GUTTER CLEANING

You rarely see inside your gutters, so why do you need to clean them? Whether their role is visible or not, it’s a critically important one for your home. Gutters move water from your roof to your drains. Without clean gutters, water backs up and cascades over the gutter’s edge. This can cause water damage to your siding, problems with your foundation as water moves into the ground, and troubles with your landscaping as it sits under a miniature waterfall day after day.

GUTTER GUARDS

Skipping gutter cleaning isn’t a good option. The cost of foundation damage from leaks, landscaping damage from overflowing gutters, and problems with your roof and siding can cost much more than the cost of gutter cleaning. However, if you install gutter covers, you can skip gutter cleaning for the rest of your time in that home. Gutter covers work by allowing water to run smoothly over the cover and slide into the gutter.

WHEN DO I NEED TO CLEAN MY GUTTERS?

  • Leaves piling up in your gutters.
    - If you can see debris from the ground, then there is more that you can’t see in the gutters.

  • Overflowing gutters.
    - If you see water going over the gutters, instead of in the gutters, then you more than likely have a clog.

  • Dripping gutters.
    - If you see water dripping from under the gutters, it could either indicate a clog causing overflow, or a seal that needs to be re-sealed with waterproof sealant.

  • No water coming out of the downspout.
    - It would indicate that there is a clog in the downspout. Debris from your gutter flows down into the downspout and clogs the water flow. Weak flow from the downspout would indicate the same thing.

  • Vines or shrubs growing from your downspout. 
    - If you have any types of plants sprouting from any part of your gutter system you need to clean them and remove all plant material immediately.

  • Heavy mosquito presence around your home. 
    - Mosquitoes and gnats spawn in stagnant water. If your gutters have clogs and standing water in them, that becomes a breeding ground for mosquitoes in the summer.
