Pressure Washing is Green, a Green Monster. Pressure Washing will destroy a shingle roof quickly. When people are thinking about Cleaning Roofs in Tampa they know better then to allow a pressure cleaner anywhere near their roofs

How much is too much? Is a garden hose spray nozzle too much and if not what setting should it be on?

Could be, depending on how close to the surface you are

ok yeah I am going to try with a few old shingles and test the optimum distance. I have also seen using a 60 degree tip may be ok depending on roof age. Just a small amount of pressure may be ok. I have heard conflicting things but definitely don't want to damage anything.

Most of us professional roof cleaners use a non pressure system to apply the mix we use to the roofing surface. As far as rinsing, most of us let mother nature take care of that for us. Always you a ground man to rinse off any runoff from the roof and to water plants, grasses and the exterior of the building while applying the roof cleaning solution.

Great Point Tom
I think it is a combination of the lack of roof cleaning work, and failing to charge enough to get you through the slow times. Tampa Roof Cleaners like us are faced with an up and down local economy. It is slow right now for most everyone (except my brother) I talk to here in the Tampa area. The Pool Guys especially, all of them are crying the blues. Almost all of the roof cleaning jobs coming in lately are from past customers, and their roofs are mostly filthy. We just cleaned a flat cement tile roof up in Tampa Palms Tom that took a ton of TSP to whiten up.
There is some stuff called Chlorinated TSP Tom I plan to check out, it is very inexpensive, and used in beer brewing sterilization. It looks very promising.

Cool the chlorinated TSP sounds like a beast??

The economy has been a bear I have to agree. We are making changes and adapting ourselves. Our goal is to keep momma not working until the new baby is in Kindergarten. One year almost down, four to go then momma can go back to work and daddy can take it easy. We have survived now totally on one income from roof cleaning Tampa FL for 7 years now. We are not living high on the hog by no means but it's keeping the lad in the school we want him in and I have time to coach baseball etc. Got a real nice one...a local pga golfer I know and did two tiles, was a good day.

Congrats on the NEW Baby Tom ! I have not had a chance to try the chlorinated TSP yet, but we have some ordered. The Tampa Bay Rays are closing in on Boston, LOL
I saw the nice tile roofs you cleaned lately, they look great, as usual.
As you know, the first years in a child's life are very important. I think it is a good plan you have for Mom to care for the children, full time for now. Then, in four years, Dad can take it easy. The snook should be back by then, and maybe we can even keep one

Thanks Chris about the baby, toughest thing I/we have ever done in our/my life and I did it again on purpose, ya believe that? We go over it again and again about her working...a lot more than we should, but we are focused on exactly what you said about the first years of life. Sacrificing vacation, that fishing boat I want, trucks, advertising, new toys for the trailer, tickets to the rays, etc. and spend the money on plumbing, a/c, tuition etc. But in a few more years momma will be making $$ again and I can loosen up some.

F'n rays, lost today in the 8th, but they come back on at 0730 so maybe they will get it back. Toronto then Boston then it's over....

I haven't fished all summer long, and have no fish for our Oct. fish fry party. Maybe I'll catch the trout when the worms leave em alone this early OCt..?

Work seems to be getting good and steady once again...how bout you guys? Hope your son is ok now?

Yanks just hit a grand slam Tom, and rays losing

My Son is back to being his hard working self.

I got served today in Chuck's Divorce
That sucks to get called into a war between Chuck and his wife.

Yes, we have been comfortably busy every day for the past week or so, going to Apollo Beach tomorrow to Andalucia, and have a past river hills small shingle customer to do.

We are hoping for a playoff game in Tampa between Rays and Sox

Check out www.firstrowsports.tv Tom

I think an Irishman from Brooklyn can figure it out

Yuuungry! Go Tampa!

I got served also for Chuck. I have been using a different supplier only grabbing enough to top off a tank or two when I'm real close. So I don't think I will hurt him. Only have to have 4 years back by law anyway they are asking for 11?

Thanks for the heads up on the stream site! I had a few over for the fight over the weekend and gave em 50 bucks or whatever it is.

Awnclean?

Junior Dos Santos VS Velasquez, your prediction please ?
Velasquez destroyed Carwin, how can Junior handle that power ?

Rays play Rangers, they have a ton of offense, but we have pitching, and our Bats are on fire lately!
Longoria !!!!!!!!!!!

hehe, awnclean.... I have linkalizer appleman, it notifies me!

Velasquez has the most desire/health atm? I love to watch the big boys but I'm really into the lightweight guys. But if I had to bet my last c note it would be for Velasquez for sure. I would bet Lesnar will be back on top as he appears to have the most desire in the class, depends upon his health, he's matt hughes but in the HW division basically....you can't stop a strong motivated wrestler without a gun

Still happy with my Rays season, and have not watched a buc game yet :(

EDGAR !!!!!!!!
What a fighter, and that skinny John Jones too! Sonnen won his fight against Stann, kind of a surprise to me.
Lesnar was destroyed in last fight, but IF he can ever learn to be a better striker,lookout!
Still hoping my Tigers beat Texas, aint looking good though. Verlander got beat, Texas has awesome firepower, destroyed our Rays quickly
