Cleaning and Maintaining Your Commercial Roof
We all know that if you want something to last you need to maintain it. In a world where it’s so easy to set it and forget it, we take for granted the steps that need to be taken to make sure a quality product stays in the best shape it can be in. That’s why it’s so important to make sure you clean and maintain your commercial roof. You can catch issues before they become major problems! Check out these great tips to give your roof its best life.
CLEAN YOUR GUTTERS
Your gutters are here to help, but they can’t do their job if they’re clogged. When leaves and debris are blocking the flow of water from draining properly, the water can pool causing damage to your roof and fascia. Make sure your gutters are clean and working properly to prevent unwanted water damage to your commercial roof.
REGULAR COMMERCIAL ROOF INSPECTIONS
You should have your commercial roof inspected by a professional at least once a year. You should also have your roof inspected after every major storm, to go along with the yearly inspection. These inspections should take note of the following:
- Signs of leaking
- Missing or damaged roofing materials
- Branches that may be too close to your roof
- Any dirt or debris on the surface of your roof
DON’T DELAY REPAIRS
Having to repair something you already spent a mini fortune on is no one’s favorite thing to do. But delaying the inevitable will not only ensure even more damage but it will most definitely cost you even more money. Fixing the problem as quickly as possible is always the safest and best thing to do.
