Why is Gutter Cleaning So Important?

By: | Tags: | Comments: 0

We’ll say it right up front – we know that nobody really wants to think of gutter cleaning! It may well be a popular service for us here at J&M Window Cleaning – and one we’ve provided for almost two decades – but we’re also able to stay realistic! 

Whether you want to think about it or not, though, gutter cleaning is simply something that needs doing. It doesn’t matter whether your home is located in Bloomfield Hills or Northville, Clarkston or Commerce Township – gutters are still necessary for obvious reasons, and those gutters need to be clean in order to function properly. 

Rather than just telling you how important gutter cleaning is, though, we’d like to explain why it’s so important. Why do so many people spend money regularly hiring a professional gutter cleaning company? 

Well, to put it simply, the main reason is because blocked gutters can end up causing significant damage to a home. When rainwater can’t drain properly, it can start rotting the fascia boards beneath. If the problem still isn’t contained, the water can leak through your walls, windows and ceilings… and that’s when you start having real problems! This can cause mold and damp to spread inside your home, which – in turn – can cause respiratory issues and other health problems for you and your family. 

When your health may ultimately be on the line, we’d say that regular gutter cleaning becomes a no-brainer. When you look at the costs, this is doubly true. Professional gutter cleaning might seem like an unnecessary expense, but compared to the costs of fixing walls and ceilings, or removing mold and damp, it can end up paling in comparison. 

Of course, if we all lived in a tropical climate, gutter cleaning might not be such an issue. As it is, though, we live in Michigan… which sees its fair share of rain! When this is combined with the falling leaves and sometimes strong winds of autumn, the problem of blocked gutters tends to grow even worse. Thus, whether you’re based in Clarkston, Commerce Township, Bloomfield Hills, Northville, or the wider Oakland County area, we’d mark this down as a time in which gutter cleaning is especially important. 

So, now you know that you definitely, indisputably must take care of those gutters. The only question is… how do you go about actually cleaning them? Some people like to take the DIY approach here, but we wouldn’t recommend that. It’s much safer to simply hire a professional gutter cleaning company, who will happily take on the risk of scaling those ladders, and will almost certainly do a better job anyway!

If you agree that this is the best route to take, then you only have one more decision to make – who exactly should you hire for this vital job? Luckily for you, we’ve got the answer ready to go – J&M Window Cleaning, of course! We have all the experience, expertise and tools necessary to get those gutters cleaned, and we’ll do it nice and quickly too. Better yet, we also carry liability insurance to the tune of $1 million per incident, meaning that – if things take a turn for the worse – we’re the ones who’ll foot the bill, not you.
