Cleaning A Roof Before Winter


If you’re making a list to prep your home for winter you may want to add a roof cleaning to that list. If you have algae, lichen or moss on your roof, it can still grow in the cold winter months, even while you have snow on your roof! This is why it is so important to have your roof cleaned now, before the winter months. If you wait until spring you’ll find that the algae, lichen and moss have already spread aggressively across your roof.

One of the other reasons to have your roof cleaned is that our 100% biodegradable treatment is unaffected by the snow, rain or wind. If you’ve read some of our previous blogs then you know that rain and wind are often ways that algae, lichen and moss spread from roof to roof in a neighborhood. This is a possibility any time it is raining or windy. Since our treatment withstands inclement weather the fall is still a good time to have your roof cleaned.

A standard roof cleaning typically lasts for about two years. Here at Safe Roof Cleaning LLC we recognize that a roof cleaning is an investment in the value of your home which is why we offer a five year warranty on any job which includes our preventative treatment.

Why wait until Spring? Give us a call at 860-810-0019 to schedule your roof cleaning today and you’ll have one less thing to worry about when the snow flies this winter.
