The time of year is here when the responsible homeowner must asks, “When was the last time I cleaned my gutters?” This is a task that many homeowners tend to forget about, but some serious maintenance may be in order! There are many reasons to give your gutter a good cleaning in October and November, because there’s a good chance you won’t have time to get to it before the holidays. Summer humidity causes a lot of mold and algae growth, especially if a gutter becomes clogged, resulting in stagnant water and flooding. Even if your gutter made it through the summer, sticks and fallen leaves can cause debris buildup in your gutter that could result in a clog. If left unattended, a clogged gutter can cause thousands of dollars in damage to a home. Don’t wait any longer, call the professionals at H2O Wash today and give your gutter the V.I.P. treatment it deserves! Here are some gutter cleaning services H2O Wash can perform for you:
- Cosmetic Cleaning: Does your gutter have black or brown tiger stripes running down its face? These stripes occur when pollution and dirt build up on the lip of your gutter; then an overflow of precipitation spills over that lip running down the face of your gutter and bringing the dirt/pollution with it. This is caused by heavy rainfall or, in a worse-case scenario, a clogged gutter. The correct pressure washing can safely and easily remove these streaks, leaving your gutter looking like new.
- Buildup Removal: This is the season when your gutters can accumulate all kinds of debris: leaves, pine cones, even small branches that get blown off the trees by that brisk autumn wind. H2O Wash will go the extra mile and clear out the buildup that poses a threat to your gutter’s draining system. Some companies may begin to spray out the gutters before making sure the downspouts are cleared. The flow of water can compact the debris in the downspout resulting in a much more severe problem, but H2O does it right.
- Function Restoration: After the debris is removed from your gutter, an environment-safe algae-killing formula is applied, followed by a low-pressure spraying to remove any gunky growth caused by stagnant water. This will leave your drains functioning as well as the day you moved in.
So now you know, a properly functioning gutter system is something to be taken seriously! And the team at H2O Wash has the skill and expertise to get your gutter back in tip-top shape.
