Gutter cleaning is an important part of outdoor maintenance, however, most homeowners focused solely on the inside of the gutters. But cleaning the outside of your gutters makes your home look brighter and well kept.
I have to admit, when I first purchased our home, I never even looked at the outside of my gutters. As a new homeowner, I knew I needed to periodically clean out any leaves or other debris that may clog my gutters, but when it came to the outside of the gutters, they were completely ignored. It wasn’t until I really paid attention that I realized how dirty they were!
When you think about it, it’s not surprising that the outside of gutters get so dirty. Tar and debris from your roof shingles will streak down and stain the outside, dirty water may roll over the surface and they are constantly vulnerable to Mother Nature’s elements.
Cleaning your gutters is one home maintenance task that we recommend a professional pressure washing company tackle for you as there are some safety concerns. Gutters are high off the ground and you’ll need the right equipment to reach the area (you don’t want to clean on an unsteady ladder). Additionally, gutters can easily be cut or dented if a pressure washer isn’t used properly.
At Renew Crew, our trained gutter cleaning and protecting technicians will make your gutters look great, and keep them looking that way! First we apply a deep penetrating cleaning foam to the entire gutter. We use environmentally friendly foam because it sticks to the surface longer than a liquid, allowing it to loosen dirt and stains.
After the foam does its job, we rinse it all away with a pressure washer. After this step, you’ll be able to notice the difference clean gutters can make!
Lastly, we apply a clear protectant to the gutters. The protectant will keep dirt and stains from setting into the surface again.
If you have questions regarding professional gutter cleaning, or any other outdoor surface, please call your local Renew Crew experts.
