Why Gutter Cleaning Is Important?

Gutter cleaning

Annual gutter cleaning although costly can prevent a couple of issues around your home. If you are a landlord or property manager take note of these issues.

  • If the gutters become too full the hangers can pull from the fascia board and cause the gutters which are made out of aluminum to bend and possibly pull the hangers off.
  • If the gutters are full the water could run on the back side of the gutter, eroding the facia board, and into the drywall. This would require mold remediation and new drywall.
  • If the water is not draining at the bottom of the downspout, it could cause water to leak in around the foundation of the home. Professional waterproofing of a basement or crawlspace can cost in the range of 10,000 to 20,000.
  • Rodent or insect infestation. As stated before if the gutters are full the wood could become a landing ground for bugs. I personally have seen mosquitoes make homes in the gutters and it creates quite an unpleasant outdoor experience for the clients until we arrive to the scene.

How does Aqua Blast Clean gutters?

You might be wondering how we clean gutters. As you know a ladder is a mandatory piece of equipment in the gutter cleaning business. Depending on the steepness of the roof, after we use the ladder and standoff to get on the roof, we can clean them by hand with a bucket or with a leaf blower. Once the section of gutter is cleaned, we can rinse or blow the downspouts to ensure any debris is clear of the downspout.

How do we quote gutter cleaning?

We have a minimum charge for gutter cleaning. This is due to the risk involved with the job, the time spent, and the number of laborers needed. We take our time with the gutter cleaning and ensure that all gutters are cleaned and downspouts are unplugged. A number of factors will increase the price of the gutter cleaning going up to the next tier. Some of them are distance to the job, number of stories, and risk of the job.
