Prepare Your Roof
Prior to working on your roof, we recommend that you clean out any gutter or downspouts. You should also remove any debris on the roof such as fallen branches. If you notice nay gutter issues, make sure to address those. Also trim and remove any vegetation that may be near the roof.
If water isn’t enough to clean your roof properly, we recommend creating a solution of ¼ detergent to one gallon of water. You can use mild dish soap, mild laundry detergents or even car washing soap. Do not overuse the cleaning products and make sure you follow any recommendations from your roof manufacturer to ensure you maintain your roof warranty.
It may seem like using something abrasive might be the best way to clean your roof, however, this isn’t the case. We recommend using a soft brush, sponge or even washcloth along with using the lightest touch possible that can effectively get the job done.
Prior to rinsing down your roof, we recommend letting the solution sit for about 10 minutes. You should then thoroughly rinse your entire roof with plain water.
