Maintaining Your Gutters
Gutters get filled with leaves and debris and if unkept, it will cause your gutters to not work efficiently. Gutters are designed to capture water from your roof and move it away from your home foundation. If they are not cleaned regularly, water will just pour over the sides, rendering them useless. Even some types of gutter guards don't fully keep gutters from becoming clogged. Gutters need to be cleaned out every year and sometimes twice a year depending on how many trees are near your home. We clean out gutters by climbing a ladder and removing the leaves by hand. We offer an additional service called a gutter flush to clean out downspouts. We hoist our pressure washing wand up ladders to push water through the downspouts in hopes of pushing any blockages through to the end of the downspouts.

Hard to Reach Areas Where Ladders Don't Reach
Typically when we soft wash a house or business, the exterior gutters get cleaned too. However gutters are not all equal. Depending on the age, gutter material, sun exposure and washing maintenance over the lifespan of the gutter, some gutters will remain dingy, dirty or even tiger striped. When this happens, we offer a special service called gutter whitening. We must purchase a special solution that is applied by dipping a brush in a bucket of the solution and hoisting our pole up to manually scrub each and every area of the gutter. It is tedious, difficult work but worth every penny to not have to repaint or replace your gutters.
Disclaimer: Even with gutter whitening methods, on occasion we encounter gutters so neglected that they are beyond the ability to get them completely clean.
