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 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. We actually vac or hand clean all the debris, bag all debris with 3 mil contractor bags and flush out all down spouts to ensure proper flow and dispose of the debris at our facility not your curbs.

Our services are for both commercial and residential roof cleaning and exterior cleaning. We have thousands of references and you are a guaranteed repeat customer once you have used us.

Thought of the day…In the last 7 days I have cleaned 12 Pool Enclosures and Pool Decks along with a 16 roofs and 9 exteriors and 20 driveways and sidewalks and 1 brick wall. I keep meaning to blog about this though and it has been a reoccuring question of many homeowners who have a dark/bronzed pool enclosure. If you have one or if you are another cleaning contractor who has seen this then you will know what I am talking about.

When the hurricanes hit in 2004 many pool enclosures were destroyed and rebuilt. Many were changed from the white colored enclosures to the dark/bronzed colored beams. Probably thinking it will hide the mildew better and not need cleaning as often and plus they look fancy. But when they are constructed they sometimes get etched or scratched during the shipment and will need touch up painting where the scratches were. In the first 2 years they may not be noticeable but after that the touch up paint fades it turns into a golden brown color. It can be as little as one small spot or it can be in several dozen spots. They are most noticable in places where the beams join together but can be anywhere that was scratched and you will notice it if you have one.

So it is not spots missed from your cleaning contractor and can’t be removed by simple cleaning. It will almost always require touch up painting every few years. So if you are deciding to purchase a new pool enclosure make sure that the builders take good care of the materials during installation and also shipment. Or just go with white, white lasts a lot longer and does not oxidize as fast. It is your preference though.

Also a note on Pool Deck cleaning. If you have a painted or coated deck never let anyone pressure wash it with a high pressure fan tip, make sure that they use a chemical pretreat and rinse lightly with low pressure or a water hose. High pressure will not properly kill the algae and it will also remove or pit the surface and will come back even worse in a short period of time. Plus a note to homeowners. Put all potted plants on rollers or on a stand so that the deck can dry underneath the pots. Clay pots will always stain the deck and the stains can not be removed so be sure to prop them up a inch or so with plastic stands or rollers so you do not get circles on the deck.

Pavers also should not be pressure washed with a high pressure fan tip because it will blow out the joint sand and cause your pavers to become uneven. I use a surface cleaner after prewetting the pavers with water to soften the mildew so that I can quickly go over the pavers without disturbing the joint sand and I rinse lightly at an angle with a ball valve to rinse all debris out the doors and not into the pool.

Choose your cleaning contractor carefully, there are a lot of inexperienced new guys in this – temporarily until the economy recovers and they may not be licensed or insured and can cause more damage than good. See how long they have been in business. Go to google and search www.sunbiz.org and look up by registered name and if they do not appear there than search with ficticious name. If they are not there either they are not legally licensed and definatley not insured and or not registered with the state of Florida. You will see how long they have been operating once found by the annual report, we are formally Jade Cleaning Systems and now Tropical Roof and Exterior Cleaning. Do a little research before you do any prospecting for cleaning contractors, and if they give you a copy of an insurance document do not assume it is real or in good standing call the agent listed on the document and make sure they are still insured and make sure that they are not using anyone elses insurance.

We are insured with Atlantic Casualty and carry a 2 million 1 million policy and our agent is Burchell Insurance in Winter Springs FL. We are registered with the state and we are licensed, plus we are workers comp compliant.

Thanks for reading and we would love to serve your every exterior cleaning needs.

When most people look into having their home or business’ roof, exterior or other surfaces cleaned they think pressure cleaning. But what most people are not educated on is who to hire and why. There are different ways to clean each surface correctly and incorrectly. Here is what I have noticed over the last decade and a half.

More people now know that pressure cleaning a roof is wrong and that it is very destructive whether it is tile, shingle, slate, metal or cedar shake even at the lowest pressure settings on a pressure washer. Still there are companies that still practice this method of roof cleaning which are usually new start up gigs that never last long, and homeowners and business owners that buy into pressure cleaning their roofs still; only to find out later that their warranty has been voided and the damage is irreversible. They can’t get the companies insurance to pay since they (the cleaning company) is out of business.

The proper companies to hire are companies who only use non pressure methods by using chemical roof cleaning and only rinsing off with a water hose. If they say that they do that and show up to clean your roof and fire up a pressure washer after applying a product to your roof, YOU the HOMEOWNER have the legal right to stop them from continuing and pay them nothing. Why? They made a false pretensious sale by lying and that legally voids even a signed contract. So be sure to hire a well known or certified roof cleaner like me at Tropical or any other company that only practices Safe No Pressure Roof Cleaning.

Read this Post; http://roof-cleaning-institute.activeboard.com/t45177008/manufacturers-suggest-1-way-to-clean-roofs-chlorine-no-after/

Now for exteriors, screen enclosures, walls, fences and painted flat surfaces pressure cleaning is still an accepted method. IF done properly by first applying a chemical solution and rinsing gently with the use of either a water hose or a pressure washer. The stereotypical picture you may invision of pressure cleaning is a contractor blasting off stuff with a high pressure fan tip waving it side to side and up and down to clean your home or business which is still used today only for paint preps not for basic cleaning and maintanence. That method is so outdated for cleaning that if you hire someone and notice they are doing it stop them immediatly!

