Some Barrel Tile Roofs We Cleaned In Tampa Last Week

Here are 3 barrel tile roofs we cleaned in the Tampa Florida area last week 5-12-2015   As you can see, one of them had quite a lot of tree debris, and even some Moss on the north side of the roof. 2 out of 3 of these roof cleaning customers are what we call repeat customers that we cleaned for, years ago. They remembered the great job we did, cleaning their tile roofs properly, w/o breaking the tiles, and hired us again. In fact, most of out current customers are repeat customers, and we

Tile Roof Cleaned In Davis Islands

We like to clean roofs on Davis Islands. My Mom is a volunteer at Tampa General Hospital, and if we get our work done early enough, I can always stop and see my Mom, who I love very much. This lovely home on Davis Island was a 2 story cement barrel tile roof cleaning we did. The customers just got transferred here to the Tampa Florida area, from Nebraska! To say they were in Heaven is an understatement! I hit it off real well with this customer, he was a fellow football nut, like me!

Some Tile Roof Cleaning Trucks We Have Built

Cleaning A Flat Tile Roof North Of Tampa

Here is a 6000 plus square foot flat tile roof we just cleaned yesterday 8-14-2014 up in Land O Lakes, just north of Tampa Florida. This was a fairly easy flat tile roof to clean, because it had gutters all around it. These gutters emptied into downspouts that went well underground. This building is the clubhouse for a large, Tampa area subdivision. It has a large, Olympic size swimming pool behind it. We do all the roof cleaning for a Tampa Roofing Contractor, who sent us

Cleaning Tile Roofs In Tampa Florida

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 no

Tampa Barrel Tile Roof Cleaned

Here is a 2 story barrel tile roof we just cleaned in Tampa last week 7-2-2013. As u can see from the pictures, we needed a 40 ft ladder to clean this tile roof. This home is in South Tampa, near the water. Land is expensive in this area, and even though the lot for this house is sort of narrow, the home went back into the lot a considerable ways. The sq ft of this tile roof was well over 5000 square feet. The job came out wonderfully, and our customer was very happy. This home has t

Tampa Palms Tile Roof Cleaned 6-05-2014

We cleaned this flat tile roof today 6-5-2014, and we are very happy with the results of this job in Tampa Palms. Few roofs look better, when they are clean, then a white tile roof, and few look worse, when they are dirty! This roof cleaning job came to us from a well known Tampa Painting Company. This customer wanted to get his roof cleaned first, before he has his home painted. These folks were very very nice people, and are from one of Tampa's original founding families! Despite our "pr

Barrel Tile Roof Cleaning Tampa Florida

This barrel tile roof was really filthy, but as you can see, it cleaned up really nice.  These customers were up in Tampa Palms, and were referred to us by their roofer, who did some repairs.

If you are within 50 miles of the greater Tampa Florida area, and would like to get an idea of the cost to have yo

Tile Roof Cleaning Cory Lake Isles

Here is a flat tile roof we cleaned today in the Cory Lake Isle's subdivision of New Tampa. It was right on a lake, and the tile roof was heavily infested with algae growth. The owner lives out of town, and wanted to get his roof cleaned. His realtor suggested us to him, and we were hired to clean his property. The pictures are not the best, but you can see the flat tile roof cleaned up nicely. We do a lot of work in Cory Lake Isles and New Tampa. Call us at 813-655-8777 for a free Tile

Cleaning A Barrel Tile Roof In Tampa Palms 33647

We nearly "live" in zip code 33647, because not a week goes by that we are not doing several barrel tile roof cleanings, many like this lovely home, in Tampa Palms. This home has what is called glazed (ceramic) roof tiles. They are extremely strong, and can safely be walked on, w/o fear of any breakage. However, they are glazed, and extremely slippery! We want to clean your roof, but we do not want to slip and fall, so we have to be very careful. Glazed Ceramic Tiles are truly a thing

Non Pressure Tile Roof Cleaning New Tampa

Here is one we cleaned up in New Tampa, in zip code 33647. This tile roof was a previous customer who used our service 5 years ago. They got another roof cleaning letter from their homeowners assocation. We barely got this job completed, when the sky broke loose with rain and lightning. It can be very scary when you are cleaning a tile roof, and it starts to lightning. Our customers were delighted with the job we did, and so were we! If you need our services, call us at 813

