You may not realize it but gutters are one of the most important pieces of any property. Water, especially when it’s allowed to sit for an extended period of time, can do serious damage to a structure. If a gutter system is blocked, it can cause water to pour over the sides and pool around the foundation. Over time, the water can cause cracks to form and damage the foundation, which could eventually result in the collapse of the building. But even if the foundation doesn’t fail, the water is certain to grow mold. Furthermore, if the water isn’t properly diverted, it can cause damage to other areas of the building like the roof, the siding or the landscape.
Commercial properties are especially reliant on a working gutter system because they typically take up a much larger surface area than the average home, which means that they are subjected to much more exposure to the elements. Not to mention, if you fail to provide your business or commercial property’s gutter system with proper, professional maintenance, it could be very hazardous. Not only because it could cause mold growth that can cause respiratory problems for your staff and customers, it is also likely that the water does damage to important assets like servers, specialized equipment, stock or other valuables.
No matter the outcome of flooding caused by blockages, it all reflects poorly on your brand. Failing to provide this type of basic maintenance will make customers and clients think twice about bringing their business to you because what else might you cut corners on?
