Although some people think of getting their gutters cleaned as a task for spring or fall, you may need cleaning more than twice per year. If your home is surrounded by trees — especially pine trees — you may need more frequent gutter cleaning. While it may be tempting to pull out a ladder and clean your eaves yourself, ladders and gutters can be fickle and treacherous. A professional gutter cleaning service has the tools, experience, and safety knowhow to clear out your gutters without risking your safety. Here are three reasons to hire a professional gutter cleaning service this summer.
Cleaning Gutters is Dangerous
Even under the best of circumstances, cleaning your own gutters can be extremely unsafe. Common risk factors like a multi-story house, old ladders, working alone, and working on unstable footing can turn this seemingly simple chore into a recipe for disaster. When you enlist the help of Paul’s Lawn Service for your gutter cleaning needs, you can put to rest your concerns about personal safety and injury. Our landscaping experts are also experienced gutter cleaners. Hiring professionals to clean your gutters eliminates the worry that you or your family members will get injured.
Inexperienced Cleaners Can Cause Gutter Damage
There are many ways that gutters can become damaged, and getting cleaned by an inexperienced homeowner is one of them. What you think is a stubborn root, weed, or leaf in your gutters could actually turn out to be a vital piece of mounting hardware. With one wrong yank, you can accidentally detach your eaves from your home. A professional gutter cleaner knows how to clear debris effectively without damaging your home. Also, they will be able to inform you of any existing damage that needs to be addressed. Broken hangers, sagging pipes, and leaks can all cause further damage if they go unnoticed. Having a professional clean and inspect your gutters regularly is an essential part of their maintenance.
Gutters Need to be Completely Clean and Clear
If you clean your gutters yourself, you run the risk of leaving gunk and debris behind. Dirty, clogged drains can harm your home’s foundation. Gutters collect rainwater from your roof and direct it away from the home. When this system is broken or ineffective, water can pool at the base of your house, either flooding your basement or weakening the foundation. Additionally, gutters that are filled with leaf litter and twigs can invite wildlife like bees, wasps, squirrels, and other unwanted guests. A clean gutter can help create a healthy home, and the experts at Paul’s Lawn Service are ready to help.
