Why We Hand Clean Gutters

Gutters and downspouts should never be cleaned any other way!

Clean Pro Gutter Cleaning only uses a by-hand cleaning process to care for your gutters and downspouts. The reasons are simple:

1. Leaf Blowers Cause Damage

Your roof is designed to, under normal circumstances, handle 40-60 mph winds without serious effects. But what about using a leaf blower? They typically produce sustained air-flow (wind) in the 180-200 mph range. What effect do you think that will have on your roof shingles and gutter systems? It will cause shingles and tiles to loosen or even lift them off and will loosen the attachments of your gutters and downspouts to your fascia boards and roof.

Both of these are costly, but easily avoidable, repairs. Never let anyone clean your gutters with a leaf blower! Clean Pro will never use a leaf blower on your roof. It’s never faster, it’s never easier and it’s never right to do. Those other guys will, but we won’t. And we stand behind our reasons why.

2. Power Washers Cause Damage

Normal home water pressure service is around 50 psi and at the end of a garden hose it is even lower. Rain falling on your roof is even less. So why would anyone try to ‘clean’ a gutter with a pressure washer that forces water (usually hot water) at up 2,000 psi to blow all those leafs, weeds and gunk everywhere AND potentially damage your gutters and roof?

The high pressure water can loosen and weaken the attachments of the gutter to the fascia board and your roof causing it to wear out prematurely or, in really bad examples, fall off completely! Another very very costly mistake you can easily avoid.

3. It’s Environmentally Friendly

Taking the time to clean your gutters and downspouts the proper way, by hand, the way they were designed is the most environmentally friendly way to do the job. Clean Pro believes that when we do a gutter cleaning service at a home it should look like we were never there (except for the cleaned gutters of course)! The same goes for our environmental foot-print; we work hard to minimize any waste that goes to landfills and any excess carbon, noise or water use that is minimally required to do the job.

We live and work in the communities we serve and we care for the environment we all live in. Leaving a mess behind or wasting water or fuel is not how we operate our business.

Ask yourself one simple question the next time you are considering a gutter cleaning service that uses leaf blowers, power washers or doesn’t care about the environment: do you really want them to do the same thing at your home?

If not, we would be proud to have you consider Clean Pro Gutter Cleaning for your next gutter and downspout service. Call today or click below for a fast same-day quote.
