The purpose of your gutter system is to direct rainwater away from your roof, siding, trim, landscaping, and most importantly, your home’s foundation. Regular gutter cleaning eliminates clogs caused by leaves, dirt, and other debris that prevent your gutters from protecting your property.
Rainwater can spill over or leak, and cascade down the side of your home. Then pool along your foundation, erode the soil and uproot or flood your landscaping. Downspouts may also clog and detach. When water is trapped, the weight of it can loosen or rip the gutter free, causing damage to structural integrity. Standing water and excessive moisture are hazardous in other ways. Mismanaged rainfall encourages mold, mildew, and wood rot. It is also a preferred breeding pool for many pests, including mosquitoes, rodents, and other critters.
Consider pairing YardDoc’s gutter cleaning with Austin organic pest control services to prevent multiple threats to your home.

Travis County is host to several types of expansive soils. Also known as shrink-swell, these clay soils act as a sponge, expanding when water is absorbed and shrinking when it dries out. This shrink and swell cycle causes repetitive stress on your home’s structure.
Rain, wind, and soil expansion move and erode the ground soil around the base of your foundation, causing settlement issues and cracks. This type of damage is not typically covered by homeowners insurance, and it sneaks up, undetected until the damage is so severe that sometimes the cost of required repairs is financially disastrous.
Gutter cleaning is an inexpensive service as compared to the damage caused by poorly performing gutters. No need for you to climb a ladder and put yourself in jeopardy working along your roofline.
