Do You Really Need to Spend Money on Gutter Cleaning?

By: | Tags: | Comments: 0

When you’re a homeowner – whether that home is based in Clarkston, Commerce Township, Bloomfield Hills, Northville, or elsewhere in Michigan – gutter cleaning really is just… one of those jobs! You know, deep down, that you have to do it. When left unchecked, after all, gutters can cause all types of problems. Most of these revolve around drainage, which – if compromised – can lead to some serious structural damage for your home. In turn, this will be both costly and time-consuming to fix. 

So, those gutters do need to be cleaned… but who actually, seriously wants to do that?! Not many people! Going to the trouble of getting the ladder out, then clambering up to your gutters and mucking out all the detritus that’s accumulated there is always an unappealing prospect. With the autumn closing in fast, it becomes even more so – temperatures are dropping, after all, and the job is only getting tougher as more and more pesky leaves are falling into those gutters. 

On top of all that, of course, is the simple fact that clambering up a ladder to any serious height is a risky business at the best of times. Over 500,000 Americans suffer ladder-related accidents every single year, and nobody wants to become part of that alarming statistic! 

Gutter cleaning does still need to be done, of course, for those aforementioned structural reasons. And, if you agree that the DIY-approach is a pretty unappealing prospect, that leaves only one alternative – hiring a professional gutter cleaning company that works in Bloomfield Hills, Commerce Township, Clarkston, Northville, and the wider Oakland County area. 

At first glance, this might seem like an unnecessary expense. When you’re already spending money on residential window cleaning regularly (as most homeowners are), we understand why you’re not exactly thrilled at the idea of dropping some extra dollars on residential gutter cleaning too. Take some time to actually consider the pros and cons, though, and we believe you’ll see that it’s actually a pretty sound idea after all. 

For starters, the inherent risks of gutter cleaning are taken on by someone else, rather than yourself. As an experienced professional, that other person is less likely to suffer accidents anyway, and – even if a mistake is made – any responsible gutter cleaning company (like J&M Window Cleaning, for example!) will carry liability insurance to cover the costs. 

Not only that, but individuals at such companies will have been trained in how to carry out gutter cleaning in the most efficient manner, ensuring that your gutters get cleaned more effectively and in a shorter amount of time. By extension, the prospects of any long-term structural damage are greatly reduced. If you do take the DIY route, there’s no guarantee that you’re actually clearing those gutters out properly! With professional gutter cleaners on the case, that needn’t be a worry any longer. 

Add it all together, and hiring a professional gutter cleaning company – rather than trying to do it all yourself – is much safer for both your home and your person. We’d certainly argue that’s worth spending a little money on every few months, and – at J&M Window Cleaning – we’d be delighted to provide such a service for you. All our staff possess the tools and expertise to get your gutters, and even your downspouts, fully cleared of all dirt and debris. Better yet, we even offer a hefty 10% discount on gutter cleaning if you pair it with any of the other excellent services we offer.
