Cleaning Gutter Covers York PA

"I was told that I would never have to clean my gutters again...."
Let me just say, "Sorry."  We did not sell you that cover and now you can't get the installer out to maintain it.  Maintain it?  Yes, maintain it.  You may have purchased on a "Never Clean Your Gutters Again" slogan, but as you can see, you have found that was incorrect.

Here you can see evidence in the mulch washout that the gutters are overflowing when it rains.  Check out our site for more information about signs the gutters are clogged.

Let's climb up and see what is hiding under the gutter covers on this York, PA home.

What do we do now after the typical scoop, brush, and flush?  Ask the customer if they want us to place the covers back on the home.  The gutter covers may extend time between cleanings.  However, they will also raise your price per cleaning as they add an extra piece to deal with and get around when cleaning the gutter system.  Just a few points to consider.

Springettsbury Township Gutter Cleaning

The culprit for clogging gutters at this Springettsbury home are the tiny compacting leaves of a locust tree.
The leaves of a locust tree compact down to the point where you will not see them from below and you may not see them from an upper floor window.  

When we come to clean your gutters, we get on the roof and walk the edge.  You can clearly see in the closeup shot what has been stopping these gutters from flowing properly.  We scoop.....

We brush.....

Now that the gutters have been completely brushed, we can flush the downspouts. This is one of the most important parts, possibly the most important part of the process  If you clean the main portion of gutter and leave the downspout clogged, you will leave the home's gutters overflowing with the next rain.
It can sometimes be a slimey, dirty job, but it's a very important task.
