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.

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.

Orlando Roof Cleaning

Roof Cleaning Orlando by Tropical Roof and Exterior Cleaning Systems providing Safe NO PRESSURE Roof Cleaning services serving all of Greater Orlando and Surrounding areas. Safely cleaning tile, shingle, slate, metal, terra cotta and cedar shake roofs without the use of pressure washing which pressure washing will ultimately cause leaks from water intrusion from the high pressure that is used and it will shorten the life in your roof by 10 years in one cleaning and it will not last for no more than 6 months before you have to clean it again.

Tropical’s Roof Cleaning process is a safe non pressure chemical roof cleaning alternative that is safe for plants, pets and people. The myths that chemical roof cleaning is bad for plants; stems from inexperienced roof cleaners that use very high concentrations of roof cleaning chemicals and not enough water to rinse off landscaping. Also they rely on plastic coverings so they rinse very little and never rinse the roof when finished. We never have to use plastic coverings for plants since plastic can also cause plants to become over heated from becoming too hot under the plastic sheeting creating a mini green house effect we also never have to use plastic coverings since we use the exact right mix ratio to effectively and efficiently clean your roof, plus we keep your landscape cool and fresh by continuously rinsing with water while the cleaning solution is being applied, we rinse off the roof with a water hose and rinse the plants again. We have never damaged landscaping from our roof cleaning or exterior cleaning process. After doing this for 14 years we know what to do in every situation.

Chemical Roof Cleaning is a very affordable investment that will give you many benefits including the removal of toxic mildew from your roof, curb appeal by making your roof look like new, it will extend the life you have in your roof by removing destructive mildew and many other benefits. For an average 2000 sqft home with a shingle roof it will cost only $250.00 – $275.00 to have a roof cleaned that will stay clean for many years unlike pressure washing that will only last a few months as well as destroy your roof which is a waste of money.

Don’t be fooled by these other “NEW” roof cleaning products you see at your local home improvement store or you find online for the do it yourselfer. You will spend more in time and money when you could have had a professional do it for you, plus you are putting yourself in danger by doing it yourself by climbing on ladders and walking on your roof without the experience that we have from years and years of walking all types of roofs.

We also safely clean exteriors, screen enclosures, driveways, sidewalks, fences, walls, patio furniture, pool decks, awnings, seal pavers and offer full service gutter cleaning, our gutter cleaning cleaning service does not leave a mess behind like others who just blow leaves and debris in your yard.

Mansion Exterior Cleaning Experts

Roof Cleaning Orlando by Tropical Roof and Exterior Cleaning Systems.

Safely cleaning all roof types without the use of any pressure what so ever, as well as non damaging chemical pressure cleaning exteriors, driveways, sidewalks, screen enclosures, pool decks, patio furniture, full service gutter cleaning, wood and vinyl fences and more..

Today is the 10th year cleaning a certain home in Winter Park and man how does time fly. I first cleaned this home with Ryan Komanetsky in 2001 right after 9/11 and remember it like it was yesterday. I now have a certain pattern I take every time that is time efficient unlike the first time that took us a day and a half. We clean it every year or twice a year depending if the homeowner has a special event happening at this home. There are many mansions that we clean or have cleaned over the last 14 years, but this homeowner likes his house spotless all the time and chooses Tropical to maintain the cleaning and has been for 10 years now, that says a lot about our quality of work and since this blog site is pretty new you will be seeing a lot more big homes in the next few weeks, months and years. Our specialty is big residential and small residential homes and commercial as well. Wait until Thursday and we will have another big home to show you.

We take every step to ensure that everything meets every homeowners standards plus some, everytime we clean anything! If realtors, banks, NBA players, big names all over Orlando, health care companies, people you see on TV every night and people who have done well in life trust us to clean their homes and investment properties over and over again then you can trust us to clean your home or business. We will never mention any names for the privacy of our clients unless they say it is ok to do so.

Also, just because you seem to have money does not make us jack up prices by judging you from the home you live in or the title you carry. We treat everyone equally when we do estimates and we clean equally when cleaning.

You will be surprised who I have met and cleaned homes for over the years and still do and have a good repore with them. I got into NBA properties while working for the NBA and the Orlando Magic at night from 2004-2007 and there are many players homes I have cleaned that do not even play for the Magic. I just did one players home and then all of a sudden did 20 players homes. They are just like us, they work and come home and spend time with family and friends. They just play ball for a living.

If you are looking into having your home or business’ roof or exterior cleaned or anything else cleaned keep us in mind for a FREE NO JUDGEMENTAL & NO OBLIGATION quote. Call 407-415-3419 or www.tropicalroofandexterior.com for more information. We will come out and go over everything with you. We will let you know if we recommend anything or if it even needs cleaning. Yes, we have been to homes where it was not even dirty before and gave them the choice to have it cleaned or wait. We believe in honesty before profit and will be sure that you get treated fairly by taking actual photos of stuff you can’t see from the ground like gutters for example; I have been to some homes where the homeowners swear that the gutters are completely filled with debris and wants it clean out and so I set up my ladder to find a golf ball or tennis ball or something blocking the downspout and the gutter has nothing but some roof granules or a few leaves in them. I will take a digital photo and show them, of course I can’t charge them for a gutter cleaning service but will charge a $20.00 travel charge if scheduled with no other services.
