Reliable Eavestrough Cleaning and Maintenance Services

During the fall, dead leaves and branches can clutter your eavestrough. In spring, if the debris isn’t adequately removed, birds may select your gutters for nesting, causing problems.

Eavestroughs can quickly become clogged, and if left unaddressed, they overflow, generating water down your walls. They can even flow inside your building or home, including into the basement. Eavestrough maintenance is essential in preventing damage.

Even if there aren’t many or any trees surrounding your property, particles from roof shingles can gather in your gutters, generating a muddy substance blocking water flow to your downspouts. After a time, gutters can split from the roofline, resulting in expensive repairs.

If they are clogged during winter, water freezes within the area. The weight of the ice can break roof passages. They can also create broken seams between downspouts and eavestroughs, causing further challenges.

Keeping your eavestroughs clean on an annual or bi-annual basis can prevent you from experiencing costly repairs later.


Why are Eavestroughs Important?

Eavestroughs are a significant item in a building’s drainage system. They control water flow and ensure water isn’t accumulating or seeping into areas that can cause damage. Eavestroughs use and collect water for flowers or grass, which can lead to eco-friendly, resourceful solutions.

Environmentally Friendly

A rain barrel or large container to gather water after running off your eaves can be repurposed to water your grass or clean the driveway. Please refrain from using it as drinking water or bathing. This practice reduces water consumption by hundreds of gallons annually.

Keep the Building/Home Clean

Water running off from a roof and not being caught in your eavestroughs can create a muddy mess on the side of your house. It becomes irritating when you spend money finding exterior house cleaning services over time.

Generate a Finish

Eavestroughs complete the look of a home, making it appear done. With different colour combinations, it is easy to create a unique appearance. Whether renovating, updating, or building a new home, eaves are essential to a sound drainage system.

Benefits of Eavestrough Cleaning

A clean gutter controls water flow from the roof. When debris like branches, pine needles, or leaves accumulate in your gutters, it interferes with drainage, causing damage. Water can flow down exterior walls, damage interior walls, and leak into the basement. Repairs are costly.

Furthermore, trapped moisture provides a breeding ground for mildew, mould, and bacteria. This accumulation affects your family’s health and compromises a roof’s integrity. If left unchecked, you may need to replace or repair the roof.

It also provides a place for rodents and pests to build their homes. You may require extermination if this occurs.

If you want to increase the longevity of your roof, your gutters will require regular cleanings and maintenance. When moisture, garbage, and ice are trapped, additional strain is placed on the roof, creating weak parts. This lack of attention causes leaks, water damage, and rotting.

Debris accumulation places added weight on the gutters, causing damage. If not correctly fixed, broken eavestroughs pose more significant issues. As an act of prevention, it is best to book a professional eavestrough cleaning.


When is the best time to clean your eavestroughs?

Your gutters should be cleaned at least twice a year. However, several factors affect how frequently they require maintenance. If your yard has trees with branches hanging close to the roof, leaves are more likely to clog the gutters.

The climate also dictates how often it needs to be cleaned. Those in Ontario are recommended to wash their eavestroughs cleaned during spring and fall. Work should be accomplished using professionals so they are free from garbage and rainwater can freely flow.

The best time to clean them is when leaves begin to fall and can clog up your system. While waiting until leaves are all down is tempting, experts advise doing this sooner. If you remain too long, water damage, mildew, or mould can arise, affecting your health.

Why You Should Hire a Professional Eavestrough Cleaner

While you might consider cleaning your gutters yourself, hiring a professional eavestrough cleaner offers significant benefits. Professionals have specialised tools to safely and effectively remove debris without compromising the integrity of your gutter and roof.

Additionally, climbing onto a roof poses serious safety hazards. Falls from ladders can result in severe, permanent injuries. Professional cleaners mitigate these risks with the proper equipment and expertise.

Professional gutter cleaning involves more than just removing accumulated dirt. Downspouts are checked for clear flow, and loose gutter spikes are repaired. Regular maintenance is a proactive approach to preventing damage to both your gutters and your home.

Cleaning gutters requires stamina and skill. Even for professionals, it can be an all-day task. Instead of spending your valuable time on this labour-intensive chore, partner with a professional eavestrough cleaner like JW Landscaping.
