Gutters Need Cleaning? Try our New Gutter Cleaning Service!
October 15, 2020
Gutters serve a specific purpose. They whisk water away from a building’s main structure and keep the roofline, siding, and foundation free from damage that can be caused by runoff rainwater. Unfortunately, gutters get clogged with debris, dirt, and leaves, especially in Massachusetts and New Hampshire in the fall.
Gutters also tend to be a haven for pests such as rodents, birds, squirrels, ants, bees, and mosquitoes. These pests can be not only a nuisance but also spread disease to humans that come in contact with the pest or its nesting materials.
If your gutters are getting clogged with falling leaves or debris from nearby trees, or nesting pests, having the gutters professionally cleaned is a smart idea for the overall health of your home or business. Our new gutter cleaning service with SkyVac Gutter Cleaning equipment can be a quick and safe way to clear out those gutters so they can do what they were meant to do.
Common Problems with Clogged Gutters
The main damage that is caused by improperly cleaned gutters is water damage. Properly functioning gutters channel water away from your home and foundation. Without functioning downspouts and gutters, rainwater has an opportunity to puddle near the foundation of a home or business and become a flooding or leaking issue.
Gutters that have been neglected are also prone to spillage onto the roof and siding of homes and businesses. If you notice stains on your walls or ceilings within the interior of your home, you may have a clogged gutter problem.
Pest infestations are also a common problem when gutters have not been sanitized. The wet, debris-filled areas tend to attract mosquitoes, rodents, and other critters looking for a place to set up shop. These pests may be out of sight but they can still cause water and disease issues if left untreated.
