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.

Pressure Cleaning tips to homeowners..

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!

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.

Safe Non Pressure Roof Cleaning, Pressure Washing Orlando. Commercial and Residential there is nothing we can’t clean. Since 1998 thousands of roof cleaning and exterior cleanings have been cleaned by us and we are here to stay, no fly by night company can compete with our quality maybe our prices but you get what you pay for.. right!

Don’t replace your roof – Clean It and save thousands. Roof Cleaning is the first step to prolonging the life of your roof and never have your shingle or tile roof pressure washed for that will shorten the life by 50% by causing leaks from water intrusion, granule loss, glaze degradation of tiles. Plus pressure washing only lasts a few months and then what, you wasted your money for a short term cleaning or for a price that is a little more you can have a roof cleaning that lasts for years and years. You do the math, turn down all contractors who use high pressure to clean roofs. Those guys are called “gypsy cleaners” here today gone tomorrow!

We do use pressure washing to clean just about everything else BUT! We use the same mildew prevention solutions before or after the cleaning depending on the surface. We are not the stereotypical pressure cleaning company you see with fan tipped wands waving it side to side to clean driveways or exteriors. We have a chemical injection system that feeds the chemical into the water stream with certain tips and cuts off the chemical with other tips that were custom made to my preference. I can clean a pool enclosure by standing in 2 spots only and I do not have to get close up to remove the algae. I just put on the application tip and run it until I see suds and apply the chemical to all screens and beams and then once coated I will switch tips to my rinse tips and run it until it is fresh water coming out of the hose and I can rinse the entire area from one spot without moving until I have to adjust to get the other sides of the beams.

Too many pressure cleaning companies have popped up in the last few years and picked up their equipment at a pawn shop or craigslist and have not the slightest clue on how to do it right, they decide it is not what they want to do and “poof” they are gone. I have seen it way too much in the last 5 or 6 years, I have been to so many homes where the last guy is out of business and I can see the mess they left behind even after year. Plus they did it so cheap I have to spend extra time educating the customer on why, how, what, when to get a reasonable bid on my behalf and to hear that the last guy did it for less than half of what I charge and I ask why they did not call him then? They ALWAYS say the same thing everytime – they are out of business or did a horrible job. You want it done right…. pay a little more to a reputable company like us or a few I can say are good like All Florida Roof and Exterior, Semper Fi Pressure Washing, Touch O’ Class and a very few others are all good companies and have been in this business long enough and know what they are doing. You can tell by the way they present themselves and by thier knowledge of everything to what can be cleaned to what is that stain to why does it look like that etc… So ask questions ASK ASK ASK ASK!!! It is that simple, if they are doing the uh and duh deal or say I have no clue they are right they have no clue about roof cleaning and pressure washing move on until you find someone you are comfortable with. Don’t settle for the cheapest bid, that is a tactic of a desparate non experience guy just to make an easy sale and a quick buck, I have matched bids at times just so they do not get the job and then the customer sees my results and I have another repeat client that will only call me and will pay my prices because they know what they are getting. Listen, I am not charging rediculously high prices I am charging the average industry price so I will usually fall in the middle to high middle range. I am not going to cut throats or drain your bank, my prices are fair and I am running a business and not a charity. I need to make a profit to stay in business as well as enjoy some of it just like most people do.

Roof cleaning and pressure washing is not as easy as you may think and is a dangerous job, it is not carpet cleaning or mowing grass. We risk our lives everyday cleaning 1,2,3,4, and 5+ story roofs to make your home or business look good and have curb appeal. You fall – your done! We are insured in the event it happens and will be financially covered for life but I will not sugar coat what we do, we are extremely careful with safety precautions and do not have a single injury at all at Tropical since we started BUT accidents can happen and if you think that roof cleaning is a simple job and should not cost much come work with me and I will let you go up and spray a roof, you will have a sudden change of thinking. There is cost of product, gas to drive there, wear and tear on equipment, our time that it takes to clean each home or business, the inherant risks that are involved by walking roofs, insurance, worker comp (very expensive), helper payroll just to name a few. So just remember that guy that is going up that ladder to clean your roof is also a person who has bills to pay, a family to feed and take care of and in this economy cash is not always pumping in so take that into consideration when you try and get the lowest price and not the best quality.
