Spring cleaning doesn’t just refer to cleaning out your closets and purging the stuff that you don’t use anymore. It is also important to spend some time outside cleaning the exterior of your property to maintain the value and enhance the curb appeal. Many people like to spend time cleaning outside before the hot summer temperatures make outdoor work less desirable, hoping to save some money doing their own exterior labor, but the reality is some outside tasks are more difficult and dangerous than others. This is especially true when looking at the cleaning and maintenance of your roofing.
While it is tempting to attempt cleaning your roof on your own, there are several reasons why it is worth taking some time to investigate your options to discover what local roof cleaning companies have to offer before you get your ladder out to climb onto your roof.
The tools necessary for safe and effective exterior cleaning can become quite expensive. As with most things, the better the tools, the higher the initial investment, and if you are only cleaning your exterior once or twice a year, it can take years to break even on the cost. Not to mention you’ll need to store the equipment! Experienced professionals know the right tools to use for the job and typically have the best equipment available to them, which means your roof cleaning will be safer and more effective.
There are many times when you should defer to experts for hard tasks. When your home requires electrical rewiring, repiping, or rooftop cleaning in difficult areas, it’s best to let the experienced teams handle the tasks. For the novice rooftop cleaner, it can be a lengthy, frustrating, and often frightening job. Most homeowners know to remove leaves and debris, but do not know how to spot minor damage that could grow into a bigger problem.
Professional cleaners don’t just clean your roof with the proper tools; they are trained to inspect for hidden damage while they are cleaning. Hiring experts also helps prevent property damage that is not covered by homeowners insurance and lowers the risk of your roof being damaged during the cleaning process, which will cost you even more money in the long run.
Lack of expertise and high quality tools often means that it takes you longer to do the work than the professionals. Allowing professionals to do the more difficult task of roof cleaning frees you up to do other tasks around the house that will not take you as much time or expertise. It also means that you are not using your time off from work to complete tasks better left to the experts.
Roof cleaning is more than just removing debris, moss, and algae and cleaning out the gutters; it is a yearly opportunity to carefully inspect the condition of the surface of one of the most important structural parts of your home.
