This is how I clean roofs, not by blasting them with a power washing machine!

TO WATCH 130 MORE VIDEOS OF ME WORKING GO TO WWW.YOUTUBE.COM AND SEARCH BERGMAN ROOF CLEANING 

What you see in the above videos, is all that is done to clean roofs 100%.

A pressure washing machine is never started up during the cleaning process and never should be.

If anyone claims they are cleaning in this same manner = "Non-Pressure" "Soft Washing" "No Pressure" Chemical Cleaning" Ask them when they bid your job, if a pressure washing machine will be started up during the process for any reason.

If they say "Yes, but we turn the pressure way down" or "Yes, but just for rinsing" or "Yes, but we use a surface cleaning machine"

THESE ARE COMMON, WELL KNOWN IN THE INDUSTRY, INTENTIONAL MISDIRECTIONS. THEY WILL IN FACT SIMPLY PRESSURE WASH YOUR ROOF!

That's the "trick of their trade" No matter what chemicals, green claims, water only or otherwise, in the end, a power washing machine does the actual roof cleaning and leaves it's inevitable damage, spreading the living algae spores everywhere under the roofing and around the property, as it's blown over the roof edges and up underneath!

If they say the pressure is turned down, how will you know? On a shingled roof even 200 psi will blow a large amount of granules off and still blow living algae all over!


Soft Washing is a simple 1 part, self cleaning application of roofing manufacturer specified cleaning agents, delivered to the roof with a 60 psi 12 volt pump. Pressure washing machines run 3000 to 4000 psi.

Even a cheap homeowner machine from a discount store etc will be 2500 psi.

Having been in business here over 25 years, has taught me that when it comes to *houses and pool cages etc* -

Just blasting with high pressure is not as good at cleaning surfaces as having a greater water flow, which I use. Plus, far less chance of damage-such as drawing lines in paint / wood siding, or stripping paint, or blowing cracked stucco off etc.

I only use high pressure, 3500 psi when I clean flat cement / concrete - driveways, sidewalks and parking lots, or want to strip paint, as a paint prep.

I live right here in Gulf Cove and have over 29 years in this business right here in Charlotte / Sarasota Counties. My son has worked with me for 22 years. My other worker has over 2 1/2 years of experience with me and 2 years with another company before mine.

If you hire a big business, (THERE ARE ONLY 2 I KNOW OF IN MY AREA OF CHALOTTE COUNTY) that will usually include those big companies having work crews, work crews involve employee turnover and you might get the guy they trained last week!

Be wise and stick with the manufacturers' instructions, as found here at RCIA for cleaning and use only roofing manufacturer specified cleaning chemicals - Bleach, soap and water. Plus only use that same manufacturers' specific Non-Pressure chemical application method on your roof!

Pressure Washing Your Roof Can Void The Manufacturer's Warranty + Damage it! Manufacturers say not to even use a brush on shingles because of granule loss!

At Chuck Bergman Roof Cleaning and Pressure Washing, clearly we do all types of pressure cleaning and have done so since 1989 here in Charlotte and Sarasota County.

We just don't pressure clean roofing, because it is the wrong way to do it. It causes too much wear and damage.

Thank You.

My son was hurt in an accident 11/11/14 and he just came back full time for me recently!

He tried some other avenues of related work, but, I'm happy to say, is back with me now!

Sure is good to have my son and my expert of 22 years back in full swing again!

Here's him doing a recent job- https://www.youtube.com/edit?o=U&video_id=f3NbotIFQ_Q

And me watering plants LOL

Chuck,

 

Sorry to hear things have been hard for you health wise.

This would be one great deal for someone starting out Chris said.

Good luck going forward. I am in Port St. Lucie right now for the winter. Wouldn't mind stopping down for a visit? Email me how to contact.

As a note. I am going to sell Sullivan Roof Cleaning myself. Time to retire. biggrin

Though hard to give up, it has been such a money maker for me.

My son is doing much better! In fact, he just started working for me again in Jan 2017

I have decided not to sell my business. What can I do that will make an average of $140.00 an hour, besides this?
