Taking care of your property is a lot like taking care of your body – it all starts with the fundamentals. While it is easy to tell if you are hungry or thirsty, the signs that your home is in need are a little more subtle. Take gutters, for instance, these fixtures suffer silently for years but can mean real trouble when they are ignored. Instead of dealing with the aftermath of clogged drains, have a Gorilla handle your Calgary gutter cleaning as part of a seasonal tune-up for your home or workspace.
Dealing With Debris
It is easy to tackle debris when it is at street level, but clearing out gutters is not as simple as grabbing a rake. While you are bagging up leaves and sticks collected from your lawn, these same materials are piling up on your roof. Areas like roofing and gutters can go untouched for years, opening the door to water damage, softening of materials and more damage to your home.
The main culprits to clogged pipes and downspouts are leaves, twigs, needles, seed pods and pinecones. These items separate based on weight, building up blockages and making it impossible for your system to drain. As water backs up, it sits against construction materials, softening them and wearing away at important features and protective layers. From there, water can soak into openings. When dealing with excess moisture, leaks and water stains are a best case scenarios, and harmful mold or health hazards are the worst. Regular eavestrough cleaning helps clients keep an eye on the condition of their residential properties, multi-unit spaces or commercial units. Leak repairs and fixture replacements are expensive and time consuming, so choose a professional gutter cleaning service in Calgary as a cost-effective alternative.
The Gorilla Method
The difference between a good job and great job in the property maintenance field is consistency. That is why our Gorilla experts highly recommend twice annual servicing to keep your system running. The longer that you allow organic debris to collect within your gutter system, the more you open up the door for potential problems within your structure. Checking perimeter drains once in spring and once in fall can mean a smooth-running system all year long.
Instead of the traditional methods of ‘by-hand’ gutter cleaning, our Gorillas use portable vacuums and other tools to completely remove the bottom layers of debris that have formed along the base of your system. Instead of assuming that the job is done, we test downspouts to ensure that there are no hidden blockages within pipes. Before and after photos are then used to show clients how far their system has come. In order to keep your property safe and secure, all of our Gorillas operate with liability insurance. Being fully insured protects both our staff and your home.
