Whether it be leaves falling from neighboring trees, dust from heavy winds or standing water from dew or rain, debris in gutters can cause major issues. Gutter systems, no matter how well constructed or installed, are not designed to handle excessive weight from heavy, water laden debris. Gutters straining under this pressure will warp, twist or tear away from hardware, causing untold damage to siding and fascia boards.
When gutters are clogged with dirt, leaves and other materials, water will have nowhere to channel itself and will run down the side of the property. This overflow can rot wood and invade a home’s exterior, causing major damage requiring extensive repairs. When water is allowed to become a constant problem, mold and other destructive organic processes can begin.

Improper drainage is another major contributor to prematurely aging gutter systems. Water that is left to stand in a gutter run will eventually cause materials to break down. All metal gutters should be correctly coated prior to installation, but even then, issues can arise. Standing water breeds insects such as mosquitoes and encourages rodent activity.
Both these issues are important to deal with as the potential heath risks are problematic. It is important to schedule regular gutter cleanings for the longevity of your seamless gutter system and the integrity of your home. Our gutter cleaning crews will remove all debris and flush your entire system thoroughly, ensuring that any unseen issues can be addressed immediately by combining your gutter cleaning and repair at the same time.
Gutter cleaning is a dangerous business. We usually suggest that homeowners rely on professionals to perform this task, as we are trained to work on various pitches at different heights.
