Eavestrough Cleaning Brandon Mb
Eavestrough Cleaning Brandon Manitoba | Steve’s Yard Care
We remove all leaves and loose dirt, clear all downpipes from obstructions and ensure proper water flow. We will also check for damage to eavestrough and guttering and report to the customer (we do not repair – simply an honest evaluation)
We use ladder stand offs so that eavestroughs are not damaged
How to clean?
Scoop out all loose debris. Starting at a drain outlet at the low end of the gutter, use a garden trowel or a gutter scoop and scoop out all debris, working away from the drain outlet. It’s easiest to do this when the debris is slightly damp and not soggy or dried and encrusted. To minimize cleanup later, you can scoop the debris into a plastic bucket.
Clear obstructions in downpipes. If water doesn’t drain freely then try flushing the debris down with a hose. If that doesn’t work, use a extension pole and attachment to free and pull out the debris from the bottom or, in some situations, to push it through from the top.
Also check downpipes for rust, peeling paint or leaks, and make sure they are fixed tightly against the fascia boards. Check the fascia boards themselves for dry rot or other damage, and, if need be, replace them with treated lumber.
How often should they be cleaned?
The eavestroughs and gutters should be cleaned twice a year, at the beginning of fall and at the beginning of spring, however at least once a year should be fine. If you clean the gutters at the beginning of fall, the leaves should still be dry and easier to remove.
