At Grime Fighters SoftWash, we want to help you keep your home in the best possible condition, and we offer a comprehensive range of cleaning services to help you do just that. Keeping your exterior clean is an important part of protecting it and the rest of your home from mold, rot, and everyday wear and tear. In particular, it is essential to keep your gutters clean, as they are designed to channel rainwater away from your siding and foundations to ensure they are not damaged by the moisture. Our team has extensive experience in the exterior cleaning industry, and in this article, we will go over a few ways our gutter cleaning services protect your home.
- Prevents Mold. One way our gutter cleaning services protect your home is that they help prevent mold growth. All mold species thrive in damp conditions, and you are much more likely to develop a mold problem if your siding gets damp. Our gutter cleaning services prevent your gutters from becoming clogged, which in turn ensures water is directed away from your siding, which then prevents mold growth and keeps your siding in better long-term condition.
- Prevents Window Damage. If your gutters get clogged, water will spill over the sides, which will then splash onto your siding and your windows. Over time, exposure to moisture will damage your window frames and cause them to warp and rot. Fortunately, our gutter cleaning services will prevent this whole chain of events from occurring.
- Prevents Foundation Damage. A third way our gutter cleaning services will protect your home is by preventing foundation erosion and damage. When water spills over the sides of your gutters, it soaks into the soil around your home’s foundation, which causes the soil to shift and erode and can also cause the foundation itself to rot. Our gutter cleaning services will remove all potential clogs from your gutters to ensure water continues to flow down the downspouts and away from your foundation like it’s supposed to.
