Your roof might be one of the last things on your spring cleaning list, but it’s just as important as everything else you intend to deep-clean. Yearly maintenance is crucial to keeping your roof healthy and strong, and it can help you catch problems before they get bigger. Here’s a guide to cleaning and inspecting your roof this spring.

Clean Debris, Mold and Mildew

Once you get onto your roof, the first thing you should do is clean off any debris you find. This will help you get a better look at your roof, and it can help you see if mold or mildew might be growing. You can either use a rake or a leaf blower to clean the debris off your roof.

Next, look for any mold or mildew hiding out under the debris. Discolored streaks might be a sign that you have dangerous bacteria growing, which can damage your health and your roof. Try to clean it off as best as you can, and contact a professional if the problem persists.

Examine Shingles, Flashing and Chimney

Wind, storms, heat and snow can all take a toll on your shingles. Look around at all the shingles on your roof and make sure none of them are coming loose. If they are, contact a professional right away.

The flashing\’s on your roof can easily pull away and cause holes for water and bugs to infiltrate your home. Check for any damage to your flashings and make sure your chimney doesn’t have any holes, mold or mildew.

Inspect Your Attic

Your attic can be an indicator of any problems you might have missed on your roof. If you notice mold or mildew in your attic, it might mean your roof has a leak. It can also be due to ventilation issues, which can also damage your roof. If you notice mold, mildew or moisture in your attic, call a professional and have it taken care of as soon as possible.

Clean the Gutters

Your gutters should be able to drain rainwater from your roof so it doesn’t stand and cause problems. Check your gutters for any drainage problems, and also look for granules in the gutters. If you have an older roof, granules could be washing off of your shingles and into the gutters. This means your shingles might be weakening, and it might be time to have them replaced. No matter what method you use, cleaning your gutters can be a demanding and time consuming job. Take breaks throughout your cleaning and make sure you aren’t getting too exhausted from the heat.
