What chemicals do we use to clean your roof?
The chemicals we use, or any Orlando roof cleaning company uses, are a cause for concern and for good reasons. When it comes time to clean your roof, normally the first question is: Will It kill my plants? or Is it safe for the environment or biodegradable?
Anyone that has cleaned roofs a long time knows there are some tried and proven chemicals that work and others that claim to work, but either are not cost effective or don't work well at all. Careful consideration and respect not only for what we put on your roof, but for the personal safety of ourselves, you and your household, or your business and customers is of the utmost importance.
Plants come in direct contact as an unavoidable result of being under the drip line of our solution. Gutters help when present, but a lot of houses and businesses do not have gutters. So, we have to take extra precautions to protect, rinse and cover where necessary.
At A-1 Roof Cleaning and Roof Restoration, we clean every type of roof. Whether it's metal, shingle, concrete tile, clay tile or flat roof, we clean all roofs with different kinds of environments, situations and stages of condition.
Some roofs needed to be cleaned years ago, and others are not as bad. With each job is a little different situation, we adjust our techniques and mixtures accordingly. In most situations, we start with a professional grade algaecide and then blend other cleaners and surfactants as deemed necessary for that particular job. We always want to use the best and safest products for the roof as well as safe procedures for our customers and the environment.
Our promise to you is that you will have a perfectly clean roof that will stay clean for a long time. That's the reason we are constantly adjusting our mix and have tweaked our formula and perfected it over the past 20 years. We then "Sweeten" the final mix so it's less harsh on landscaping and the environment. That's why we like to call it our "Honey". Apparently, it's sweet enough that 40,000 bees landed in front of a roof we had just cleaned and no bees or plants were harmed. They were saved and relocated. You can read the full story about the swarm of honey bees here.
We never rest in our quest to be educated and informed when it comes to our knowledge of "advanced" or "improved" formulas. Including those that are currently "HOT" in today's market. If its out there and its better than what we know works, we want to know about it.
We also know a thing or two because we have been doing this for over 20 years, and know that new chemicals and new formulations with misleading, hyped up and sometimes even preposterous claims hit the market every few years. There is nothing wrong with trying new things, but we know from experience that most, if not all, of the stuff they are trying to sell us and homeowners simply do not make the hard task we do any easier. More often than not, we hear from customers that it's their way of up-selling the job.
Nevertheless, we remain optimistic and open minded. In fact, we welcome you to share with us any new ideas or experiences you may have had, thinking about trying or wanting us to try. You can contact us here for a free estimate or call us at 407.877.3210. We would be more than glad to share our experience with you.
Our goal is simply to get your job done for a fair market price, and at the same time eliminate or limit the risk for everyone involved in doing a difficult and dangerous job by using equipment, techniques and proven formulas perfected over a very long time.
We either paint or seal approximately 50% of the metal and tile roofs and flat roofs we clean. So, as standard procedure, we clean every roof as if it were being painted to insure it's done right and we warranty all of our work.
We do all our work in-house. We do not subcontract out any work, and we handle difficult jobs. See our full portfolio here.
Since we don't subcontract out any of our work, that's just another reason to use an Orlando roof cleaning and Orlando roof restoration company with the years of experience. We have the willingness to take the time and steps necessary to protect everything. The competition might be faster and cheaper, but they may cost you more in the long run — especially if they harm or kill your 20 year old landscaping that isn't easily replaced. And, if that does happen, they may not be have the resources or will to even try to do something about it.
