Gutter cleaning is an important part of maintaining your home. Gutter cleaning is necessary to allow the rain to flow off your roof, into your gutters, to the ground properly and away from your house. As a result of clogged gutters and downspouts, water may leak over the edges leaving dirt and stains on the paint and windows, water damage to walkways and decks below. What is even worse, it could end up leaking back into your home causing water damage to the walls and floors.
Additionally, gutters that aren't cleaned can rust and break. Damage to the roof and wall attachments may also occur due to the excess weight caused by trapped rain water and debris.
Cleaning your gutters is essential to preserving your house. Keep your gutters clean to avoid costly damage. The gutter cleaning we provide is all done by hand. There's no mess because we don't use blowers which throw debris all over your yard or the side of your home.
We offer gutter cleaning for FREE when you install Gutter Guards and covers and make this your last gutter cleaning.
Q. How often should my gutters be cleaned?
A. We recommend 1 to 3 times per year, but of course it all depends on how much debris is getting dropped into your gutters. Ideally once in the spring in preparation for the rains and once around fall after the leaves have fallen. If you have large trees hanging over your roof you may need a third cleaning in mid-summer.
Q. How do you clean the gutters?
A. We work by hand to pull everything out of your gutters and put it straight into a garbage bag. Next, we rinse out the gutters to insure the downspouts are flowing correctly. If there's a mess, we'll clean it up as well.
Q. Do you clean french drains?
A. We clean the downspouts all the way to the ground. If at that point they go into a french drain or some other type of underground plumbing, we will attempt to clear them but there are no guarantees. Occasionally there are roots or broken pipes and this requires more attention than we can offer.
Q. Do you recommend Gutter Guards?
A. Often times gutter guards are going to be a great addition to your home and ensure you never have to clean your gutters. It is still recommended to clean the gutters and gutter covers occasionally to ensure your guards are not clogged and function properly. You will just have to ensure you get the correct kind of guards if you have trees with pine needles.
