Roof Cleaning: the only guide you need


Roof cleaning is pretty straightforward once you understand the right steps to follow, but it isn’t a job for people who are busy (because it is time-consuming), or for those who may not want to walk around on a wet, slippery roof.

Nevertheless, we’re going to show you the ropes so you will have a general idea of what roof cleaning involves. Once you’ve read about what’s required, you’ll be able to decide whether or not it is appropriate to do it yourself or outsource the task to a professional roof cleaning company in Jacksonville. 

It’s generally safer to pay someone else who is a pro to take care of things for you. However, it is possible to do it yourself in a safe and efficient manner, as long as you have a good pressure cleaner and put safety first.

Now, we’d like to talk about the best way to get the job done…

Purchase a Roof Cleaning Solvent

There are a lot of roof cleaning solvents on the market and you’ll be able to find a good one online if you desire. Hardware stores and pressure washing supply companies around Jacksonville should also sell these products. You will have tons of choices.

Once you apply the solvent with your pressure cleaner (you have your own pressure cleaner, right?), rinse off the roof gently but thoroughly enough so that no chemical solvent remains, and you’ll enjoying a cleaner roof in no time flat.

So, it’s really a three-step process. Clean up any debris that is on your rooftop and discard it. Then apply the solvent to the rooftop as the instructions tell you to. After it sits for the allotted period of time, rinse it off.

If you do decide to outsource the job to a Jacksonville pressure cleaning company, you will find that it is possible to get a much more comprehensive cleaning. The best roof cleaning contractors will have years of experience and will bring the right machines, tools and solvents with them. They may also offer other related services, such as house and driveway pressure cleaning.

You should use a safety harness which holds you fast to the roof if you’re planning on working up high. People have fallen, and it is very preventable.

Now that you know the steps, you are ready to move forward and clean your roof. You won’t need to prepare much as long as you have all the tools and supplies. However, you should make sure to have the right ladder and safety equipment.
