We hold weekly safety meetings in compliance with OSHA standards. We express to all our employees that no job is worth injury. When working on roofs, we prevent injury by using a fall suppression system, sometimes referred to as a roof safety system. We also require our crews to wear safety glasses and nonslip boots as well as other safety gear when necessary. Even with this, if there is a lot of moss and the roof is too slick to safely walk on, we may take an alternate approach.
The proximity of neighbors:
Sacramento is known as the City of Trees, which means roofs can get pretty filthy from all the leaves and detritus coming from your own trees as well as those of your neighbors. The main problem with this dirt is that it quickly becomes mildew, mold and mud that doesn’t just go away. It has to be removed or it will continue to build up and cause costly issues to your roof. Our roof cleaners take the proper precautions to prevent a mess from blowing over to your neighbor's property.
If you do not have a good Sacramento roof cleaning service that is mindful of this, you can end up with some unhappy neighbors. It is the standard practice of Monsters Gutter to make sure not only your property but also your neighbor's properties are as tidy and free of debris as they were when we arrived. We want to help you keep good neighbors, so depending on how dirty your roof is, we calculate the time it will take to clean any blown off material from their property as well.
Depending on how close your pool is to the roof and how dirty the roof is, we may ask that you cover the pool to prevent debris from getting into it.
Pitch of your roof:
Another consideration is the pitch of your roof, meaning how steep it is. Roof pitch can be determined as a ratio of height and horizontal length. Some Victorian style roofs have a much steeper pitch which makes for a more dangerous work environment. For roofs with extreme pitches, a lift will need to be calculated into the cost. For standard roofs, it is safe enough under normal conditions.
Sacramento roof cleaning is dirty work. What we enjoy most about being roof cleaners are the immediate results that can be seen simply by looking at the roof after we have completed our work. There is no doubt that by the time we are done you will see a huge difference. However, what good is a clean roof if all the leaves, mud and mess that were cleaned off is now on the ground around your home? We always perform a cleanup that includes blowing off the debris that came down from your roof.
