The Necessity of Downspout and Gutter Cleaning and Maintenance

Let’s face it! Nobody really wants to address the trouble of cleaning and maintaining their gutters. While you may not like gutter cleaning, it is just one of the most vital maintenance activities for your house’s exterior. Without proper gutter cleaning a blocked gutter or downspout can result in significant damage to your house.

Getting a professional gutter cleaning company is an excellent way to help stop this from transpiring. When you hire a qualified gutter system cleaning service, they will come with a toolkit and ladder. Depending on how high your home is, extension ladders may be necessary. Additional tools to be utilized may include a trowel, bucket, blower, and garden hose. Safety glasses, gloves, and other protective gear are used to help protect the cleaner from debris and possible pests that could swarm around your home. Ultimately, hiring a gutter cleaning service will save you time, money, and stress.

Setting Up Equipment and Tools to Clean Gutters and Downspouts

Our experts stick to the highest safety standards in the gutter cleaning industry. While every single gutter cleaning task is different the tools used to complete most jobs are similar. Setting up ladders safely and correctly while preventing any harm to the gutter system or landscaping is primarily essential. Even though many competent service technicians are able to manage ladder usage correctly without them, different types of ladder stabilizers are commonly used to help avoid both property damage and potential unfortunate incidents. Especially large jobs require several ladder moves by professionals. Properly attaching hoses to allow the needed reach without damaging surrounding shrubbery, plants, or flowers is vital. If a pressure washer is to be used safely setting up that equipment is required. Supplementary equipment may include work gloves, pails, trash bags, screwdriver, hammer, and a plumber’s snake.

Rain Gutter and Downspout Inspection

We check out your entire above-ground gutter system. Hunting for problem areas that may demand specific attention we evaluate any obvious clogs in the channels and downspouts. We also take the time to notice missing screws, loose-fitting joints, and spots where your rain gutters may have noticeably pulled away from the fascia. Performing this checkup allows the professional to correctly evaluate the issues with your gutter system, specific areas that may need special attention, and to identify the steps required to ensure a correctly functioning gutter system.

Clear Away Debris and Clogs in Gutters and Downspouts

After the assessment, the gutter cleaning professional will securely set an extension ladder to access the starting point of cleaning the gutters. Depending upon problem areas discovered during the course of the inspection, the professional may choose to remove obvious large obstructions first or might simply start at one end of the guttering working their way to a downspout. For two-story homes, most experts would prefer to clear the gutter system beginning with the highest level and work their way downward. Heavy-duty work gloves, a garden or gutter trowel, and a bucket are extremely effective when cleaning the gutters. When especially persistent clogs are found the service technician may opt to employ a plumber’s snake or high-pressure water to clear the interference. Finally, after removing all the debris the gutter cleaner uses a low-pressure water hose to rinse the gutters and look for the effective operation of the entire gutter system. At this point, the professional may have the opportunity to recognize issues or prospective problems with your gutter system that was not noticeable prior to the cleaning. The cleaner will advise you of anything you ought to be on the lookout for over time.

Bag or Distribute Residual Gutter Debris

After the gutter system is checked out, cleaned, and rinsed, the professional will ensure that all residual debris is bagged properly for disposal. Alternatively, depending upon the quantity of debris accumulated and the type of landscaping on the property, the specialist may choose to distribute it into existing flower beds or gardens.
