If you would like to save your home’s foundation from long-term water damage, it’s recommended to get your gutters cleaned at least twice a year in the spring and fall! The Gutter Boys are the perfect company to maintain your gutters and downspouts and make sure your gutter system stays clean and free-flowing.
The reason why getting your gutters cleaned in Beachwood Ohio is simple…water is heavy! As the soil around your home becomes soaked with water, the soil will expand, and the weight of the moisture will begin to press upon the foundation. This is known as hydro-static pressure. As hydro-static pressure builds against your foundation, water will work its way in through any way possible. It will, quite literally, find the path of least resistance.
Water can make its way through concrete cracks in the walls or floors, through openings around pipes, through basement windows, or even directly through the porous concrete. If you have block walls, water may pass through the block and begin to fill the open cavities. If you have an older home, this reality is something you know well.
One of the best ways to avoid water coming into your basement is to keep the gutters and downspouts clean. Again, managing water away from your home is exactly what your gutters and downspouts are for, and they do that most efficiently when regularly maintained.
