Should You Clean Your Own Gutters or Hire a Professional?
You likely know that cleaning your gutters is a home maintenance task you should check off your list at least once a year. But, you may not know the best way to go about it. Some homeowners will find a way to do everything on their own, while others like to leave things up to the professionals. FloGutters LLC offers gutter cleaning services, and if you need new gutters, we specialize in custom gutter installation. We’ll go over what we believe is the best course of action for cleaning your gutters.
How Do I Know When to Clean My Gutters?
First of all, you may be wondering why gutters need to be cleaned and how to know when it’s time to get the job done. You will need a thorough gutter cleaning if your gutters are not draining as they should be or if they are clogged. If they become clogged frequently without being properly cleaned out, rainwater can overflow and even damage your home’s foundation. That is why we recommend having your gutters cleaned about twice a year, in the spring and the fall.
Can I Just Clean the Gutters Myself?
Some homeowners might feel comfortable cleaning their own gutters, likely those with a single-story home that doesn’t require a ladder to reach them. However, we suggest leaving the task to professionals, especially if the gutters are thoroughly clogged. Plus, you don’t want to take any safety risks if your gutters do require a ladder. A professional gutter cleaning company will have the proper equipment as well as the expertise to clean your gutters safely and effectively.
What If I Actually Need New Gutters?
When we come to your house to clean your gutters, we could provide you with an estimate for new gutters for your home. Gutters that have been properly installed will help to prevent multiple costly home repairs, like those caused by water intrusion damage and leaks under your roofline. New gutters are a worthwhile investment, protecting your basement, foundation, and slab from water damage that could have been avoided. We will be able to determine the condition of your gutters and recommend your next steps.
