Brick exterior houseGutter cleaning service is an important part of keeping up your property. Clogged gutters can cause water to run down the sides of your house causing damage to the exterior, creating cracks in the foundation and can even cause flooding of the basement. Too much debris and water in the gutter will serve as breeding ground for bacteria, mold or pests. So, although gutter cleaning is important for curb appeal, it also ensures the safety of your family and security of your house. You might have some questions about what gutter cleaning includes, such as if it involves cleaning of downspouts or why it is necessary to clean your gutters every year and ideally every spring and fall.  

Shine Above is a gutter cleaning company servicing Edmonton, Sherwood Park, St Albert and the surrounding Edmonton area. Here, at Shine Above the gutter cleaning includes cleaning the inside of the gutters and downspouts. The professionals will remove the leaves, twigs, dirt, seed pods or pine cones and power wash inside of gutters. If there are any plants or trees growing in the gutters, we will remove it too. We will always make sure to clean any plugged parts of eavestrough and downspout. 

How we do it 

Professionals will get on the ladders, use hand tools and pressure washing methods to get the best results. Pressure washing ensures there is no debris left in the gutters and all the blockages are cleaned out. They will clean the entire length of the eavestroughs and take pictures of before and after. If you ever had a company that  cleaned your gutters without using the ladders and afterwards you found out that there are still a bunch of leaves and plugged parts in the gutter –  you know how disappointing it is to have the low quality service. And that’s why Shine Above technicians take pictures before and after to give you a good idea of work that was done and show the results. Make sure you get your gutter cleaning before freezing temperatures – frozen water will warp and potentially damage the gutters. Then you will end up with a much higher cost of the repair compared to the cost of regular cleaning. 

Safety

No one really likes to deal with the moldy and smelly debris clogging the gutters, never mind doing it at a height. Having to work at a height makes gutter cleaning a dangerous task. It requires specific skills, tools and finesse to perform good quality service. Climbing ladders to the roof level isn’t an easy task, especially for older people, the risk of falling off the ladder is there plus dealing with moldy and dirty debris requires special protection like masks and gloves and it is much safer to leave it up to professionals to take care of gutter cleaning. Shine Above technicians use ladders and special cleaning tools to remove debris from all parts of the eavestroughs. Climbing ladders isn’t always easy, especially for seniors or elderly people, so you can rely on our technicians to do this dangerous work. Our team has had extensive training to ensure the safety of technicians and is also WCB and liability insured.
