Why Putting Up Your Exterior Holiday Lights With A Dirty Roof Is A Bad Idea

Friday, November 5, 2021

November marks the start of the holiday season. In just a few short weeks, your guests will be arriving to your home to celebrate Thanksgiving and Hanukkah. As you think about putting your holiday lights up, it is important to consider the surface that you are putting them on – your ROOF that has emerged from the summer and early Fall with dirt, mildew, black streaks and algae growth. What’s worse is that you are actually illuminating the problem making a dirty roof visible with the lights shining on it -- even at night!

Here are the top 3 reasons why you should consider having Patriot SoftWash professionally clean your home’s exterior before you spend hours decorating your home for the holidays. 

  1. Your Guests Will Likely Notice -  Chances are your friends and family are visiting for the first time in a long time (or maybe they have never visited your home before). First impressions are important, and you want your guests to notice your beautiful holiday lights instead of noticing and focusing on unsightly black streaks, mold, mildew and algae. Wouldn’t you rather dazzle your guests by having them see your clean home exterior all lit up for the holidays with the focus on the decorations, not the dirt?


  1. Your Lights And Decorations Will Get Dirty Too - Your lights will rub up against a dirty roof and exterior and become dirty as well. Imagine having to deep clean light strand after light strand and your decorations because they were placed on a dirty surface. You can save that time and energy by putting up your lights on a clean roof and exterior.


  1. A Dirty Exterior Shortens Your Roof’s Lifespan - Regular roof Regular cleaning can help extend the life of your roof. When you hire professionals, you actually save money in the long-run.
