Let us clear the sticks, leaves, and everything else caught in your gutters and downspouts for you.
Why Hire Connecticut Gutter Cleaners?
Let’s face it. Getting our gutters cleaned is not an activity we all look forward to. In fact, many of us detest it so much that we never get to it at all. Unfortunately, when our gutters get too full of dirt, leaves, water, and who knows what else, they can actually begin to damage our roofing structures. Jam-packed gutters can also cause damage for the deck level as well. If water is leaking out over our gutters, rather than going down efficiently through the spouts, it could lead to damage on our floor foundations. Don’t try and “survive” another Connecticut winter without clean gutters. Call Caps and Dampers today.
When to Schedule an Appointment?
Gutters should be cleaned at least twice per year, once in the springtime and once in the fall. However, if you live in an area with lots of trees surrounding your home, you may need to get them cleaned more often—especially after a storm hits. After heavy rains, your gutters will suddenly be infused with new layers of junk. If you are trying to clean this yourself, it can be extremely difficult and dangerous. The material inside of the gutter will be murky and hard to remove until the gutters dry 100%. Not to mention the other hazards produced by soggy conditions.
Under no circumstances should you try to clean your gutters from atop the roof. And if using a ladder, avoid having to reach out excessively far. It’s just not worth the risk. Call a local Connecticut gutter cleaning professional like Caps & Dampers to assist you.
Always protect your hands against debris from the gutters, as much of it is filled with harmful bacteria. Also, avoid using a metal scooping tool because you can damage or scratch the gutter. Needless to say, in the time it takes you to procure the right equipment and clean the gutter on your own, you could just call the professionals at Caps & Dampers to take care of the matter in a few minutes.
What Does The Gutter Cleaning Process Look Like?
The basic process for gutter cleaning involves first flushing any still standing water, then making sure that the gutter is properly sloped and won’t require any structural adjustments.
Next, the various sections of the gutter are examined for structural damage or missing parts. If any damage is detected we will replace them. Start getting your gutters ready for all seasons. With Caps and Dampers, we make the process easy.
