Dealing With Dryness

Communities all across Canada are dealing with dreaded dry spells. A lack of rain in the forecast might be stealing focus but now is the perfect time to deal with outdoor drama. Drier climates tend to see more organic debris dislodged and spread out over properties. This might clutter up lawns but your gutters are also filling up. As soon as dark clouds start to form, you will find yourself overloaded with a full eavestrough and nowhere for water to drain! This might sound troublesome, but you can avoid all of that with a little help from a friendly neighbourhood Gorilla! A professional gutter cleaning service will make sure that your drainage system is running smoothly all year long.

It can be difficult to notice when your gutters are becoming clogged. Every last piece of debris that makes its way into your system contributes to a future blockage. Obviously smaller pieces of debris will take longer to accumulate and become obvious but larger items can be instant trouble. It is easy to let the condition of your gutters fall to the wayside but this can lead to water damage, leaks, flooding, mould and even pest infestation. By making your eavestrough cleaning a semi-annual affair, you can avoid damage and get the full lifespan out of your gutters.

In order to get the best results for your eavestrough cleaning, our Gorillas operate using top of the line safety features and tools. By using vacuums instead of just hands, even the smallest pieces of debris are sucked up and disposed of. When you want the best results for your gutter cleaning service, all it takes is one phone call to a Gorilla. Call today to book an appointment to keep your drains, draining and your gutters clean!


A Clean Slate For Your Gutters

gutter cleaningAs the weather gets warmer, it is easy to be distracted by the great outdoors. Canada is known for having one of the most beautiful landscapes in the world, so it is no wonder that you want to go out and explore! With all of these great things on your to-do list, it is easy to forget chores at home. Your home or workspace will survive the occasional forgotten dish or unswept floor, but clogged gutters can mean real trouble.

From the outside, a clogged or blocked gutter system might not seem like the end of the world but a bit of debris can cause a ripple effect throughout your property. Rain does not stop falling and moisture does not stop collecting just because you haven’t been able to empty out your gutters. Opened eavestrough systems collect fallen and dislodged debris kicked up by wind or discarded from surrounding plant life. The more that falls, the more that layers over itself and the more dense your clogs become. With nowhere to go, water simply sits. Sitting water is a great home for mosquitos or other pests. In addition, this water adds weight to fixtures and can pull them away from their attachments. As sitting water adds up, it can rest up against construction materials, softening them and wearing away at them. This means leaks, water damage and even flooding over time.

By combining both elbow grease and state of the art technology, our Gorillas are able to get the best results for your gutter cleaning service. There are plenty of reasons that can’t handle your gutter cleaning all on your own, but that does not mean that you have to live with a clogged drainage system. Our Gorillas are outfitted with all the right safety equipment, training and vacuums to clean blockages out of every pipe and downspout.

If you are noticing slow draining from your system, an eavestrough cleaning is in the cards for you! By making your gutter cleaning a part of your home maintenance routine. Twice annual maintenance can make a world of difference to your gutters!


Keeping Communities Clean

Property owners need to work hard to keep their residential or commercial spaces clean and inviting. This is tricky enough on a good day, but when you are going up against nature – or vandalism – it can be overwhelming! A clean property is a top priority for most owners, but everyone needs a helping hand once in a while. When you call in a Gorilla, you are getting well-rounded services for your home or workspace.

First Impressions Count

The first impressions of your property are all based on aesthetics. Something as simple as a cloudy or dirty window can be unappealing to visitors or traffic. With a ton of industry experience behind our home maintenance experts, our Gorillas can wipe, scrub and polish your property to perfection. Chores such as pressure washing or graffiti removal can maintain the look of your exterior walls or concrete. Over time, a lot of moisture or humidity means unwanted staining or growth. Blasting away algae with a pressure washer sounds like a great idea but without knowing how to use it, the process can cause damage. Trust a Gorilla technician to get your windows clear, your decks clean and your graffiti gone.

When you want your property to look its best, a combination of services can give new life to your residential or commercial space. There are dozens of pest control companies out there, but none are as committed as our Gorilla technicians! Prompt, professional service by a local company is only a phone call or click away.


