Gutter maintenance is important, and Gutter Cleaning is at the top of the gutter maintenance list. Gutters catch more than just rain throughout the year. Typical debris includes leaves, twigs, acorns, toys, shingles, vegetation, and all types of household debris. You would be surprised with what we find in gutters! We routinely remove small saplings that sprout in badly clogged gutters. Recently, we removed a trapped tennis ball from an aluminum downspout!
When debris restricts the flow of water through the gutters and downspouts, water pools in the gutters behind these blockages. A heavy rainfall can cause the gutters to overflow. This overflow can cause damage and rot wood fascia boards and soffits of the home. Foundation damage can also occur if overflowing gutters are left untreated for a significant period of time.
