Why Should I Have My Gutters Professionally Cleaned?

Purpose of Gutters 

The purpose of your gutters is to direct water running from your roof to the downspouts which will deposit the water away from your home’s foundation.  Without a gutter system in place, the water would run off of your roof and saturate the soil next to your house potentially causing future water damage in basements, or worse, damage to your home’s foundation.

Threat of Water to Your Basement

As you know, water will flow towards the path of least resistance and unfortunately concrete foundations are not crack free.  Overflowing water from roofs will find a way into the small cracks in your home’s foundation and erosion will occur.  As the water flows back out of the cracked area it will take small pieces of concrete with it causing the crack to become larger. Over time this can lead to water entering your basement and a flooded basement may not be your only concern. Bacteria growth including mold & mildew can occur affecting your walls and flooring.

The Need for Professionally Cleaned Gutters

You may be thinking “Well I have gutters, so this shouldn’t be an issue for my home.” Unfortunately, gutters become clogged over time and water will flow over your clogged gutters to your foundation.  Clogged gutters can become heavy and possibly pull away from your house causing structural damage to your home and gutters. Having your gutters cleaned in the spring and fall is a great way to help eliminate these problems and thus avoiding costly repairs.

Not only will having your gutters professionally cleaned mean that your foundation is safe from water damage, it will ensure you don’t have to climb up the ladder yourself and take on the risk involved in gutter cleaning. 

The professionals know the safest methods for gutter cleaning, and will ensure that no damage is done to your home in the process. Doing it yourself means you’re the one climbing the ladder, handling the gross debris, and interacting equipment and material you’re not familiar with; a recipe for falls, slips, and damage.
