The GutterSmiths LLC: Roof Cleaning & Maintenance
At The GutterSmiths LLC, one of the important services we offer is roof cleaning. A clean roof is important for the maintenance and life of your roof, but also important for your gutters! Over time, moss and mold can take over your roof, and the problem can travel to yours. Your gutters, if they’re clogged with leaves and other debris, will collect rainwater that then overflows down the edge of your roofing shingles, creating puddles that get covered in dirt and grime, encouraging the growth of mold and moss. By keeping your gutter systems clean and clear, you can greatly reduce the chances of moss or mold growth on your roof, which extends the lifespan of both the roof and your gutter system.
Why Clean Your Roof?
When mold, moss, and dirt build-up on your roof, it can adversely affect your home’s overall appearance. It also increases your home’s energy consumption because of heat trapped in by these building materials. Cleaning your roof may seem like a waste of time, but consider that over time the build-up on a roof will affect the overall life of your roof and your gutter system. Not only does cleaning your roof help with those problems, but it also helps reduce storm runoff that might otherwise cause build-up and overflow in your gutters. In short, washing away built-up grime, mold, mildew, and debris can pay off in more ways than one!
How Often Should I Have My Roof Cleaned?
It all depends on what type of roof you have. For example, clay and concrete tile roofs should be cleaned once a year, slate roofs should be cleaned twice a year and asphalt roof shingles and metal roofs (these roofing materials being the most common here in the Northwest) can be cleaned one to three times a year. There are different factors that can affect your roof maintenance needs like weather, trees around your home or building, and how much buildup is already on your roof. As a rule of thumb, if your roof is new, get it cleaned at least once every two years—and don’t delay cleaning until there’s an obvious problem. To keep your roof in good shape for many years to come, make sure to keep it clean by hiring The GutterSmith LLC today!
Clean Roofs Help Keep Your Gutters Clean & Maintained
Keeping your roof and gutters clean not only improves their appearance but also extends their life. If you have a roof or gutter that is dirty and/or damaged due to mold, moss growth, or buildup of debris, it’s time to call The GutterSmiths LLC for quality roof cleaning services. Having debris on your roof or in your gutters doesn’t just look bad—it prevents water from draining properly, increasing runoff. This can result in leaks and even flooding inside your home. The best way to prevent these problems is to keep your roof and gutters clean.
