6 Blessings Of Gutter Cleaning

Gutter cleaning blessings

Experts advise that you should have your gutters cleaned bi-annually: just before the summer and the winter. But WHY is it important to properly maintain your gutters? Well, we've got six good reasons why you should have your gutters professionally cleaned by a licensed, insured pressure washing professional.

Your home's gutters are there for practical and essential reasons beyond curb appeal, and professional gutter cleaning service by Have Faith Pressure Washer Services, LLC can get them functioning at maximum efficiency on the inside, and looking their best on the outside, providing six tangible blessings to you and your property.

1. Extends Your Roof's Life

Roofs are costly to replace, and you may have to move out while replacement work is ongoing, so it makes good sense to do everything you can to extend the life of your roof for as long as possible to avoid replacement or repair costs and inconvenience. When water isn't draining from your roof correctly, it can cause pooling that provides the perfect breeding ground for mold, mildew, and other natural destructive organisms. Clogged gutters can trap moisture, ice, and debris that add weight to your gutters and roof, potentially causing damage to roofs and gutters. Pooled water can also freeze during the winter, causing leaks and water damage. But, it's easy to avoid all of these potential problems by pairing Have Faith Pressure Washer Services, LLC's gutter cleaning service with our roof cleaning service for a complete roof protection plan.

2. Extends The Life Of Your Gutters

Clogged gutters cause additional weight stress, and the heft and sagging that extra weight can produce can cause gutter segments to detach and cause even more property damage. Organic clogs can also cause rust and corrosion of your gutters which shortens their lifespan and makes replacing them more frequent. You can spend a little now, or you can spend a lot later. Professional gutter cleaning by a pressure washing professional is an affordable proactive measure that you can take to avoid much more expensive gutter repair and replacement costs further on down the road.

3. Prevents Foundation Erosion

The primary purpose of having gutters is to divert rainwater and snowmelt that collects on your roof away from your home's foundation. Water falling directly from roofs tends to land right at the base of your foundation, and that repetitious drip, drip, drip gradually displaces soil around your foundation, which erodes the surrounding earth supporting the foundation and the concrete of the foundation itself. This erosion weakens sections of the foundation, causing possible cracks that can mean big trouble and a significant expense to repair down the road. Yes, the erosion process takes so much time that it's only noticeable by professionals until it's too late, but remember, erosion formed the Grand Canyon! Professional pressure washing is an effective way of clearing gutter clogs and obstructions to keep your gutters flowing and keep your foundation safe and sound and protected from erosion.

4. Curb Appeal Improvement

Clogged, overflowing gutters detract from your home's total curb appeal picture. Green and grey stained or streaked gutters can catch the eye wrong and ruin positive perceptions. It's like framing a beautiful masterpiece painting with a cheap plastic frame, and the whole ideal picture is ruined by that one flaw that draws the eye. Take advantage of Have Faith Pressure Washer Services, LLC's inexpensive and convenient gutter cleaning service, and make sure your home's curb appeal picture has an eye-catching frame in the right way.

5. Preserves Landscaping

Your home's landscaping is an essential part of your overall curb appeal, and property value and gutters divert water away from expensive landscaping features. Clogged gutters create unmanaged water flow that can erode and destroy landscaping. Keeping your gutters flowing with regular pressure washing and gutter cleaning is inexpensive and cost-effective and can save you money on future landscaping expenses.

6. Reduces Opportunities For Pest Infestation

Gutters clogged with leaves, twigs, and sticks offer the perfect nesting areas for rodents, bugs, and birds. These pests can carry germs, bacteria, and diseases, so it's best not to provide them with an opportunity to set up camp in your gutters. They can also add further detract from curb appeal with their droppings, which can also carry disease and contaminants. Plus, properly functioning gutters also prevent groundwater contamination and keep water from pooling on your roof, which can create a breeding ground for microbial pests that can be dangerous to your health, like algae, pollen, allergens, and scary black mold.
