What Canadian does not enjoy the changing colours and falling leaves during the fall season? Less lovely, however, is the way that they collect in your gutters. You might not give a lot of though to your eavestrough but it is an important part of your property. If you’re not sure how to treat this part of your property, or don’t have the time, call our Gorillas! Our Edmonton gutter cleaning can take the pressure off of you and your drainage system.
Edmonton Eavestrough Cleaning: How It Works
Without the right help, property maintenance is a full-time job, on top of your regular work day. Properties around Canada are always evolving to be more comfortable and efficient. Your eavestrough is a big player in these categories. This drainage system not only collects water but directs it away from the edges of your property. This stops flooding of gardens, backyards and prevents water from leaking into the interior area of your property. When these pipes and downspouts become clogged, there is nowhere for this water to go.
Sitting water can backup against the surface of your roof, softening and wearing away important construction materials. This means repairs, replacements to both the exterior and even interior areas. Organics break down, retaining moisture and trapping it against the materials of your roof. This creates a sort of miniature eco-system inside your gutters. A cozy, damp and covered space attracts a ton of insects as well. The only way to protect your home from the inside out is to keep this environment clear of blockages.
Edmonton Gutter Cleaning: Routine, Routine, Routine
Having a routine is the easiest way to ensure that your drainage system continues working properly. Regular maintenance keeps your gutters free of blockages. In most cases, our Gorillas are called out twice annually. Regular services in spring and fall, clean and prep gutters for the winter season and the melt that follows.
More than simply removing the materials by hand, our Gorillas are outfitted with the most appropriate tools of the trade, such as specially-designed vacuums to remove not only the larger blockages but small bits of debris as well, such as needles and twig. In addition to clearing these gutters, our Gorillas want to keep home and property owners in the loop at all times and that is why we provide before and after photos, in order to provide our customers peace of mind (while safely on the ground!).
