Gutters: Cleaning the Inside

It can be nice to relax with a warm drink cozied up while listening to the rain outside. However, it is a completely different experience looking outside, only to see rainwater flowing over the edge of the gutter line. Cleaning the gutter system is an unavoidable, time-consuming, and physically challenging task. Improperly functioning gutters can lead to a rusted system where replacement becomes inevitable.

The primary function of the gutter system is to move moisture and rain away from the home, preventing leaks and flooding to the home’s interior. When debris is in the gutter, water gets trapped and freezes in winter, forming ice dams. When the ice dams begin to melt, water gets under the shingles and works its way into the ceilings and walls of the home, causing water damage and mold. Research indicates that 87% of all exterior home mold starts in the gutters. Plus, ice dams are heavy and cause harm not only to the home’s interior and roof, but also to the gutter system itself. This damage can be greatly reduced by having the gutters cleaned out regularly.

A Better Way to Clean Gutters

As with other maintenance tasks, The Window Guy knows that when it comes to cleaning your gutters, timing is everything. Ideally, a home’s gutter system should be cleaned twice per year, at the beginning of spring and the beginning of fall. Cleaning the gutters in early spring will ensure proper flow, minimizing the risk of rust and weight damage during the rainy season. Having the gutters cleaned at the beginning of fall ensures the leaves will still be dry, minimizing the chance of mold buildup. When precipitation occurs, the water will flow freely through the gutter and into the downspout, ensuring little or no damage to the gutter. Do not wait to have the gutters cleaned only one time per year. Minimal cleaning assures small animals such as squirrels and birds have had time to nest among the debris and leave their droppings in the gutter. The presence of organic matter and water leads to mold formation, contributing to the further clogging of the gutter system. Our technicians hand-bag all the gutter debris and check all downspouts to ensure proper water flow.

What if you have Gutter Guards, Gutter Screens, or Foam Inserts in or on your gutter system?

Caution: If our company did not install the gutter or gutter guard system currently in place, you, the homeowner, need to be aware that The Window Guy is not responsible for any existing or future damage caused by cleaning out your gutters. Gutter protection systems come in all shapes and sizes and are generally made of sheet metal, plastic, or foam inserts. These guards being exposed to the elements increases the potential of damage even further. For example, plastic and thin sheet metal guards have a tendency to warp and become brittle after prolonged exposure to the sun, wind, and rain. Foam inserts will only last for so long before they begin to disintegrate. The Window Guy won’t be responsible for the aforementioned or for broken clips, prongs, holes, bent pieces of screen or guards, etc. All are common issues with gutter guards that face the elements. Please be advised that if we were to remove the gutter system to access and clean, the gutter protection system warranty might be voided.

What is the solution?

Over time, we have tried various methods to clean gutters with gutter guard systems in place. We have only come up with one way to clean them without voiding the warranty or affecting the integrity of the gutter system. If you have some type of gutter guard system in place, the five steps below will outline how we clean your gutters.

  1. Clean the top of the ‘guards’ off – removing any debris that has accumulated.
  2. Clean any debris off the roof valleys – only going up as far as the technician can reach using a pole.
  3. Use a pressure washing wand or hose sprayer (spraying inside the gutter) to push the debris toward and down the downspout until all debris is removed from the gutter and downspout. If the downspouts have an underground pipeline to channel the water, we will remove the piping from the downspout end to prevent clogging from any gutter debris (we are not responsible for cleaning the underground gutter piping).
  4. Rinse any overspray or debris off the outside of the gutter, fascia, windows, siding, etc.
  5. Bag and remove any debris from the landscape, the bottom of the downspouts, roof valleys, and the gutter system.
