Do I need a water damage restoration company for clogged gutters?

Clogged gutters often result from debris like leaves, twigs and roofing material blocking the flow of rain water through the gutter and the downspouts. Most gutter systems last about 20 years. The purpose of a gutter system is to direct water off the roof and away from the foundation. Obstructions can cause rain water to flow in unwanted directions and/or stay too close to your building ultimately causing foundation water damage, wet basement, wall and ceiling damage and water-logged flooring. Additionally, wood rot can result if clogged gutters cause water to remain in contact with the wood trim, fascia or siding.

If possible, stop the water overflowing the gutters. Trying to cleanup clogged gutter water in the basement is difficult when the rain water continues to pour in! You might need to clean the clogged gutter or add downspouts that direct water away from the building. Long-term landscape grading might be necessary to direct the flow of rain water away from the building to prevent further water damage.

Quickly soak up water leaking from gutter into the house. As soon as you notice water coming through the foundation, you will want to extract standing water. If you caught the problem early and there is only a small amount of water, towels or a mop can be used to soak it standing water. Water extraction equipment – like a wet vac – and air movers (fans) will likely be necessary to ensure all the moisture from the water leak in foundation is removed. Dehumidifiers will accelerate the drying process.

If you have more than one inch of water from Denver clogged gutters, you may need professional assistance. Abbotts can be on-site within 60 minutes.
