Worry-Free Gutter Cleaning

Do you know if your gutters are full of debris and stagnant water? Most people don’t and it’s out-of-sight/out-of-mind.  It’s a problem that isn’t going away and doesn’t get better on its own. A clogged downspouts and gutters filled with debris can cause a variety of different water damages to your home. It can easily be prevented with regular gutter cleaning. 

Your gutters are an integral part of your home’s building envelope and keeping your gutter fully-functional is an integral part of property maintenance. The purpose of your gutters is to channel away water from your home’s roof line and foundation. If your gutters are clogged, it causes the water to overflow. This can lead to expensive repairs. Stagnant water sitting in your gutters is a prime breeding ground for insects, like mosquitoes and ants. Roaches absolutely love it and they will eventually find their way into your house.  An additional problem is that bug companies don’t spray insecticide in your gutters.  Yay!

Some of you might be thinking that gutter cleaning is a simple task that you can do yourself, but it is actually a difficult and even dangerous task. It requires you to work on top of a ladder which is the number 1 cause of home-related injuries in the world.  We clean gutters and use ladders the safest way possible. This is why gutter cleaning is best left in the hands of highly-trained and fully-insured professionals.

Due to the subtropical climate we have in the Lowcountry, our gutters need to be always fully functional. The best way to maintain your gutters is to get regular professional gutter cleaning at least twice a year. Pelican Exterior Washing is a locally-owned business based in Charleston, SC. We live here and have been doing this for 12 years. Pelican Exterior Washing provides Gutter Cleaning Service so our clients won’t have to worry when the forecast is cloudy!

The Benefits of Gutter Cleaning

Prevent Damage and Erosion

A clogged gutter can overflow at every rainfall.  This overflow can cause water to seep behind your home’s siding, speed up wood decay, damage paint, and even erode its foundation. Gutters filled with water are very heavy, so over time they may fall off of your house completely.

Prevent Basement Flooding

Overflowing gutters is one of the main reasons for basement flooding. This can destroy some valuable belongings that you keep inside your basement. 

Improve Your Home’s Visual Appeal

Gutter cleaning is not primarily an aesthetic service. Its main purpose is to keep your gutters clog-free and fully functional. However, many clogged gutters are visible from the street.  Dirty gutters make the house look unkept and skanky. Yes, I said skanky.  Clean gutters look the way they are supposed to look. Which is not skanky.
Prevent Insect and Pests
The stagnant water in a clogged gutter is prime breeding ground for mosquitoes, ants, and roaches. When we clean gutters, as gross as it sounds, we sometimes pull out a ton of insects with the handful of leaves.  Many times, in the thick of the summer, the stagnant water stinks to high heaven. Yuck! 
Avoid Accidents and Damages To Your Home

Gutter cleaning requires working on top of a ladder or getting on the roof.  We use the proper equipment and techniques and follow strict company safety guidelines to ensure no one gets hurt. Ladder work is very dangerous if done by an inexperienced individual. (It looks easy when you’re watching.) If not done properly, it can cause damages to your home or unwanted injuries.

Valor and Hunter were extremely professionals, very nice young men and left our house exterior extremely clean. We are really impressed with the amazing job they both did for two and a half hours going over and over places around the roof trimming that were tough to reach.

We had a great experience with Pelican Exterior Washing. They were professional and timely. They did such a great job on our driveway and porches that we asked them to come back and do our patio. They were able to do it the very next day! Highly recommend.

These folks did a great job. They were punctual, polite, professional and proficient. They took time to pay attention to detail and gave it that extra little effort that as both a small business owner and homeowner I can truly appreciate. I’d recommend their services to anyone and I’ll be using them again as well. Thanks Pelican!

Highly recommend. Mark worked us in on a cancellation and we were not prepared for the crew and hadn't cleared the porch of furniture and plants. His crew took it all in stride, insisting they would move everything and replace it. These young men were courteous, professional, and very accommodating. The house and job look like new! Thank you for a job well done!!
