Georgia Gutter Cleaning

Reliable Debris Removal and Gutter Cleaning from Atlanta Roof 911

Gutters serve a valuable purpose in collecting water and moisture from your roof and protecting your home’s foundation from flooding and mold growth. Dirty, clogged gutters aren’t able to remove water efficiently causing overflow, rotting, and rust. Without proper cleaning and maintenance, your home will attract unwanted pests – ants, mosquitoes, and yellow jackets specifically. Your gutters need regular cleaning by a team of professionals to prevent future problems.

Atlanta Roof 911 provides homeowners in Georgia with full-service gutter cleaning. Our gutter cleaning experts are technically trained and follow stringent procedures to provide exceptional service that fits your schedule. Your gutters will be cleaned quickly without a trace of debris left over since we’re prompt and organized. We have some of the most experienced professionals who will answer any questions you might have. Regular gutter cleaning and maintenance is key to maximizing the lifespan of your home’s gutter system.

How Often Should I Get My Gutters Cleaned?

The answer to this question is that it depends on the area, elevation, and surrounding plant growth. You should have professional gutter cleaners help you at least twice a year during the spring and summer or early fall. If you live in an area with abundant tree growth in Georgia, have you gutters cleaned at least four times every year.

Consequences of Ignoring Gutter Maintenance

Forgetting to have your gutters inspected and cleaned by professionals will cause damage which will require either repairs or replacement. It’s best to be proactive and have the problem solved now before it worsens. Here’s what happens when your gutters aren’t cleaned regularly:

Mold and mildew growth

Debris left sitting in your gutters for a long time becomes a breeding ground for mold and mildew to grow. The growth will appear in smaller areas and then spread to the rest of your home, causing a whole medley of health problems – skin irritation, coughing, nasal stuffiness, and severe lung infections in the most vulnerable.

Leaking roof

Neglecting to have your gutters cleaned will cause your roof to leak too. Gutters are supposed to draw water away from the roof. When this doesn’t happen, the roof collects standing water which gets into the shingles and the home’s interior and basement.

Unwanted pests and bugs

The fastest way to have a bunch of uninvited guests (squirrels, mice, birds, and other animals) is having a dirty, clogged gutter. They feast on the rotting leaves and plants and then find ways to infiltrate your home and breed.

Damage to the foundation

Unmaintained gutters allow water to form a pool near the foundation, saturating the surrounding soil, causing the walls to crack and your home to slowly sink into the ground. When it rains, it’s easier for water to penetrate through the home because of a compromised foundation.

Wood rot

Clogged gutters cause water to overflow into the building, causing the soffit boards and wood fascia attaching the gutters to rot. Without maintenance, the rot will spread throughout your home and cause the gutters to sag.

Ugly landscape

Damaged gutters inevitably leak water to your landscape. Overwatering causes the soil to grow heavier, cutting off air, oxygen, and nutrients to the plants. Ultimately, the plants wither, die, and turn dull, making your whole landscape look like something out of a wake.

How is Gutter Cleaning Done?

Our certified crew of gutter cleaners uses the safest equipment to remove all leaves and debris from your roof. They’ll first inspect the roof to check for other possible issues. Then, they use powerful leaf blowers to clear out the largest collection of debris and dirt from your gutters. Larger amalgamations of debris will be picked up by hand. They’ll also check and repair faulty gutter spikes and screws.

Cleaning Gutters Yourself is Risky and Dangerous

Cleaning gutters by yourself is dangerous work best left up to the professionals. Falls from ladders cause more than 164,000 emergency room injuries annually. As a homeowner, you need to take the most precautions to prevent serious injury and death (approximately 300 people die from injuries caused by falling from ladders 10 feet or less). The most prevalent causes of ladder accidents are:

Poor ladder maintenance

Ladders become weak because of poor maintenance, making them very dangerous to work with. Ladders frequently used over the years are especially prone to breaking.

Electrical wiring contact

It’s easy for someone to shock themselves by coming into contact with exposed wiring accidentally. Thermal burns, muscle damage, and cardiac arrest can happen, even if the injury doesn’t appear to be serious.

Dizziness

Many people suffer from dizziness as they climb the ladder towards their roof. They lose balance and fall from the ladder. If you have a documented history of vertigo, dizziness, or other conditions, you’ll need a professional gutter cleaning service to help you.
