SO YOU GOT EGGED?
For some reason years ago, teens thought it would be exciting to start throwing eggs at homes. Whether it’s boredom or hate, it happens. Many people have been victims of such things. If the eggs are left they could cause some real problems. Removing them as soon as you can should definitely be a priority. The longer you leave it on the longer it will take to come off. It also has the potential to ruin shingles and stain them.
So how do you remove it?
First take a hose and try removing it with that. If the eggs are still wet then it should come right off. Start the water above the egg so it will work its way off hopefully in one piece. If it stubborn or caked onto your roof and won’t come off with just that then you’ll need to move to the big guns…
Warm water and soap. Do NOT use hot water this will just cook the egg onto whatever surface it is on even more. Mix the two together and soak a towel in the solution. Place the towel on the spot where the egg is and let it sit there for 10-15 minutes. Then scrub it a little bit and it should come off.
Another solution you could try is white vinegar and warm water. Use it the same way you would use the warm water and soap. Mix the two together and soak a towel in the solution. Place the towel on the spot where the egg is and let it sit there for 10-15 minutes. Scrub the area a little bit and it should come off.
Hopefully you never have to use any of these tricks, but if you do, please take all the necessary safety precautions when getting onto your roof. Have someone assist you in getting up onto the roof and help handing you all the equipment you need once you’re on the roof.
