I first want to say belated “Happy New Year” and I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season.

This is the first post I have made since November 29th due to being super busy on into the first 2 weeks of 2012. We did a lot of non profit work for some people and business’ that we had to postpone until now.  Our last quarter in 2011 was great and I want to thank all of our new and repeat customers for thier business over the last several years.

New for Tropical in 2012, we will now be performing pool services upon me getting my CPO license or Certified Pool Operator Lic. Also, Jamie Gillespie will be back from up north in April so we can get our interior and exterior painting back on the go I just never have time to paint since Blaine and I stay steadily busy with cleaning jobs and paver seals however Blaine will be going to the sales side and Edmundo will become a full time tech.

So again HAPPY NEW YEAR and make it great one too!

I found an article today that was presented to everyone at the RCIA from Chris Tucker a friend from Tampa and owner of Apple Roof Cleaning. This is for everyone who wanted to know if Chlorine / Sodium Hypochlorite is safe for people, pets and plants as well as the environment and roofs. Note: All major and non major roofing manufacturers recommend the CORRECT use of chlorine bleach as the base chemical for cleaning roofs just FYI!

Here isthe article as a copy and paste from the RCIA website.

Here is the low down on Sodium Hypochlorite.

Human and Environmental Safety

During the last few years there has been a concerted effort to investigate and assess the human and environmental safety aspects of sodium hypochlorite. An extensive review of the literature has been undertaken by many investigators and the conclusions drawn are that sodium hypochlorite is safe for humans and the environment.

 

Depending on the concentration involved, hypochlorite solutions can be classified as either irritant or corrosive and appropriate precautions should be taken when using the product, carefully reading the label, adhering to cautionary warnings and following usage directions. Particular attention must be paid to not mixing with other products, such as toilet bowl cleaners, rust removers, ammonia or acids. Although skin and mucous membrane irritation can occur when the exposure concentration is greater than 5%, these effects are reversible. The overall safety of sodium hypochlorite is further documented by reports from poison control centres in North America and Europe which show no major health effects after unintentional ingestion or skin contact. The unpleasant taste of the product prevents unintentional ingestion of significant quantities and thereby limits the extent of injuries. It is documented that sodium hypochlorite is not a mutagen, carcinogen, teratogen or skin sensitizer. Indeed, in the context of its use in drinking water, IARC (the International Agency for Research on Cancer) has concluded that chlorinated drinking water is not a “classifiable” human carcinogen. Under normal household use, sodium hypochlorite is broken down in the environment into table salt, oxygen and water. Other substances may be formed, to a small extent. These by-products are most often referred to as AOX (adsorbable organic halides). A great many studies have been made to provide a risk assessment of household bleach in terms of its formation of AOX. The conclusions drawn were:

  • the amount of AOX is very small both in absolute terms and relative to other human activities and natural sources,
  • the majority of these AOX are easily degradable,
  • the AOXs formed are primarily water soluble and not bio-accumulative.
  • highly chlorinated species, such as dioxins, are not formed.

 

The conclusion of the Swedish Environmental Research Institute was that sodium hypochlorite “does most probably not create environmental problems when used in the right manner and in recommended quantities”.

 

Conclusion

Sodium hypochlorite has a long history of safe use in homes, hospitals and schools, and it is widely available at low cost to consumers. It is highly beneficial to basic hygiene and good health due to its disinfecting and sanitizing qualities. It kills all known germs and a wider range of bacteria than other disinfectants, and it helps to prevent the spread of diseases through water and surfaces.

Orlando Roof Cleaning and Pressure Washing Services

Orlando Roof Cleaning by Tropical Roof and Exterior Cleaning Systems using NON PRESSURE Safe Roof Cleaning methods and chemically injected pressure washing services as well as paver sealing, tile roof painting and restoration, full service gutter cleaning and screen repairs.

Our Roof Cleaning service is a Non Pressure Roof Cleaning that is manufacturer approved by all manufacturers of roofing materials. Our roof cleaning solution is applied with a 12 volt electric pump evenly over the entire roofs surface and cleans almost immediately removing all black and green mildew discoloration. It kills the mildew unlike pressure washing that just cuts the top of the mildew off like mowing grass as well as pressure washing any type of roof whether it is shingle or tile will cause irreversable damage and water intrusion. Pressure washing a roof will not last as long, chemical roof cleaning lasts 20 times longer and is safer, more cost effective and will restore your roof to new in a single day. No worry about dead plants no worry about paint damages no worry about roof damages. We use our solution to clean all surfaces to ensure that the cleaning lasts and you get your full moneys worth and NOT a SHORT term temporary fix.

