Over time, your roof shingles have the potential to become extremely dirty. From inclement weather to leaves and branches, your roof takes quite a bit of abuse.
It’s important to clean your roof every so often, as doing so can help increase its lifespan.
Here are some tips for cleaning roof shingles:
· Mix bleach and hot water
· Add the mixture to a garden sprayer
· Spray the cleaner on the roof, one section at a time, and let it sit for 10 minutes
· Scrub the section of the roof that has the cleaner on it
· Use a garden hose or pressure washer to rinse the cleaned area
Depending on how much dirt and debris has accumulated on your roof, it may be necessary to consult with a roofing contractor about the next steps. It’s possible that you’re better off opting for a new roof, as opposed to cleaning your old one.
If you come to find that your roof shingles need cleaned, follow the tips above or hire a professional to tackle this project on your behalf. Either way, your roof will look better when the job is complete.
