Get Your Gutters Cleaned at the Beginning of Fall

Schedule Now

Fall is the season for contacting a professional gutter cleaning service in Cincinnati. Most home maintenance experts advise cleaning the gutters twice a year, at the outset of fall and spring when gutter dysfunction is most likely.

Gutters are more than just an appendage to conveniently divert water off the roof. Here are some reasons why a gutter cleaning service in Cincinnati is an important part of seasonal home maintenance in the fall.

Autumn means falling leaves. Organic debris like leaves and twigs accumulate in the gutter, obstructing the free flow of water. At the first rain or snow-melt, clogged gutters overflow and a waterfall encircles your home.?

Overflowing gutters cause structural damage. The exterior siding of your home is designed to resist exposure to raindrops—not a continuous cascade of water from an oveflowing gutter above. Water flowing down the exterior penetrates the siding and causes damage to the interior of the wall structure as well as triggers toxic mold growth.

Instead of being safely conveyed away from the house by functional gutter downspouts, the additional effect of water pooling on the ground adjacent to the home may cause infiltration into the foundation and/or basement walls.

Blocked gutters deform and deteriorate. Gutter supports aren’t designed to withstand the continuous weight of standing water in a clogged gutter. Obstructed gutters may bend, pull loose from mountings, and eventually collapse. Rust and corrosion due to constant presence of water in the gutters may also cause leakage.

Gutter water turns toxic. Stagnant, standing water inside clogged gutters forms a breeding ground for insects, attracts vermin, such as rodents, and provides a perfect environment for algae and mold growth.

Cleaning gutters properly can be difficult, hazardous work that requires professional expertise and equipment not available to the average do-it-yourselfer. Balancing on a ladder or attempting to stand on a wet, sloping roof while removing heavy amounts of saturated, decomposing leaves presents obvious safety hazards.

"Ernie & Mike did a superb job on my new furnace and A/C installation. Despite having more than a day’s work to do, they came in and stayed until the job was done. They were organized, efficient, and protected the rest of the house well. Got both furnace and A/C installed the same day. Ernie was courteous, informative, and clearly knew his job better than anyone I’ve encountered before. The units look so good guests now get The Tour of our new system. Apollo is clearly not a fly-by-night company. I would recommend them to anyone in need of a new furnace and/or A/C."

"I called Apollo because of a water leak I thought I had in our upstairs shower going into the kitchen. Robbie came and assured me everything was fine & looked at all the other plumbing. He ended up changing a few pipes for our washer & clearing a drain. He was very nice & knowledgeable with all my questions. I ended up signing up for the care plan & was very happy with my service."

"The team at Apollo exceeded my expectations. As a business owner, my attention to the details and commitment to providing excellent service is high. From the sales rep. to the installation team, everyone’s performance was outstanding. For example, the installation team went to great lengths to protect our floors, placing floor runners and across the wood floors and up the stairs. They even were spot washing walls upon their departure. I highly recommend this company."

"We scheduled an estimate AND a tune-up. We knew something was wrong with our furnace, but hoped we could make it through the rest of the season. Upon telling Bill what our furnace was doing, he warned us immediately what the possible outcome was going to be; a cracked heat exchanger. He watched the flames roll backward, tested carbon monoxide levels, which were so high they meter’s last reading was 5,600 before saying “high”. He immediately shut it down, tagged it, and explained that with levels that high and children in our home he wanted off right away. He continued his inspection and showed us via a camera that not only was it cracked in multiple places, but had holes all over it. He gave us a few options for repairing it; his knowledge as well as genuine concern was beneficial and refreshing. Luckily we also scheduled an estimator, Micah, to come too and we were able to get costs between repairing and replacing (with several options). We decided to replace with a much higher efficiency furnace and one sized properly to our home. Hands down, not only did they both provide us great service and knowledge, but without sounding dramatic, they may have saved our lives. This was our first time calling Apollo, but it won’t be our last."

"Apollo is an excellent company. I always receive great service. Alex A. was professional and friendly. He kept me informed during the process of checking my furnace and heat pump to make sure they were working properly. The company makes sure you are notified who is coming and when they are on the way. All my interactions with the company have been wonderful."
