Maintaining your home’s gutters should be at the top of your home maintenance checklist. While it may seem like a mundane task, neglecting your gutters can lead to significant problems down the line. The primary purpose of gutters is to redirect rainwater away from your home’s foundation and prevent moisture build-up. In order for this system to work effectively, it is crucial to keep your gutters free of debris.

When gutters are installed, they are sloped to direct rainwater towards downspouts. These downspouts are equipped with collector baskets, which ensure that only water flows into the system while keeping leaves and debris out. Over time, however, these downspouts can become clogged, preventing the water from being properly drained. This can lead to pooling water around your foundation and potential damage to your entire house.

At Rainforest Home Maintenance, we understand the importance of keeping your gutters debris-free. We employ various gutter cleaning techniques to cater to the unique needs of each home. Our experienced technicians assess each house and determine the best approach for cleaning the gutters. This can include vacuuming, hand cleaning, or blowing out the debris.

To ensure thorough cleaning, we place weighted perforated caps on top of the collector baskets during the cleaning process. This prevents any additional debris from entering the gutter system. Our technicians use ladders or access the roof to perform the cleaning, but we also have a ground-based vacuum system with a digital camera attachment. This allows our technicians to have a bird’s eye view of the gutter from the ground, ensuring a spotless finish.

Ask us about our Custom-Made Rainforest brand Gutter Guards… they are designed, manufactured & installed for you to the exact specifications for your particular home. They are more robust and better designed than what the vast majority of mass-produced ‘alternatives’ our competitors use.

Safety is paramount at Rainforest, which is why we tailor our cleaning methods to each specific house. We prioritize the well-being of our technicians and the integrity of your gutters. After conducting a thorough gutter clean, we also inspect the downspouts for any blockages. If blockages are detected, our technicians will disconnect the downspout, clear it out, and reinstall it.

In addition to our comprehensive cleaning services, we pride ourselves on leaving your property cleaner than when we arrived. Any debris from the gutter cleaning is blown, raked, and swept into our organic waste bins, which are promptly removed from the property. With Rainforest, you can trust that your gutters will be meticulously cleaned, ensuring optimal functionality and the longevity of your home.
