One of the most important questions you the homeowner should be asking yourself before hiring a Gutter Cleaning Company is “Are they Licensed and Insured”? You will be surprised at the answer. Gutter cleaning doesn’t take any fancy equipment or expensive tools, so it opens the doors for anyone who can climb a ladder to start their own so called business. The problem these fly by night one man shows do not set up the proper licensing or Insurance. Insurance is impossible to set up if there isn’t correct licensing in place. So then these over night businesses start charging people to clean their gutters. If an injury occurs while they are on a homeowners property, the law entitles them to sue the homeowner. Someone’s insurance has to pay for it. At A Pane in the Glass we carry a Two Million Liability Insurance policy and can provide it upon request.
Gutters are a necessary part of every roof, and sometimes we take them for granted. It’s easy to forget that we need to maintain and take care of them in order to keep them working properly. Gutters can quickly fill up with debris, which can clog and cause all kinds of problems. Consider hiring a professional Coeur d Alene gutter cleaning company to take care of things for you so you can rest easy knowing they are clean and clear.
Cleaning them yourself can be a taxing and hazardous job. Instead of climbing a tall ladder and risking a fall, hire a professional to do the job with the right equipment. They’ll also save you time, freeing you up for the activities you’d prefer to be doing. Nobody looks forward to this dirty job, so don’t waste your down time on such an unsavory task.
Importance of Gutter Cleaning
Why is it so important? The main purpose for a gutter is to direct the water safely off your roof into an area that’s ok to absorb water. From there the water finds its way away from the houses structure or into a nearby storm drain. This is difficult if it is clogged by debris or a kids ball. When this happens it can lead to major problems if gone ignored. How often should you have them cleaned may be a question you are wanting to ask. I can answer that – Twice a year is most common in the spring and again in the fall. Both seasons are equally important as in the spring the rains are quite common. In the fall the leaves and other tree debris is falling.
There are many reasons why you should have them cleaned regularly. They are meant to catch the overflowing rain water as it pours off your roof. They are meant to protect your home and living space from damage during storms and inclement weather. Keep your house in the clear by having them cleaned on a regular basis. Water that accumulates on your roof will fall towards the sides to be collected in the rain gutter. Why not just let it flow straight of f the side of the house? Proper flow will help protect the sides of your house from leaks and water damage that could occur as the water repeatedly runs down to the ground. Keeping excess water off the sides of your home will also help maintain the appearance. Water flow can ruin paint and leave dirt behind, so make sure to avoid this by having them properly maintained.
Clogged rain gutters are the perfect breeding grounds for all kinds of nasty bacteria, including mold. The debris creates moist, dark areas which are ideal for the growth of these undesirable substances. Mold is never something you want anywhere near your home as it can cause serious health problems under certain circumstances. Keep it away more easily and prevent a major build-up.
While you can clean them yourself, there are many benefits to hiring a professional to do the job for you. As mentioned above, hiring someone will save you time and help minimize potential risk. There are so many demands on your schedule, why not free up a few extra hours by hiring a professional Coeur d Alene gutter cleaning service?
Professionals have the proper equipment and safety practices to help avoid accidents as much as possible. They do this for a living, so they have much more experience balancing and positioning a ladder. They know what they’re doing and they’re good at it, so take advantage of their skills and keep your feet firmly planted on the ground.
When hiring a licensed insured Company make sure to find one that will do the job thoroughly. You want to make sure that all of the debris is cleared out and there is no residue left over. Any remaining scum will immediately start accumulating debris again, creating a blockage or slowing the flow of excess water. Make sure the company you choose has a good history and positive reputation.
