Power Washing and Gutter Cleaning in Newnan, Ga
Well, yes, it’s that time of the year. The leaves have fallen and it’s time to get them off the ground, off your roof, and out of the gutters. A clean roof helps keep your gutters clean and clean gutters help preserve the value of your home or building.
If you are a home owner, you should be aware of the value of your home and how a good, clean gutter system helps to preserve that value. As leaves clutter up your gutters, water runs less efficiently and even spills over the sides. This causes pools of water to gather in unintended places along the foundation of your property. This can allow water to find it’s way into places it wasn’t mean to get…like your basement. Water spilling down the sides of the gutters also means it’s running down the side of your home – again, this is a less than optimum condition and will, over time, cause your siding undo damage and make it look old before it’s time. Keeping the gutters clean and free of obstructions like dirt, leaves and debris is a critical piece of home maintenance. You can do this yourself or you can hire a professional. If you choose to do it yourself, know that there are some areas of concern you must be prepared for. Heights, of course depending on the building itself, are a primary reason many people turn this job over to professionals. Also, it’s very common for bees, wasps, spiders and other irritating creatures to make their homes in dirty gutters so as you’re cleaning the gutters, be on the lookout for these guys. Obviously, the two (heights and insects) don’t mix well – running into a wasp nest when you’re three stories up is a very dangerous situation.
Aside from gutter cleaning, you should consider a good pressure washing for your building’s siding, driveway, sidewalks, decks, etc. The same person who cleans your gutters will probably provide this service too and it’s money well paid for. Seldom does a home or business owner not show a lot of surprise after their first pressure washing – the before and after pictures are amazing and will keep you coming back year after year. Power cleaning sidewalks is also important as it keeps them free of dirt, grime and even mold which presents a slippery surface. Many people every year are injured by slipping and falling on unclean sidewalks and if you own a business it may be your responsibility to ensure this is not a problem.
So that’s it – clean your gutters and pressure wash your siding, decks, sidewalks, parking lots, etc. Or have a professional do it with the right tools and experience to make sure it’s done completely and without damage to anything.
