Protect Your Home with Routine Gutter Cleaning

Your home’s gutter system provides a valuable service by directing water run-off from your roof away from your home. When gutters become clogged with debris, they can overflow and retain water under your eaves that can cause serious damage. Routine gutter cleaning helps ensure this system is working correctly to provide the drainage benefits necessary to protect your home from too much water saturation.

When gutters are clogged, water will be prevented from safely draining away from your home. This can cause many issues over time. If the water is flowing down your siding, it can cause mildew and damage to the sides of your home. Water that is retained in gutters can also lead to rot under your eaves. Plus, the water that seeps into the ground around your home can cause soil erosion that can impact your foundation and landscaping. Cleaning your gutters at least once a year is the best way to prevent these types of drainage issues.

Hire a Professional for Safe Gutter Cleaning

While you can clean your gutters yourself, it can be a dangerous job. Standing on a ladder or on your roof while using a pressure washer or removing debris by hand is risky. It is worth the investment to hire a professional that has the right training and equipment to clean your gutters thoroughly while you stay safely on the ground.

Early spring and late fall are usually the most beneficial times to perform gutter cleaning to ensure your system stays clear of debris. It is a wise investment to hire a pressure washing company to perform this task, protecting your home and property from water and drainage issues.
