Interior Gutter Cleaning:
Gutters can last for over 30 years, if properly cleaned on a regular basis. Gutters that are clogged with leaves and debris can be very unattractive and can also cause the gutters to not function properly. The job of a gutter system on a home is to drain water off and away from a home. If their is debris in the gutter system, it can cause the gutters to overflow with water and can cause water damage to your home and landscaping.
Over time, organic muck can also build up in rain gutters, creating a prime growing area for all kinds of things. Some become so built up with debris that small trees and weeds actually take root in it and begin to grow. Gutters should be cleaned twice a year for this very reason.
Exterior Gutter Cleaning:
The cleanliness of the Gutters on the outside of a home or business are just as important as the paint job it has. Gutters can become stained with unsightly dark stains and lines, which can become very difficult to remove. These marks, called “tiger stripes”, are caused by a variety of reasons.
Roofing tar and asphalt can drip down on the gutter, while dirt and mold can become bonded to the gutter’s paint. In order to remove this, the right chemicals and the right contractor is necessary. This is usually a dangerous job for homeowners to take on themselves, considering gutters are generally high off the ground and require a ladder to reach.
