Gutters play a critical role in preventing water damage from occurring to your home, basement, or property by channeling all rainwater from your roof and disposing of it in the proper location.
Over time, gutters may become obstructed with debris and dead leaves, and as a result, need to be unclogged and cleaned. Ensuring that your gutters are kept clear is an important part of preventing future damage. However, cleaning gutters isn’t always an easy task. Below are several reasons why it’s important to consider hiring a professional to unclog gutters.
Unclogging gutters can be a dangerous job. Climbing a ladder and performing roof work can lead to severe accidents if you do not have the necessary training and experience.
Also, gutter cleaning is when you often discover other hazards, such as bees or wasps nests. Jeopardizing your safety for a minor cost savings isn’t worth the risk. Professional gutter cleaners have trained for safety and often have years of experience.
Because gutters and downspouts contain debris and rainwater, they are a breeding ground for bacteria and mold. Furthermore, they often contain many allergens that could cause minor to severe allergic reactions. Professionals make it a point to wear protective equipment that limits their exposure to any harmful materials that may be stored in your gutters.
Time and Efficiency
Gutter cleaning is a time intensive job that should be performed twice a year: once in the early spring and once in late fall. The job requires several tools and materials including a ladder, cleaning substances, and safety gear. Because a trained professional comes equipped with the materials, skills, and experience, they’re able to ensure the job is done most efficiently in a fraction of the time.
By hiring a professional to unclog gutters, you can ensure the job is done quickly, safely, and efficiently. For more information on keeping your gutters clean, call Apollo Home Heating, Cooling and Plumbing today!
"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."
