It’s spring time once again in Surrey, and homeowners around the area are starting their spring cleaning routines. Although most people think of spring cleaning as putting away the holiday décor and cleaning the interior of their homes, homeowners should also think about conducting a little spring cleaning on their roofs. With that in mind, here are a few spring cleaning tips from respected roofers in Surrey:

Work with a Buddy

Ask a friend or a family member to help you keep the ladder steady as your climb up and down. This is to prevent any shifts in balance that may cause you to fall off. Similarly, having someone around while you work assures you that there’s someone around to call emergency services in the event of a mishap.

Alternatively, you can use a pair of binoculars to scan your roof for any issues. Simply take note of all the problems you find and hand it over to a respected roofing service, like Brunwin Professional Roofing Services, Ltd., to give them a better idea of the work that needs to be done.
