Why You Should Hire a Professional to Pressure Wash Your Roof

If you’re wondering whether or not you should pressure wash your roof yourself, we can already tell you that the answer is a resounding “NO!” There are several reasons you shouldn’t pressure wash your own roof. Leave it to the professionals. Read on to learn why.

The number one reason to let a professional deal with your roof is that you can avoid any injuries that can result from a pressure washer. The potential injuries from the pressure washing machine itself include cuts, burns, and abrasions. These may not seem like a big deal, but a cut from pressurized water injection can lead to serious infections and other problems. You could also slip or fall from a ladder you’re on or a freshly cleaned roof. Hire a professional instead so that you don’t have to worry about getting any of these injuries and shelling out additional money for a hospital visit.

You’re also more likely to damage your roof compared to a professional with training and experience. Professionals are familiar with the equipment and safety procedures, and you likely are not. You could cause damage to your roof and end up having to pay more in the long run for both professional roof cleaning and roof repair.

Lastly, if you try to save money by renting a pressure washer machine and attempting to do the roof cleaning yourself, you might not know how aged or badly used the pressure washing equipment really is. Hiring a professional to do your pressure washing means they’re going to use the best possible high-pressure washing equipment on your roof, which will help them get the cleaning done right the first time.

Don’t let the thought of saving a few dollars cost you even more in injuries and roof damage.
