So you have just purchased a new ladder. You’ve been on your roof before, and you think roof cleaning looks easy

It’s easy to assume that no special skills are required and that anyone can do it. But cleaning a roof actually involves many hazards.

Having a roof cleaned is considered one of the most dangerous services provided to your home. It’s especially dangerous if you don’t hire a professional.

Your personal safety always comes first!
So many homeowners think they can simply rent the equipment and tackle the job themselves – but these weekend do-it-yourselfers lack crucial experience, which can have disastrous results!

Some homeowners think, “I’ve gone up on the roof to hang Christmas lights, what’s the difference?” Walking on a wet roof and managing bulky cleaning equipment is nothing like stringing lights.

Slips and falls can be debilitating, and they often result in a trip to the ER.

Even non-professionals don’t have the necessary proficiency in climbing ladders and making the step transition from the ladder to the roof!

Most non-professionals that are hired do not carry liability insurance. (Ad-Ler Roofing is fully covered.)

Did you know a handyman doesn’t have to have a license to clean your roof ? (But it’s a different story when it comes to repairing your roof, then he is required to have a license!)

Damage to your roof can become a reality when it isn’t cleaned properly.

In addition, to the personal dangers of trying to handle roof cleaning on your own, there are also many potential threats to your roof.

  • Using the wrong chemicals, can cause thousands of dollars of damage. Too much water pressure on certain kinds of roofs can etch or degrade the tile, and can blow out grout work.
  • An inexperienced person can make a wrong step on the roof, this can break a tile and puncture the underlayment, which leads to leaks and water damage to your home.
  • Many homeowners make the mistake of deciding not to do the job themselves but also not hiring a professional – instead, they turn to an unlicensed handyman — anybody with a pickup truck. Unfortunately, this comes with its own set of liabilities.
