A Smart Investment for Your Home
Our Gutter Cleaning and Maintenance Services
Here at NW Surface Cleaner, when a customer contacts us for gutter maintenance we are happy to be able to provide both cleaning and basic repair services.
For gutter cleaning, our team uses air to blow out all of the debris from your gutters. Next, we ensure that your downspouts are clear and able to drain properly. When working as intended, water should flow through your gutters and out the downspouts; however, over time, the seams in your gutters may start to leak. If your gutters have seams that are dripping, we can caulk or seal the seams to ensure that your gutters continue to keep water flowing away from your home.
Additionally, if there are areas where your gutters are pulling away from your house, water is able to reach your house, and collect, in these areas. This can lead to leaks and foundation issues. We are happy to keep your gutters functioning properly by securing any parts of the gutters that are pulling away from your house. To do so, we will nail or screw your gutters back into place.
Finally, we offer gutter guard installation on your existing gutters. Gutter guards are beneficial because they help prevent debris from building up in your gutters in the first place and thus help minimize maintenance needs. Gutter guards are particularly beneficial for homes with heavy overhead tree coverage as the gutters on these homes will collect debris more quickly than other homes.
Investing in Regular Gutter Maintenance Can Prevent Costly Home Repairs
Regular gutter cleaning and maintenance is a smart investment for your home because gutters that are not functioning properly can lead to both exterior and interior water damage. When gutters are: backed up with debris, leaking, and/or pulling away from your home, water is not able to flow away from your home properly. This can lead to leaks in your roof, siding, or windows. Additionally, when water builds up around the base of your home, it can damage your home’s foundation and require costly repairs.
Annual Maintenance Required
Gutters should be checked and cleaned at least once a year to ensure proper upkeep. If your home has heavy tree coverage, you will likely need to invest in more frequent gutter cleanings. Here in the Pacific Northwest, regular gutter maintenance should be a top priority for homeowners as we enjoy ample tree coverage and experience heavy rains each year.
