The Ultimate Guide to Gutter Cleaning

Gutters are the hardware that you’ll find at the edge of your roof. Its system comprises the gutter section, which collects the roof runoff water, and the downspout component, which directs the collected water toward the drainage system. Gutters play a vital role in accumulating and redirecting rainwater from the top of the roof and draining it directly to the ground or into a water discharge system away from your house’s foundation.

The roof water drainage vessels prevent the splash of rainwater from the roof to your foundation, in turn protecting it and any flower gardens around the house. As such, it’s critical to have a clean system to avert clogs and a foundation/garden menace. With Greeley Plumbing Heating & A/C on your side, gutter cleaning will be a seamless endeavor.

What We’ll Do

Greeley Plumbing Heating & A/C recommends regular gutter cleaning services for efficient operation no matter the season. Our well-trained and skilled professionals have the tools necessary to clean all the gutters of your house.

First, we’ll assess the state of your gutters to find out whether there are any clogs. If there are, we’ll find their cause. If your gutters have solid debris such as leaves, twigs, and moss, we’ll remove them by hand. We’ll then use a hand spout and a brush to remove any debris attached to the gutter’s surface. Our team will clean any debris from your roof during the gutter cleaning process to avoid any immediate clogging of the gutter system after the cleanup.

Our team will also unclog the downspout in case it has a clog. The process involves running water under high pressure from its drainage end.

Once the process is complete, our technicians will thoroughly clean the gutter section, check it for any damages and leaks, and then repair any problems. We’ll also ensure that the gutter system is in the correct place and make any necessary adjustments to ensure that the gutter sits on the correct gradient, guaranteeing the proper flow of all the captured rainwater.

The Technologies We Use

There’s no single way to clean your gutters. The process can range from a simple to a complex endeavor that needs expert help. It would be best to error to the safer side and have a seasoned gutter cleaning company on call whenever you want to conduct a performance upgrade on your gutters. With an expert company like us, your gutters will benefit from the cutting-edge technology we use.

A wet/dry vacuum comes in handy when removing heavy clogs or debris. There might be stubborn dirt that needs extra attention to come off. If a long time has passed since you last cleaned your gutters, the process might require another powerful machine, the power washer. The fine-spray nozzle of the power washer will work wonders on your roofs’ gutters.

When there’s no substantive clogging, we’ll use a garden horse to successfully remove the debris. The last tool in our arsenal is a leaf blower. This machine comes with a nozzle design that releases a narrow air stream that’s ideal for cleaning gutters.
