How to Clean Your Gutters 

There is more than one way to clean your gutters. We’ve had the opportunity to learn about each and every method for gutter cleaning.

Cleaning by Hand

Hand cleaning gutters is the most effective method for ensuring that your gutters are free of debris and functioning properly. Using a ladder, gloves, and a bucket, you can remove leaves, debris, and other materials that can clog your gutters and cause damage to your home. Spray nozzles and other methods may create a mess and splatter on your siding and windows, making hand cleaning the most efficient and thorough option. This guide will explain the best way to clean your gutters, downspouts, and outlets, leaving you with a gutter system that will perform and protect your home as it is designed to.

Overflowing or Leaky Gutters

Leaks and overflow after a storm are key signals that your gutters might need cleaning or could be a sign that you need repair.  

Signs your gutters need attention 

  • Gutter overflow 
  • Visible debris in gutters 
  • No water flow from the downspout 

Overflow caused by a clog may look like overflow caused by damaged or improperly installed gutters. Sometimes it can take a trained expert to identify the root of the problem.  

Cleaning or Repair – Which do I Need? 

Cleaning

Overflowing at or near the downspout signals that you need gutter cleaning services and there is a blockage inhibiting the water from flowing down the downspout. 

Repair 

Overflow that is occurring in the middle of a gutter, and/or at the opposite end of a downspout indicates the need for a repair or reinstall. This could be: 

  1. A sign of a pitch issue
  2. Your gutters are too small
  3. There are not enough leaders or downspouts
  4. Your gutters are sagging/pulling from your home due to age, or install issues 

Other indications that you have overflow problems:

  • Stained or cracked walls, siding, or foundation 
  • Pooling near your foundation 
  • Visible overflow from the front of the gutter or between the fascia and gutter in the rain 

Additionally, If you have a downspout that leads to an underground drain and the area around that drain is wet, then it is likely clogged. 

Let the Pros Decide 

Overflow issues can lead to many serious and expensive issues for your home including water damage, flooding, and foundation damage.  

Our professionally trained staff can determine whether your gutter system needs gutter cleaning services, or if your overflow stems from other issues that may involve a repair or a replacement. The correct solution for your gutters is not a rinse and repeat solution and each home often requires a unique fix that should be fully and properly assessed by a professional.
