Over the years, we’ve seen it all when it comes to gutter cleaning. Gutter cleaning is a task that many homeowners can do on their own, but it’s also a task that frequently gets procrastinated. Homeowners have excellent intentions, but never quite get around to pulling out the ladder and climbing up to the gutters.
Did you know that you could actually be damaging your gutters while cleaning them yourself? Most homeowners don’t own ladder stand-offs, so their ladder must rest directly on the gutters, or possibly up against the house. If the gutters have to bear your weight while you climb up the ladder, you could inadvertently push them in and downwards, creating a sag and disrupting the flow of water towards the downspout. This situation may result in standing water in your gutters, inviting the growth of insects, mildew and moss.
We always use ladder stand-offs when cleaning the gutters on your property. So when you call us, not only do you avoid the hassle of pulling out your ladder and working at heights, but you also prevent damage to your gutters and home.
Regular Maintenance Packages
Save on your next gutter cleaning service by signing up for our periodic maintenance programs. Our friendly technicians will evaluate the specific needs for gutter cleaning on your property and come up with a schedule that will save you money in the long run. Properties with a large amount of trees around the house will require more frequent cleanings, due to the build up of leaves and twigs in the gutters. Other properties without many trees around the gutters can get away with one cleaning per year.
There are many benefits to being a member of our maintenance program. Aside from keeping your gutters clean year-round, you don’t have to waste any time calling us to schedule a cleaning. We automatically add our regular maintenance clients to our operations schedule. We’ll just show up at the necessary times of the year and get the job done. If we have to move any outdoor furniture or accessories to get better access to your gutters, our crew will handle that and put everything back in its place. We’ll leave documentation in your mailbox when our work is complete, so you’ll know that we’ve been there and serviced your property.
More Info About Gutter Cleaning in Niagara
When you are doing routine outdoor maintenance for your home, something that is easy to forget about are your gutters; out of sight, out of mind. But did you know that by not cleaning your gutters, you may actually be doing damage to your foundation and basement?
It does sound a little strange doesn’t it, how can a gutter on your roof do harm to something that is underground? By missing out on routinely emptying the leaves and other debris from your gutters, you are effectively clogging up your homes runoff system; this means that instead of having any rainwater drain away from your property, it is instead overflowing and pooling against the building.
You can not only cause a costly amount of damage to your roof by having an overflow of water, but also flood your basement by not having your gutters cleaned and this may lead to an unforeseeable amount of property damage. In order to prevent this happening, we would suggest that you have your gutters cleared of all debris at least twice a year; once in the late spring/early summer, and once more in the late summer/early fall. However, if you have pine trees on your property, you may want to have your gutters cleaned up to three or four times a year because of how much the pine needles shed.
Besides preventing water damage, having your gutters cleaned also prevents the growth of mold, bacteria, fungi, and algae, as stagnant water provides the perfect opportunity for all of them to flourish. Gutters overflowing with water also make a breeding ground for mosquitoes, and with mosquitoes can unfortunately come the West Nile virus, a mosquito transmitted infection, passed through their bites. By removing any clogs from your gutters, you will effectively eliminate the chance of your gutters growing bacteria, or becoming infested with pests.
Build-up in your gutters can also lead to the gutters becoming too heavy and sagging, if this goes on for too long, you may risk having your gutters detach, and not only can this cause damage to your roof and fascia, but you may risk injury if someone happened to be nearby.
While cleaning your gutters is an absolutely essential chore, it can also be dangerous if you are inexperienced, or uncomfortable with working atop a ladder. Understandably, heights are not for everyone, and it can take a good amount of elbow grease to get the job done thoroughly, which can be difficult to exert if you are feeling particularly nervous. This is when it is a great time to call the professionals, like us, your local gutter cleaning experts, as we have the tools and training necessary to safely execute the removal of all leaves, sticks, dirt, and grime. Professionals will be able to remove blockages by hand, and have access to high-pressure vacuums and power washers, helping to ensure the longevity of your property.
Signs that your gutters are clogged/in need of cleaning include: cracks/splits in your gutters, rust and paint damage (the paint used on gutters is typically water resistant, if you are noticing peeling paint or rust spots, it most likely means that you have water accumulating on the surface for an extended period of time), sagging gutters, water staining, and pools of water right after a rain storm (especially around your foundation).
