Many companies employ a roofing service to clean their commercial roofs, and for good reason. Debris can fall on the roof and lead to damage and mold over time, either by blocking the gutter system or causing pooling. Depending on the type of roof you have, the simple presence of dirt and debris can also cause a lot of problems.
Generally, it is accepted that roof maintenance should be done about 1-2 times per year. Now, that isn’t necessarily a rule, and if you live in a place where there aren’t many trees and there’s not much precipitation, chances are your roof won’t get too dirty or exposed to water damage. However, in damp areas with lots of temperature changes, frequent thunderstorms, snow storms and hail, it’s a lot more important to consider cleaning your commercial roof more often.
Typically, a safe amount of time to wait between cleaning and maintenance activities should be about 6 months. During this time, you can also schedule a roof inspection to find out if your roof is structurally sound or if it requires any repair work as well. A professional commercial roofing Aurora team should be called in to ascertain any damage and provide you with vital information and helpful services to help clean, maintain and possibly repair your commercial roof as needed.
