As simple as it sounds, gutter cleaning can be a very dangerous home maintenance task. Trying to balance while on top of a ladder, or walking around on your roof while bending down to clean out your gutters introduces the risk of falling. Rather than taking these unnecessary risks, consider hiring a professional gutter cleaning company with trained employees and the proper equipment to safely perform the task. At Natures Elements, we ensure our technicians have everything they need to safely, effectively and thoroughly get your gutters sparkling clean. In Palatine, our stellar reputation is the result of many years of excellent service to our customers.
Gutters are the perfect area for dust and dirt that comes off of your shingles to collect. Sometimes when your gutters dry out, very small dirt particles, or “silt” remains in the bottom. This can harden and attract more the next time it rains. Eventually this weighs your gutters down. It’s also a great place for seeds to take root. Likewise, if you live in an area of Palatine where there are many trees that have leaves or pine needles that drop in the fall, you should consider a seasonal gutter cleaning every year.
With that all being said, you should consider hiring a professional gutter cleaning company in Palatine over trying a DIY approach because of the potential risks involved during the various steps of the gutter cleaning process:
- Falling from the Roof or Ladder: Let’s assume you understand gutter cleaning and you’re ready to try to do it yourself. Without training and experience up on a ladder, you may find it difficult to maintain your balance. This could result in serious injury or even death. Going up onto the roof may allow you to have better balance, but you will be even higher. Safety tips in a video won’t save you from falling. Safety gear is not cheap or easy to use, either. Eliminate the risk and give Natures Elements in Palatine a call today.
- Causing Damage to Your Home or Other Property: If you have gutters over a garage or patio, you may have things there that could become damaged if something falls out of the gutter or if you cause damage to the gutter itself causing it to fall. If your gutters are retaining water because they are sagging, or if they are full of dirt and debris, they will be even heavier.
- Causing Damage to Your Roof: Certain parts of your roof should not be walked on. It’s also important to know that if you spray water into your gutters, it could easily be sprayed under your shingles, leading to a variety of problems later on like mold and mildew. If your gutters are sagging because they are full of debris, simply spraying more water in there will probably not solve the problem either.
