Cleaning your Florida roof: Roof-A-Cide

Everyone likes the feeling of owning something brand new. Whether it’s a new car, new clothes, or a new roof, having it brand new is clean and nice, right?


How can I verify my roofing contractor is properly licensed and has insurance?

Things don’t stay new forever though, and a roof is no different. When you re-roof your home, the day it’s finished it’s a great feeling; new and clean. Whether a tile or a shingle roof, years later it will loose its “new” and “clean” look and may need to be cleaned to maintain that new feeling.


Many people do not realize that you can actually clean a roof. After years, your shingle or tile roof may have unsightly staining and lack that new feeling due to moisture from humidity, moss, debris, and unfortunately algae. Everybody want’s a beautiful property, and your roof is a big part of maintaining that beauty.

With proper roof maintenance you can keep your roof leak free and avoid major damage in the future, but you should also consider adding roof cleaning to your yearly or bi-yearly roof maintenance plan.


Unfortunately, repeated roof cleaning can actually cause more damage to your roof – and high pressure pressure washing on a tile roof can sometimes cause more harm than good, breaking and cracking tiles. Florida Southern Roofing is now an authorized applicator for Roof-A-Cide.
