Apple Roof Cleaning Tampa will never use any form of Pressure Washing on a Tile Roof. Using high pressure to clean a tile roof is a crude, and invasive form of cleaning. Instead of relying on high pressure to remove the algae and dirt, we use soaps and tile roof cleaning chemicals, specially designed to clean your roof the safest, and most long lasting way possible.

As you can see, we took the time it takes to properly protect these particular types of landscaping plants.
We clean all types of roofs,
