Leave the Roof Cleaning to the Professionals
You may be thinking about cleaning your roof if it's been a few years since you purchased your home or have never had it cleaned. It is a great idea to regularly clean your roof to avoid expensive repairs in the future. Professionals recommend cleaning it every 5-8 years. You may also be thinking about tackling the job yourself, but there are several reasons this is a job best left to the experts.
First, let's think about your safety. You are likely not a trained professional who regularly walks on rooftops or balances on tall ladders. And, there is the added danger that water is involved. It can be easy to make the ladder or roof wet, making it easy for you to slip and fall. You could sustain an injury or worse.
Next, let's think about the equipment needed to clean the roof. You need specialized cleaners that won't dry out your shingles. You also want to make sure you're using a pressure washer with the right amount of pressure. If you use too much pressure, you're likely to blast away roof tiles or shingles and the very least some of the granules that adhere those to the roof. An expert will also know how to handle areas around chimneys and flashing. Plus, renting or buying this equipment can be expensive. Don't waste your money on expensive equipment you're only going to use once in a while.
Roof Cleaning is Important
You know roof cleaning is also great for increasing your home's value and curb appeal, so let a professional tackle the job to make sure it's done properly and make the home look new. You wouldn't want to incur new damage to fix with a do-it-yourself project gone wrong.
