The weather is heating up, the days are getting longer, the bees are buzzing wildly, and many Queenslanders are getting stuck into their Spring cleaning tasks.
If you are one of them and sprucing up your home is high on your priority list, we believe your roof is the ideal place to start.
Why Spring Clean your Roof?
Your roof protects your home and its contents, so maintenance really shouldn’t be ignored.
Spring really is a fantastic time to concentrate on making your outdoor areas – including your roof – look pristine, because the weather is better than Summer with more pleasant temperatures less chance of rain.
5 Roof Spring Cleaning Items You Can Tackle
- Inspect your roof:
Carry out a roof inspection from a safe spot (NB: We do not encourage you to climb onto the roof, so please only check what you can from the ground or safely on a ladder).
If you can get into the roof cavity safely, then we also recommend checking internally for any signs of roof damage.
When inspecting your roof, we recommend looking for:
- Signs of wear and tear or visible damage such as holes or broken tiles.
- Mould or mildew
- Water damage on your ceilings
- If you’ve got a metal roof, can you see streams of light in your roof cavity?
- Trim overhanging branches:
Nearby trees can cause damage to your roof in the upcoming storm season and leaves can clog your gutters (which brings us to our next point!)
- Clean your gutters
If your gutters are jammed with debris, they won’t be able to do their job properly in the wetter months. Plus, your roof and other parts of your property will be more susceptible to damage if your gutters aren’t clear.
Are you unable to clean your gutters safely? Please contact a professional to carry out the task for you.
- Hose down your roof
Hosing down your roof with water and brushing the grime away can help to prevent your roof coating from aging prematurely.
It’s one of the best ways to increase the longevity of your roof coating, and it doesn’t cost a thing! Learn more in our blog here.
- Get your roof restored
Have you noticed damage or your roof is looking very tired?
If your roof is more than 15 years old and it’s never been restored, then the best way to reinvigorate it might be with a full roof restoration by a professional who uses our superior roof membranes, Infracote and Elastacote.
