Did we also mention that gutter cleaning Southport has been in the business of gutter cleaning for three decades now? We have a ton of knowledge and experience cleaning gutters out. Getting rid of gutter clogs is very important to the overall working ability of your gutters. That means water can flow through them when it rains and storms heavily. You always want that water pouring down to go into those gutters and flow away from your home. Why is that so important? Great question! Because otherwise the water will stand around the base of your home and possibly cause foundation issues. Foundation issues mean big trouble for the stability of your house. Mold and mildew can also settle into the crawl space under the house or into the basement. Yikes! These all sound like horrible things to deal with.
Believe us they are and that’s why gutter cleaning Southport wants you to stay informed about the importance of keeping your gutters cleaned out. We recommend that you have your gutters cleaned out at least twice a year. You can have them cleaned every quarter if you choose but that just depends on how much debris is falling into them. Do you have a home surrounded by trees? Then you might want to consider getting quarterly gutter cleanings done.
How We Clean Gutters
Gutter cleaning Southport pros clean gutters out by hand. Yes, we do have to climb ladders to get around the house, but we are expertly trained and skilled at what we do. Plus we do this type of work all of the time. We place the gutter debris into buckets as we are removing it. No, we do not throw the gutter debris down into your landscaping and wooded areas surrounding the house. It does not match and it is usually wet and decomposing. Afterward, our pros put the debris into trash bags that later get hauled off site. Where does it go from there? Another good question. Our pros will deposit the debris into a wooden site where it can decompose naturally.
Our pros will finish cleaning your gutters out by taking a water hose and flushing them down to remove any leftover traces of shingle grit and rotten debris. This way your gutters are absolutely clean.
Gutter Cleaning Importance
We already mentioned that gutter cleaning helps to keep your home’s foundation safe. It can also keep the inside of your home safe from water damage because if water does not flow over the gutters when they are clogged it can go inside the house. How does that happen? You see when water backs up it has only one place to go besides over the top of the gutter and that is under the roofing shingle. You might not see it at first until you look up after a heavy rain storm or unless there has been damage before but it didn’t show its ugly face yet. But you will see the visible sights of it on your ceilings and walls.
Getting another type of professional to diagnose the true origin of the cause of the water damage can be tricky to track. Someone will have to get into your attic space and also climb around on your roof to inspect the shingles. Anyway it is another ordeal to deal with. It can be prevented though by just getting your gutters cleaned by gutter cleaning Southport regularly.
Gutter cleaning will also help to keep your home looking good. A home with overflowing leaves, twigs, and branches hanging out of the gutters and on the roof can make a sight for sore eyes. At the beginning of fall when the leaves start to fall maybe it is a refreshing sight to behold but after a while it looks like you just don’t care. Letting your gutters get compacted with gutter debris is an accident waiting to happen. If they get heavy from having too much debris and then getting waterlogged, then the gutters can fall away from the fascia boards of the home. Talk about another dilemma to deal with and the cost of repairs. Having great curb appeal and keeping your home maintenance under good control does not have to be a sole burden. All you have to do is give our pros a call and let us help you out. Don’t try to do a DIY job.
