You don’t have to let algae, dirt, mold, and other debris build up on your roof. You can get professional roof cleaning services instead. However, you’ll want to be as prepared as possible before your roof cleaning contractor arrives. According to Forbes, your contractor may charge an additional 10 cents per square foot for cleaning the roofing on a two or three-story house. In addition to knowing what to expect from costs, you’ll also want to make other preparations. Here are some other ways you can prepare.

Clear a Perimeter

While these professionals are careful when working on your roof, you should still clear a perimeter around the home so nothing gets damaged if something falls on it from that height. Whether you have things in your driveway, front lawn, or patio, clear it out of the way. Clearing a perimeter makes it easier for roofers to access your home and park their van.

Move Cars From the Driveway

Do you have any vehicles parked in your driveway? Do you have some parked out on your street? Now is the time to put all your vehicles into your garage so your roof cleaning contractor has a place to park their vehicle. They’ll need enough room to remove any cleaning tools and ladders out of their vehicle, so give them enough space in the driveway or in front of the house.

Alert Neighbors

Depending on how much cleaning work has to be done on your roof, it may be a noisy process. Be a good neighbor and let everyone else know about the roofing work that’s about to take place. If you’re a member of an HOA, you may be required to alert the membership association you’re about to have roofing work done. You may also need their permission before you schedule the roof cleaning service.

Handle the Little Ones

Having strangers in your home can be stressful for your younger kids and pets. Roofing work can create enough noise to disturb the little ones. If you have an anxious dog or kids that may get in the way of the workers, it’s best to find something for them to do outside the home or play in the basement. If you have friends and family nearby, it might be a good day for your little ones to spend with their grandparents or have a play date.
