No New Posts   Tampa Palms Flat Tile Roof Cleaning 11-6-2014

November 10, 2014

Here is another flat tile roof we cleaned last week up in Tampa Palms 33647

This job had a ton of landscaping and mature hedges around it, so we had to work slowly and carefully, to protect the plants.

This flat tile roof has what are called the glazed ceramic tiles that are very showy and nice looking, when they are clean. But, because of their reddish/orange color, the black algae on them sticks out like a sore thumb cry

This customer did not get a roof cleaning notice from the Tampa Palms Homeowners Association, but he wanted to be pro active, and get his roof washed, before the HOA sent him a notice.

The before and after pictures are in the thumbnails below, and if you click on them, they will expand. They are quite large however, because they were the first roof cleaning pictures we took with a new digital camera we just purchased.

You will see some green mildew we intentionally left behind on his house, but not on his roof! The reason we left the green mildew is because he plans to get his house painted very soon. Any good painting company will automatically include cleaning the house in the cost of the paint job. 

Though we offered to clean the small area of green mildew on his home for free, he declined.

 

No New Posts   Stone Coated Steel Roof Cleaning Tampa Florida

August 8, 2015

You have to know what you are doing, to clean a stone coated steel roof. They can be easily damaged by crude roof cleaning methods like Pressure Washing, and/or improper cleaning chemicals. We actually helped Gerard Roofing Technologies Florida write the cleaning standards for these types of metal roofs.

This stone coated steel roof we just cleaned here in Tampa is what is called a Decra Roof. As you can see by the pictures, this home is located right on a Lake, and the high humidity of this homes lakefront location caused the growth of the black algae, and green mildew on it.

It has been raining here in Tampa Florida for nearly 25 days straight, and we had to get up really early on this Saturday morning 8-8 2015 to get this roof cleaned.

It rained so hard exactly 5 minutes after we finished, that we had to run for our truck, then wait nearly 1/2 an hour to get paid. Many parts of Tampa are flooded, and we had to drive our cleaning truck through a couple of serious puddles of water, to get to this job today.

If you have any type of stone coated steel roof you need cleaned the right way, give us a call at 813-655-8777

No New Posts   Cleaning A Metal Roof Near Tampa Florida

July 12, 2014

Here is a metal roof near Tampa we just cleaned this past week 7-6 2014 . She was not a repeat customer, but the roof cleaners she hired a few years ago damaged all her plants in the front of the house.  As you can see, we took the time it takes to properly protect these types of plants.

We clean all types of roofs, shingle, tile, and even metal roofs like this one. Call us at 813-655-8777 for a free estimate on all your roof cleaning needs.

No New Posts   Repeat Tampa Roof Cleaning Customer

May 23, 2014

Here is a roof in Tampa we just cleaned today 5-23-2014. These folks are repeat customers of ours who used our service nearly 5 years ago. As you can see, they have a lot of trees around, that makes their roof get dirty looking faster then folks who's roofs are out in the open. Our guys trimmed a few tree branches that were much too close to the roof for peace of mind. 

Our customers just bought a 1500.00 BBQ called a Big Green Egg, and they both work for Tampa Electric. They are having a Memorial Day Party, and invited us! They said to being some business cards, because our work speaks for itself. I may go to their BBQ Party, but not to solicit any more roof cleaning work, that's for sure! Currently, we are booked up for 2 weeks solid. 

photo 1 (1).JPGphoto 2 (1).JPGphoto 3 (1).JPGphoto 4 (1).JPG

Thank God it is a 4 day weekend, and Memorial Day is Monday! It has been in the mid 90's here in the Tampa Florida area all this week, with no rain in sight. If it is 95 degrees outside, it is well over 100 degrees when we are up cleaning these roofs! Our guys work hard, and need a little break. 

