Things to Know About Gutters and How to Clean Them

Gutter cleaning is vital to the maintenance of any home and prevents of soil erosion. Gutters that aren’t cleaned regularly will get clogged with leaves, causing leaks. This in turn will erode the soil from foundations, making your gutters start to lean away from your house and could leak into the basements. Gutter cleaning should be done at least twice a year.

A professional gutter cleaning service will first wash gutters down, using a hose, thus removing debris. Then they will place the hose in the downspout to flush out any debris in it. If the water starts to back up, then something is blocking it. To unblock it, they will push the hose right down until it comes out on the other end. Failing that, they will use a plumbers snake to break though the blocked debris.
