How to Maintain Gutters, Soffits, and Fascia

gutter cleaning

For most people, cleaning the inside of their home is a regular task and high on their priority list, but the upkeep of certain areas outside of the home may be forgotten. The front of your house is the first thing people see when they arrive, so you want to ensure it looks its best.

Gutter Maintenance

Clean your gutters regularly with a hose to help clear any debris and leaves. You may need a plumbing snake or pressure washer to dislodge anything stuck in your gutters to help prevent clogs and build-up to keep your water drainage running smoothly. Gutter cleaning should be done twice a year, once in spring and once in fall, but if you live in an area with more trees and leaves, you may need to clean them out more. You can also consider installing a gutter helmet or cover to prevent large objects from getting into and clogging your gutters. These will sit on top of your gutter and act as a drain to prevent you from having to clean out your gutters often. Consider adding a gutter splash guard to prevent any dirty water caught in your gutters from splashing onto the side of your home or roof. This can provide adequate drainage for this water and ensure you don’t see any mold or mildew buildup on your home.

Soffit and Fascia Cleaning

Soffits allow for ventilation and proper airflow to your home, and fascia is a piece of “trim” that is the barrier between your home and the roof.The fascia supports the shingles on your roof and helps attach your gutter to your home.Both pieces are essential to keeping your roof and drainage system clean, so keeping them clean is important. If you get a good soffit and fascia installed, it will be mostly maintenance-free, but from time to time, if you notice build-up, you may want to use a pressure washer or hose to clean them out.