No New Posts   Avila Roof Cleaning - Tampa FL

May 27, 2014

We were cleaning another roof in Avila, north of Tampa, when this customer saw our truck, and asked us for a free estimate to clean his tile roof. He is an ex Tampa Bay Buccaneer Football Player! Since we were already there in Avila, and done with our scheduled job, we gave him a quote, and he told us to get it done, so we did.

Here are the pictures of his beautiful Avila home, before and after the tile roof cleaning. My Son James Tucker and I are big time Tampa football fans, and he even got an autograph from this happy Avila Tile Roof Cleaning customer.

No New Posts   Cleaning A Roof On Tampa Bay FL

May 15, 2014

Here are some before and after pictures of us cleaning this roof that was right on Tampa Bay in Apollo Beach,Florida.

The view from the top of this roof was just awesome, and we could see all the way across the Bay to downtown Tampa! 

Our customer just bought this waterfront home, and wanted to get his roof cleaned before the painting of his house. 

He hasn't seen his clean roof yet, since he lives up in Montreal, and will not be flying down to Tampa until this weekend.

We completed this job on 5-15-2014, and like all jobs we do, it came out beautifully.

No New Posts   Cleaning Asphalt Shingle Roof In Tampa, FL

May 15, 2014

IMG_0016.JPGIMG_0031.JPGIMG_0017.JPGIMG_0018.JPGIMG_0021.JPGThis makes the second time we have cleaned this shingle roof for this Tampa Florida area customer. These nice folks live in a part of Tampa that has deed restrictions, and a very active homeowners association. They received a letter demanding they get their roof cleaned again, so they called us. We did their roof nearly 6 years ago, so they were pleased that our work lasted so long.

The past 3 years here in the Tampa area, we have had normal rainfall, and that feeds the roof mold (algae). As a result, we have been very very busy lately cleaning roofs, both tile and shingle. Here are the before and after pictures, and as you can see, this job came out beautifully.

 

No New Posts   Cleaning black streaks on roof

March 6, 2014

The black streaks on your tampa roof are an algae called gloeocapsa magma. This Cynobacteria is transported by airborne spores. Once attached to the roof it begins to feed on the limestone found in your shingles. If left untreated it will continue to grow and spread until the roof eventually becomes black.

This fungus will cause your roof in tampa to deteriorate prematurely and it can raise your utility bill. You should never pressure wash a roof, it will shorten the life span of your roof and cause more damage as well. Apple Roof Cleaning Tampa uses a low pressure spray application to remove the algae safely, without damaging your roof or surrounding vegetation.

This happy Tampa customer thought that it was time to replace the roof, because of black streaks.

 

 

No New Posts   Roof Cleaned In Lake Jovita Florida

January 20, 2014

lake jovita tile roof cleaning.jpgtile roof cleaned lake jovita.jpg

This job came out really nice, and was just completed 1-20-2014 on MLK Day.

This was a bare concrete barrel tile roof. The after pictures do not do it justice! It takes up to one month for our chemical to really whiten up the concrete tiles, but as you can see, all the black stuff that brought the letter from the homeowners association is gone.

In a month, the tiles on this roof will be so bright and white looking, you will almost need sunglasses to look at them!

We have done quite a few roof cleaning jobs up in Lake Jovita, since we are only 1/2 an hour away in Brandon, and an easy drive up I-75

This was the second time we have cleaned this roof, and we actually did another job up there as well, but the guys forgot to take the pictures!

If you live in Lake Jovita, and want to have your roof cleaned the right way, please call us at 813-655-8777

Though we are from the Tampa area, Lake Jovita is in our roof cleaning service area.
All the roofs we do, shingle, metal, or tile,  are always cleaned chemically, and we never use any pressure washing. 

No New Posts   Tampa Roof Maintenance Program

December 18, 2013

 GUARDIAN ROOF MAINTENANCE PROGRAM 

RCIA-logo.jpg

Why clean your asphalt/fiberglass shingles if you don't have to? Apple Roof Cleaning Tampa knows that if your shingle roof is brand new or has just been cleaned, there's no need to wait for fungus stains to appear and take away from the beauty of your home. 

