Greater Vancouver Gutter (Eavestrough) Cleaning Services
Call them what you will: gutters, eavestroughs, downspouts – this important piece of building infrastructure must be maintained on a regular basis. It’s part of the preventative maintenance of your property, and regular roof and gutter cleaning by professionals is well worth the investment.
Regular Gutter Cleaning Prevents Water Damage
Gutters are a key part of the water management system in any property. A gutter that’s free of dirt and debris will channel water safely away from your building, and send it into the storm sewer system.
A gutter that is clogged with leaves, needles, webs, bug and bird nests and litter short circuits any water management it was designed to control. Heavy water can damage the gutters themselves leading to expensive replacement. It can overflow as well, causing damage and rot to wood framing and soffits. Water could drip down the side of your building to the foundation, creating more damage there. Ongoing dampness can lead to mildew and toxic black mould. Don’t let this happen to your property!
What’s a Good Schedule for Gutter Cleaning?
Unless you have property in a heavily-forested area, a schedule of 1 or 2 gutter cleaning services per year is ideal – once in the spring to clear winter debris, and again in the fall to get rid of leaves, needles and dust.
What’s Involved in Cleaning Gutters?
Gutter cleaning, especially if you are doing a combination roof and gutter cleaning, can be a messy job. Here is how we do it at Mayfair Business Services
