It might not sound like such an important task, but keeping your gutters free of any dirt or debris should always be included in your roof cleaning routine. Clogged gutters can lead to problems in various areas of your home including stained siding, sagging ceilings, water penetration, and even basement flooding.
Gutter cleaning is an inconvenient but necessary task that every homeowner must do in order to keep their homes in top shape. After all, gutters are the components of the home that prevent rainwater from damaging your siding, roofing, landscaping and, most importantly, the foundation. Unfortunately, there are some homeowners that only maintain their gutters once a year and there are many reasons why you shouldn’t do this.
In this post, Sunco Window Cleaning LLC discusses the five common reasons why you need to maintain your gutters year round.
The decision to sign up for services such as window, roof or gutter cleaning is less about whether you want a nice and tidy-looking home and more about whether you value time over money. Who doesn’t want a neat home? Admittedly, the time vs. money debate is all a matter of opinion. However, one study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS) may have introduced a new factor to consider: happiness. Researchers have found that paying for cleaning services may not be about time or money, after all, but rather, happiness.
Summer’s the best time for home improvements. There’s less rainfall during the season, creating fewer complications for extensive renovation work. Plus, with your neighbors likely away on vacation, disturbances to the neighborhood can be minimized.
Rainwater is hardly ever just water. Calcium, magnesium and other compounds are typically dissolved in the droplets that shower your home during a rainy day. These minerals make up what is known as hard water. If you’ve ever had a professional do gutter cleaning on your home before, then you’ll know how damaging these minerals can be on copper or aluminum surfaces. For glass, however, it’s a slightly different story.
