It can be nice to relax with a warm drink cozied up while listening to the rain outside. However, it is a completely different experience looking outside only to see rainwater flowing over the edge of the gutter line. Cleaning the gutter system is an unavoidable, time consuming and physically challenging task. Improperly functioning gutters can lead to a rusted system where replacement becomes inevitable. The primary function of the gutter system is to move moisture and rain away from the home, preventing leaks and flooding to the home's interior. When debris is in the gutter, water gets trapped and freezes in winter, forming ice dams. When the ice dams begin to melt, water gets under the shingles and works its way into the homes ceilings and walls causing water damage and mold. Research indicates that 87% of all exterior home mold starts in the gutters. Plus, ice dams are heavy and cause harm not only to the homes interior and roof, but also to the gutter system itself. This damage can be greatly reduced by having the gutters cleaned out regularly.

A Better way
As with other maintenance tasks, Looking Glass Cleaning knows that when it comes to cleaning your gutters, timing is everything. Ideally a home's gutter system should be cleaned twice per year, at the beginning of spring and at the beginning of fall. Cleaning the gutters in early spring will ensure proper flow, minimizing the risk of rust and weight damage during the rainy season. Having the gutters cleaned at the beginning of fall ensures the leaves will still be dry, minimizing the chance for mold build up. When precipitation occurs the water will flow freely through the gutter and into the downspout ensuring little or no damage to the gutter. Do not wait to have the gutters cleaned only one time per year. Minimal cleaning assures small animals such as squirrels and birds have had time to nest among the debris and leave their droppings in the gutter. The presence of organic matter and water leads to the formation of mold, contributing to the further clogging of the gutter system. Our technicians hand bag all the gutter debris and check all downspouts to ensure proper water flow.
