removed by a process called soft washing. Go here to read the rest of the story.

  16. Cedar Roof and Siding Cleaning in Elgin, Kane County Illinois
    The owners of this house were almost convinced that their cedar shake roof was beyond cleaning and would need to be replaced. Unfortunately most people don’t realize cedar shake roofs, as well as siding, needs to be periodically cleaned.  A properly maintained cedar roof will last at least forty years. The cedar shingles had dark gray, black and greenish colors.  The green spongy organisms that were growing on the cedar roof were moss. These are signs that the roof was overdue for a cleaning.

    Just had word that on the a homeowner was refused insurance on a 1.1 million property due to the mossy condition of the homes roof.  Without the full removal of moss, the home would not have qualified for mortgage insurance.
    Insurance companies are getting much more critical of a homes condition and the trends are to visit and inspect the home for approval whereas in the past policy's could by obtained over the phone with the exchange of documentation of the home.   In speaking with the Insurance Bureau of Canada rarely does a homeowners policy cover damage due to neglectful maintenance.
    Often internal home rot and mould can go undetected for some time only becoming apparent at the time of roof replacement resulting in a more costs.  Keeping your roof free of moss is critical in the upkeep of your home. Moss removal can often be conducted with simple maintenance treatments.  The heavier the moss the more costly to remove.  Call us to discuss your home.  Jeff Mathieson 250-218-3099  www.tartanwindowcleaning.com  
  20. Here's a beautiful example of our certified barrel tile roof cleaning results. This old tile roof was cleaned safely using zero pressure and environmentally friendly methods approved by the Roof Cleaning Institute of America. 
    A potential client recently stated that she was given another quote, for much cheaper than what any professional usually charges, and it sounded like the same process. It was her inclination to go with the other contractor, because why not? If it all sounds the same, it must be, right?
    That's not exactly true, and there are many reasons why. First, with Ultrasoft Pressure Washing LLC we are the only RCIA certified roof cleaning company currently active in the Jacksonville, Florida area. We have gone the extra mile to extend our education, and met the requirements needed to become certified roof cleaners. We take our work very seriously, and there are very few companies with our level of knowledge, training, and industry connections. Second we carry insurance that includes "care, custody, and control", which actually protects our client's property should something happen. Most companies carry general liability that offers little protection to home and business owners should they damage something in the process. Third, damage is a serious thing to consider when it comes to roof cleaning. Ultrasoft Pressure Washing utilizes RCIA approved methods that guarantee zero damage, and no loss of warranty due to improper practices. In fact, our company is frequently used by shingle manufacturers and insurance companies for warranty cleanings. 

    Even if a method sounds similar, and uses similar processes, there are limits to how a roof should be cleaned. Zero pressure roof cleaning uses specific chemical mixtures to clean the roof of algae and other organic contaminants. If these mixtures are used at too high of a concentration they can and will damage your roof. That goes for asphalt, metal roofing, epdm or rubber roof surfaces, and other types of roofing materials. The wrong mixtures run higher risks of damaging landscaping and other surfaces not intended for roof cleaning solutions. To top it off, what sounds like the same type of chemicals for roof cleaning can be very, very different. Sodium hydroxide and sodium hypochlorite are very similar sounding, and too much of either is a bad thing. However, the properly metered ratios and concentrations of one over the other can safely clean any type of roofing materials. 
    Just like when buying a car, a lot of things sound the same. Both have wheels and tires, steering wheels, doors, windows, mirrors, etc. However, nobody would dare confuse a Yugo for a Ferrari. Indirectly, they sound like the same thing, but there is no comparing a Yugo to a Ferrari. They don't even make Yugos anymore, if that says anything. Same goes for roof cleaning in Jacksonville, Florida. You can go with the Yugo because it sounds like the same thing, but the Ferrari of roof cleaning companies is Ultrasoft Pressure Washing LLC and there is simply no comparison.

    Why Clean my roof?
     
    In the moist climate of Vancouver Island rarely does a home’s roof live up it’s life expectancy.
    The first stage deterioration usually begins  with a airborne bacteria called Gleocaspa Magma a black staining this causes your roof to absorb heat. The added heat causes the shingles to curl. Asphalt shingles are covered with a top layer of particulate calcium and ceramic which is to reflect heat.  Soft washing is recommended by asphalt shingle manufactures.  The calcium is food for algae, lichens, fungi, mosses, moulds and once established can raise the shingles, causing leaks and prevent the natural flow of water off the roof. On terracotta, tile, or ceramic roofs the surface gradually breaks down as contaminants penetrate the surface making the tiles prematurely brittle and leaking. Metal roofs the paint and finish does not last and leaks.  Functionality, aesthetically, and the cost of replacement is why we must maintain our roof.  Maintenance usually commonly is  performed every 5 years. Give us a call at 250-218-3099 9-9 7 days as week.

    In the moist climate of Vancouver Island rarely does a home’s roof live up it’s life expectancy.
    The first stage deterioration usually begins  with a airborne bacteria called Gleocaspa Magma a black staining this causes your roof to absorb heat. The added heat causes the shingles to curl. Asphalt shingles are covered with a top layer of particulate calcium and ceramic which is to reflect heat.  Soft washing is recommended by asphalt shingle manufactures.  The calcium is food for algae, lichens, fungi, mosses, moulds and once established can raise the shingles, causing leaks and prevent the natural flow of water off the roof. On terracotta, tile, or ceramic roofs the surface gradually breaks down as contaminants penetrate the surface making the tiles prematurely brittle and leaking. Metal roofs the paint and finish does not last and leaks.  Functionality, aesthetically, and the cost of replacement is why we must maintain our roof.  Maintenance usually commonly is  performed every 5 years.
