Four Spring Cleaning Tips For Your Roof

As a homeowner, taking care of your roof is one of your biggest responsibilities. After all, the roof of your home protects it from the elements outside, keeps your home energy efficient, and more. One important step to taking care of your roof is performing spring maintenance. Here are four spring cleaning tips for your roof to take into consideration:

  1. Inspect for Winter Damages: During the winter, heavy storms, wind, and snow can take a huge toll on your roof. Once this season ends, it's important to inspect for any damages to your roof that it may have left behind. Some specific damages to look for include punctures, tears, or holes. You also want to check for pools of water or torn shingles that need to be addressed. If you notice any of these things, hire a professional for further inspection and repairs. 
  2. Remove Built-Up Debris: During the winter season, a great deal of debris is going to pile up on the roof, as well. It's important that this is removed, especially since it's going to prevent water from staying stuck in one spot underneath the debris potentially causing mildew and mold growth. Plus, with the spring showers coming up, you want to be sure that the rain water can easily drain from your roof instead of getting trapped by the built-up debris. 
  3. ​Rinse the Roof: Aside from removing the debris, you want to also give it a quick rinse with the hose. Do not use a power washer, though, since this can damage the roof. When you rinse it with the hose, you remove the little debris that you couldn't easily remove with a broom or your gloved hands. On top of this, you can see whether or not there are problems with drainage and address it before it becomes a problem once the spring showers arrive. 
  4. Hire Professionals When Needed: If cleaning the roof is not something you can do yourself because you don't feel comfortable on the roof or you don't have the proper tools, then do not hesitate to hire the professionals. Professionals can provide a thorough spring cleaning service so that your roof is in perfect condition for the rest of the year before another inspection is needed. 

When you consider these four tips, spring cleaning your roof is going to be successful and lead to less worries about the condition of your roof and future repairs during other times of the year when you won't want to deal with it.
