When it comes to gutter cleaning, there are a few important things that every homeowner should know. Read on to learn more about the basics of this service so you can enjoy clean, clog-free gutters.
Not all drive cleaning services will also work on your roof or gutters. If you need both, make sure you find a company that can offer you everything you need in one single trip.
It’s best to leave gutter cleaning jobs to the pros. First, you’ll need the right safety equipment, and it can be dangerous to clean gutters yourself, especially if your home is two stories or higher. Let the experts handle the dangerous jobs so that you don’t have to worry about possible injury.
Clogged gutters can create structural problems for your home. When the water doesn’t properly drain, it can lead to rot and other damage to your foundation that is often difficult to see without further inspection.
Schedule a gutter cleaning at least twice a year. If your home has a lot of trees around it, you may need to clean them more often. Leaves, twigs, and other organic debris can cause gutters to become clogged quite quickly.
Be aware of the shingles on your roof when doing a gutter cleaning. If you happen to notice that there are granules in your gutters, it may indicate that your shingles are old, damaged, or simply need to be replaced.
Don’t forget to check the downspouts, too. Even if your gutters are nice and clean, clogged downspouts will still create serious issues with drainage.
