Dirty gutters are more than an eyesore. They are a real danger to the structural integrity of your home. Neglected gutters can harm your roof and your foundation. Plus, they often attract harmful pests. Parkway Power Wash can clean your gutters now before the cold winter weather strikes and causes more gutter issues.
When your gutters are clean, they collect water and route it to the downspouts that direct it away from your home’s foundation. When gutters are clogged, water spills over the sides and drenches the ground below. As a result, your home may settle, causing cracks in your foundation and leaks in your basement.
Leaves fill your gutters every fall and cause standing water. If the gutters are not cleaned, water will freeze and cause water to pool on your roof. These water pools can damage your shingles or tiles and cause your roof to leak.
Clogged gutters can also attract pests. In warmer weather, they draw mosquitoes, which often carry disease. Other pests such as termites also love the wet and moldy mess in dirty gutters. And once pests get a foothold, they can infest your entire house.
Dirty gutters are a safety issue. In addition to attracting pests, the water runoff can contaminate your water supply. They can expose you to dangerous mold and mildew that can affect your health. Also, cleaning your gutters without the right equipment can easily lead to falls. It’s simply safer to call the professionals.
