Our Soft Wash Roof Cleaning chemicals provide enough cleaning power to remove all mold, mildew, and streaks…without pressure washing or heavy rinsing.

In MOST Cases, AFTER CLEANING, we guarantee your roof will LOOK very close to, if not, 100% BRAND NEW!

Pressure washing is never recommended because it will remove a large amount of the ceramic coated granules from your shingles, which will void the warranty. Even low pressure will cause granule loss and shorten the life of your shingles. If you have ever cleaned out the inside of your gutters you will notice granules in them just from the rain taking them off.

Think what any additional pressure would do to your roof. For instance, you see someone cleaning a roof with pressure and it appears they have done a good job just because the streaks and discoloration are gone, but guess what?

So is a large amount of the protective ceramic coated granules which insure your shingle’s warranty. Nobody wants to replace a prematurely failed roof due to an incompetent Tampa roof cleaning contractor, and you shouldn’t have to.

Apple Roof Cleaning Of Tampa FL 813-655-8777 offer an un conditional 1 year warranty against any streaks reappearing on your shingles.

With our exclusive Treatment and Maintenance PROGRAM your Tampa area roof will never be STAINED or streaked again.

As a property owner in Tampa, it is in your best interest to always use a “cleaning AGENT, chemical only” soft wash cleaning process for your roof.

Soft Wash Roof cleaning in Tampa is a completely different trade from pressure washing, requiring different pumps, plumbing, hoses, nozzles, valves, chemicals, caution, knowledge, experience, skill, and insurance. Certified RCIA roof cleaners have all of the necessary tools, and have learned from the best soft wash roof cleaning professionals in the country.

Make sure you know what kinds of chemicals are being applied on your property.

Do not accept “it’s biodegradable” for an answer. Even uranium is biodegradable over 50,000 years or so.

Because many “competitors” lack our roof cleaning equipment, knowledge, training, and experience, they sometimes apply a dangerously strong chemical solution. Sodium Hydroxide and Potassium Hydroxide will dissolve the asphalt and tar on your roof, shortening the life of your shingles and voiding the roof’s warranty. Even sodium metasilicate is too corrosive.

Our chemicals do all of the work to remove streaks and discoloration from your roof and require no pressure or heavy rinsing. Because we do not have to rinse, your roof will stay cleaner longer than our competitors. Leaving the soft wash chemicals on the roof in Tampa creates a roof treatment or a hostile environment for future algae growth. Each time it rains, a small amount of soft wash chemical is washed off to help re-clean your roof over and over again.

Are you concerned about your plants, pets, and landscaping? Don’t be. We have two decades of soft wash roof cleaning experience and can gladly provide references, if needed.

We only spray the roof, not your plants. We always bag the ends of your downspouts; collect all the chemical run-off from the roof and dispose of them away from your landscaping.

If the roof does not have gutters we will thoroughly dilute the roof cleaning chemical down to safe levels by spraying the landscaping with water before, during, and after applying chemical.

After the soft wash chemical biodegrades and evaporates from the roof, the dried crystals and surfactant act as a roof treatment to keep the roof cleaner longer as it rains.

Apple Roof Cleaning Of Tampa FL 813-655-8777 have had to go behind many competitors who pressure wash or rinse their customer’s roofs, which start growing mold and streaks after only 1 year. Our average non pressure soft wash roof cleaning remains streak free guaranteed on typical asphalt shingle roofs for a minimum of 1 year, but we typically see at least 3 – 6 years between cleanings. We guarantee our soft wash roof cleaning will outlast our competitors! On average the price of cleaning your roof vs. replacing it, averages 1/10 the cost!
