Gutters are often overlooked in most homes and it is totally understandable if it doesn’t top your to-do list.
But gutter maintenance is very crucial for the overall condition of your home.
Gutters function to ensure rainwater is drained away from your home hence keeping your roofing, foundation, and walls dry.
But with time, gutters can get clogged from fallen leaves and debris during fall and storms in winter.
With these clogs, gutters can’t work the way they are supposed to, which is why it is important to clean them every once in a while.
Gutter cleaning is not an exciting job. And many people clean their gutters by climbing onto a ladder and slowly pulling out the chunks of debris.
This method can work but it’s time-consuming and some dirt will be left behind and in just a small time the remaining dirt will accumulate again.
To avoid this, there’s always the option of pressure washing gutters, which is more reliable and effective. It is also:
- Fast and easy
- All the dirt will be removed including the little pieces you may not get hold of; the water will push them out.
- Takes time before dirt accumulates back
Do you need a professional?
The process of pressure washing gutters can have some serious kickbacks if not handled the right way with the right tools.
Pushing out wet leaves and debris needs higher pressure, so using a ladder and a pressure washer might not be your best option.
But you can consider using an extension such as a telescoping wand attached to the hose of your pressure washer.
While pressure washing your gutters is very effective, it still has its own downsides which you may not be comfortable with like backsplashes.
But hey you can always hire a professional to take the beating for you.