On new roofs, either fungus resistant or not, it's just a matter of time before fungus starts to stain shingles, because the environment here in Tampa Florida provides perfect conditions for the rampant proliferation of air-born fungus. The spores land on all surfaces; on your shingle or tile roof they settle, colonize and eventually can cover the entire area with ugly black roof stains. It's at this point that homeowners in Tampa are forced to hire someone, like us, to clean their roofs. This can be a very messy job, and, although our RCIA Certified roof cleaning process is  the safest way to remove the stains, we don't advise cleaning your roof more than once. Wouldn't it make sense to by-pass the cleaning process by servicing your roof, like you service your car, with regular maintenance treatments? 

THE GUARDIAN ROOF MAINTENANCE PROGRAM, as applied by Apple Roof Cleaning Tampa. prevents the growth of fungus on new roofs, and the return of stains on newly-cleaned roofs forever, GUARANTEED!

Contact Apple Roof Cleaning Tampa 813-655-8777 today for a no obligation estimate!

 

No New Posts   Black Stains On Roof Tampa FL

December 19, 2013

A dark stained roof in Tampa is ugly, and detracts from the beauty of your home. Your electric bills in Tampa are higher because of hotter under roof temperatures. Heat increases the roofs expansion and contraction which dramatically reduces its life; and fungus spores growing on your roof in Tampa can possibly contribute to the risk of the "Sick Building Syndrome" (a condition caused by increased levels of algae, mold, and fungus growing in the duct systems of buildings).

People in Tampa who spend time inside a contaminated building begin to complain about allergic reactions, respiratory problems, and headaches. Experts say that the best way to combat this condition is to keep mold and algae spores away from both the inside and outside of the dwelling. How much fungus is growing on your roof? And what can be done to prevent it from ruining your shingles?

Fungus spores require three things to grow: nutrients, moisture, and sunlight (all of which are abundant in Tampa Florida). The type of fungus that grows on an "Asphalt Fiberglass Shingle" is a living specialized plant, that feeds on and destroys your roof! Even the so-called "Fungus Resistant Shingles" are not fungus-proof, here in Tampa.

Soft Washing Roof Cleaning in Tampa – What it IS and What it is NOT

 

cleaning roof-001.jpg

 

Soft Wash Roof Cleaning. It seems to be the NEW Roof and Exterior Cleaning BUZZWORD in some parts of the country these days.

But before you get all excited, thinking you have found "something new", please realize it’s merely another term for the safe, non pressure, RCIA Certified Roof Cleaning we have provided the Tampa Florida area, with for over 20 years.

RCIA-logo.jpg

Simply, Soft Washing means to clean any exterior surface by using a much lower, gentler amount of pressure than traditionally would be associated with a high pressure, power washing company.

In the new millennia however, procedures and methods are changing. There are many reasons for this. Some of these OLD METHODS and routines and chemicals are being reviewed as to their effectiveness and ultimate safety; other methods are now outdated for the surfaces being cleaned, and still others reasons are that new chemical cleaning agent formulations have been developed in recent years that were not available when the pressure cleaning industry first evolved. Still other reasons include change for the sake of liability to the contractor in Tampa cleaning those surfaces and finally, for the sake of the customer getting the best, most effective, safe, “Bang for their hard earned dollar”.

Today, most of the exterior cleaning services performed by today’s experienced professional power washers and non pressure roof cleaners here in Tampa, would fall under the soft washing category.

The reasoning is that old habits and ways of traditional thinking that the term pressure washing are still so widely used in the residential and commercial segments of the markets and  has more to do with its industry term recognition than anything else. Frankly, old habits and old mindsets die hard. My personal definition of the term soft washing is to clean an exterior using 50-to-400 pounds per square inch (psi) or less.

