The task is made much easier with a leaf blower, I just have to be careful keeping my balance on the roof while holding the thing & aiming it in such a way that the leaves only blow off a single side of the house.
There are always a lot of chores I have to do each month to respond to temperature swings & weather effects as several threats present themselves to my yard or my house. It’s important to make sure you have a little debris lying on the ground ahead of a tropical storm or hurricane because it will go airborne & threaten your home, your neighbors’ homes, or anyone outside while in the event. I also have to get on the roof to sweep off the leaves before it starts getting icy & snowy up there in January. That spells disaster, because then you’ve got rotten foliage underneath the ice when it begins to thaw in Spring. This can also affect roof leakage, so it’s smart to make sure it’s clean before the first difficult freeze & acsuppliering precipitation. The task is made much easier with a leaf blower, I just have to be careful keeping my balance on the roof while holding the thing & aiming it in such a way that the leaves only blow off a single side of the house. It didn’t make a neat pile, however it was quicker than raking in a circle around the entire foundation. Luckily I don’t have to worry about this right now because it’s May & I’ve already cleared off the roof once since the Spring thaw. Instead of roof debris, I’m focused on making sure the a/c is working properly as I get it serviced & ran tests on by my heating & cooling business. I’ll be using it officially until early September, so it’s important to get it serviced no later than May.
