A clogged bathroom or kitchen drain tends to receive immediate care but exterior drainage systems are often neglected. Every day, new and exciting items are making their way into your gutter system. Blockages in an eavestrough or gutter can only get worse over time, so it is important to make your Salmon Arm gutter cleaning a part of a regular routine. Let a Gorilla help you to keep things running smoothly with local, specialized service.
Diagnosing Drain Blockages
The most common source of blockages in drains is organic cast off. Sure, there are always a few surprises, like baseballs or shopping bags but for the most part, leaves, twigs and tree needles are prime culprits. Everyday weather like wind and rain dislodge items, leaving them to fall onto rooftops and eventually into gutters. This system is designed to carry water through pipes and away from sensitive areas. As more and more items enter the system, water is unable to pass through and that is when the real problems begin. Sitting water damages materials in and around gutters, as well as creating an inviting place for pests to come and stay. Avoiding these worst-case scenarios is as simple as keeping pipes clean, so how is it done?
The Gorilla Skill Set
The experts at Gorilla Property Services don’t just treat blockages – we conquer them! Gutters are made up of covered and uncovered pipes along with a downspout. It is possible to run a hand through those opened areas, collecting debris but it is not recommended. Climbing up on a ladder, resting against a wall or fixture can be dangerous, so leave it to the professionals. Experienced maintenance specialists arrive on scene with top-notch safety equipment and the tools to leave your drainage system sparkling clean. High-powered vacuums suck up clogs and blockages while the empty pipes are sponged clean. In order to make sure that a job is done well, systems are water-tested to confirm that there is nothing hidden away behind the scenes.