Less Pressure = Less Chance for Damage

Our Motto is to “LET THE SOFT WASH CLEANING AGENTS, NOT THE PRESSURE, DO THE DIRTY WORK”

Different surfaces here in Tampa require different levels or amounts of “soft washing” techniques and pressure. For example, the proper way the clean a roof is to use low, or what many refer to as “non pressure roof cleaning”. Well, if water is coming out of the hose, or wand, there is OBVIOUSLY some pressure, but the non pressure terminology is used more to stress the point (common sense) that the surface is receiving almost no agitated disruption that could damage the surface of the shingle or remove important UV granules from the asphalt shingle surface during the soft wash or non pressure roof cleaning process. In Actuality, this is still technically classified as soft washing.

As mentioned previously, today’s pressure washing markets are evolving, and so just about anybody who does this type of work on a professional level and has the skills, equipment, and know how, will be cleaning most surfaces using a soft washing method or approach.

There are, however, exceptions to the rule, where using a bit more pressure is acceptable. Mainly these exceptions or occurrences are limited to brickwork, masonry or concrete type surfaces, but even then the pressure is just part of the equation; the soft wash cleaning agents or “chemicals” are the real story.

The evolution of pressure or power washing in Tampa to the modern standard today of Soft washing is all possible via the extraordinary power of today’s advanced chemistry.

Now, in this day and age, there are many high quality, cost effective, cleaning compounds that are available to aid the commercial soft washing contractor in Tampa in cleaning just about any roof or exterior surface. A true, modern, educated, quality exterior cleaning professional in the pressure washing or roof cleaning trades in Tampa, will have a good working knowledge  and an arsenal of many different kinds of roof and exterior cleaning solutions and ways and particular methods to safely and effectively use them in the soft washing process in a multitude of environments and circumstances.

Word of Caution; If you are a homeowner here in Tampa, and you do hire someone to clean an exterior surface around your house or business and they do not plan to use any cleaning solution to aid in the cleaning process, this a sure fire sign that you may be hiring someone that is either very inexperienced and hasn’t learned how to soft wash roof and exterior surfaces correctly, or possibly someone that simply doesn’t care to learn and educate themselves on the current standards of how to clean things correctly, using the most modern, effective and safe methods. Personally, we at Apple Roof Cleaning Of Tampa are always willing to recommend another qualified pressure washing, power washing and non pressure roof cleaning, or soft washing contractors to customers that are out of our Tampa Florida service area.

No New Posts   Safe Roof Algae Removal Tampa

December 9, 2013

Algae have been around since the dawn of time.

steep roof cleaning tampa florida (2).jpg

 

Generally, the Species of Algae found on rooftops in Tampa today is  a normal part of the ecosystem and our earth’s environment.

Yet, in the scope of things, when deposited on the surface of a clay barrel tile roof or an asphalt shingle roof,  algae is absolutely not doing residential and commercial property owners here in Tampa any real good, and in fact is causing both an ugly eyesore and, a potentially damaging situation to grow, that can lead to premature roofing shingle failure and/or replacement.

 Today, many properties in Tampa with otherwise nicely landscaped, well-maintained yards and freshly painted home or business exteriors, suffer visually from the discolored, staining and streaking of roof algae, lowering property values in both more costly and median valued homes across Florida, and abroad.

This unattractive GROWING occurrence on the ROOFTOPS of property structures such as homes, business, churches, and other structures around our communities, give our towns and cities, and undesirable, rundown overall look, with many homeowners associations making it a REQUIREMENT to have residents of the communities annually clean and or treat their roofs for discoloration, mildew, mold, lichen, and moss, or face fines and letters of complaint from their neighbors.

Roof Cleaning in Tampa Florida

As the information gets out to more and more property owners in Tampa that understand that this is actually an invasion or infestation of this offending roof algae that ACTUALLY “Roof Hops” and if one house in a community has this algae left on the roof it will eventually spread back to the other local area homes sooner, rather than later, homeowners are taking the position to perform preventative maintenance now, rather than pay for costly and unnecessary premature roof tear off replacement.

