When looking for a roof cleaner one of the most important things to check is what level of insurance they have. A quick Google search will give you a list of results for roof cleaning companies stating they are “fully insured”, but is that really true? It is vital that you dig a little deeper into the insurances they hold, because it may not cover them for roof cleaning.
Check your roof cleaner has specialist insurance for roofs
Many companies will have general cleaning insurance that covers them for standard, on ground cleaning. However, there is always a danger with being on a roof, at height. Because the liability is greater roof cleaning is not always covered by general, low level, cleaning insurance. Specialist insurance is required for this type of activity. If a roof cleaner is up a ladder on your roof, without the correct insurance, you could be liable for an accident or any damage that occurs.
