Every home across American is outfitted with a system that drains the water that builds up on the roof and sends it to a more acceptable place on your property. The gutters are used to keep the majority of the water and moisture off your home so that it does not cause damage such as mold and mildew, and foundation problems. When the gutters are not able to do their job the water will build up and can lead to damage to your roof and exterior walls. Eventually this can lead to more damage in the home. The reasons that gutters stop working is when they are loaded down with dirt and debris. The gutters are open channels and can take on lots of leaves and twigs. Mixed with dirt and water, this can lead to sludge that just stops the water from flowing from the gutters to the downspouts. Cleaning gutters and downspouts is one of the most labor intensive DIY projects you can take on. The best option is to hire a company like Big Moose Pressure Cleaning to pressure wash your gutters and downspouts.
Hiring a Pressure Washer Saves You Time!
If you decide to do your own gutter and downspouts it is going to take a serious amount of time. You will need to be up on a ladder that reaches the top of the house and moving it one section at a time. You can only reach a few feet of the gutters at one time on top of the ladder so you have to go up and down to get around the entire home. You also will be using your hands and garden hose to wash it out which can take some serious time. When you hire a professional to come and clean the gutters and downspouts they will come out with the right equipment to do it right. A pressure washer has a high pressure nozzle that can be maneuvered to clean all the debris and dirt out in a small amount of time. They also will be able to reach further distances which means they don’t need to set back up as often.
Professional Pressure Washing Business is Profitable
You are going to have to pay for the service itself but you will get the money back for sure. When you try and do it yourself you could cause damage to the gutters that you will then need to pay to replace. If you hire a professional to pressure wash them you can rest assured they will not cause damage and if they do they can and will make the repairs on the spot.
