Here at Duval Pressure Washing, we understand how important clean gutters are in safeguarding your home. With years of experience and a commitment to excellence, we leave all of out customers with their gutters debris-free and functioning properly. Why is gutter cleaning so important and how can our services can benefit you?

Preventing Water Damage:

If your gutters are clogged, water can't effectively flow away from your home during rainfall. Instead, water may overflow the gutters, seeping into your roof, walls, and/or under your foundation. Over time, this can lead to water damage, mold growth, and structural issues. Having your gutters cleaned t free up any debris will mitigate the risk of water damage and the costly repairs that brings.

Preserving Your Home's Foundation:

Gutters main function is to direct the water from rainfall away from your homes foundation. When gutters are clogged, water will flow right over the gutter and can pool around or go under the foundation. This can lead to cracking or shifting. A cracking foundation can cause structural integrity issues, leading to expensive foundation repairs. What's the point of even having gutters if they're clogged?! Make sure to take care of your home's foundation and keep your gutters free of debris.

Preventing Pest Infestations:

Unfortunately, we have found all sorts of critters living in peoples gutters. Clogged gutters create an ideal environment for pests such as mosquitoes, rodents, roaches, and other insects to thrive. This can obviously pose a health risks to you and your family and lead to further infestations if not cleared out.

Extending the Lifespan of Your Gutters:

Debris that accumulates can weigh down gutters, causing them to bend down or pull away from the roof. Trapped water can also lead to continued corrosion and rust damaging the lifespan of your gutters. Regular gutter cleaning removes debris and prevents damage, extending the lifespan of your gutters and saving you money in the long run.

Enhancing Curb Appeal:

Clean gutters definitely contribute to your homes curb appeal. Having things growing out of your gutters is unsightly and can also lead to staining of the siding in areas where they are overflowing. Having your gutters sagging down from being too full also looks ugly and detracts from the overall appearance of your home if they get to that point of bending.
