They’re not often given much thought but the roofs of our homes are extremely important. The roofs on our homes act as a first line of defense against weather, climate, and even pests. They are essential for both our safety and comfort and therefore deserve serious consideration when we set about thoroughly cleaning our homes. Sadly however most of us are going to place 98% of our focus on the interiors of our homes; making sure our floors, counter tops, and fixtures are clean. Left neglected long enough, a roof will begin to break down and may become a home to pests. Moreover, neglected roofs become far less efficient at controlling the climate within a home which leads to greater AC/heating use and more money out of our pockets. Aesthetically speaking, keeping our roofs clean keeps the curb appeal of our homes high and it can also help protect a roof from more serious wear and tear.
