Gutter Cleaning is an important step in your homes exterior maintenance.
Gutter systems on residential homes and commercial buildings are designed to divert water away from the structure’s foundation. Over time, gutters can fill with leaves, pine straw, dirt and debris, leaving them unable to function properly. Gutters that don’t function properly, leave your home or business at risk for possible damage.
As water dams in clogged gutters, it will begin to overflow the gutter trough. Although this may seem harmless, the water is not just running over the outside of the gutter. It’s also running over the inside. This overflowing water can saturate roof sheathing, fascia boards, and soffit causing wood rot, roof leaks, and even rodent infestations. The water that isn’t diverted away from the home can potentially cause both damage to the foundation or drain underneath causing mold and mildew growth in the crawl space.
The best solution for these potential problems is routine gutter maintenance. Chesapeake Hydro-Wash recommends having your gutters cleaned a minimum of 2 times yearly and we offer an affordable gutter cleaning maintenance program for scheduling them more frequently.
