Here in the Pacific Northwest, roof cleaning is an important part of home maintenance. We all know what kind of weather the autumn and winter seasons bring, and for a lot of us, that means a messy roof covered in soggy leaves and colonizing spores. A filthy roof isn’t just an eyesore, though. It can also mean expensive damage to your entire home. Stay on the watch for warning signs like:

  • Masses of leaves collecting on your roof
  • Stains appearing on your roof or moving on to your siding
  • Evidence of water damage through your ceiling

Our roof cleaners have the experience and skill necessary to restore your roof without damaging it. We remove any debris we find, and use special cleaners to gently but thoroughly remove stains that have been left by moss and other pests. Check out these pictures of our team in action!

Roof Cleaning FAQs—Find Answers to Roof Questions

When does my roof need to be cleaned?

Your roof may have to be cleaned somewhat often if you live somewhere with a lot of tall trees. The natural bluster of the local weather is enough to send leaves and small sticks flying all season long. Pests like moss can also travel on the wind, and colonize your roof upon landing.

For the safety of your roof, it’s best to have it cleaned at least once per year. Many homeowners choose to clean their roofs in the spring or early summer, so they can enjoy a brilliant home exterior for a few months before the rain picks up again. If you notice that there is a lot of debris on your roof, you may want to take care of it immediately.

Why does my roof need to be cleaned?

Your roof is designed to be one of the toughest parts of your home, but that doesn’t mean that it isn’t vulnerable to damage. Water damage is the most important concern, since enough persistent water damage can easily penetrate your shingles and roof and start leaking into your home. Fixing a roof with this kind of damage can be incredibly expensive.

Don’t overlook the dangers of growths either. As long as moss isn’t removed, it will continue to grow and leave larger, deeper stains on your roof. These growths also contribute directly to the same kind of water damage you’ll experience if you leave masses of wet leaves to rot on your roof.

Can I clean my roof myself?

Cleaning your roof yourself is definitely a possibility if you have the equipment to safely work on your roof and the agents you’ll need to clean off moss and the resulting stains. If you need a temporary solution, it can be simpler and safer to try to hose your roof from the ground. This won’t be effective for large piles or stains, but you can always choose a professional service when spring rolls around.
