Why book a roof cleaner through Airtasker?
As well as the obvious structural benefits to having a roof, there are untold benefits to having a clean roof on your home. The improved street appeal makes your property have a more homely appeal – something that’ll have huge dividends if you’re thinking about renting out or selling your house.
Roof cleaning can have practical applications too. Algae is one of the most common stains found on a roof and, if left untreated, this can eat through the wooden beams that keep your roof up, leading to leaks and hefty repair bills.
It’s said that prevention is better than cure, and that’s especially true in this case. Post your roof cleaning job on Airtasker and rest easy, knowing that you’re not only improving the look of your home, you’re also making it a safer place to live.

Top Roof Cleaning related questions
A clean roof has many benefits. Not only does it improve the look of your home, it can increase the time before you need to replace your roofing and also increase the value of your property if you’re trying to sell it.
One of the most common causes of roof stain is algae. This needs a combination of heat, moisture, and nutrients to grow. Mould, animal droppings, and tree litter can also lead to a dirty roof. Left untreated, algae can cover your whole roof and absorb sunlight, making your home warmer in summer, which can lead to higher electricity bills as you have to use fans and air-con more.
Most roof cleaners will be happy to clean the affected areas and save you money. They may, however, offer to apply preventative measures to the whole roof to reduce your chances of having to get your roof cleaned again soon.
Roof cleaning times depend on where you live and the immediate surroundings of your home. As a general rule, you should think about getting it done every three years, but if you notice problems such as algae or moss growth, you may need to get it done more often.
Roof cleaning can take different amounts of time, depending on the size of your roof and how dirty it is. As a general rule, you should expect the cleaning of a suburban home’s roof to take 4-6 hours.
The price of roof cleaning depends on several factors, such as the size of the area that needs to be cleaned and how steep the roof is. With Airtasker, you’re able to set the price of the job yourself. If you’re not sure where to start, have a look at previous tasks to give you an idea of the price range.
What do roof cleaners do?
Depending on the material of your roof, cleaning services may be as simple as power washing, or they may involve using natural or chemical products to remove stains.
High-pressure power washing is generally the more effective of the two techniques, but it’s also riskier. If it’s not done by a professional, it can lead to leaks or cause damage to your roof, in which case you may need repairs.
You’ll find that many roof cleaners are also happy to do other jobs while they’ve got their ladder out. These can include gutter cleaning, solar panel cleaning, or Foxtel dish removal.
While on your roof, your cleaner will also spot any damage up there and can suggest what work needs to be carried out. Depending on the job, your cleaner may complete this for you, or they may suggest a roof repair specialist who can.
Roof tile repairs
Different homes have different types of roofs, and who you hire for repair jobs can depend on what’s atop your house. Roof tile repairs are entirely different from replacing shingles or tin roofs and likely need a different contractor to carry out.
Roof cleaning needn’t be the only job you get your Tasker to complete. Gutter cleaning is a responsibility that many of us overlook, but it’s something that we should be doing regularly – perhaps four times a year if you live in a leafy suburb. Cleaning your gutters will increase their length of life and improve your drainage system.
