As such an important feature on the exterior of your home, it pays to make sure that you are investing the proper care in your gutters to help them continue functioning like they should be and to keep them in the best condition possible at all times. One of the best ways to ensure that your gutters stay in the best condition possible is to call in a pressure washing professional at least twice a year to keep them cleaned out and flowing smoothly, and right now in the fall is one of the best times to do so. Having your gutters professionally cleaned by a pressure washing pro can help you drastically extend the life of your gutters, keep them looking great, and to help protect your roof from damage. To help highlight just why the fall months are the perfect time to have your local pressure washing pro clean out your gutters, our team of experts here at Pro Pressure Washing have taken the time to put together this short list that we hope will be helpful in your decision making process.
Leaves Are Your Enemy
In an ideal world, you will be able to wait until all of the leaves have fallen off of the surrounding trees before you have a professional come out and give your gutters a thorough cleaning. In the real world, we understand that differing schedules and availabilities can prevent that from happening, however, our team of experts will do their best leave your gutters spotless. Clearing these leaves out of your gutters before winter begins in earnest will go a long way towards preventing any clog issues over the coming months. Piles of leaves in your gutters have a tendency to trap water, and if this water freezes during the colder temperatures of the coming months, you could have a very serious issue on your hands.
Critters Like To Nest In The Fall
As the weather starts to get colder and colder, more and more critters around your yard are going to be looking for a warm place to nest for the coming winter, and if your gutters are stuffed to the brim with leaves, it can provide them with a very tempting option. Stuffed gutters can be an enticing option for birds, bugs, and rodents alike, and as the temperature continues to drop, some of the more invasive guests might try to start burrowing into your attic. As anyone who has ever dealt with an insect or rodent infestation can tell you, it is a massive headache and not something that is easily taken care of. Having a professional come out and fully clear out your gutters this fall will help to make sure that critters look somewhere else for their winter lodging.
Pressure Washing Companies Are Ready
Fall is the peak season for gutter cleaning services and companies, and as such, many companies will offer specials to ensure you get the service you need at a price that isn’t going to break the bank.
