Fitted around your roofline and responsible for carrying wastewater away from your property, your gutters do an incredibly important job throughout the year. Keeping them clear of debris and ensuring water is able to flow freely will ensure they continue to do this job perfectly and without causing any unnecessary damage to your home. Gutter cleaning is one of the most effective and efficient ways of keeping your gutters clean and clear.
Leaves Causing Blockages
During the fall, leaves can find their way into your gutters and stay there. Over time, as they become wet, they can cause a blockage which prevents rainwater from making its way to the sewer system. With nowhere to go, the water either backs up or overflows over the side of your gutters, falling onto whatever is situated below. These leaks can cause damage to the exterior of your property, while big blockages can actually expand and cause damage to the guttering itself.
Gutter cleaning using a special pressure washing technique clears leaf blockages and leaves your gutters able to carry water where it needs to go. Regular gutter maintenance also improves the external appearance of your home and helps to prolong the life of your gutters.
Unwanted Vegetation and Animal Nests
In addition to leaves, other unwanted debris can cause problems with your gutters. Many homeowners are often surprised to look up and see grass, weeds and even flowers growing out of their gutters. As pretty as this may look, nobody wants a roof garden that could cause damage to their property. Animals are also known to make their nests in gutters and these will also need to be cleared to keep your gutters flowing smoothly.
The great thing about gutter cleaning services is that they can get to the heart of the problem very quickly. Whether you need your entire gutter system cleaned, or you have a specific area that requires special attention, gutter pressure washing is the best technique for the job.
