  6.  Soft Wash Roof Cleaning Tampa (813)655-8777

    Soft Washing Roof Cleaning in Tampa – What it IS and What it is NOT Soft Wash Roof Cleaning. It seems to be the NEW Roof and Exterior Cleaning BUZZWORD in some parts of the country these days. But before you get all excited, thinking you have found "something new", please realize it’s merely another term for the safe, non pressure, RCIA Certified Roof Cleaning we have provided the Tampa Florida area, with for over 20 years. Simply, Soft Washing means to clean any exterior surface by using a much lower, gentler amount of pressure than traditionally would be associated with a high pressure, power washing company. In the new millennia however, procedures and methods are changing. There are many reasons for this. Some of these OLD METHODS and routines and chemicals are being reviewed as to their effectiveness and ultimate safety; other methods are now outdated for the surfaces being cleaned, and still others reasons are that new chemical cleaning agent formulations have been developed in recent years that were not available when the pressure cleaning industry first evolved. Still other reasons include change for the sake of liability to the contractor in Tampa cleaning those surfaces and finally, for the sake of the customer getting the best, most effective, safe, “Bang for their hard earned dollar”. Today, most of the exterior cleaning services performed by today’s experienced professional power washers and non pressure roof cleaners here in Tampa, would fall under the soft washing category. The reasoning is that old habits and ways of traditional thinking that the term pressure washing are still so widely used in the residential and commercial segments of the markets and has more to do with its industry term recognition than anything else. Frankly, old habits and old mindsets die hard. My personal definition of the term soft washing is to clean an exterior using 50 psi or less. Less Pressure = Less Chance for Damage Our Motto is to “LET THE SOFT WASH CLEANING AGENTS, NOT THE PRESSURE, DO THE DIRTY WORK” Different surfaces here in Tampa require different levels or amounts of “soft washing” techniques and pressure. For example, the proper way the clean a roof is to use low, or what many refer to as “non pressure roof cleaning”. Well, if water is coming out of the hose, or wand, there is OBVIOUSLY some pressure, but the non pressure terminology is used more to stress the point (common sense) that the surface is receiving almost no agitated disruption that could damage the surface of the shingle or remove important UV granules from the asphalt shingle surface during the soft wash or non pressure roof cleaning process. In Actuality, this is still technically classified as soft washing. As mentioned previously, today’s pressure washing markets are evolving, and so just about anybody who does this type of work on a professional level and has the skills, equipment, and know how, will be cleaning most surfaces using a soft washing method or approach. There are, however, exceptions to the rule, where using a bit more pressure is acceptable. Mainly these exceptions or occurrences are limited to brickwork, masonry or concrete type surfaces, but even then the pressure is just part of the equation; the soft wash cleaning agents or “chemicals” are the real story. The evolution of pressure or power washing in Tampa to the modern standard today of Soft washing is all possible via the extraordinary power of today’s advanced chemistry. Now, in this day and age, there are many high quality, cost effective, cleaning compounds that are available to aid the commercial soft washing contractor in Tampa in cleaning just about any roof or exterior surface. A true, modern, educated, quality exterior cleaning professional in the pressure washing or roof cleaning trades in Tampa, will have a good working knowledge and an arsenal of many different kinds of roof and exterior cleaning solutions and ways and particular methods to safely and effectively use them in the soft washing process in a multitude of environments and circumstances. Word of Caution; If you are a homeowner here in Tampa, and you do hire someone to clean an exterior surface around your house or business and they do not plan to use any cleaning solution to aid in the cleaning process, this a sure fire sign that you may be hiring someone that is either very inexperienced and hasn’t learned how to soft wash roof and exterior surfaces correctly, or possibly someone that simply doesn’t care to learn and educate themselves on the current standards of how to clean things correctly, using the most modern, effective and safe methods. Personally, we at Apple Roof Cleaning Of Tampa are always willing to recommend another qualified pressure washing, power washing and non pressure roof cleaning, or soft washing contractors to customers that are out of our Tampa Florida service area.
  7. Cleaning A Big Tile Roof Near Tampa Florida

