Give your gutters a spring clean

Say goodbye to costly repairs and keep your commercial gutters clean this spring

Don't let spring fool you - make sure your gutters are in good shape. Follow our guide on gutter cleaning in spring to save yourself from expensive repairs or replacements in the future.

While the risk of snowfall may be lower, spring showers and frosty nights can still pose a threat. In fact, spring is the perfect time to inspect and clean your gutters. Just like plants, your gutters need some repair and revival too. By taking care of them now, you can prevent expensive repairs or replacements later on.

Weather plays a crucial role in the condition of your gutters. After a brutal winter filled with storms, it's important to have a professional inspection. Damage could be lurking in areas that are not easily visible or accessible from the ground. As weather conditions improve, it's vital to address any concerns about your gutters before they worsen.

Spring may bring warmer temperatures, but it also brings humidity. This creates an ideal environment for mold to grow in your gutters if they are not properly maintained. Mold can damage both your gutters and the structure of your commercial property. Spring showers only exacerbate this issue, leading to leaks and weakened structures.

Wildlife is another factor to consider during spring. Birds take advantage of this season to find food sources and breed. Commercial properties provide sheltered nesting spots for birds, resulting in an increase in droppings. If your gutters become clogged with droppings, it can lead to leaks and weakened fixtures. If you notice an influx of birds on your property, it's best to contact a professional gutter cleaning service for assistance.

Take advantage of the extended hours of sunlight during spring to conduct inspections yourself. Focus on easily accessible areas such as gutter anchors, downspouts, and overall gutter and property conditions. Pay attention to sagging or leaking gutters as these issues require professional attention. Always inspect from ground level and seek help from professionals if needed.
