You know that clogged and overflowing gutters are an eyesore, but they can also be a precursor to expensive and complicated damages to your home and its foundation. While they may seem insignificant in the grand scheme of things, here’s why your gutters play a crucial role in protecting your home and how you can be sure you’re maintaining them properly.
How Gutter Maintenance Protects Your Biggest Investment
If you’re like most people, your home is your single largest investment. It’s important to keep your home in good condition, and part of doing so is ensuring your gutters are clear.
Gutters serve an important purpose: diverting rainwater away from your roof and the foundation of your house. Excessive water around your foundation can cause serious erosion issues, potentially compromising its integrity. If you have a basement, erosion problems can be particularly nightmarish.
Clogged gutters can also cause moisture problems along the roofline and are an inviting home for pests. However, when they’re clean and clear, gutters really do protect your house from top to bottom.
Fall in Fort Mill is Gutter Cleaning Time
Cleaning your gutters before and after the spring rains is essential, but it’s also wise to make sure they’re clear of any debris before the leaves begin to fall in earnest. Our gutter cleaning system is ideal for the Fort Mill area and leaves you ready to head into the fall season with confidence.
We’ll remove debris by hand then dispose of everything off-site, rather than merely blowing debris into flower beds and lawns. All gutter channels are flushed to remove roof granules, and then downspouts are cleaned with pressurized water to ensure proper function. This procedure also allows us to spot any leaks or clogs so we can thoroughly remove them. While we’re cleaning, we’ll perform a meticulous visual inspection of gutters and anchors so you can rest assured your gutter system is in working order.
Don’t let water damage bring major headaches to your home. If you’re ready to clear those gutters for autumn, we can help.
