Gutter Cleaning

Why do I need to clean my gutters?

Gutters are a necessary part of your roofing system.  They are designed to carry water away from the foundation of a property and prevent water from coming into the property itself.  Gutters clogged with debris will cause the gutters to overflow allowing water to seep into a property. Routine gutter cleaning can prevent roof damage, interior and exterior foundation damage, and ultimately save you thousands of dollars in repair costs.

What happens if I neglect cleaning my gutters?

Foundation Damage

When gutters are not cleaned properly, water will overflow from them and fall along the foundation of a property. This can cause the foundation of a property to crack because the soil under and around it becomes overly saturated. Also, in this area where temperatures get below freezing, the wet foundation of a property can freeze causing it to crack.

Rotted Wood

When gutters are clogged with debris, water will overflow from them onto the property and will also become trapped in the gutter itself. The extra moisture will cause rot in the wood near where the gutters are attached.

Roof Leaks

When gutters do not drain properly, it can create what is called an ice dam. This means that the excess water in gutters freezes during the cold seasons and prevents items, like melting snow, to drain off of the roof properly. This can cause ceiling leaks, wall leaks, and moisture in the attic. Also, the frozen water within a gutter can rip the gutter right off of the property due to its weight.

Pest Infestation

Moist debris left in gutters is attractive to insects and even rodents. Insects and rodents will become attracted to the inside of the property as the weather changes. Also, wood-eating insects are attracted to moist gutter debris and can cause damage to the wood on your property.

Basement Leaks

When gutters are clogged with debris, water will overflow from them on the property foundation allowing water to seep into places like your basement. This can cause health hazards such as mold growth.

Landscape Damage

The excess water that overflows from clogged gutters can kill the plants and grass growing below. When plants and grass roots can no longer absorb the excess water, they will die off. The excess overflow of water can also cause the erosion of soil leaving a ditch in your landscaping.

We reached out to three local companies when we needed pressure washing done. One never responded, one returned my call but never followed through with an estimate, but these folks sent an estimator out to look at my job and I had a written quote later the same day. We had no water on site but that was not an issue at all. Everyone there was professional and courteous. Their work speaks for itself...top notch!read more

We’ve never hired a power wash company before so didn’t really know what to expect. I checked Home Advisor to get an idea of cost and for vendors in our area. I read reviews and chose two companies from which to get quotes. Both were very nice and would’ve done a good job. We chose Mobile Works as their price was better and included more options. The guys who actually did the washing were great! Even helped us move things off the porch. We didn’t realize how dirty the house was until it was clean! 😮 Only issue was our appointment was scheduled for 1pm and the guys were here shortly after 10am we hadn’t cleared the porch and deck off yet. But as I said the guys were understanding, patient and even helped us. Definitely recommend!read more

I own a very large old frame house with two large decks behind it and a fence partially around the deck. I had Mobile Works do a soft wash on the house so as to not disturb the paint. I was amazed at how well they got the dirt, bug litter, mold and mildew off. It shines!! And no more saplings growing in the gutters. They did a regular wash on the deck and fence and it looks brand new. No dirt remaining. I was impressed with all personnel. The young man who gave me the estimates very friendly and explained in detail the estimate. The two young men who power washed my house and deck were very professional, friendly, and were careful to get every little bit of dirt. They even leaf-blew the leaves away from the house. Great job. Highly recommend. Will use them again.read more

Mobile works has done an excellent job on our exterior house cleaning. They suggested the gutter shine, what a difference that made. Had power washing done in the past, this was the first time a gutter shine was mentioned, what a difference it makes. We are completely satisfied with the overall outcome. Staff was great, pleasant and prompt. We will definitely use them for the future and will recommend them to all of our friends. Great job Mobile Worksread more

Our house, soffits, sidewalk and deck were done yesterday and everything looks fantastic; my better half, that is my wife, was very pleased with the results. The house is 15 years old and now looks new again. Eric and Mike were very professional and got to work immediately after they arrived yet at the same time were very friendly and accommodating to our needs. They did not leave until they were sure that we were satisfied. When necessary I will definitely use Mobile Works again and will recommend them at every opportunity. Thank you!read more

What a great group of guys. They completed the job exactly as promised and seemed to have fun while working. And a personal thank you note from the owner through snail mail was the icing on the cake. Who does that anymore? I've already recommended to my neighbors and they are scheduled for this week. Will definitely continue to recommend.read more

What is the gutter cleaning process?

Clear Roof

First all debris is removed from the roof.

Scoop Gutters

Next, the gutters are scooped by hand removing heavy debris and build up.  The gutters can also be cleaned using a scooping device.

Rinse

Once all the debris is removed, the gutters are rinsed out to remove any remaining grit or dirt.

Downspouts

Next, each downspout is tested to ensure that it is clean.  If a downspout is clogged it can be snaked clear or flushed out.

Clean Up

Lastly, all debris is removed and hauled away from the property.
