Here is A Big Tile Roof that we cleaned today 7-21-2014. 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.

That's funny Dennis I drove by this tile roof cleaning job on the way back from Tampa today to pick up the check, and it looked even better. It rained cats and dogs yesterday, and the roof we cleaned now has had the benefit of a good rain.
the rain came just in time for a good rinsing. I love when that happens.

That's Tampa, in the summertime. You can almost count on afternoon rain, and no matter if you rinse the roof or not, no one can rinse a roof like God Can
When many gallons of water fall on the roof from the clouds, it is impossible to duplicate this exactly, with a rinse hose.
On this tile roof cleaning near Tampa, we had to stop because we got a passing thundershower. I kind of like cleaning a wet roof, especially in the Summertime.
The rain cools the roof down, so the cleaning chemical does not evaporate when it is applied, and because the roof is pre wet from the rain, it is almost impossible to miss a spot
Here are the before and after photos of that tile roof near Tampa I am taking about. It came out great.
Great Job Brother!!!

Thanks Mike, how is the roof cleaning business over in Hawaii doing ?
It is the summertime here in Tampa, and the roof cleaning business slows down here, this time of the year. We are always busy of course, but things are a lot more manageable now.
For instance, last week we were able to complete an "emergency roof cleaning" for a nice customer, who was just about to get a Lien placed on his home by a Tampa Homeowners Association!
You see Mike, he got a "clean your roof or else" letter from his HOA nearly one year ago, and decided to defy them. We were able to save him from legal action because it slows down here in Tampa, in the summer.
If we were in what is called our "Season", no way could we have cleaned his roof in time before the association took legal action.
Here are some before and after pictures of that roof we cleaned for him. He had quite a large amount of landscaping that we had to protect from the roof cleaning chemicals.
He was truly amazed at the difference, and told us if he knew he would see this amount of difference, he would have had his shingle roof cleaned as soon as he got the letter from his Tampa Homeowners Association.

Here in the Tampa Florida area, most nice subdivisions are deed restricted, and require you to maintain your homes paint, yard, and the roof as well.
If you move into one of Tampa's Deed Restricted communities, you sign your life away, and agree to give them great power over you. If you receive and defy 3 roof cleaning letters, they will start a legal process against you. Some customers think they are "cool" by refusing to clean their roofs, but us roof cleaners all know that the black stains on their dirty roofs can and will spread to the neighbors clean roofs!
It is unfair and inconsiderate to your neighbors to allow your roof to remain filthy, while they are trying to keep their place clean.
I have little sympathy for people who chose to compromise their friends and neighbors, by refusing to clean their roofs.
We are almost always super busy, so it is not the extra roof cleaning work we need.
But when people move into a super nice deed restricted community here in Tampa, and know the rules and promise to abide by them, but then don't, IMHO this is like sending a sick child to school to infect the other Kids.
All it takes is one filthy roof, to spread it's filth to the other roofs in the area by airborne spores, and other means of transmission.
I agree 100% with you Chris. It's unfortunately that we need associations to keep people of neglecting their homes but it's a fact of life.

I am a Ham Radio Operator, and need a big tower for all my Antennas, so I could never live in a Deed Restricted Community with a Homeowners Association. Plus, I can't stand anyone (except a customer) telling me what to do, and how to do it.
Here in the Tampa Florida area, I would say about 60 percent of the really nice places to live are deed restricted. Some areas have very vigilant homeowners associations, that will send out roof cleaning letters for one little black streak on the roof, and some of these HOA's will wait years to send letters. I have been asked by several Tampa Homeowners Associations, when is the right time to send roof cleaning letters.
The best time, is when 1/2 or more of the roofs are covered in this Black Roof Algae.
As you know Dave, it is never good to do a partial roof cleaning, but we do give our customers a break when only 1/4 to 1/2 of the roof needs cleaned. But, we do it the correct way, and clean the dirty part of the roof, then apply the treatment chemical to the "clean" part.
The worst thing these Tampa Homeowners Association can do to their residents, is to wait until every roof is absolutely filthy before asking the residents to clean them. This forces us roof cleaners to use tons of chemical solution to get them clean, and increases the chances of having an effect on the landscaping. Having Gutters down here in Tampa is not the normal thing it is up north. 1/2 or more of our business is cleaning tile roofs on 5000 plus sq ft homes with little to no gutters on them, and tons of delicate expensive landscaping!
When the Homeowners Associations allow these roofs to become filthy before letters are sent out, we often are forced to use 2 to 3 or more coats of the cleaning chemical.
This is a cement tile roof we cleaned in the Cory Lake Isles community in New Tampa. You can see it was filthy, and had no gutters. There was landscaping all over the place, and it took 3 coats of the roof cleaning chemical to get it this clean.
