Today, we decided to focus on our readers who are looking to hire professional roof cleaners and simply want to get the most out of the company. W’eve compiled a short but informative list of 5 tips that will certainly help your and your family out.

Book Early

As soon as you do your research and settle on the roof cleaning company that you want to hire, pick up the phone or stop by their office. If you know that you want your roof cleaned, try to make an appointment 3 weeks – 1 month in advance if you can wait this long. There are several distinct advantages to booking early and setting up your roof cleaning weeks in advance. For starters, it gives you the flexibility to potentially look at other companies and cancel without having to pay a fee. Secondly, when you book early, you won’t have to worry about drastic price increases due to your late request. For instance, if you need a roof cleaning company to get your roof cleaned right away, they may very well charge you a fee to make you priority while other customers wait. In essence, booking early will give you the flexibility to need to negotiate your price and it will allow you to avoid last minute price increases that some companies are notorious for. Some companies assume that because you need your roof clean in a hurry, you will be willing to pay whatever it takes.

Be Knowledgable

When you’re knowledgeable about a product, it reduces the chances that a company will be able to take advantage of you. Sure there are some roof cleaning companies out there that will give you honest advice and pricing. Unfortunately, not all of the companies that you encounter will be ones you can trust. This is one of the main reasons why you should learn as much about the roof cleaning industry as you possibly can. How much does it usually cost to clean a roof your size? What are some environmentally friendly products that companies typically use? Is there anything that customers typically do that can cause the cost of cleaning their roof to increase? When you hire a company, make them feel as though you are interviewing them for the job. Customers who appear to be naive and desperate are often given mediocre service and exceptionally high prices.

Be Nice!

Are you a difficult customer? If so, your attitude is a surefire way to get a second-class effort from the company that you hire. No, we are not saying that you have to beg the company to do their jobs, but sometimes a simple “thank you” can go a long way. When the staff arrives at your home to clean your roof, be sure to ask if there’s anything you can do to make their jobs easier. Perhaps have some bottles of water waiting for them and show them where the guest bathroom is incase of them need to use it while working to beautify your home. Remember, when you hire someone, you’re essentially their boss and their job is to please you. Wouldn’t you work harder and contribute more if your boss treated you well?

Keep Yourself Busy

When you hire a professional roof cleaning company, it’s imperative that you give them enough time and space to do what they do best. While it is okay for you to offer water or a small snack, don’t try to start deep conversations or help physically in any way by starting to clean the roof yourself. You may end up doing much more damage than good and you may actually prolong the roof cleaning process. So regardless of whether you go out with family and friends or you head to the office to get some work done, do whatever it takes to keep yourself busy and out of the way.

Plan Ahead

Nothing makes a company more productive than the possibility of gaining a long term customer. So when you book your first roof cleaning session, ask about ways to maintain your clean roof. Inquire about using some of the other services that roof cleaning companies typically offer as well. These are things such as power washing for the sidewalks and driveways of your home. If you make it known that you are looking to busily a relationship with the company for many years to come as a loyal customer, they may even throw in some discounts and/or promise future savings.
