If you’re planning on cleaning your roof or your gutters yourself, it’s important that you practice safety in order to prevent a fall and/or injury. So, here are some rooftop safety tips to help you out:

  • When using a ladder, always make sure that it is on level ground.
  • Make sure that your ladder is sturdy and safe for use.
  • Wear closed-toe shoes with strong traction.
  • Wear gloves when cleaning your roof or gutters.
  • Don’t try to clean your roof if it has rained or snowed recently, as wet shingles can be extremely slippery.
  • Don’t wear loose or over-sized clothing that can get caught on your ladder or that you can trip on while working.
  • Have an extra person on the ground to keep an eye on you while you work and warn you if you get too close to the edge.
  • If it’s going to be a sunny day, be sure to wear sunscreen to prevent sunburn. Also wear a hat and/or sunglasses to shield your eyes from the sun’s glare.

If you don’t have previous experience cleaning your roof and gutters, then it’s probably a good idea to have a roofing professional do this for you.
