Cleaning Tasks That Require Pressure Washing
Here at Pressure Washing El Cajon as humdrum as this might seem, gutter cleaning is one of the most important tasks you will ever perform to protect your home.

Your home will also be protected from pests and insects and/or moss growing in your home. On top of that, properly cleaning your home will give it a better overall appearance.
Water Damage From Flooding
The sole purpose of your gutters is to carry water away from your home which includes your foundation when you experience heavy rain. When your gutters become blocked up with debris and the growth of moss, they cannot move the water away as they are supposed to. Your home will be at risk of flood damage from serious rain and your entire foundation can destroy the integrity of your home. On top of that, if the water is not properly moved away, it can easily drain into your basement causing even further structural issues that will damage the structure of your home once it enters the interior. Also, a clogged drain can cause your roof to produce the build-up of water, debris, leaves, and inevitably damage your ceilings. It’s like dominoes, one problem can lead to another and then another. By properly keeping your gutters well maintained and clean, you can prevent a lot of structural problems that will be a serious headache to repair.

The Life Of Your Roof
When your gutters are clear of debris, it’s beneficial especially during the winter months. If your gutters are blocked, they will collect water in cold weather and turn into ice. Ice can be easily trapped by leaves and even stick to other blockages. Blockages will continue to build up when left unchecked. Also, these blockages will gain in weight inside your gutters which, over time, will tear down your roof. Unfortunately, this can happen in a moment’s notice causing your roof material to give way and collapse. This would be bad enough in any season, but in the wintertime, it will be horrible.
Continually checking your gutters throughout the year will ensure they are free and clear of debris and protect your home from any structural damage.
