Why Are Clean Gutters Important?
Dirty gutters cause expensive damage to your home. Clean gutters are the only thing preventing thousands of gallons of water from damaging your home. Much like changing the oil in your car, cleaning the gutters on your home prevents damage to your foundation, siding, and fascia boards.
A home with a 1,500-square-foot roof sheds about 1,000 gallons of water for every one inch of rainfall. Clean gutters prevent water from penetrating your home or damaging the foundation, landscaping, fascia boards and siding. It is imperative that this water is channeled away from your home. However, even a handful of debris prevents your gutters from working.
What Does Gutter Cleaning Entail?
The primary function of gutter cleaning, as you might expect, is to get debris out of your gutters. However, proper gutter cleaning involves a lot more than throwing leaves and other debris out of your gutter. We guarantee “scour” clean gutters. It’s important for gutters to be completely cleaned down to the bare metal and all downspouts checked for blockages. While cleaning, we inspect all gutter attachment points, seams, and downspouts.
