Gutter Cleaning Denver
What is the importance of gutter cleaning?
Our gutter cleaning Denver services keep your gutters clean and helps you avoid expensive damage to your home. The purpose of gutters is to get rainwater and snow melt away from the immediate area surrounding your house. Dispersing the water further away protects your foundation from water damage.
Allowing stormwater and snow melt to flow unimpeded away from your home prevents water from entering your basement or crawl space. Clogged gutters overflow allowing water to drain near the foundation, potentially causing basement and crawl space moisture or flooding problems. During the winter, this water can freeze and crack your foundation. On the roof, if the water overflows and gets behind your gutters, it can cause wood rot in the fascia boards creating structural problems that could end up with collapsed gutters, and even more water entering the roof’s structure. Furthermore, the roof structure and exterior siding can experience damage, and erosion, topsoil removal and other landscaping problems can develop.
For these reasons, it is important to clean your gutters on a regular basis, and to make any repairs right away. If you neglect your gutters too much, you may end up having to replace them.
How often do gutters need to be cleaned?
In Colorado, due to our four seasons, you should clean your gutters at least twice a year.
Gutters should be cleaned in the late fall after leaves have fallen and twigs have fallen from trees. They should also be cleaned in late spring to remove debris such as flower petals, seeds, pollen, pine needles, and other debris that can build up. If you live in a heavily forested area, you may have to clean your gutters more often.
In addition to cleaning your horizontal gutters, make sure your vertical downspouts are not clogged with debris that has worked its way from the gutter into the downspout.
Are there ways to clean gutters less often?
Gutter guards and screens offer protect your gutters from leaves, twigs, and other debris. Even so, gutter guards and screens are not 100 percent effective, so you will still have to clean out your gutters once a year or so.
Gutters guards allow water to flow into the gutter while simultaneously keeping leaves and other debris out. There are various gutter guards and screen to choose from, and we can help you select the designs that are best for your home and environment.
