If the Metro Vancouver area is known for anything, it is rain. While residents are grabbing for umbrellas, properties are working overtime managing moisture. Rain fall, snow melt and even condensation can add up – particularly in a clogged gutter system. The good news is that our team of expertly trained Gorillas are able to help keep things running smoothly! A professional Coquitlam gutter cleaning removes clogs and blockages from pipes and downspouts, leaving pathways opened. Say goodbye to leaks, water damage and unnecessary gutter repairs with a bit of help from our experts.
Coquitlam Gutter Cleaning: Hitting the Heights
Gutters have many names but whether you call them perimeter drains or eavestroughs, they all require regular care. Eavestrough cleaning is a year-round project but our Gorillas are busiest during Spring and Fall months. New growth in Spring pushes dead bits away from branches while Fall weather means increased wind and rain. Depending on the type of plant life surrounding your home or commercial property, you might find pine needles, pine cones, seed pods and leaves clogging your drainage system. All across Metro Vancouver, gutter cleaning is more important than ever because of annual rain levels. It is easy to see why regular care is important but these areas are still tough to get at.
The most common ways to get perimeter drains clean is by propping a ladder against a wall and emptying pipes by hand. This leaves property owners opened to the threat of slips and falls. Every year, Canadian homeowners are admitted to the hospital due to falling from heights. Even without the threat of a fall, getting results can be tough. Your drainage system is made up of both covered and uncovered areas. Scooping gunk out of opened areas won’t do much to reach the clogs that are deeper down. This is why our team of Gorillas have come up with a process that works at every level of your system.
The Process At Work
Many areas of your property can be power washed but gutters aren’t one. Instead of using a heavy hand to blast away blockages, our experts have all the right tools to get the job done properly, without causing damage. Proper safety ties and stand-offs are set up before the cleaning process begins. High-Powered vacuums are then used to suck up any sitting debris and water that might have accumulated. Pipes and sides are then scrubbed clean to prevent clogs from forming again. Before your gutter cleaning services are considered complete, your system is then water tested to make sure everything is running smoothly. If you want to keep drainage systems going throughout the year, gutter care can be combined with regular roof cleaning.
