The Importance of Cleaning Your Commercial Property’s Gutters
Colder weather is upon us, are your property’s gutters prepared?
Clean your gutters! Without regular cleaning, the drainage system will become clogged and/or compromised.
This can result in:
- Sanitary hazards
- Electrical damage
- Structural damage to the building
- Unsightly building stains
- Damage to exterior appearances such as sidewalks and foundations
- Dangerous falling ice
Ignoring your gutters before the winter may cause the standing water within the gutters to freeze. This means more build-up and more freezes. The weight can eventually cause the gutters to shift, resulting in malfunction.
Commercial properties require different types of attention, but the most opportune time to prepare your gutters is in the fall and spring seasons when leaves, twigs, and other debris collect. A professional can assess your gutters efficiently and safely, making any repairs.
A property manager can help prevent your commercial property from experiencing a costly disaster. Understanding the value of your property and the utmost importance of maintaining and improving upon that value is vital.