Proactive Pressure Washing

There is hardly a Canadian out there who couldn’t benefit from a little spring cleaning. This could mean getting rid of clutter, cleaning out your closet or scrubbing the outside of your property. Now, some of these you can do in an afternoon but without the right tools or technique, a pressure washing just isn’t one! The exterior of your property is constantly collected new layers of dirt, debris, discolouration and growth. If the outer layers of your property could use a tune-up, call a Gorilla for your pressure washing services.

There are plenty of services out there that are willing to rent out pressure washers. Finding one of these power tools is as easy as visiting your local hardware store. Setting up a pressure washer and beginning to spray seems simple enough but it can cause a ton of damage. Instead of putting yourself in a compromised position, let our Gorillas set you up for success!

Why Call a Gorilla?

Pressure washers are a common tool for commercial property owners. These machines can clear all sorts of stains from all sorts of properties. Our Gorillas can spruce up your property visually and even from a safety perspective. Built up algae on hard surfaces can make surfaces slippery, leading to slips and falls. By using a multi-step approach to your pressure washing service, our Gorilla provide clients with a clean and welcoming outdoor space. All of our Gorillas are local to your area and able to provide friendly, local service.


Hitting Heights This Spring

Now that snow has begun to melt away, the surfaces around your property are starting to show. Things that have been covered up or buried for the last few months are finally seeing the light of day – and they are not always a great sight. Green grass is always welcome but seeing green across your rooftop is a real problem. If you find yourself dealing with unwanted growth, have a Gorilla help with a roof cleaning and moss removal service.

What Moss Means For You

Roof clutter does not look great, even at the best of times. In addition to looking terrible, organic clutter holds on to moisture. This moisture paves the way for unwanted growth; moss in particular! When moss begins to take root on your roof, there are nothing but problems to follow. Moss spreads around shingling, damaging materials as it goes. At its best, your roof can withstand a lot from the outside elements but when materials are softened or damaged, a roof can’t do its job.

Available For Routine Maintenance

The best way to keep moss and roof clutter at bay is to make your roof cleaning and moss removal, a routine operation. Twice annual maintenance limits growth and makes a healthy lifespan for your roof. Not every property will have the same rate of growth. Shade, surrounding plant life and climate all play a role in the condition of your roof. If you are unable to make the climb for decluttering, just have a Gorilla handle it for you.


Spring Graffiti Removal

As spring is beginning to peak out from behind winter’s shadow, everyone is keen to get outside. The nights might still be chilly but that does not deter graffiti artists from hitting the streets. Problems with spray paints are not seasonal and can pop up at any given time! You might go to bed with clean walls or windows, only to wake up and find an unwanted design.

Your home or storefront might have kept you warm throughout winter, and now it is time to return the favour with our graffiti removal services.

Spray paints are easy to come across. There is hardly a department or hardware store around that does not sell aerosol paints in one way or another. These tools are easy to transport, light to carry and a real problem for property owners. Since we can’t get rid of spray paint as a whole, we need to learn how to deal with them! Over the years, our Gorillas have dealt with all every sort of paint type on every sort of exterior and developed a plan to handle them all.

When you are in need of graffiti removal, the key to success is having the right team in your corner. Over the years, our Gorillas have developed a multi-step process to get rid of graffiti on any surface. By combining Gorilla Foaming Cleansers, elbow grease and a bit of creativity, our Gorillas are always working to keep our community clean. Don’t spend another day advertising any unwanted designs when our graffiti removal services can have your home or storefront looking great in no time at all! Call today to book an appointment with one of our Gorillas.


Go-Getters On Gutters

Moisture is a real problem for Canadian property owners. Your roof and walls might do a good job keeping it out but it leaves them worse for the wear. When it comes to combatting rainy weather, the most valuable tool that you have in your arsenal is your gutter system. Whether you call it a gutter or an eavestrough, the perimeter drain system running along your roof is vital to the smooth running of your property. As important as these fixtures might be, they are difficult to keep clean. Instead of struggling with slow draining or impassable gutters, call a Gorilla for your gutter cleaning service.