We do use pressure washers to clean every other surface but we are not the stereotypical pressure washing guys you see doing up close blasting of surfaces which can be damaging as well. See, we used to do it all with the electric pump and a water hose method like certain bigger companies do but the problem was we never could get an exact percentage of mix since every surface requires a certain mix ratio plus a water hose to rinse off an exterior?? Never really gets it all off! We have all custom application and rinse tips and our machines are equipped with chemical injection systems that only let solution through with certain tips. We first apply the solution in big sections usually 1/2 the house (2000 sqft) home and then go back and switch to rinse tips which only allow fresh water to come through and rinse the exterior off with fresh water. This system is 10 times more efficient, safer and thorough than the pump and waterhose method. I can and will use either upon special request but I recommend our preferred method. It is more work setting up and breaking down the equipment for us but the results are stellar and more effecient cleaning wise.

Exteriors, Pool Enclosures, Pool Decks, Driveways and Sidewalks, Wood and Vinyl Fences and all other surfaces are still chemically cleaned we never clean anything with plain water because we want it to last for you and we work for your repeat business just like every single client we have. We are always busy and we are always steady and we will be here to stay. We love cleaning roofs and all other exterior surfaces that is our profession that is our passion not just a job. We take pride in our work and we take care of you always.

Orlando Safe No Pressure Roof Cleaning and Pressure Washing all other surfaces safely without any damages and you will have long lasting results since we always use cleaning solutions with all of our cleaning services not plain water.

I have been super busy over the last 3 months and have had little time to post blogs for Tropical. We have been cleaning a lot of new customers homes and also repeats and referrals. We are getting so busy to the point where I may have to hire 2 more techs and a salesman. The reason I have not hired another crew to do the work is simply: I used to work for a big company and have seen first hand the results of big companies and the employees they hire and not all are bad but have bad habits like doing the Friday shuffle or 5 O’clock shuffle to get off work early. I have always considered hiring a 2nd crew and when it all comes down to it I just can’t trust someone servicing a customer of mines home. I worry about a poor job, or damaged plants or other problems that I have never had with Tropical. I have high expectations and standards on every job we do. I will not even consider ever selling my business because of what I have built and accomplished just to see it get tarnished by someone who does not have a good business ethic.

I have finially found probably the best assistant I have had since I started Tropical. Blaine Partee is now full time and will be doing sales and service while we look for the next member of Tropical. What I am looking for is a NON-SMOKER, a legal US citizen, drug free (drug testing is MANDATORY!!), must have own transportation, at least 4 years experience in the roof and exterior cleaning industry with references and a background check, willing to work weekends and willing to be paid weekly not daily. I pay 100.00 per day 8am to 5pm starting pay and 5% extra for leads and 15% for sales commission also 150.00 per day for days that are $1500.00 or more in production which are common but our average day is $1000.00 in production. Once proven that you can do all the cleaning services and sealing services without issues and keep equipment in 100% perfect shape a raise will be given. I do not want anyone who is prone to wanting days off on short notice except for real emergencies, I need a reliable clean cut person who takes pride in thier work and is driven to sell more services while on the job. No excessive piercings or tattoos, no criminal records no exceptions period. Sorry, I have had a bad experience with a great tech who had personal issues and had to let him go. I want a person who is real, and who is a good people person that acts, dresses and talks professional and educated. I give 1 chance and that is it no plant damage, no property damage, no short cuts and no mess left behind. I do not accept complaints from business and homeowners. I will look into the issue before I make a decision since issues may not even be an issue.

If I can go 14 years without damaging anything then it is possible to do a perfect job. Our goal on every project is to gain repeat business and I am really good at that since 90% of all homes I have cleaned I have done more than 1 time and I have several hundred homes I service.

If you think you can live with my standards of how my business works and need a job then give me a call or Email your resume’ to info@tropicalroofandexterior.com and I will set up a lunch interview meeting with you.

Orlando Safe No Pressure Roof Cleaning and Pressure Washing all other surfaces safely without any damages and you will have long lasting results since we always use cleaning solutions with all of our cleaning services not plain water.

Here are a few tips for homeowners to prevent certain stains that will not come off with cleaning…

Floor mats: I have noticed over the past 14 years that certain floor mats always leave a stain on painted decks and entrys by front doors due to the material they are made from. Black rubber mats are the worst since they act kind of like a tire peeling out on pavement, when you come inside you wipe your feet over and over and the mat leaves black marks. Another thing is moisture under the mats, when you have your deck or entry cleaned always make sure it is dry before replacing the mats. We do not leave mats rolled up because we forget, we do it so it will not leave a stain. Use mats that are made from other materials besides black rubber.

