Over the years, roofs get mossy, streaky, stained and dirty. There’s really nothing you can do about that, but what you can do to fix it is to have it professionally cleaned. In the interest of saving money, you may assume you can just do it yourself, but think again. A roof cleaning professional is definitely the way to go. They can actually save you money and time in the long run because they have the equipment and techniques to get the job done right the first time, and quickly.
Here are four top reasons why a pro should clean your roof.
1. Professional Roof Cleaners Save You Time
If you’re not too keen on wasting an entire weekend washing your roof, hire a pro to do it for you. What may have taken you all day or weekend to complete, they can do in a couple of hours. So, go ahead. Relax by the pool, go to the cookout, read a book or spend time with the family. Your time is important, especially when you work hard all week. And as we all know, time is money.
2. Professional Roof Cleaners Take All the Risk
Cleaning your own roof is dangerous, especially if your entire knowledge of power washing came from a 10-minute tutorial on YouTube. Falls are a big risk, and as you can well assume, falling from the roof or even from a ladder two stories up can lead to severe injury or even death. Let the pros do it, as they come equipped with all the latest safety equipment to do it right.
3. Professional Roof Cleaners Clear Away Algae Growth
Roof is the ideal environment for algae, moss, and lichen growth. These organisms love moist places with crevices to hide in. Regular roof cleaning washes away those unsightly visitors, boosting your curb appeal and adding to the life span of your roof.
4. Professional Roof Cleaners Prevent Roof Damage
From leaks to cracked tiles, roof cleaning (when done right!) can actually prevent damage such as cracks as well as leaks. Amateur pressure washers can cause water to get underneath the shingles, leading to leaks in your attic and elsewhere in the home. In the same vein, too much pressure can crack shingles or cause them to fall off. The pros know exactly which techniques to use (soft wash), as well as the right pressure (low) and detergent (safe on surfaces).
