Get the Dirt on Gutter Cleaning
Raise your hand if you’re guilty of not cleaning out your gutters regularly. We don’t know what your exact reason is, but we’re guessing it has something to do with standing on a ladder, digging your hand into the gunk, and moving the ladder… repeat 847 times. Not to mention the fact that it’s time-consuming, and after doing it, there’s usually still dirt and stuff junking them up!
Well, we have good news for you my friends: we can take on gutter cleaning and do a much better job of it, actually getting your gutters really and truly clean.
Clean gutters are important, maybe even more important than you know. Keep reading to see what we mean.
5 Reasons to Clean Your Gutters
Keep the creepy crawlies away. Bugs, insects, and rodents love to make homes out of the dirt and debris that can build up in gutters. And it’s just a short skip, hop, and a jump for them to move inside your house. Gutter cleaning keeps them from hanging around.
Avoid growing things. Stagnant water and damp conditions in gutters are breeding grounds for mold, fungus, and other nasties. Power washing flushes all that away.
Prevent water damage inside and outside your home. The primary job of gutters is to direct water away from your home. Clogged gutters can’t do this, causing water to back up, possibly damaging your roof, which may create leaks inside your home. Dirty gutters also make this job difficult or impossible, and water will pour out where it shouldn’t. This can induce the soil around your house to move, causing your foundation to shift or crack. Driveways, patios, and sidewalks are also susceptible to pitting, shifting, and cracking from overflowing gutters. Siding, exterior doors, and windows could also be damaged.
Preserve your landscaping. While not as big of a concern as your foundation cracking, clogged gutters are no friend to gardens and grass. Overflowing water not only drowns landscaping, but it also beats it up, knocking off flowers, leaves, stems, and branches.
Save money. All of these problems are expensive to fix. Much more expensive than paying us here at Plethora Pressure Washing to clean your gutters. At $1.00-$2.00 per square foot, it’s worth it to spend a little on cleaning now to avoid the huge price tag of a costly fix later.
