Steps to Clean the Roof

Everyone must have their own criteria for their dream home. But one sure thing they didn't want was a leak on the roof. This will potentially cause damage to your home. Therefore you must know how to clean the roof of the house. Water and ceiling that infiltrate the ceiling and walls of the house will produce stains that are difficult to remove. Moreover, you have to put a bucket or basin under the leak location so that the falling water does not wet the floor.

Therefore, it is important for you to immediately resolve the leak. Previously, of course you must first know the cause of the leak in your home. The more specific the problem you encounter, the easier you can be to identify the appropriate solution. One way that you can apply is to clean the roof. Here are some tips on cleaning the roof of the house so it is safe from leaks.

1. Check the Shower or Roof Gutters

Cleaning the roof of a house can start from checking the shower or gutters. These components are usually installed to drain the water that comes out. Unfortunately, gutters are the most difficult component to fix. When flowing water, there is usually dirt that is carried along by the wind and so it clogs the exit hole. That is why you must check gutters on the roof at least every six months. Gutters that have never been cleaned will make dirt accumulate so that it closes the hole. Water cannot flow properly so it seeps down and causes leaks.

2. Moldy ceilings

When a house experiences a leak, falling water will infiltrate through the ceiling. As a result, the ceiling of your home will be moldy. If left unchecked, the fungus will spread to the surface of the other ceiling and cause the material inside to be damaged.

Especially if you have installed the ceiling since several decades ago, of course the condition is no longer prime. The material is also less durable when compared to the ceiling today. Therefore, immediately check your ceiling from now on. Do not wait for the ceiling to be damaged first.

3. Clean the Moss

Look at the roof of your house, have all parts been exposed to sunlight? Roofs that are not exposed to sunlight will tend to have more humid conditions that trigger the growth of moss. This can make the roof become weathered and hollow. As a result, your roof has a very wide range of leaks. Therefore, cleaning the roof from moss can help you deal with leaks in your home. The simplest way you can do this is by using the scrubbing technique. Rub the moss on the roof with a downward motion so the moss can peel off and fall immediately. Always do the scrubbing technique in the same direction so that the roof remains in its position. Another method is to use certain power washing techniques or water pressures. You can adjust water with a power between 1200-2000 psi. Water the water with a downward movement.

4. Check Roofing Flashing

The flashing component is located under the connection between the roof and the ceiling. The material is made of aluminum which can function to prevent water from seeping into the house. Basically, all flashing is designed as a waterproof component, but does not rule out the possibility for them to experience the oxidation process.

As a result, flashing is worn and rusty. Not only that, the damp ceiling can also cause flashing to become loose causing water leakage. Check that your flashing has started to rust. You can smear it with rusty putty according to the required level.

5. Decaying fascia boards

Not surprisingly, your fascia board starts to rot, bearing in mind that this component made of wood is located behind the shower so it's not very visible. Exposure to light can damage the fascia board slowly, especially when it's raining. Water trapped when clogged up will make your fascia board worse. To fix this, you can test for signs of decay by pressing the fascia board using a dull screwdriver tip. If your fascia board breaks, you must replace it with a new one.

Like the term that says to provide an umbrella before it rains, you can start checking the condition of your roof from now on to avoid leakage.

So and good luck.
