BPM Gutter Cleaning
Gutter Cleaning Omaha NE
We all know what gutters are supposed to do. It’s not exactly rocket science. They take water from your roof and funnel it into our drainage system.
But what happens when they become clogged with dirt and mud and leaves and all manner of debris? What if the water can’t get away?
Gutter cleaning isn’t exactly the first thing one thinks about when thinking about a fun Saturday afternoon activity. There are many other things you might prefer to do; spending time with your family, watching Netflix, just lazing the day away.
But that is why we, at BPM Gutter Cleaning Omaha are here. We do what you don’t want to do. We take care of your gutter cleaning needs.
And you do need to clean them. That question that we asked before – what if the water can’t get away? The answer is … it may just damage your house.
Water is heavy. And it is corrosive. We see its corrosive properties as ‘rust’. Water that can’t get away because of blocked gutters can spill onto your roof, and given time, may cause rotting to appear on your roof and leaks to show up.
Now, you have water leaking into your house, and you don’t know it, and that can, over time, cause even more damage.

Our Gutter Cleaning Services
Residential Gutter Cleaning Omaha NE
To many of us, all gutters do is make sure water gets off the roof and down the drainpipes; we don’t give much thought to them than that.
And we definitely don’t give much thought into how clean they are. If they work, that’s all we care about.
But even as we aren’t thinking about, your gutters could be getting clogged up with dirt, mud, vegetation and debris, and water might already be blocked up and pooling on your roof.
Blocked water can cause rot and rust problems to your roof, leading to leaks, while the weight of the water-drenched clog could be causing your gutter to warp, sag and deform, necessitating the need for a future gutter repair.
Calling us for our gutter cleaning service can save money on costly repairs later.

What Are Some Signs My Gutters Are Blocked?
It can sometimes be hard to tell if your gutters are blocked. Most people don’t have the ability to see the top of their own roofs, so knowing what’s going on up there, can be difficult. You don’t want to wait until you are experiencing leaks in your roof before realizing there was something wrong up there. Here are some helpful signs that show that your gutters might have become too blocked with debris.
A simple way of telling if they are blocked is to see what happens to the water after a downpour. Naturally, if they are blocked and water can’t get down the downpipe, the water will have to go somewhere. If the water pours over the sides of the gutter, rather than going down the downpipe, you may have issues with a blocked gutter. Unless you have just experienced a torrential downpour and have experienced a volume of water the gutter couldn’t handle in even its optimum state, water spilling over the side of a gutter is a good sign.
Waiting for a stormy day isn’t the only way to tell whether your gutter has problems. Take a look at them, and try and determine if they are sagging away from the roof. Gutters are not designed to take much weight for long periods of time, and blockages of dirt, mud and debris, especially when mixed with water that can’t flow down the drainpipe, can get pretty heavy. So, if it’s rained recently, sagging gutters can be a good sign that they are carrying too much weight due to a blockage.
Also, check for rust and mildew. Water unable to flow down your gutters to the drainpipe will begin to cause mildew and rust to appear near where the blockage is taking place.
A further clue relates to seeing whether birds and rodents are taking a closer interest in your gutters. Rodents in particular love the safety a block gutter filled with mud, leave and debris can give it from predators, and birds, particularly nesting birds, love the free housing material on offer in the blockage itself, in the form of leaves and twigs.
And a final clue, and perhaps one of the easiest clues to spot, is check to see whether there is vegetation actually growing from your gutter. If, from the ground level, you can see greenery growing from your gutters, you can be pretty certain you have a blockage.
Do I Really Need To Clean My Gutters?
Well, yes … but what else would you expect us to say.
But there is a really good reason to clean your gutters, and that reason is the very reason why they exist in the first place.
As you know, gutters exist to get water off the roof and down into the drainage system. When they work correctly, the water will go precisely where it is meant to go, But when they are blocked, you no longer have any control or say in where the water will go.
We all know the effects of water of wood and metal. Metal rusts and wood becomes weak.
When you aren’t in control of where the water goes, when the water in your gutters is able to pool together without you being able to move it on, the water will begin affecting your roof, your walls and your foundations. Pooling water on your roof may, over time, cause your roof to rot in places, letting in water leaks, as well as the insects that are attracted to pooling water. This can be very costly to repair. And water pooling at your foundations, rather than going down your drainpipe, can cause problems there as well.
Why Don't I Clean Them Myself?
Well, you could.
That is … assuming you are experienced in knowing where to place ladders on gutters so they can support your weight (gutters, that you know, may not be as strong as they should be, because of being blocked); and also experienced in working at heights and carrying equipment up and down ladders.
We would seriously ask you to think twice about cleaning them yourself. And if you do think twice, and still want to clean them yourself, we’d ask you to think a third time.
It takes experience and training working from ladders. Sometimes the hardest part of climbing a ladder is getting off it onto a roof, and getting back on it from a roof. This is particularly challenging if the gutter against which you’ve placed your ladder is old or has buckled under the weight of the blockages; you need to know exactly where to place your ladder so that you can remain safe.
It only takes a fall of a few feet to seriously injure yourself. Every year, 500,000 people in the US injure themselves from ladder-related accidents, and approximately 300 people die.
We don’t want that to be you.
So, why risk it? Particularly when we have the experience required to do it safely, far quicker than you could do it yourself.
