Understanding What Is Involved with Gutter Cleaning | Jerrys Gutters

Gutter cleaning is a very important task when it comes home maintenance and home improvement. It involves the process of removing debris, dirt and leaves from your gutters and downspouts. By doing this will help prevent clogs of the gutter system and prevent rain water from flowing freely from the roof to the ground.

When a professional like Jerry’s Gutters cleans gutters, we scoop the debris by hand or machine. Once that is complete, we flush the gutters with water to get any remaining particles, so rainwater can then flow through the system with ease.

By having working gutters will help prevent roof damage as it will prevent rainwater from penetrating through the surface of the roof which can cause the roof to rot as well as weaken the structure of the roof.

In addition, by having clean gutters can help preserve the home’s exterior. That’s because rainwater stuck in gutters creates weight in the gutter and creates a gap in the system. This then can affect shingles or tiles on the roof of the home, soffits protecting the roof and fascia’s which keep the roof ventilated.

Should any of these areas get clogged and begin to not work properly, mildew, mold and algae can begin to grow on the exterior walls which will then lead to paint peeling and chipping.