Iron Patio Furniture: If you plan on or have iron patio furniture it is a good idea to purchase plastic tabs for the legs and feet of the furniture so that the furniture will not leave rust stains on the deck or pavers. Use an adhesive to hold them on so that they do not come off easy. It will save you from having to replace or recoat your deck or patio.

Potted Plants: Years of cleaning decks and other flat surfaces I have seen it all, I have seen decks ruined from potted plants being set flat on the decks and circles of stains from the potted plants especially clay and metal pots. What you can do is put them on rollers or on plastic shims to keep the pots up off the deck about an inch so that the deck can dry properly under the pots and will not leave stains.

Gutter Downspouts: If you have gutters on your home and have a downspout that runs onto your driveway try and devert it away from the driveway or pavers so that it will not erode away the surface from constant water and also another benefit is that it will prevent moldy black stuff from accumulating in those areas.

Armor All Tire Wet: If you have a concrete driveway and have areas that are white on the driveway that are visible especially after having it cleaned it is armor all stains and they will not come off. If you decide to use armor all on your tires do it in the street or put cardboard under the tires and do not spray it on, use an application pad to apply.

Vines and Mud Dauber Nests: If you see vines starting to grow on your exterior pull them off asap because once they root in they will leave little black spots everywhere and cannot be removed by cleaning without damaging the paint. Mud Dauber nests are a common occurrance on many homes and if not removed quickly they will almost always leave a stain behind since the mud they use has had time to set in on your paint and will not come off.

I hope this information helps you out, and when the time comes for a roof cleaning, exterior cleaning, screen enclosure cleaning, pool deck cleaning, driveway and sidewalk cleaning or a paver seal give us a call and we will take good care of you like the thousands of customers we have serviced over the past decade and a half.

Our other services include Paver Sealing and Tile Roof Painting and Restoration plus we also work with many other contractors who paint, install gutters, re-screen specialists and more so ask us who we recommend and give them a try.

FOOD FOR THOUGHT! I WAS THINKING ABOUT THIS TODAY: I did a pool enclosure cleaning today on my last job and I was thinking about what the lady had asked me while doing the qoute. (She asked if the screens can be cleaned or did she need to replace them) and I told her I can get them looking brand new. She lost hope in her screens and might have spent a few thousand getting a rescreen instead of a clean. It came out looking perfect as always and she was happy with the results. So before you replace dirty screens call us first to see if they can be cleaned. I have cleaned hundreds of pool enclosures over the last 14 years and they all come out the same.. Clean! So many different sizes and scenerios it has become one of my favorite things to clean. I love the results and I love the compliments I get from homeowners.

There are times though where we will have to come out to look at a property personally.

Roof Cleaning should never be done by pressure washing. The only way that any roof should be cleaned is with a soft chemical cleaning process and rinsed only with a waterhose from a standard water spigot.

Pressure Washing all other surfaces is actually not the stereotypical blast stuff off with water deal. There is a process that we use that involves the use of pressure washing. But our machines are equipped with an injection system and custom application and rinse tips so that there will be no damaging pressure as well as we use only double steel braided mark free hoses so you never have black or blue marks that rub against your home or business’ exterior. The way it works: I will say it in easier terms, apply the solution to the surface then switch tips and run until fresh water comes out then rinse and is done in sections. No getting up close and blasting stuff off just a spray and rinse. Why did we switch to using pressure washers for all other cleanings except roofs? Because, you can get more cleaned safely and the solution is controlled to an exact mix and no guessing what is in the tank. We used to do it the way of the ducks but found it to be more of a problem than a solution since you may have a 20-30 percent solution and you end up with dead plants or plants that are severely damaged as well as areas that could not be reached or rinsed thoroughly with a water hose.

Driveway and Walkway Cleaning is done with a surface cleaner not an orbital tip or a wand. We clean the entire surface first, then we rinse off all dirt, mildew and other contaminants that were on the surface and then apply a light solution to prevent fast regrowth and give a long lasting even cleaning.

Gutter Cleaning is always a full service. It includes hand or vac cleaning the gutters out (not blowing out leaves with a pressure washer or blower all over your lawn and shrubs) and then the debris is bagged in 3 MIL contractor bags and disposed of by us at our facility.

So if you want great service that is thorough and dependable give us a try!
