3 Gutter Upgrades to Consider this Summer

We’ve been partnering with the Kings of Clean to offer complete home cleaning for homes in our area for a while now. We found this article on their website to be a great explanation of why our gutter cleaning works so well as a companion to their larger pressure washing service. While we offer professional cleaning by hand of your home’s gutter system, they offer pressure cleaning of your exterior walls, deck, and driveway. We found this paragraph from their article particularly helpful to explain why gutter cleaning is so important:

One inch of rainfall on a 1,000 square foot roof sends more than 600 gallons of water into your gutters. Properly installed and maintained gutters and downspouts take on all that water and send it away from your home and property; when they’re clogged, the water cannot flow through the gutter and downspouts and away from the house. Some of the rainwater will find another path and end up where it will do extensive damage to your house and property.

It’s important to remember just how much water lands on your roof in the course of a given year, and all of that water has to go somewhere. The purpose of a well designed home gutter system is to divert that water away from your home. If your gutters aren’t properly draining, we’ll often see a clear sign of that with water damage or algae growth on the sides of your home. This tends to concentrate on the side that gets the most shade, but with enough water it can grow over the entire home exterior. Once we’ve performed a gutter cleaning and repair, the pressure wash service that Kings of Clean can offer will ensure that the unsightly growth that the water has caused is also washed away.
