When it comes to roof cleaning there are many common misconceptions that can easily result in dangerous consequences if they are carried out. Since your roof is the first line of defense against the elements it stands to reason that you would want to have the best results possible. Our teams at YourLocal have had many years of experience and extensive knowledge on roof cleaning and in this blog post we will be covering the most reoccurring issues and what our teams recommend.
One of the frequent problems with roof care tends to be the issue of algae, lichen and moss build up. We have seen that in severe cases, were the roof has been neglected for an extended period of time, the build up has caused blockages in guttering resulting in the collapse of the roof. Unfortunately this is a more common issue than you might think and it can be easily avoided by regular roof treatments.
Roof Care Is No DIY Job
Another very common issue is that people assume that roof care is a simple job that can be executed by anyone. This is a very harmful idea. The two main problems with this is that regularly people often miss crucial parts when cleaning or they view the problem from down on the ground, often not seeing the dangerous patches of buildup that have to potential to cause leaks. Which then forces you to pay for expensive repairs that could have been avoided.
Recommendations From Our Teams
One of the top recommendations from our teams is that the safest way to go about roof care is to have a professional do it. As illustrated above if you don’t know what you are doing there is always the risk of missing something vital. Whereas if you have someone who knows all of the ins and outs of roof cleaning, the chances of them missing parts that have the potential to cause issues is very slim.
