Here is an example of a beautiful tile roof cleaning. This particular roof spans nearly 8,000 sq. ft. and had just been cleaned 1.5 years before the photos below.
The reason for sharing is that this roof really shouldn't require cleaning again so soon, but it was cleaned improperly. The previous "roof cleaner" used high pressure, and actually stripped the glazing from these tiles. The damage done is irreversible, and leaves the tiles looking dull, compared to their original appearance.
You would think that pressure washing a tile roof might be alright, because tiles are tough. The issue is that they are not meant to withstand such high pressure close up blasting. Inexperienced roof cleaning companies who use pressure washers to clean roofs are causing lasting damage, voiding warranties, and they don't even get to the root of the problem. Some may use a high pressure wand and blast away at individual tiles or shingles, while others may pressure wash using a concrete surface cleaner. Presumably they dial down the pressure, but even that is still wrong and can cause unwanted damage. The fast swinging arm of a surface cleaner can break tiles if it comes into contact with them. Surface cleaners are designed for flat surfaces, not rounded tiles, so it won't even blast all the algae off evenly.
Speaking of algae, that's the part these high pressure roof destroyers are missing. Some may use "shampoos" or other weak cleaners, but they still rely on damaging high pressure blasting to clean your roof. The cleaning doesn't last very long, because it's algae, moss, lichens, and other organic contaminants that cause a dirty roof. If the cleaners you're using do not kill these organic invaders, their roots and spores will remain no matter how much pressure you blast them with. This means they will infest the roof again quickly, essentially negating the good they may have done by voiding your warranty with high pressure!
