Your home’s gutters play a vital role in maintaining the integrity of your roof and preventing standing water and water damage in the area around your home’s foundation. But over time, foliage and debris can clog your gutter system, resulting in gutters that actually do more harm than good. So in today’s article from Squeaky Clean Windows and Glass Restoration, a Dallas window cleaning and glass repair company that also specializes in gutter cleaning, we’ll explore why it’s so important to invest in regular gutter cleaning for your home.
Why is Gutter Cleaning Important?
Your home’s gutters play an essential role in your home’s roof drainage system, as they divert water off the roof and into specific drainage areas.
Without gutters, the rain water would simply run off the edge of the roof, resulting in erosion in the area surrounding your home’s foundation. This could lead to standing water, which would ultimately penetrate any flaws in the foundation, resulting in water damage and damage to your home’s foundation.
When the gutters are clogged by leaves, sticks, acorns and other debris, they cannot effectively divert water toward the downspouts for drainage. What’s more, the plant debris can actually accumulate to a degree where water pools on the roof, resulting in a situation where water penetrates the roof, causing leaks and water damage to your attic and other areas of your home. Most roofs are not truly water tight, as they’re designed for the water to flow over the roof. The prolonged contact with standing water can allow the water to penetrate into the roof.
Therefore, routine gutter cleaning is absolutely essential to maintaining your home’s roof and foundation, keeping your property leak-free and free of water damage.
What Does Gutter Cleaning Entail?
When you hire a Dallas gutter cleaning services provider like Squeaky Clean Windows and Glass Restoration, your gutter cleaning project will typically be performed in a matter of a few hours, depending upon the size of your home.
The first step is to clear out the debris and foliage from the gutters. This can be done in a few ways, using air pressure, water pressure or manually. Once all of the debris is removed, the gutters are typically flushed out with water to eliminate any sediment or other small bits of debris that were left behind.
This flushing process also provides your gutter cleaning service providers with an opportunity to spot any leaks or damage that can impact the efficacy of your gutter and roof drainage system. The flushing will also allow us to confirm that the gutters and downspouts are all working properly.
