Should I be concerned about my plants and landscaping?

Short answer: Yes.

Roof cleaning always carries an inherent risk to your landscaping and plant life.  We can't guarantee that some of your landscaping will not be affected by the cleaning process (and you should seriously question any roof cleaning contractor who does make such aguarantee...)

What we do guarantee is that we'll take every precaution possible to protect your plant life.  We also guarantee that if something negative does happen after your cleaning service, we will be there for you to help you get it rectified.

In order to mitigate as much risk as possible, we use a variety of strategies to protect landscaping and plant life:

  • Collection and/or diversion of run-off.
  • Dilution of over spray and run off before, during and after the job.
  • We apply a neutralizing agent to soil and plant life where necessary.
  • Coverage of delicate plant life with breathable tarps.

These precautions protect your plants as much as possible.  In the event that you do notice any issues after service, such as wilting or browning leaves, wilting flowers, etc., please give us a call.  We promise to take care of you!

We just need a few simple things from you prior to your service:

  • If we are only cleaning your outside windows, please make sure all windows and doors are shut tightly and locked up. We wouldn't want to get any water inside your house!
  • If we are only cleaning your outside windows, please discuss any exterior screens with our scheduler.  Most outside screens need to be removed from inside, so we'll have to co-ordianate with you on that.
  • Please make sure your pets are inside during the service.  We don't offer pet bathing, so you'll have to call someone else for that 🙂
  • We will need access to a functional exterior water source.

What if it rains on the day of my scheduled service?

In order to stay on schedule, we do work in light rain situations.  We find that it's rare for rain to affect clean windows, but it does happen sometimes.  No worries!  We offer the area's only 2 Day Rain Guarantee.  If rain spots up your windows within two days of service, we will come back and touch up as needed at not cost to you!
