Commercial Roof Cleaning Valrico FL 33594

Here are some pictures of the Savanna Landings Townhouse/Condominium Community my men are currently cleaning.
Basically, there are 3 types of buildings, some 4 unit, some 5 unit, and a few 6 units under each roof.
As can be seen, some of the roofs are absolutely filthy, with an honest inch of black roof algae on them.
There are no gutters, plants.hedges galore, and fussy, older, retired people with nothing better to do then to try and tell us what to do!

As many of you guys know, we do not usually chase commercial roof cleaning jobs, since we are such an established residential roof cleaning contractor.
However, my Son Jamie is changing that, and somehow these big Commercial Roof Cleaning jobs sometimes just find us.

As some of you know, I have been a Ham Radio Operator for over 25 years (My Ham Radio FCC Callsign is Ka7niq).
The man who got us to bid this job is a fellow Ham!
Us Hams are cheap lol, he wanted a deal, and we wanted Commercial Roof Cleaning work in Valrico FL 33594, so we both got what we wanted.
Valrico is right next to our home town of Brandon Florida.
This job is actually in a community called Bloomingdale.
One of our "favorite local competitors" lives right close by
This Commercial Roof Cleaning Job in Valrico FL is right under his Nose
Oh, BTW, there are 33 of these buildings, with an average of 4 units in each.
So, if you take into consideration that each unit has driveways, screen rooms, windows, soffits and fascias needing cleaning, you can see my men are picking up some considerable extra money, for themselves, on this Commercial Roof Cleaning job here in Valrico, FL
Here are the first before and after Commercial Roof Cleaning Valrico FL Pictures.
Oh, forgot to add that we are using the New Amonyx LO Chlorine Stable Surfactant from Pressure Washer Products on all these roofs.
It greatly aids cleaning and stickability on the steep roof slopes, and also makes windows a breeze to clean w/o spotting!
The residents LOVE all the suds coming off the roofs from the Amonyx LO Surfactant after the rains, and we tell them the truth, that our roof cleaning solution "keeps on cleaning" after we are gone.
Our guys are averaging only 2 to 3 buildings a day, going real slow because roofs are filthy, slipppery, and steep, with TONS of plants and hedges that must be protected!
No way can we clean on some of the real windy days we have had lately(2-1 2010), so we stop cleaning the roofs, and switch to the exterior cleaning, until weather conditions are favorable for roof cleaning again.
Since there are TONS of plants, and no gutters, with absolutely filthy, steep roofs, we MUST have warm, sunny days to maximize the cleaning effectiveness of our intentionally weak, roof cleaning chemical solution.
We are having to hit the roofs a couple of times for complete cleaning with this weak, roof cleaning solution, enhanched by the Chlorine Stable Amonyx LO Surfactant.
The alternative is to use a strong roof cleaning solution that cleans on the first pass, but will toast the plants!

I bid this Commercial Roof Cleaning job cheap, to be completely honest, to KEEP my men working( we are running 2 roof cleaning trucks, again).
As an added bonus, they decided to clean ALL the driveways, that are postage stamp size.
I let my men make a cash deal with the residents, and keep the driveway money(after they pay me back for chemicals used).
My guys are picking up considerable side work in there, and that is OK by me.
I want my men happy, they have familys to feed to!
I will be adding some more Commercial Roof Cleaning Valrico FL 33594 before and after pics as I get them.

Can you explain what's the difference between bidding residential and large commercial jobs?

what made you stick on the residential jobs for so long? and why are you moving to commercial jobs now?

Well, it is a personal decision of mine to choose residential roof cleaning vs commercial.
Here is why - On residential roof cleaning, you deal directly with the homeowner.
You get to see the big smile on his face when you make his home look beautiful again.
On some commercial roof cleaning jobs, you often deal with Property Managers.
Often times these Property Managers never even look at your beautiful work!
This Valrico Roof Cleaning was different.
The people we deal with actually live in these Valrico, FL Condos.
They wanted a good roof cleaning company to do the job right, and they got one biggrin

Here are some more pictures of the Valrico FL roof cleaning we did in these condos.
It was summer time here in Valrico Florida, and that meant rain nearly afternoon, so we had to clean these roofs around the weather. The residents were very nice to our roof cleaners, and some made us Ice Tea, even fed us. Our roof cleaners made some extra pocket money doing cleaning favors for the residents. One elderly lady wanted some mildew removed from her eaves, and we cleaned them for her at no extra charge. The property managers of this condo  community in Valrico were so impressed with the cleaning of these roofs they have allowed us to bid on several other commercial roof cleaning projects.
