There is a lot of work to be done before summertime arrives. That being said, it’s easy to forget about your roof during this time, which most likely contains debris and moisture from previous seasons.
If left too long, the debris can become a breeding habitat for mold, mildew, and algae – all of which can ruin the roof’s surface over a span of months. Here are three reasons why you should clean your roof before warmer weather arrives.
- You’ll beat the summer heat. It can be dreadful, as well as dangerous, working out in the summer heat. You’ll have more time to be outdoors during cooler months, as you’ll be able to work in late morning and afternoon without the worry of getting too hot.
- It will cool your home. When your roof is dirty, it absorbs more heat thanks to the dark surface formed by a buildup of algae, mold, and mildew. If you have an attic, the heat will move from the roof to the attic, heating up your home and causing you AC bills to elevate.
- Your home will be more appealing to the eye. If you’re planning on selling your home or if you just enjoy a nice view, cleaning your roof is a great way to improve curb appeal. It will show you keep your home in great condition as far as maintenance is concerned, which is great for those looking to sell.
