5 Reasons To Clean Your Gutters This Fall!


It’s just about that time of the year again… in just a few weeks all the leaves that you see around you will go from a beautiful, colorful masterpiece to a gutter clogging headache. Even with the help of gutter covers, pine needles, leaves and roofing shingles still pose a significant threat to the longevity and efficiency of your gutters. Thankfully for homeowners, a professional power washing crew has the skill and equipment needed to safely clean out clogged gutters and downspouts before they have a chance to cause damage to your home.


5 Reasons To Clean Your Gutters This Fall!

1. Clogged Downspouts

Ineffective gutters can quickly lead to clogged downspouts and drains. Without a clear path for water to flow down and away from the house, obstructed downspouts can result in damage to your lawn, roof, gutters and more. The high pressure hoses used by power washers is the best way to completely clear out all of your house’s downspouts.

2. Landscaping & Foundation Issues

A properly working gutter carries water away from your house and landscaping, preventing it from building up along the foundation of your home. This standing water can cause walls to weaken and crack due to erosion and runoff. To avoid having to deal with these issues, we suggest a gutter cleaning once, if not twice a year depending on the tree coverage surrounding your home.

3. Roof Damage

Like foundation issues, roof damage can be a nightmare for homeowners. Besides the concern of running into costly repair bills, deteriorated roofs can pose a huge safety risk to you and your family. Professional power washers can remove any and all debris and obstructions from your gutters, giving you the peace of mind that your roof and walls are safe from water damage.   

4. Algae & Moss Growth

Water runoff caused by clogged gutters is a huge reason homeowners may notice algae and moss growth on the sides of their houses. No one wants to deal with green, algae covered siding, so it is essential to keep your gutters clear of shingle runoff, leaves and pine needles.

5. Gutter Damage

Do you want to go through the process of replacing damaged gutters? We didn’t think so! All of the extra weight from debris and standing water cause gutter sagging and bending. The best way to increase the lifespan and efficiency of your gutters is by keeping them clear and unobstructed!
