Roof Cleaning

Since you don't rinse what happens if it rains the same day or next? Do you have any issues with the grass getting damaged? Thanks

You have to be careful when there is rain in the forecast. A light rain shortly after an application can wash the chems. off the roof and into the landscaping causing damage. A heavy rain will dilute the chems. enough that the landscaping will be safe.

If the home doesn't have gutters, even a heavy dew can cause the chems. to drip from the roof and onto landscaping causing damage. In this situation, we would rinse the bottom 5-6' of the roof.

Strength of your solution,and type of gutter drainage are other variables that effect these answers.

We also do not rinse for our roof cleaning Maryland. By paying close attention to the weather, a light rain that night will not adversely affect the roof treatment we sprayed earlier that day. After a few hours on the roof, the solution is inert and the rain will dilute it enough to keep the plants safe. (In addition to all the pre-soaking earlier in the day from our service). Depending on the yard, we may fully flush out the gutters before we leave just to be on the safe side. We have never had to replace a customer's plant nor rinsed a roof. Check out our 2010 Roof Cleaning Pictures - if you'd like!

Thanks guys these things are good to know. Since we are already watching the weather for deck restoration services adding roof cleaning in the schedule will be fun.

Hows this Working for you?

We see many Tampa Roof Cleaning Scams down here. I have developed a for sure spray and wait for the rain roof cleaning system. It really works, I field tested it over many years. The problem is here in Tampa, people want instant results. It was too hard of a sell, so I abandoned it. LOL, I should bottle and sell it ? It works better, and much faster, then any spray and forget or wet and forget. It does depend on the rain, so you are screwed if the customer is under trees! Not enough force from the rain will hit the roof for fast removal of the algae.

That is why we have been Making Roof Cleaning Safer in Tampa and educating the consumers of criminals in the industry. Who wants a drug addicted con man spraying questionable chemicals on their roof?

You couldn't have complimented me more.....

It's called hard work and dedication, the same stuff I used to make roof cleaning safer in Tampa.

I recently lost some baby weight I put on when my wife was pregnant, so I'm lean and looking good.

* Why the sudden explosion of roof staining? Modern shingle formulas include a variety of cellulose and limestone fillers which algae, fungus and moss find very nutritious. The appearance of black or green stains is the first sign that damage may be occurring. If this biological growth has infected your roof, it should not be ignored. Applying Roof Reviver(TM) is a simple and affordable way to protect your roof. In an hour or less!

Rain can be your friend, or your enemy, depending on how much of it you get, and when you get it.

Black Roof Stains are not just present on shingle roofs. We do a lot of Tile Roof Cleaning In Tampa and see it present on the roof tiles as well. In fact. here in Tampa, we see it growing on glass and aluminum too.

No one enjoys the day they pull into the driveway and notice black spots or streaks forming on their asphalt roof shingles. Most homeowners assume something has failed and the shingles surface granules have fallen off; fortunately, granule loss it's a myth common when investigating roof cleaning.

Often is the case when we clean a roof in Houston Texas that we see granular loss. As you see in the pictures here the granules come off the shingles and are then held in the Gutters. A well maintained clean roof will prevnt this granular loss and increase the life of the roof by as much as 50%.

I had a shingle scheduled the other day and had to tell the woman that she needed a new roof and not a cleaning because she had lost all the granules.

That's because you are ethical. Many Tampa Roof Cleaners will see the granule loss, and clean the roof anyway.
No Granules, no nice looking roof, clean or not.

Roof cleaning is an emerging market that has seen some explosive growth over the last few years. With this growth, comes a whole crop of new roof cleaning companies run by innovative entrepreneurs, brimming with ideas on improving the industry. Some keen businessmen have used the opportunity created by this growth, to establish roof cleaning certification programs. Whether or not these programs are viable, is a legitimate question for consumers looking to have their roofs cleaned.

Judgment is still out as it is not available on the industry yet, we have been washing roof since 2004 and have yet to by any reptile oil, just use the ARMA accepted technique like we do and you will be excellent.
