If you are already looking to hire a team of professionals to clean the windows of your residential property, then another service you should consider for your home is gutter cleaning. Thankfully there are businesses who will offer both services, and seeing as both should be done at least twice a year (once in the springtime and once in the fall), being able to schedule both at the same time with the same team of people is incredibly beneficial in not only saving you time and money, but in improving the overall efficiency of your home and reducing the need for costly repairs in the future.
Benefits of Gutter Cleaning
Did you know that having your gutters cleaned is an essential step to maintaining your home’s overall health? It is inevitable that over time you will end up with some sort of debris in your gutters: dirt, leaves, twigs, branches, nests, etc. By not removing these pieces of debris, you run the risk of damaging your roof, siding, foundation, porch, patio, basement, and more. Gutter cleaning ensures that your home’s drainage system remains clear of any blockages, this prevents water from accumulating on your roof and the ground surrounding your home, which can lead to things like wood rot, foundation cracks and potential indoor flooding, primarily in the ceilings, walls, and basement. Allowing blockages to remain in your gutters can also leave you susceptible to infestations from pesky insects, as places where water accumulates make for perfect breeding grounds for mosquitoes. Not to mention the damage that can occur to the gutters themselves from the constant damp and dirt, this can cause the metal to rust and erode. The extra weight from the debris build up can pull the weakened gutters away from the structure.
Prolonged heavy build up of debris can cause your gutters to weaken and sag, reducing draining efficiency.
Clogged gutters will not drain efficiently and the water can potentially back up onto your roof or spill out of the sides of the gutter, damaging your home.
Prevent Basement Flooding
Gutters need to be cleaned on a regular basis to ensure they operate as designed, to direct water away from your home.
Safely Cleaning Your Gutters
Cleaning your gutters by yourself can be a dangerous job. It’s understandable that many people may not be too keen about climbing up on top of a roof in order to get it done.
By hiring a team of professionals, you can guarantee that all debris will be removed not only precisely, but safely, as teams will be equipped with things like ladders and safety harnesses to prevent any accidental injury.
Hiring someone for the job also means not having to worry about cleaning up the aftermath. You might be surprised by how much dirt and debris can accumulate in your gutters and just how messy the job can be, which might make the task even more unappealing to do.
Save With a Package Deal
Having your gutters and windows cleaned simultaneously will save you time in the long run. It will also save you from accidental injury. Above all, it will 100% save you money, as we can offer a service package that fits your home’s needs, delivered by a team of people who will treat your residential property with the utmost care and respect, as if it was their own home.
So if you, like a lot of people, are afraid of heights, or are crunched for time, having someone tackle cleaning your gutters at the same time they are cleaning your windows is a solid option.
