Pressure cleaning a flat cement tile, ceramic tile, or barrel tile roof, will often break or damage your tiles.
Pressure washing a tile roof requires walking all over it.
If all that walking around doesn't bust up your roof tiles, the high pressure certainly can.

Just try and get an inexpensive Tampa Roofing Contractor to replace roof tile, and/or do leak repair to the underlying roofing membrane !

Try this test, stand on a ladder with a pressure cleaning wand in hand and pull the trigger.
The high pressure can knock you right off the ladder!
Imagine what that harmful pressure washing is doing to your tiles, and/or your roof membrane ?

The surface cleaning devices used by some Tampa Pressure Washing company's aren't any better.
They were designed for pressure cleaning parking lots and driveways.
They are just a pressure washing contraption with their own set of problems.
They are designed to "ride on air" on a flat surface.
A barrel tile roof is not a flat surface, and as the surface cleaner passes over the tiles, it can easily smack into the edges of them like a sledgehammer, causing breakage.

These surface cleaners also have angled high pressure cleaning nozzles, attacking your tile roof in a whole new fashion.
The angled high pressure washing nozzles spray a stream of high pressure water right against the edges of your tiles.
This causes the tile to buckle and move as it is forced up by the high pressure stream of water.
Not only can this cause the tile to come loose, this can crack them from the bottom.
These sharp, newly broken pieces of tile can be driven right into your tile roof membrane by the high pressure washing.
We have seen tile roof membranes ripped apart, and bad roof leaks caused by this crude method of cleaning.
These pressure washing contraptions are well known for causing roof leaks and broken tiles.
Ask your local Tampa Roofing Contractor !

OTHER TAMPA TILE ROOF CLEANING DANGERS.. THIS COULD HAPPEN TO YOU !

Read the article below from Tampa Florida area newspaper, and see what happened to some unsuspecting consumers who hired the wrong Tampa Tile Roof Cleaning Company.

" TAMPA - A container with an acid residue exploded Friday morning in New Tampa, severely burning a 36-year-old man.

Investigators say Kenneth Toledo, a Tampa man who owns a pressure washing business, poured chlorine and water into the container, which had previously been used to apply an acid wash. The container had not been properly rinsed, and the resulting chemical reaction caused the explosion, officials said.

The container exploded as Toledo scaled a ladder to clean the tile roof of a Hunter's Green home in the 17800 block of Osprey Point Place, pelting Toledo with chemicals and shrapnel. He was airlifted to Tampa General Hospital. His condition was unknown Friday.
The explosion also blew a 2-foot-wide hole in the roof. Tile was scattered about the driveway. "

GIVE YOUR TILE ROOF A BREAK !

Flat and barrel tile roof repairs are not inexpensive.
Some tiles aren't even made anymore.
There is a better way, a safer, longer lasting way to clean your tile roof.

The Exclusive Apple Tri-Chem Tile Roof Cleaning System doesn't require us to walk all over every single tile on your roof like pressure washing does.

Our advanced tile roof cleaning chemicals kill and remove the algae, clean your roof, and our exclusive time released mildew inhibitor keeps protecting the roof tiles, long after we have gone.

The Exclusive Apple Tri-Chem Tile Roof Cleaning System was developed for Apple Tile Roof Cleaning Tampa by a chemical engineer at the University of Florida, with input from a roof tile manufacturer.

We don't use mortar or glaze removing muriatic acid on your roof, or just spray Chlorine on it either.
Strong Chlorine and Sodium Hydroxide solutions have been known to actually strip the glaze from your tiles.


FAQ'S - WHAT IS THE TRI-CHEM TILE ROOF CLEANING SYSTEM ? WHY IS IT BETTER ?

Instead of relying on one strong caustic chemical to do the tile roof cleaning, we use 3 chemicals mixed in a calculated fashion.
The synergistic combination of these 3 tile roof cleaning chemicals allows us to use a much safer, more effective solution

A Turbocharger "tricks" a small engine into making the power of a larger one, while retaining the good fuel economy of a small motor.
Our Tri-Chem system "tricks" our tile roof cleaning solution into acting like it is much stronger than it actually is, for maximum tile roof cleaning, with minimum effect on the environment !

We didn't do our "roof cleaning homework", we had a chemical engineer do it for us !

The Apple Tri-Chem Tile Roof Cleaning System is light years ahead of any other tile roof cleaning system, bar none!
And it is ONLY available from Apple Tile Roof Cleaning of Tampa, Florida.

Yes, you can get cheaper Tile Roof Cleaning, but if saving a few dollars is more important to you then preserving the beauty and integrity of your beautiful roof tiles, keep shopping.

Its your beautiful tile roof, you want it cleaned, but you don't want it ruined.
You want us!

Clyde, Tile Roofs in Tampa are evaluated on an individual basis.
It is true that some tile roofs can not be walked on w/o breaking the tiles.
For these tile roof cleanings, we either shoot them from a ladder, or use a Man Lift.
All our tile roof cleaners are small people, under 160 lbs.
Tampa has some older subdivisions like Apollo Beach.
The tile roofs in Apollo Beach are 40 to 50 years old, some of them.
These tile roofs are extremely brittle, and can not be walked on.
We clean them from a ladder, or use a lift.
If there is any doubt, shoot the tile roof from a ladder, or use a lift.
After many years of tile roof cleaning experience in Tampa, we just "know" what tile roofs can, or can not be walked on safely, w/o breaking our tile roof cleaning customers tiles!

Hello Gary, hope you had a nice holiday season ?
It has been cold here in Tampa, way too cold lately to clean tile roofs!
That Logo is not an "official" RCIA Logo, LOL
We had a vote years ago of the RCIA membership, and they chose the current logo displayed at the top of the roof cleaning forum as the official Logo of the RCIA.
However, I like this logo, and another one that did not win the Official Roof Cleaning Logo competition.
I feel these other Logo's fit my color scheme better, so I sometimes use them.
Personally, I really liked the roof over america design.
It is OK to use any Logo of the RCIA YOU like Gary, on your roof cleaning website, or internet pages.
We at the RCIA are simply trying to communicate to our Tile Roof  Cleaning customers that RCIA Certified Shingle and Tile Roof Cleaners know what we are doing!

Yes, a tile roof is more expensive.
One reason tile roofs are common here in Tampa FL is they are more wind resistant.
Tile Roofs will not blow off a home as easily as shingle roofs will.'
Thus, many homes in Tampa have tile roofs, and they need cleaned more often then shingle roofs do.
Plus, a clean tile roof is very pretty IMHO, compared to a asphalt shingle roof.
