It’s important to clean your roof every few years.  Want to do it yourself? Here’s 6 simple steps to get the job done.  All you need is a garden spray nozzle, full-body safety harness, garden hose, supplemental water pump, and a lye or other nontoxic, non corrosive roof cleaner:

  • Mix the hot water and then non corrosive cleaning product in a bucket.
  • Pour the mixture into a garden pump sprayer and strap yourself into a full-body harness.
  • Before applying the cleaner,spray the roof with water to cool it down, which will  prevent the cleaner from drying out too fast.
  • Wait about 20 minutes, then rinse.
  • Make sure you apply the sprayer in slow even strokes so you don’t miss any areas.
  • Clean shingles on a cool, humid, overcast day to ensure that the cleaner doesn’t dry too fast on the roof.
