Spring is here, which means it’s time for a little spring cleaning on your roof. Do you know what to look for when performing spring roof maintenance? Follow these 4 tips from Roof King to keep your roof in peak condition this season.
Use your leaf blower
After the melting snow and spring rain showers have taken their toll, your roof will have been exposed to plenty of moisture. When this moisture gets trapped under leaves, serious water damage can occur. Use your leaf blower, or carefully rake leaves off the roof to keep the shingles intact.
Check your gutters
Gutter cleaning and inspection is an essential part of preparing your home for spring and summer. Clean out all leaves and debris so that water can drain easily out of the gutters. In addition, check the sturdiness of the gutter system, and repair any loose or damaged components.
Inspect for mold or mildew
Mold and mildew are common for residential roofs in Charlotte, and they can cause extensive damage. If you notice strange colored splotches or moss on your shingles, there’s a good chance that mold and algae have made a home as well. Call Roof King for professional cleaning to rid your roof of mold.
