Roof cleaning is not your cup of tea

  1. 1. Roof Cleaning Is Not Your Cup of Tea One important part of roof maintenance should include periodic roof cleaning; the habit of looking over the roof from time-to-time will help you know in advance if there is a leak or other issue. No pressure roof cleaning will get debris off the area to help prevent damage. It is always in your best interest to call on professional roof cleaning company for this job because it can be difficult and dangerous. Roof cleaning technicians are highly trained to work on all types of roofs in a safe way and they know how to handle the job. Just be sure to hire a company or group that has experience. They will spray the roof with a cleaning solution and rinse the roof; since the shingles become slick during the process it adds to the danger of the job. If as a homeowner you decide to take roof cleaning into own hands you are reminded to be very careful. Perhaps the best thing you can try to do is not necessarily working on the entire roof, but streaks that may have been created. The average homeowner needs a ladder as well as a helper when doing any roof cleaning job. Then you will need a cleaning solution, which can be made at home or purchased at the store. A 2 gallon container covers about 100-180 sq. ft. so for an average roof you will need to refill it a few times till the roof cleaning process is over. You will also require a 50 foot watering hose and garden sprayer if you are going to take up this job; you also want to make sure that you use a protective mask that has cartridges, which will help protect your lungs because the cleaning solution can be harmful. Many times gusts of wind land the solution into the eyes which can be damaging to say the least as these are strong chemicals. This protective eye gear and masks are essential. If when doing roof cleaning any of the solution lands on your skin, your helper should rinse it off immediately. As you may already have seen, there is a lot of work that is involved in high quality no pressure roof cleaning apart from being very careful to ensure that you use the right chemicals, you must also ensure that they are mixed in the exact proportions. You must also remember that you must be extremely careful around the slippery wet shingles and if the stain is gone then the job entire process must be repeated again. However, if the roof is too slippery for you to be able to complete the job, ask for professional roof cleaning experts to step in. As this is not something that is done every day, a small onetime cost can ensure that you have a clean roof and they can even check for leaks and cracks.
