If you have ever gone up a ladder and attempted to clean the gutters out on your house? If you have then you know the serious amounts of debris and buildup can be in the gutters. The amount of time that it takes to go around the house on a ladder to remove all the debris can take all day long. The gutters need to be cleaned and debris removed in order for them to work correctly and to do the job that they are supposed to do. The rain water that runs is supposed to be tunneled through the gutters and sent to a downspout that releases the water in a safe area around the house. If this can’t happen because the gutters are full of dirt and debris, the water will end up all around the house and can drain off near your walkway which can be dangerous and a slipping hazard. Big Moose Pressure Cleaning outlines why hiring a professional to pressure wash your gutters and roof can save you tons of time and have your gutters working right.
Having Roof & Gutters Cleaning Professionally Saves You Time
The best part of having a professional clean the roof and gutters is that it saves you so much time. If a homeowner chooses to try and clean the gutters themselves they usually have to use a ladder to reach the space and a standard hose to clean the debris. Most standard hoses don’t have enough pressure to really get down deep and break down the dirt and debris. They also have to go little by little to clean a few feet out at a time. A professional pressure washer can come and take care of the gutter cleaning and clean the roof off as well to stop further debris from entering the gutters.
What Causes Gutters to Clog & Sag?
The problem is that many different kinds of debris can be in the gutters and can start to back up the flow of the water. The gutters are open and dirt, leaves and branches can get in the gutters. Then the water from the rain comes and will start to flow and that will pack the debris that is currently in the gutters and make it start to turn to sludge. The sludge can be hard to remove so having is done quickly and cleaned often is the best way to keep them working.
