Why should you vacuum your roof cavity?


Did you ever wonder how dusty is your roof? Just like every other surface in your home dust builds up in your roof. The older the house, the more dust has built up. In some old houses up to half a ton of dust has been found in their roof!

But it’s not just dust piling up in there. There’s guaranteed to be a mixture of bird and animal droppings and the odd snakeskin, animal remains and bird’s nests in the mix as well. All of these things can prove harmful to your health if you are exposed to it for too long.

The problem is that dust never stays put in your roof. Almost every house has appliances that are attached to the ceiling including down lights, ceiling fans, air conditioners and roof access points. These attachment holes let built up dust fall into the rooms below. If the dust gets too heavy, you may also see structural damage to the roof itself such as cracked ceilings.

Employing a professional to vacuum your roof can help keep your roof hygienic and safe, as well as reduce the symptoms of asthma, allergies, hay fever and skin irritations in your family.

Vacuuming your roof before installing new insulation is also recommended because then you are not laying new insulation directly on top of decades of dust. Getting a professional to vacuum up any old insulation and dust allows your new insulation to go down on a clean surface, which dramatically decreases the risk of fire.