Over the course of the year, all different types of debris fall to the surface of your roof. Most roof shapes are designed to let this clutter roll off of surfaces, but this often means that it is also directed right into your gutter system. With both opened and unopened areas, your eavestrough collects seed pods, needles, leaves, sticks and even pests. This creates blockages in reachable and unreachable areas that just cannot be removed by hand.
When it comes to conquering your clogged gutters, our Gorillas have all the tools, technique and training to get the job done right. Using high-powered vacuums can remove small to moderate items, while the larger pieces of debris are pulled out with paws. Once your system appears to be clear of all major blockages, pipes and downspouts are water tested. By confirming that water is free-flowing, our Gorillas can be sure that there is nothing hiding out behind the scenes.

Call today to speak with one of our Gorillas and get the ball rolling on your gutter cleaning.

Spring Is In The Air

It might not feel like it but spring is just around the corner. Seasons change in the blink of an eye but the issues that come along with it might require a closer look. As spring time rolls around, your property needs care from top to bottom. These types of cleanings can be hazardous to your property and, without the right techniques, hazardous to your body as well. Instead of taking risks with your home or your person, call a Gorilla to help with your spring cleaning.

With Spring fast approaching, plant life is kicking back into full gear, meaning growth and shedding of natural debris. There is nowhere for these natural materials to fall than onto your roof and into your gutters. A bit of clutter here and there might not seem like the end of the world but it can definitely lead to larger issues later on. By making your roof and gutters a part of your maintenance routine, you can get ahead of these issues before they appear! Our roof cleaning and moss removal keeps the surface of your roof clean while our gutter cleaning services keep things running smoothly.

While our Gorillas might be handling the upper levels of your property, the ground level usually gets the most attention from passersby. Staining happens organically as well as through vandalism. If your cleaning entails a necessary stain removal, our graffiti removal and pressure washing services can help you out. Spotty and streaked windows might have been a problem before but it doesn’t need to be any longer. Our window cleaning services can reach any pane up to four storeys. Over the course of the winter, salt, dust and dirt can accumulate around the sills and frames of windows.

Don’t let a seasonal change wreak havoc on your property needlessly. There is a Gorilla around every corner waiting to help get your property looking its best just in time for summer.

Gorilla Gutter Cleaning

As summer comes to a close, most Canadians are focused on soaking up every last minute of sunshine. It is important to enjoy every bit of summer fun but making sure that your property is taken care of is important too. If you are having a difficult time scheduling chores, our Gorillas can help you take a load off! Our gutter cleaning service can help keep your system running while giving you peace of mind.

The Importance Of Routine

More often than not, property owners do not address maintenance issues until they are, in fact, issues! You might not think about the condition of your roof until cracks and leaks begin to appear but you do not have to wait for trouble. By calling up our Gorillas for a semi-annual gutter cleaning, you prevent carrying issues over from season to season. This prevents headaches by giving property owners a fresh start to each season.

Gutter Cleaning
Fall months come and go quickly so a little preparation will go a long way to getting your property winter ready. As plants and trees begin to lose their leaves, the gutters around your space see the brunt of this clutter. A few leaves here and there might not seem like a big issue, but these pile up. Blocked gutters retain moisture and make way for rot, invasive plant growth, property damage and infestations.

Gorilla Gutter Cleaning: What Sets Us Apart

Full removal of clogs and blockages is the secret to any good gutter cleaning service but this is easier said that done. More often than not, gutters are approached for removal by hand but this is not the most effective solution. In fact, it isn’t much of a solution at all. In order to make sure that your gutters are fully cleaned every time, our Gorilla technicians use high-powered vacuums in order to remove even the thinest foundation layers of debris that run inside your system. Larger items like sticks and leaves can be pulled by hand but if a foundation layer is allowed to stick around, it will trap, hold and collect new debris. Complete removal is key to having a smooth-running system and that is why our Gorillas provide flow-testing before we consider the job completed.

Instead of wasting time with temporary solutions, have your system completely cleared with our gutter cleaning services. Call today to book an appointment for our gutter cleaning service.