Barrel Tile Roof Cleaning Tampa FL

We cleaned these tile roofs in various Tampa subdivisions recently. The absence of the tropical storm Andrea allowed us to get 2 roofs done, by each of our two trucks today. The weather here in Tampa has been very rainy and windy lately, and caused us to get a little backed up with work. We can not spray a tile roof, in the rain, or on a windy day. Here are some examples of what you can expect from your tile roof cleaning. If you live in the great Tampa Florida area, call us at 81

Non Pressure Tile Roof Cleaning Tampa FL

It was a busy week for us. Here are just a few tile roofs we cleaned chemically in the 33647 zip code of New Tampa. The Thanksgiving and Halloween Holidays are fast approaching, and the season is starting here in Tampa. One of these tile roofs belonged to a winter resident, who could not believe how dirty the recent rains here in Tampa had made his once beautiful tile roof! He just got back here to Tampa from his summer home up in Northern Virginia, and called us right away. These are

Barrel Tile Roof Cleaning Cheval

Here is a barrel tile roof we just cleaned 8-14-2013 up in Cheval. The Cheval Golf Community is located in Lutz Florida, just north of Tampa. This home belonged to a Radiologist, and the nice doctor gave me hell, because I still smoke cigarettes! Our customer got a clean your roof or else letter from the Cheval Homeowners Association, and asked his neighbors who they have used before. He told us that 3 out of 4 people he asked suggested he call us, and only us! We do, and have done a T

Barrel Tile Roof Cleaned In New Tampa 33647

This barrel tile roof we cleaned this week 8-20-2013 is in the Hunters Green section of New Tampa. LOL, we practically live in zip code 33647, because not a week goes by we are not in a New Tampa community, cleaning flat and barrel tile roofs. This home was quite large at 5800 sq ft, with a 4 car garage. It had a ton of expensive landscaping, and no gutters, so we had to take our time and work slow during this barrel tile roof cleaning, to protect our customers landscaping.

Chemical Cleaning Of Tile Roofs

Chemical roof cleaning is now the most widely accepted method of cleaning flat, barrel, and concrete tile roofs in Tampa. Pressure Washing only removes the surface layers of Algae, and in the process often damages the tiles. Chemical cleaning on the other hand kills the Algae, including it’s roots and spores, and the chemical application insures that no damage is done to the tiles. The result is a much cleaner tile roof, that will remain clean longer. Here are a few jobs we have clean

We Never Pressure Wash Tile Roofs !

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. The article below was written by our good friend, and fellow RCIA Master Certified Tile Roof Cleaner Chuck Bergman.

Roof Cleaners Tampa FL

We had a customer in Tampa call us last week 8-23-2013, and ask us if all we clean is big expensive homes, with tile roofs! She was looking for non pressure roof cleaners in the Tampa FL area, who would be willing to clean her home in Carrollwood, that has a shingle (not tile) roof. Her mother lives in the Reserve at Tampa Palms, and she told us that we are well known as the best roof cleaners, by her Mother, and all her Mothers wealthy friends. I got quite a good hearted chuckle out of

Non-Pressure Tile Roof Cleaning Tampa FL

Non-Pressure Tile Roof Cleaning: The Safe Alternative to the Pressure Washer There’s nothing good about a pressure washer being used to clean a tile roof. The brute force of thousands of psi of water shooting out from the end of a surface cleaner, whisking away dirt, debris and discoloration seems efficient, quick and ideal. But it really isn’t a good or a safe way to clean a tile roof in Tampa. While the pressure washer is blowing dirt and debris away, it’s also often damaging

Apple Tile Roof Cleaning Of Tampa

The dark streaks you see on your tile roof in Tampa are an algae called gloeocapsa magma. This fungus is transported by airborne spores, and by birds, squirrels, etc. Once attached to the tile roof it begins to feed on the organic matter found in your roof. If left untreated, it will continue to grow and spread, until the tile roof eventually becomes totally black. This Algae can cause tile roofs to fail prematurely, and it can raise your utility bill. You should never pres
