If you’re a homeowner, there are probably a few expectations you have for your roof. You want it to look good, function as it should and not require too much maintenance. This can all be accomplished with regular cleaning, but it can be difficult to find the time to do the job well. With that in mind, here are some benefits to hiring a professional to clean your roof:

Safety

Most people do not have much experience spending a lot of time on roofs. Add in whatever equipment or techniques you’d use to clean the roof and you’re putting yourself in a very difficult position. If you lose your balance, you could fall and seriously injure yourself. You’re better off leaving the job to someone who spends most of their working hours on a roof.

Save Time

Life can be incredibly busy. You work most days, have to maintain the inside of your house, make dinner and do other chores. When you do have free time, do you really want to spend it learning what equipment it takes to clean your roof, climbing up there and cleaning the whole thing? Calling a professional can save you quite a bit of time as having your roof cleaned can be as simple as making a phone call.

Prevent Damage

These, along with other debris, can trap moisture on the roof, which can be an issue consider how much rain we get here in Oregon. This water can eventually seep into your home, causing mold and mildew to thrive. It can also freeze, causing cracks to form in the roof.
