Gutter Cleaning in Ames & Des Moines, IA
Professional Gutter Cleaning for Commercial Buildings & Multi-Family Housing
Worried about finding a gutter cleaning contractor you can trust? We are here to help. A clean and well functioning gutter system is extremely important to the preservation of a building’s foundation. For some properties this can be accomplished with periodic inspections and gutter cleanings. Others may find it more cost effective to invest in a gutter protection system. We recommend gutter cleaning in both the spring and fall for multi-family housing. If there is heavy tree cover a higher frequency may be necessary.
Gutter Guards...are they worth it?
With over 10 years of experience cleaning gutters on almost 1000 homes…we have seen it all. The bottom line is that in some situations, gutter screens can cause more harm than good. We have seen about every product on the market in real life situations and have settled on one style of gutter protection that we recommend…stainless steel micro-mesh. This product is extremely durable, prevents even the tiniest debris from entering your gutters (not even pine needles or shingle grit pass through!), and it can handle downpours of water. We’d be happy to prepare an ROI analysis on installing this form of gutter protection on your property.
Why clean gutters matter.
Quick tip: To calculate the amount of rainfall that lands on your roof us the following formula: Square footage x .62 x inches of rainfall = Gallon of Water. If your gutter system isn’t effectively carrying water away from your building, this water is being deposited next to your foundation and will either work its way into the basement or will erode your footings. So if you have a 2500ft2 roof, and we get a 1 inch rainfall, your gutter system needs to move over 1500 gallons of water!
