It’s a common misconception that roofs don’t need to be cleaned. After all, they’re up high and out of sight. However, just like your gutters, your roof needs to be cleaned on a regular basis to prevent water damage and keep it in good condition. In this blog post, we’ll discuss the three main reasons you should clean your new roof, as well as how to do it safely and effectively. Keep reading for more information!
How to prevent roof water damage
To prevent roof water damage, you should have your rain gutters cleaned regularly. This will ensure that the runoff from melting snow and other precipitation does not pool on top of your shingles, which can lead to leaks into your home or business. Additionally, it’s also important for homeowners who live in areas with heavy rainfall (like Seattle!) to have their roofs inspected at least once a year for any damage that may have been caused by excessive water accumulation.
How often should I clean gutters?
The frequency with which you should clean your gutters depends on a few factors, including the type of material they’re made out of, how much debris collects in them, and where you live. If your gutters aren’t filled with pine needles or other types of debris that tend to clog up drains quickly then it may not be necessary for you to clean them as frequently but if they do collect a lot more than leaves from your trees then once every three months would probably suffice!
Benefits of having a clean roof
A clean roof is essential for preventing water damage in your home or business. If you don’t get it cleaned regularly, then the runoff from melting snow and other precipitation can pool on top of shingles that are already saturated with water—and when this happens, leaks are more likely to occur inside your building.
How to clean your roof safely and effectively
To clean your roof safely and effectively, you should first remove any debris that might be blocking the gutters by using a hose or broom (both methods will work). Once this step is complete then all of these items need to go into separate bins so they don’t get lost during cleanup. Afterward, you can start scrubbing away any stains on the shingles using a sponge or toothbrush dipped in warm water mixed with dish soap (but don’t use bleach!).

3 Reasons (that don’t make sense) To Have A Clean Roof
Your roof is your home’s most valuable asset. A clean, healthy and well-maintained house creates a feeling of peace that can’t be matched by anything else in the world! Here are 3 reasons why you should take care if this important structure:
- To keep out harmful weather elements like rainwater or snowfall which could cause rot at its core;
- For increased property value through aesthetically pleasing aesthetics such as color filtering sunlight entering homes’ rooms along with reducing cooling costs due to evaporation effects on heat retention within buildings themselves–all while making life more comfortable inside (and outside!) !!!
- To protect against costly losses caused by people not taking care to secure their homes and roofs against inclement weather.
