Can you remember the last time you had your gutters cleaned? If you’re like most people who go the DIY route, your gutters are probably filled to the brim with debris, leaves, or overgrown plants and need immediate attention. When your gutters are severely neglected, it can cause issues that lead to expensive repairs.
Call the team at Shine of Franklin for professional gutter cleaning services you can trust. We utilize special equipment to clean gutters effectively and efficiently and, best of all, at an affordable price.
The Importance of Gutter Cleaning
While it may seem like a menial home maintenance task, having your gutters cleaned regularly is extremely important in preventing expensive problems down the line. Your gutters are designed to redirect water away from your home, mitigating the chances of roof leaks and exterior paint damage, and stopping mold or mildew from growing. More important, gutters can prevent foundation erosion and protect your landscaping. We recommend you clean your gutters at least every three months to avoid debris buildup and gutter overflow.
Fortunately, there are some things you can do to offset future issues, including:
- Clean out downspouts: When you’re cleaning out your gutters, pay attention to the downspouts that get clogged with leaves, pine needles, twigs, and other debris as they’re being cleared from your gutters. If running water through your gutters doesn’t eliminate the obstructions, you’ll need a professional who can use a plumbing snake or a high-pressure water sprayer to break up downspout clogs. Our team at Shine can definitely help!
- Buy larger gutters: In some cases, homes are installed with gutters that aren’t large enough to handle the amount of water runoff from the roof or debris that finds its way into your gutters. If clogs are due to inadequately sized gutters that can’t remove excessive amounts of debris, simply purchase oversized gutters from your local hardware store.
- Invest in gutter guards: Most hardware locations sell products designed to keep solid debris out of gutters. Gutter guards come in a couple of options, including mesh-style screens that fit across or inside your gutters, or rigid metal slats with vents that fasten over your gutters. It’s important to note that gutter guards are designed to keep out debris, but they’re not 100% effective. They can still attract obstructions, so make sure the openings don’t get clogged.
While the tips and techniques above can help mitigate gutter clogs, you should always perform routine gutter cleaning to ensure they’re in optimal working condition.
