5 Ways That Clean Gutters Protect Your Property

Have you thought about your gutters lately?

We know, we know – they aren’t exactly the first thing you think about when you wake up in the morning. But they are pivotal to the quality of your home.

As your San Antonio gutter cleaning experts, we see the positive impact of well-maintained gutters every day. And there’s a common thread across each perk: protection. With regular gutter cleaning, your home will get benefits that include:

  • Protection from water damage
    When your gutters are full with grime, they can’t channel rainwater away from your home. This leaves your roofline, your siding, your windows, and even your foundation vulnerable to water damage.
  • Protection from landscaping deterioration
    Overflowing gutters do a number on your property’s landscaping and gardens. We prevent erosion from ruining your well-tended beds.
  • Protection from flooding
    If your gutters are clogged, rainwater doesn’t have anywhere to go but directly downward. When it settles around your foundation, it can seep into your basement or lower level.
  • Protection from mold, mildew, and other bacteria
    When moisture and shade team up, bacteria and fungus thrive. We remove mold and other spores to prevent them from damaging your exterior and sneaking into your home’s interior.
  • Protection from pests
    We’ve seen bird nests and mosquito breeding sites. We’ve seen mice and other insects. When your gutters get clogged up, they become an optimal site for pests to make themselves at home.
