Starting Roof Cleaning Business

Starting a Roof Cleaning Business

One of the most important educational things you can do when starting  Roof Cleaning Business is getting actual hands on training.  You need to learn how to actually clean a roof.  And how to properly protect the property such as the plants and surrounding landscape.

At the Roof Cleaning School, we provide you with actual hands on training. This means you actually do the cleaning, under close supervision.  You learn how to clean many different surfaces, with the equipment in YOUR hand.

While sitting in a classroom for many hours going through a curriculum in a book will help you to learn much about our industry, cleaning mixes, equipment, safety, and more, you will never learn how to actually clean a roof or house without the actual hands on training, and doing it yourself with training as you go.

Our training starts off ON THE ROOF with you learning proper spraying techniques to clean a roof using LOW PRESSURE. After you have cleaned an entire roof you will then participate in cleaning other areas.  The home itself, driveway, and if available a pool deck, wood deck, and more.

Starting Roof Cleaning Business
