Our Tile Roof Cleaning MethodWhether we're cleaning asphalt, tile or cedar, our method for cleaning roofs is to avoid using chlorine bleach at all costs. Aside from avoiding damage to your landscaping, it's actually the ultimate long-term strategy because the cost of having to continuously go back and redo work that was done with bleach is much higher than doing it right the first time. That's because all bleach products do is turn the black mold stains on your roof "translucent" by "bleaching" them. There's an old saying with tools: 'Buy once, cry once,'” Grandfather said and this applies to roof cleaning as well. On a roof "white roof algae" can't be seen from the ground it becomes translucent until the next blooming season, then guess what? the whole roof blooms black again. Our Tile Roof Wash is hydrogen peroxide based. Instead of using bleach products that just turn the black mold stains on your roof "translucent" by "bleaching" them, you need a product that will remove stains for good. You with us? OK, now let's get to the cleaning! Onward!
