Having your roof cleaned periodically will not only keep your home looking nicer but also extend the lifespan of your roof. Before you attempt this project on your own, consider these reasons why you should hire a professional to clean your roof.
Keep Yourself and Your Family Safe
Being on the roof is dangerous enough when it’s dry. Add water and some potentially cumbersome equipment, and you have a recipe for injury. Plus, you could put your family at risk with any accidental damage you cause.
Avoid the Expense of Cleaning Supplies
One of the biggest reasons homeowners are tempted towards DIY roof cleaning is the expense. Hiring a roofing company to clean your roof does cost money. However, when you factor in the supplies you’ll need for a thorough cleaning, from a pressure washer to special chemicals and safety equipment, cleaning your roof yourself can end up costing as much as or more than professional services.
Save Your Time for Other Pursuits
Cleaning your own roof may not be a complete waste of your time, but it’s definitely not the best way to spend a weekend. To make matters worse, as an amateur, you could spend hours on the roof without getting it fully clean. Mold, mildew, and algae can be very difficult to remove, and it’s easy to damage your roof in the attempt to do so. Better to spend your time doing things you love.
When a professional cleans your roof or performs other routine maintenance, they get a good look at the condition of your roof. This allows them to spot any looming problems and recommend a solution, which in turn helps you avoid an emergency situation.