As the knowledge spreads by the internet and word of mouth, that the fact is that if all residents in the area take this problem seriously and clean, treat, and prevent this problem as a normal matter of course by INCLUDING roof algae treatment and maintenance in their normal annual or bi annual property maintenance regimen, this problem can be largely reduced and potentially avoided by the drastic reduction of house to house, rooftop to rooftop algae infestation. 

This blue-green cyanobacteria, technically called, Gloeocapsa Magma, is a miniature plant with an aggressive root system that deposits itself on rooftops of homes and businesses in Tampa, feeding on the limestone filler used in the manufacturing process of the asphalt shingles.

This algae is not only unattractive but also is also dangerous from a slip and fall standpoint to walk on when servicing your roof while annually removing leaves, pine straw and other roof debris during routine fall and spring maintenance cleaning.

Additionally, if the algae is not cleaned using safe, non pressure RCIA Roof Cleaning Institute methods following ARMA standards, then, it will gain a rapid foothold with its root system becoming embedded into the important roofing granules that normally provide essential Ultraviolet protection from the harsh and damaging, shingle drying rays of the sun, and soon will spread to other parts of the roof, eventually covering the roof entirely.

One final additional very important reason to develop and maintain an annual roof maintenance program, besides the obvious reasons of additional longevity and increased curb appeal is the fact that this form of algae “blooms” periodically, much like a flower, and sends millions of microscopic spores, airborne that then attach themselves to other nearby structures such as barns, detached garages and neighboring rooftops in Tampa!

This is a major reason for communities here in the Tampa area to join together and perform “annual roof treatment days” to have all the roofs in the area treated to repel algae and mold and etc.

This way the entire neighborhoods roofs get clean initially, and stay clean continually.

As a homeowner in the Tampa area myself, it certainly disturbs me that, despite all the countless hours of labor for maintaining the grounds and exterior of the structures on our properties and large sums of money most homeowners and businesses invest in to beautify and add character and unique value to their properties, the addition of staining and algae and dark streaking and discoloration of the roof surfaces due to algae, mold, mildew and other roof dwelling plants turn an otherwise visually well-kept property in Tampa, into a less than attractive, rundown looking structure.

This occurrence is very unfortunate for a residential or commercial property owner who is working so hard to get their property to “POP” and stand out above the other average looking homes in their neighborhood.  Yet despite all their money and energy put into paint and landscape, the black algae infestation on their rooftop ROBS them of the final desirable curb appeal they invest in, and deserve to receive.

Mainly, this is because many property owners don’t know that their roof can be restored to a new looking condition without damage to their roof and as easily as picking up the phone and calling a CERTIFIED Non Pressure SAFE Roof Cleaning Contractor locally.

No New Posts   Keeping Cat's Off Of Shingle Roofs in Tampa

November 11, 2013

A customer posted this question on one of my roof cleaning blogs. She wanted to know the best way to keep a Cat off a Shingle Roof!

Now, here in Tampa, many roofs are tile or metal, and they get hot as hell. Lol, Cat's soon learn not to get on a tile or a metal roof here in Tampa! 

But, shingle roofs are open season for Cat's it seems.

Cat's can be in great danger on a roof, especially if the house get's on Fire, like this home here in Tampa did http://www.abcactionnews.com/dpp/news/region_hillsborough/tampa-firefighters-rescued-three-cats-and-a-7-foot-boa-constrictor-from-house-fire

 

Here is the question that was posted on my roof cleaning blog:

 

I have an elderly neighbor that leaves his door open at night for his beloved cat. I know that his cat is a handful, his drapes are shredded!


The problem is the cat climbs on my roof at night. My roof is flat and it is noisy and wakes me up. I then have a hard time going back to sleep.

