Your gutter system is critical to your home’s performance: funneling water and debris away from your structure. Clogged gutters are one of the main causes of interior water damage, and can quickly become a breeding ground for insects. For optimal results, Kingstowne Lawn & Landscape recommends that gutter maintenance be done two to three times a year. For the convenience of our clients, our sister company, Kingstowne Painting & Home Services, offers comprehensive gutter cleaning that lowers the incidence of water damage.
Benefits of Gutter Cleaning
Gutter clogs occur when trees shed organic litter like twigs, seeds, flowers, bark and evergreen needles. In addition, seasonal rain and snowstorms cause asphalt roofing deterioration, which can lead to gutter and downspout obstruction. Clean, well-maintained gutters help to prevent:
- Premature structural decay
- Wood rot
- Concrete damage due to pooling water
- Landscape destruction
- Unhealthy mold & mildew growth
- Termite & mosquito infestations
- Basement flooding
- Ice dams & interior leaks
- Fire hazards from open debris
Gutter problems are time consuming to repair, and can be costly when preventative maintenance is neglected. In addition, do-it-yourself gutter cleaning can be dangerous, especially when accessing gutters on multi-level homes. Professional gutter cleaning delivers peace of mind while improving gutter lifespan. Kingstowne uses a specially designed pressure washer to clear gutters and restore downspout performance, and our technicians pinpoint gutter problems before they become costly repairs.
