We check out your complete above-ground gutter and downspout system. Looking out for problem areas that may require specific attention we check any obvious impediments in the channels and downspouts. We also take the time to notice missing screws, loose-fitting joints, and spots where your gutters may have noticeably pulled away from the fascia. Carrying out this inspection allows the professional technician to properly evaluate the distinct issues with your gutter system, specific areas that may need attention, and to determine the exact actions needed to ensure an efficiently functioning gutter system.

After the assessment, the gutter cleaning specialist will carefully position an extension ladder to access the starting point of cleaning the gutters. Depending upon problem spots found during the course of the inspection, the technician may choose to remove obvious large blockages first or may simply start at one end of the guttering working their way to a downspout. For two-story homes, most experts choose to clean the gutter system beginning with the highest level and work their way downward. Durable work gloves, a garden or gutter scoop, and a bucket are very beneficial when cleaning the gutters. When particularly stubborn clogs are found the professional may decide to utilize a plumber’s snake or high-pressure water to clear the obstruction. Finally, after clearing away all the debris the gutter cleaner uses a low-pressure water hose to rinse the downspouts and gutters and check for the appropriate functioning of the whole gutter system. At this point, the professional may have the opportunity to recognize problems with your guttering that were not obvious before the cleaning. The service technician will advise you of anything you should be on the lookout for over time.
