When you think about caring for your home, it’s easy to forget about your gutters. Gutters, however, play a crucial role in protecting your Georgia home.
Foxland Cleaning offers a variety of gutter cleaning services to keep your home safe and attractive.
Benefits Of Regular Gutter Cleaning For Georgia Homes
Your gutters do much more than direct water away from your home. They also prevent rainwater from pooling around your foundation, which can lead to flooded basements.
Clean gutters can also help protect your roof from damage during the winter. If you have cluttered gutters, rain can get trapped during the fall season. As the temperatures fall, the water turns into ice that can wedge under your roof and cause expensive damage.
DIFFERENT WAYS TO CLEAN GUTTERS
Gutter Cleaning Vacuum
Gutter cleaning vacuums have started becoming popular about 3 to 4 years ago. There is one franchise that has become popular due to that is the only way they clean gutters. The issue with these vacuums is that most people stand on the ground and use pole system to suck up the debris. Not being able to see the gutters is their biggest hindrance saying they are unable to see if they are able to pull everything out of the gutters or not. Lastly, and most importantly they are unable to vacuum out the downspouts where there's a significant amount of clogging that can occur leaving the job half finished.
Clean by Hand
This is a technique that most companies use when they first begin due to an experience. Cleaning out gutters by hand sounds like it would be a good process however there are some issues such as, when you're cleaning by hand, you're not able to grab all of the debris including the loose dirt which causes hard clogged and downspouts. Also, there is no way to put your hand down far enough in the downspout to clean them out.
Flush out with Water
While this is not a technique to clean out gutters entirely, I have some customers asked if I would flush, they're downspouts with water to remove blockage. Not one time that I have tried that has any of the blockage been removed. This is due to the amount of pressure that is lacking from a garden hose. Yet, if you use a pressure washer it will destroy the downspout system. Flushing with water will not do as good of a job compared to blowing out with a leaf blower.
Using a leaf blower to complete gutter cleaning is the preferred technique that Foxland Cleaning uses. First, we are able to move all of the debris from the roofs as well as the gutters unlike any of the other systems. Secondly, we are able to clean out the downspouts more effectively. the downside with the system is that we have to walk the roof with these blowers. However, with

HOW OFTEN SHOULD YOU GET YOUR GUTTERS CLEANED?
Our suggestion is to get your gutters cleaned every 6 months for most people. The first time you should get your leaves cleaned between December and February after all the leaves fall and before the spring rain starts. Of course, after spring we will have all the blooms from the trees falling down. Which is why we suggest getting your gutters cleaned again in May to July.