    Here is A Big Tile Roof that we cleaned recently. We started this tile roof cleaning at 9 am, and just finished an hour ago. It is now 4.51 pm, and here comes the well known Tampa summertime afternoon rain! This was a large 5500 sq ft home, with a lot of tile roof surface on it. We were barely able to get this large roof all nice and clean, before the rains came. This whole community in Seffner Florida got letters from their association, and this makes the 15th roof we have cleaned in this subdivision. All these roofs are all tile, and every home in here is 4500 sq ft and up. This customer chose us because he has seen our work, and wanted his large tile roof properly cleaned. Our guys had a beautiful view of Lake Thonotosassa from the top of this tile roof. It is one of the larger freshwater lakes in the Tampa Florida area. If you have a tile roof that needs to be cleaned in the Tampa Florida area, call us at 813-655-8777 for a free consultation and estimate.
  8. Chemically Cleaning Barrel Tile Roof In Tampa Florida Here is a barrel tile roof cleaning job near Tampa Florida that we did last week. This luxury custom built home is 14,000 sq feet, including the 5 car garage, and the owner of this beautiful property is a repeat customer. This one had those wide barrel tiles that are quite common on luxury homes here in Tampa. This tile roof also had a lot of Copper designer accents on it, so we had to clean slowly, and be sure not to get any of the barrel tile roof cleaning solution on the Copper Accents or it could have stripped the Patina. Our customer is a car collector, and had several old and rare muscle cars in the garage. He had a Hemi Cuda as well as a 1976 Trans Am 455 4 speed car that was black and gold, with the big Firebird Emblem on the hood. He is also a Tampa Bay Buccaneer Fan, so we talked plenty of football and hot rods, once we got done cleaning his roof. He told me that several Buccaneer's live close to him, in his exclusive subdivision. It feels good when one of our past roof cleaning customers hires us again. We have been doing what we do here in the Tampa area nearly 22 years, and nearly 1/2 of our current business is from customers we have serviced in the past. Though we apply a special roof treatment chemical so our roofs stay clean longer, it is important to kill the Black Algae that is growing on your roof will eventually grow back. The heat and high humidity here in the Tampa Florida area will make certain of that. Our customers home was also right on a freshwater lake, and anytime you have a home on a body of Freshwater, the ambient humidity in the area is also higher, causing accelerated regrowth of this Black Algae Our goal is to prevent the regrowth of this plant, for as long as our current technology permits. Call us at 813-655-8777 for a free estimate and consultation on all your barrel tile roof cleaning needs.We will answer any and all questions you might have about what is the best way to clean your roof, as well as provide an immediate estimate on what it will cost.
  9. Tile Roof Cleaning Tampa FL

    Well, Hurricane Irma is gone, and we are finally back at work, cleaning tile roofs here in the Tampa Florida area. This barrel tile roof home is located in Cory Lake Isles up in the North Tampa area. It really is a nice community, with a bunch of man made lakes. All these lakes increase the ambient humidity, and that accelerates the growth of the mold, mildew, and algae on the tile roofs in Cory Lake Isles. We think the pictures of our tile roof cleaning service speak for themselves. If you live in the Greater Tampa Florida area, and want to get an idea of what it will cost to have your tile roof cleaned, call us at 813-655-8777

  15. Asphalt Shingle Roof Cleaning Jacksonville, Florida

    You are correct. There is no city as large by land mass in the entire country. Thankfully we are centrally located, so we can reach all areas of Jacksonville in relatively short order. Usually less than 30 minutes to almost any area north south east or west. There are a lot of roofs that need cleaning in this area. It is enforced by some HOA's, but they seem to be selective. We are slowly starting to get the public more educated about roof cleaning, so we're hoping to clean the city up! It's amazing how much a dirty roof does to kill curb appeal!

  26. Cleaning Tile Roofs In Tampa Florida

    This is a flat tile roof in South Tampa we did the other day. It was really really dirty, and the before and after the tile roof cleaning pictures were dramatic. There was a huge thunderstorm that passed over South Tampa, a few hours after we got finished, so I imagine this flat tile roof looks even better, after all that rain. Our customers were tickled pink at the results, and left us a great review!
  27. Cleaning Tile Roofs In Tampa Florida

    It is July 5th 2017, and the Tampa Florida area is still nearly 4 inches down from normal rainfall, despite the serious thunderstorms we had during the last few weeks of June. Regardless, we still managed to get some tile roofs cleaned, working in between the afternoon thunderstorms. One of these homes had a Koi Fish Pond, so we had to work very carefully, to keep the fish healthy. These customers lived in North Tampa, and you can see they were ready for us to clean their tile roof, and had their silver car moved far enough away from the house so the tile roof cleaning chemical would not hit it.

    Surfactants can take the oil out of some slate roofs, so we never use Surfactants on slate roofs either.
