ROOF CLEANING TIPS, GUILFORD CT

In this article ROOF CLEANING TIPS, Guilford Ct, we will show you a few steps to take to have a nice clean roof!  Be sure to be very careful on the roof and have good shoes on for better safety.

Your main tool is a power washer.  You can rent one by the day at most rental centers – this will help make the job go faster and more efficient!  The power from a pressure washer can cause unwanted damage to your roof, so be sure to select a tip that has medium pressure.  You can adjust easier starting with a medium tip, you can change tips to increase or decrease the pressure.  Be sure to make sure you have solid footing and you are always standing on a dry part of the roof, a wet roof can be slippery.

Stand at the highest point of the roof, keep the pressure washed aimed down the roof, keep the tip a little distance from the roof surface, about a foot and half to two feet.  Note:  Do not aim the power washer up the roof, this causes water to get pushed under the shingles causing leaks into your home!  So, always always point down!  As get going, clean a few shingles at a time, take your time.  Make sure all the shingles stay securely attached as you move on.

Note:  If you have a roof that is covered in mildew, dirt or moss you can pre-treat the roof by spraying on some cleanser first and then power washing it off.
