Most of us know about the importance of pressure washing our house or cleaning out the gutters and chimney, but when was the last time you thought about your roof? If you have to ask whether or not you need to clean your roof, the answer is probably yes. But don’t worry, you’re not alone, and we’ve got some great tips to get you started.
If you don’t remember the last time your roof was cleaned, it’s probably the right time to get it done. While some roofs are in dire need of a cleaning, others are less obvious.
A few signs it might be time to clean your roof:
Does this sound familiar? The good news is that once your roof is cleaned, it should last for at least a couple years. At EliteClean, we guarantee your roof will stay clean for at least 3 years, and if it doesn’t, we’ll come out and touch it up!
Maybe you thought the moss on your shingles gave off a quaint cottage vibe, or maybe you’re convinced your roof was always that color after all. Unfortunately, a dirty roof can lead to some serious problems, both inside and outside your home.
Those streaks on your roof are actually a combination of algae, mildew, moss, and even mold. If left unchecked this can build up on your shingles, seep into the wood beneath, and even enter your home.
Cleaning your roof regularly will extend the life of your roof and cut down on the allergens in your home. You should also have your roof checked regularly by a professional to detect any early warning signs of structural damage. A few preventative measures will save you time and money down the road!
As you can probably imagine, cleaning your roof must be done carefully so you won’t harm yourself or your home. So wait a second before grabbing your ladder.
Never attempt to pressure wash your roof, and never use a service that claims they can pressure wash your roof for you. While pressure washing is great for your house’s exterior, it can severely damage your shingles.
When in doubt, it’s best to contact a professional washing service to bring out the inner beauty of your roof!
