Roof Cleaning a Tampa Tile Roof by PEERLESS

Hi folks, please enjoy this Tampa roof cleaning article about cleaning flat cement roof tiles with a very steep pitch. We enjoyed cleaning the tiles and this job was a bit of a challenge, so I would like to share some pictures with you.

The first picture displays the steep pitch of this roof. All of the valley's had pine straw and broken down leaves sediment packed in them. We use extendable painters poles (18ft) with a hook attached at the end to grab and pull the pine straw back to us on our ladders.

After we have cleaned out all of the valley's and gutters we rinse the roof tiles down with our 0040 soap nozzle on the pressure washers. We feel this is a very important step, removing old leaf sediment and other dust and debris that the cleaning mix will not take care of. This time we just attach our 12 foot aluminum lances and again, shoot from one of our ladders.

Aiming at the lip edge of the tile removing years of sediment will allow the roof cleaning solution a free path to attack the algae and mold feeding upon the tile. This also is a good time to fully rinse out the gutter system and make sure the downspouts are flowing.

Finally after much preparation, our roof cleaning solution is applied with the normal non pressure method. The tiles are saturated with the solution starting with the darkest stains until the entire area of the roof we are working is covered. Touch ups are done as needed after the entire roof has been sprayed.

Hope y'all enjoyed the pictures and thread!
Stay safe, TP

I would love to come Ron but I have too much on my plate atm.

Sorry I missed the Tampa event. My wife and I were planning to come but the morning of the event I was running around closing up a few jobs and I got home an hour before the event, was rushing around and then Amy (8 months pregnant)was like " do I really have to go hear you talk about pressure washing all day?

She obviously doesn't know how much we love our wands!

So we went to a movie and our favorite bbq place while we had grandma watching the lad and stuffed our pie holes LOL...

OMG go see Machete!

Thanks Ken,

This one was a bear. Got another one like it scheduled with a faux finish paint job. The guy has it sprayed with clear acrylic every few years to protect the job. Gonna be a nice one.

I'm pretty sure it was you that sent me that large shingle off of Lumsden last week TY

I'll give you a call mang, I'm a helper coach for T-ball, have game to get ready for, then I kick my feet up for today.

peace

Here is a pic of the roof cleaning in Tampa with the faux paint exterior.
Gotta watch the roof mix when your spraying next to a paint job like that one!

These homes are located in a private gated golfing community in Tampa that we have been working in for years. The course is absolutely in perfect shape and is a beast from the tips.

We did the neighbors roof also.

I have a hot hand atm?

2 more roof cleanings in Tampa right next door to these coming right up!
Check out this photo, this roof was a BEAST.

My god we are so happy summer is behind us. Tampa had the hottest summer recorded in years. The mix was burning so fast due to the hot roofs.

After all of the rainfall we have had plants are stronger than ever. The last couple weeks have been a bit dry due to the cool down but we are in great shape for roof cleaning.

I see dirty roofs everywhere...
C'mon guys lets get em!

We just finished a few commercial roof cleanings in Tampa last week.
This one was an asphalt shingle roof in need of debris removal and a non pressure chemical cleaning.

We pressure cleaned the exterior, sidewalks, dumpster pad and even blew the acorns and leaves out of the parking areas.

Two more projects scheduled in Tampa like this one!

Here is a three story roof cleaning we did recently that stands out from the normal roof.

This tile roof cleaning in Tampa was done in very cold weather.

This beautiful Tampa home is right next to one of my favorite local golf courses. When I clean in this community it is nice to dream what it would be like to live so close to such a high caliber course. I would play too much golf! We love playing at this course when we can get on....always pointing and saying "did that one, that one, and that one, and that one, that one..) Highly manicured golf courses are the epitome of hard work and cohesion IMO, when I'm on a golf course I feel free and ready to play my best. One day (before I'm 55)I will quit this business and play golf and fish all day everyday.....maybe dominate the Sr. tour?


The year is almost over and we have only three projects left to get done before Christmas. Hopefully get everything done this week and then I can spend some time off with my family and new baby. We have been working pretty much 6/7 days a week now for the last few months. Yesterday we went to downtown Tampa and took the lad ice skating during this cold front that has the wind blowing in gusts over 40 mph.

Too many nice days to go out and spray in that garbage!

Merry Christmas folks.

We have another monster three story on the water coming up Ken!!!
Was a real tough sale, guy was trying to sell it to her for about 35% less of our price and then smack a ridiculous lift fee on it. I get my lifts at a discounted price

Check this one out!

This roof cleaning in Valrico was at the corner of Westbrook Ave and Bryan Road


For a local business. We did his home also..

Hehe you gotta love it....

Ya it was a nice day when we did that roof cleaning.
We could see a roof cleaning truck off in the distance, sitting there doing nothing, wishing she had a roof to clean. I was wondering if the smell of work was going to wake up the cyber cleaner, but it was early in the morning!

We just finished this roof cleaning Tampa project up recently for a New Tampa Hoa - Property walls, sidewalks and pool cabana.

This one was fun.

Last guy broke 125 roof tiles.

Safe to say we have another customer for life?

We took pics of all the tiles before/after to display none were damaged.
If you look closely you can see it looks like a jigsaw puzzle that has been pasted together.

How about waking up to that view?????

This was a steep roof cleaning we recently did.
The homeowner said it was a 10/12 pitch.

I love the tall steep ones in Tampa. This one had gutters pretty much all the way around the home. A local Tampa pressure washer that we network with referred us this roof.
