How often should I clean my gutters?
Gutter cleaning services are a form of preventative maintenance that prolong and extend the life of your home and property. Therefore gutter cleaning should be done as often as needed. Typically most of Tru.Shine gutter cleaning service customers clean their gutters once or twice a year. How many times you need to clean the gutters depends on the property, the gutter system, the amount of trees, and the type of the trees around your house. In any case if you see any of the following problems with your gutter consider it a red flag and have your gutter inspected by a professional:
- Rain is over flowing your gutters and powering from the edge
- Your downspouts is not draining water slowly or not draining at all
- you see leaves and sticks coming out of the gutter
- your gutters start to sag
What is Gutter Whitening?
Gutter cleaning pertains to cleaning the inside of the gutters so that rain water from your roof can flow off and away from your property. On the other hand, gutter whitening is cleaning the outside of the actual gutters for the appearance and street view appeal. Although these are two different types of cleanings, both are equally needed.
Our method of gutter whitening uses steel wool and a Gutter Zep solution to remove all black streaks and other staining. This service requires us to do the gutter with hand on the ladder, and does not use a pressure washer.
So, give us a call to get your gutters cleaned by insured and bonded technicians at Tru.Shine; a Houston gutter cleaning company.
