Gutter Cleaning | Why it's Mandatory

1. Windex

The gutters on your home are filling up, and that ladder behind the garage is peeking out at you like, "Hey, let's do this!" Gutter Cleaning becomes a monotonous chore every other season that you as the homeowner have to take care of.

We have been cleaning gutters for a while now and like to think of ourselves as the Nashville Gutter Cleaning Dentists because we see gutters that get a regular cleaning and gutters that DO NOT. Wooo. Ok.

Why do you want to clean your gutters regularly?

Like the doctor says about your fiber intake, gutter cleaning keeps everything flowing smoothly. Gutter cleaning also keeps water from pooling around your foundation, leading to cracks, separation, and water damage in your investment.

"But, Aaron, I have gutter guards!"

Ok, I know that you have invested your time and money and maybe even a weekend on a roof getting your new gutter guards in place. You are being proactive, and this is good. But what most of us don't know is that only a couple brands of gutter guards are going to do the job that you are expecting, and good ol' Home Depot comes up short here. Here's why:

If you are going the gutter guard route, take a look at some of the links below:

  • 1. Leaf Guard (https://www.englertgutter.com/nashville/about-us/) - These have a patented "lip," as I call it, that allows the water to trail on surface tension into the gutter while completely shielding it from debris.
  • 1. Leaf Guard (https://www.englertgutter.com/nashville/about-us/) - These have a patented "lip," as I call it, that allows the water to trail on surface tension into the gutter while completely shielding it from debris.

The reason I recommend a surface-tension-style gutter guard instead of a regular mesh style guard is due to the pesky needles and "build up" that occur on top of regular Home Depot-style gutter guards.

All in all, having a pro clean your gutters twice yearly will be the best route to keeping your gutters clean because of a few reasons:

  • 1. The professional will do an impromptu roof inspection. (Often Included)
  • 2. The professional will clean the debris off of your roof if any has built up. (Often Included)
  • 3. The professional will provide a clear critical eye close to the edge of your roof and gutters.

If you have guards in place, these inspections tend to fall by the wayside because of the "Well, I have something taking care of that" notion -- ie, gutter guards.

So, this fall or winter, get your gutters cleaned by a pro. Ask them to take a look at the roof for any problems or issues to note and to remove any built-up debris in the valleys. We'll keep those gutters flowing smoothly!
