A house’s roof is one of its most important elements because it protects against the weather, external intrusions by animals and other people, and keeps the rooms in the house warm. For this reason, if we want to keep a roof in good condition for as long as possible, it is essential to carry out regular maintenance and cleaning work on the roof and covering. Taking care of these parts of the building is very important if we want to keep roofs in good condition for as long as possible.
The ideal would be to carry out an inspection at least once a year, including cleaning the roof and gutters, which is the only way to avoid having to resort to more invasive and undoubtedly more expensive interventions. It is often the case that just one broken tile or a blocked gutter can cause serious damage if not fixed in time. In worst case scenarios, seepage caused by poor roof management can lead to major structural damage.
FAQs: Frequently asked questions
Once on the roof, problems that need to be addressed include:
- the formation of stains on the tiles
- the presence of moss and weeds
- leaf deposits on the inside of the gutters.
Cleaning the roof does not outwardly seem a difficult operation to perform alone, but it does require having to be done at a high height, so it is better to avoid unnecessary risks and rely instead on specialised companies equipped with all the safety devices required for working at height.

Don’t worry if your house does not have one, during the inspection we will assess how and where to insert the fall arrest system, an anchoring device that operators attach themselves to using a harness and ropes.
One of the most common problems with roofs is the formation of stains, often due to weathering or dampness, and moss covering the tiles. In these cases, there are two alternatives to deal with the problem:
- Manually, using only a brush with hard bristles and warm water. Before starting the work, as much plant matter as possible should be removed so the gutters do not become clogged during water runoff.
- Using a pressure washer is certainly a quicker approach and is suitable for wider areas. It is necessary to take into consideration that water pressure can be very strong, therefore it is recommended to have an expert’s help to avoid any damages during the intervention.
We at EdiliziAcrobatica are experts in this type of intervention and, thanks to double safety rope technology, you can be assured of a rapid and cost-effective intervention.
