Why Gutter Cleaning is Critical to Protecting Your Home


6 Reasons To Make You Think Twice To Putting Off Your Gutter Cleaning
  1. Roof shingles that come in contact with water in your clogged gutters will deteriorate sooner than the rest of your roof. Then the roof deck becomes damaged. If undetected, insulation gets wet and water gets into your home. You end up with water damage in your ceilings and walls.
  2. 87% of all mold starts in the gutters. Cracks in the home exterior (fascia, soffit, siding, stucco, etc.) allow water inside, which is another way your home can sustain water damage and fueling the spread of allergens.
  3. Whether you have a crawl space, slab or basement, overflowing gutters eventually damage your home's foundation causing foundation shift, cracks and buckling. Standing water can deteriorate structural piers in a home in a crawl space.
  4. Farmer's Almanac is expecting more ice and snow this year. Ice dams in the gutter are heavy causing harm to the homes' gutter system pulling away from the roof causing extensive damage.
  5. More than 500,000 people visit the ER for ladder fall injuries and 300 prove fatal.
  6. Standing water is a breeding ground for mosquitos and other pests. Rodents may find the water, and critters that eat mosquitos will be drawn to your home.

Important Facts on House Washing Every Customer Should Know About


8 Top Reasons To Not Put Off Washing The Exterior Of Your Home

1. A home that's not regularly washed becomes an untreated mold problem to your property, and is harmful to your family and pets.

2. Mold and algae spreads rapidly & feeds off moisture and organic matter wherever it can find it: these pests will creep down your siding, into your gutters, foundation and attic, finding a way into your home.


3. Mold and mildew spores are migrating into your home, contaminating the air you breathe and creating an unhealthy environment for your family all of which are washed away by a house wash. If members of your family suffer from allergies, this is why!
4. The eaves, soffits, and the many cracks, crevices, on the exterior of your home are perfect little hiding places for spiders, mosquitos, stink bugs and all kinds of other creepy-crawlers. Once these tiny disease carrying vermin set up shop, they multiply, building nests. When the weather turns cold, they seek shelter indoors, and they WILL find a way into your home. 

5. More than 6 million children suffer from seasonal allergies in the U.S. According to the American College of Allergy and Immunology causing 90 to 100 deaths per year.

6. Many DIY homeowners will strip and dent their homes and decks in an attempt to save money. The most common mistake is applying too much pressure this will dent your vinyl siding, stucco, and hardy plank. Best to use a trained professional.

7. Mold damages painted surfaces causing big repair costs.

8. Eventually your entire home is infested with these unwanted guests! And it all started on the exterior of your home.