The way that I prefer to clean those surfaces is by using a pressure washer with a chemical injection setup and custom made application tips and rinse tips not the stock tips that come with the pressure washer when it was purchased, I usually throw those in the trash or leave them with the dealer. I have 3 different application tips with a wide orface to allow the injection system to let the concentrated cleaning solution to mix with the water being fed through the hose and the rinse tips are smaller orfaced to cut off the circulation of chemical and allows only fresh water to pass for rinsing. I have 2 rinse tips one I have is worth $50.00 for just the tip alone and it is a high reaching stream/fan tip that can clean a 3 story building from the ground. Another reason I use this method is because I know exactly what percent I am spraying at all times which is 12.5% chemical and 87.5% water. Now, about the other correct method I (used) to use is by spraying a solution on with a 12 volt pump and rinsing with a water hose and I still use this method by request only. I do not prefer this method because it is time consuming, you can’t get mud dauber and wasp nests down easily with a waterhose especially if the house has very little water pressure and lastly you never really know if you are spraying too hot or too weak. I rather know for sure.

Now on concrete and pavers. There are 2 ways to clean these correctly and both ways involve using chemical. First, I will explain my way and then the other way I used to do it and why and the wrong way.

On non painted, non sealed or non coated surfaces I always pressure clean them using a surface cleaner first, then I rinse off the entire surface and apply a (LIGHT SOLUTION) to kill any reminents of the mildew spores and remove acorn and other growth stains. The reason for the light solution after cleaning? Grass along the edges of driveways and sidewalks and to make sure that the cleaning lasts a long time. Not a few months but for a few years. Note: it also depends on the shade and weather conditions but even then my process lasts 10 times longer than conventional pressure washing.

The second correct way I used to use is the spray it HOT! and let the rain wash it away method. I stopped using this method mainly because people want instant results and grass edges would get burned slightly due to the higher concentration of chemicals since lighter mixes take forever to get results and I had to waste gas by going back to touch up spots.

I also have seen the wrong way A LOT!! Everywhere I go I critique others work that I see around Central Florida during my schedules or on homes that I am there to do some cleaning for since the last guy did not make a happy customer. I can tell when a wand and fan tip was used, an orbital tip was used, and a surface cleaner was used since the pattern they took to clean it is visible. Why? They just used water, water has no cleaning or mildew spore killing properties and even though it may look clean once it is finished it will start coming back in as little as 3 weeks! 3 weeks of a clean driveway for the same price or maybe a little more for a driveway that stays clean for 2 to 3 years?? Make sure they use chemicals when they clean your driveway and sidewalks so you don’t waste your money. The guy who did your driveway and left lines everywhere probably bought pawn shop gear and just needed some quick cash so beware.

Tile Roof Cleaning requires no damaging high pressure or even the use of a pressure washer in any way what so ever. The way Tropical cleans tile roofs and shingle roofs is how the roofing manufacturer recommends it. It is a light blend of safe solutions applied with an electric 12v pump and rinsed off with a waterhose. It is that safe for your roof no matter the material it is made of.

Our roof cleanings last for up to 5 years and longer depending on the conditions since our solutions actually kill the mildew that is infesting and slowly destroying your roof instead of blasting it off with water and high pressure.

The reason I choose these companies to quote and service projects I can’t get to is my peace of mind. It is also my reputation on the line and I can’t justify calling some big corpoation who will just over price you and give you broken promises or the newbe in this business who thinks that this is a cake walk type job and take that chance. We have all earned our place in this industry by years and years of experience and proving ourselves by aquiring so many repeat customers in the roof cleaning and pressure washing industry.

This should take out the guess work and the idea of shopping around for the cheapest out there; the cheapest are cheap for a reason. No experience, no sales skill and they have to bid low to get work since they are usually desparate for work but in the end they never last and move on to other ventures.

In the summer and every summer for the last 14 years business is at it’s slowest but this year has been the slowest yet! It has a lot to do with the economy and the elections coming up. People in general are holding on to every dollar they can from being unsure of what the future holds. So what we at Tropical have done over the last few months is work with our suppliers and vendors on getting better rates for us so we can get better rates to you. We purchase over 30k dollars a year in cleaning solution alone not to mention all of the other parts and supplies to keep us fully up to date with our equipment and vehicals. One thing we will never skimp on is top notch insurance for both parties protection. But our rates are very competitive, not saying we are the cheapest because to do it right or have it done right you will be paying more. I have seen the results of the super cheap guys and they are not pretty. You know the saying “You get what you pay for” well that stands so true in this business. I have heard from many people I have met over the years when giving a price for cleaning they tell me the last guy did it for this and I ask them why didn’t they call them. This is the most common answer: they are out of business! – or – they killed all of my plants and did a lot of damage! So don’t go with the cheapest bids people, that is just too risky and if it sounds too good to be true, it is.

I price every roof cleaning job or any other cleaning service the same. If you live in a modest 1200 sqft home or a 40,000 sqft home I never judge on income or status. I clean NBA players homes for the same price as any other home. Priced per sqft. Equally and that is the bottom line so don’t let any other company take advantage of you because of your status. I give active and non-active military and senior discounts and also package deals.

Give us a call today for more information and a free consultation. I will come out and see what you have and give my recommendations as well. It is free and there are no obligations.
