Why do you need to clean your Gutters?
Seed pods from springtime trees and autumn leaves land on the roof and flow down into the gutters and downspouts. This can block the flow of water and cause dams that make the water run back under the roof boards or shingles. In the winter, ice jams form and can cause more serious problems.
Proper gutter cleaning a few times every year is necessary to keep the water flowing smoothly and going in the right direction. This helps maintain your roof, prevent leaks, and also stops overflow from cascading down into your gardens or landscaping and making a mess of things.
Some homeowners try to tackle this difficult and dangerous job themselves. However, the professionals have the right tools and know-how to complete it safely and to the best standards. High pressure water may be used to clear blockages or debris is removed manually.
Is Roof Cleaning necessary?
Although roof services can remove large debris and branches from the shingles, it also takes care of things like moss, lichen, and mildew that accumulates on the shingles and starts to break them down. These may not be acute problems like a tree crashing down on the house, but they work to damage the waterproof nature of the roof over time. Most residential property owners do not want to climb up a tall ladder to the roof. They also do not have the tools and machines necessary to do a good job.
Most cleaning is done with the help of pressurized water. Pressure washing does not damage most roofing materials and can remove stubborn moss and algae growth quickly. Some roofs require a unique type of broom and manual cleaning. Safety is always a priority with professional roof cleaners.