Cat On Tampa Roof

I tried the gallon water jugs in the yard. I do get up and try to hose the cat, but he has caught on to me.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

No New Posts   Commercial Roof Cleaning Tampa FL

October 6, 2013

Here is a small commercial roof cleaning we did last week in the Ybor City section of Tampa. As a rule, we do not do a lot of commercial roof cleaning jobs, but this office building belongs to a well known Tampa Attorney, who insisted on us. He lives up in Tampa Palms, and we have cleaned the tile roof of his personal home several times, in the last 10 years.

The before and after the roof cleaning pictures were taken as soon as this job was completed on 10-1-2013, and do not reflect how this shingle roof will look, after a few rains have had the chance to reactivate all the special soaps we used on this light colored shingle roof.

After my Son and his crew completed this job, they went into Ybor City, and brought me back some Spanish Bean Soup, and a really good Cuban Sandwich!

These roof cleaning pictures are fairly large, so click on the thumbnails, if you would like to see them better,

 

No New Posts   Roof Cleaning And Rain In Tampa 9-23-2013

September 27, 2013

It has been raining here in the Tampa Bay Florida area nearly all week. In fact, this, and the past summer, have been 2 of the rainiest summers most people can remember, besides the tropical storms and Hurricanes, here in Tampa.

We can not, and will not, clean any roof, shingle or tile, in the rain, no matter how backed up we are. 

That black stuff seen on tile and shingle roofs here in the Tampa Florida area can be thought of as a plant.  And, just like any plant, the more water it gets, the better and faster it grows.

In fact, the rains of the summer before this one, are very much responsible for our roof cleaning company being so busy!

However, we run 2 full time roof cleaning trucks, 5 days a week, so we are catching up with our jobs, that the rainy weather has prevented us from cleaning.

The Season is nearly here in Tampa, and soon the winter residents will arrive. If you are thinking about having your roof cleaned, now is the time to call us at 813-655-8777 to get on our list of work to do.

No New Posts   Tile Roof Cleaners Tampa Florida

September 20, 2013

We have cleaned a lot of tile roofs, in the 20 years we have been in business in the Tampa area. It is much more difficult to do a barrel or flat tile roof, then it is to wash asphalt shingles. First, you must be careful not to break or crack the roof tiles, and you must also be very careful that you do not slip, and fall right off a tile roof.

Unlike a shingle roof, the tiles become very slippery when the soaps are being applied. Tiles also have edges, or faces, and care must be taken to be sure they are cleaned as well. 

Here are just a few we have cleaned over the years. Call us at (813)-655-8777 if you need our roof cleaning service.

We have been cleaning both barrel tile, shingle, and metal roofs here in the greater Tampa Florida area nearly 20 years.

In that time, our company has cleaned over 20,000 roofs!

I have taken plenty of roof cleaning pictures, over the years, and lost a bunch in computer crashes too!@

Here is a little slideshow I threw together on a rainy day last summer. http://www.bucschat.com/gallery/slideshow/album-2/

No New Posts   Shingle Roof Cleaned In Tampa

August 28, 2013

Here is one we cleaned with an asphalt shingle roof in Tampa last week, in between the rain.

It has been raining here in Florida quite a bit this summer. I like a wet shingle roof, as long as the water is not dripping off of it. It seems the rain really activates the soaps, and makes for a really nice finished product. Plus, with the rain, we can be sure the plants are not thirsty, and the ground is not dry.

Dry ground and thirsty plants are not a good thing for a Florida Roof Cleaner.

This job came out great, and our customer was very happy. But I lost some of the before and after pictures. A real shame, because this was a very nice job! 

His neighbor had his shingle roof cleaned by a Tampa Pressure Washer, who ruined it.  I wish I had taken some pictures of the Zebra Stripes in his neighbors shingle.roof, as well as all the missing granules removed from his shingles by the Pressure Washer.

OH, I forgot to add we also chemically cleaned the driveway, in the middle picture.
