So you’ve called up a Lakeland roof cleaning company to take care of your roof’s exterior. It was only a matter of time, after all. The black and green stuff on the roof was starting to worry you, and it HAS been a long time since you’ve even thought about having the roof properly cleaned.

However, it’s been so long since you’ve had the roof cleaned that you’ve forgotten how the entire process goes and what you should do to prepare. Should you be providing materials for the cleaning? Are you supposed to give them a ladder for the roof? But you don’t have a ladder! To put your mind at rest, here are some simple ways to prepare for a soft washing to make the Lakeland roof cleaning team’s job easier.

Make sure that your pets are out of the way

One of the first things that you should do to prepare your home for a cleaning is to make sure that for the duration of the process, your pets are out of the way. Soft washing uses chemicals to thoroughly get rid of any signs of mold and algae on your roof, and the last thing you want is for these to drip on your pets.

Clear all decorative lawn ornaments and furniture

Again, this has to do with the chemicals used in the soft washing process. Make sure that your lawn ornaments and furniture are cleared from the drip line to make sure that none of the chemicals accidentally drip on these. Also, make sure that the driveway and walkway are cleared to make it easier for the roof cleaning team to get to your roof.

Water your plants and lawn

This may seem odd, but you should also water your lawn and plants the night before a roof cleaning, especially those located along the drip line of the roof. If you water your plants, they will not end up drinking the water that drips from the roof cleaning process, which goes a long way to make sure that nothing happens to your plants.
