Roof cleaning is a dangerous job and is best left to a pro. The shingles can become very slippery when the roof cleaner is being applied. Walking the roof can get treacherous.

Roof cleaning companies can handle the work better because they have the proper equipment, cleaners, and methods that are necessary to do the work.
