SCHEDULING THE MOST IMPORTANT CHORE - GUTTER CLEANING

Scheduling your gutter cleaning after snow, ice and Spring or Fall debris is down is one of the most important chore to do.  You can have peace of mind knowing that there is no debris in the gutter to help contribute to damaged gutters.  Leftover debris from last fall is already putting serious stress on your gutters and the fascia board that they are attached to.  If your gutters are not properly secured or your fascia has begun to deteriorate due to the every day weather conditions your gutters can fall off.  By having your gutters checked during a routine cleaning you can help prevent damage.  A fallen gutter that is not damaged is not as bad as a gutter that is hanging and bent.  Once the gutter is bent it can not be repaired.

A yearly gutter maintenance check-up will alert you to any issues that may be going on with your gutters.  Keltom Gutters offers a maintenance plan to fit every home....whether you have tons of leaves and need it done more often or if your home gets hardly any leaves and want to clean your gutters once a year, we can help. 

Snow and ice are heavy and the weight of it in your gutters can cause serious damage to your current gutter system which will allow your home to be subject to water damage once the weather clears and everything starts melting.  The problem that you run into is that after the heavy snow your gutter repairs and evaluation is too late.  You also  forgot to clean your gutters in the Fall so now there is even more weight in your gutter.  This is why proper regular gutter maintenance is so important.

We are currently scheduling for Spring  gutter cleaning and as a new customer or recurring customer we are here to help.

Fairs, Festivals in NJ while NOT CLEANING YOUR GUTTERS!

Keltom Gutter Services says" Get out of the house, go to some fairs and festivals, enjoy the spring weather and let us to the dirty work for you.

No one wants to have to 1. drag out, 2. find or borrow a ladder 3. clean your gutters.  Not everyone is perfect and okay you forgot to clean your gutters in the fall and now the water is overflowing along the house ruining your landscape, damaging your windows and your wife is yelling at you to get out of the house and have some fun.

Below is information about us and a short list of fun things to do while not cleaning your gutters.

Our gutter cleaning service the easiest ways to avoid damage to your home.  Regular  gutter maintenance is one of the most important home maintenance chores you need to do.

Gutters or leaders act as the first defense against rain and snow damage on key parts of your home. When cleaned annually or biannually, we prepare them for any moisture by draining it away from the home and into the yard. It’s important to clean them out twice a year—especially in autumn after leaves fall—to avoid paying thousands of dollars on repairs to the roof, foundation, or siding from seasonal storms and improper drainage.

The downspouts also play a key role in the gutters as well. If they are filled with debris, then the water will not drain into the yard, which means back-filling the gutters which cause damage to the soffit, fascia and siding and very likely the house interior.

Several factors come into play with our gutter cleaning service: is the home multi-level or single level?  How many sides of your house have gutters, what type of roof does the house have, does the house have any type of gutter guard or screens?  Why do we ask about the type of roof you have? If you have a slate or cedar roof then our technicians will not walk on the roof. Solid gutter guards on top of your gutters need special attention....as a result you may think that debris will not get into the gutters but build up of debris over the years can cause your gutters to block and cause water damage.  Birds like to build nests and small animals hide their food and treats in your gutters! Screens on your gutters also require special attention. Screens come loose and leaves and debris accumulate.

Have copper gutters?  Ladder stabilizers are used to make sure the ladders do not touch the gutters.

NOW is the time to gt your gutters cleaned to protect your home.

October Home Maintenance - always top-down

Many homeowners think okay I'll do the easy stuff first...mostly on the ground.  Doing top-down is the best way to avoid double work.  I mean think about it....your roof needs repair whether it is wood, asphalt shingle,or slate repairs are messy.  Gutters need repair, cleaning or maybe even new ones, again messy. Chimney needs cleaning or repair - messy.  Having your windows cleaned for the holidays?  Top-down!!  Why clean the landscaping twice?? So the best thing to do is take a look at the list below and try to get in the mood to do all that is necessary to protect your most valuable asset - your home. 

The fun of owning your own home........below is a list of the top fall maintenance chores.

  • Have your furnace or chimney cleaned-It’s been awhile since you’ve had to light any fires or turn on the heat, but soon those cold temperatures will be back. Have a qualified technician come in and check it out. Don’t forget to change your furnace filter too!

  • Check for roof damage– Now is the time to see the damage before it’s covered up by ice, snow, and whatever Oklahoma weather throws at us.

  • Clean out gutters and downspouts-Don’t let that debris clutter up. It could cause bigger damage later on.

  • Double check your caulk-Check for caulk corrosion around doors and windows to make sure there’s not deterioration. Also, check around showers, bathtubs, sinks, and toilets to make they are all seal accordingly. With cold temperatures, bugs love to find any path into a warm space.

  • Clean out the clothes dryer exhaust duct and area beneath the dryer– Remove any fire hazard by removing all lint, dust, and pieces of material that may have made its way down there.

  • Exam your electrical outlets for any wear and tear or potential fire hazards. Frayed wires or ill-fitting plugs can all be red flags.

  • Update your fire extinguisher– Make sure your fire extinguisher is still up to date. Not to mention, some companies offer a discount just for having one.

  • Inspect your smoke detectors– Check all the batteries and make sure there is at least one on each floor of your home, because you missed the day on March 31.

  • Have your wood-burning fireplace inspected, cleaned and repaired to prevent chimney fires and carbon monoxide poisoning.

  • Wrap water pipes that run along exterior walls with heating tape. It will save energy and prevent them from freezing.

  • Clean and replace filters in your furnace or heating system. Contact a licensed heating contractor to inspect and service your gas heater or furnace to avoid carbon monoxide poisoning. Your local utility company will often provide this service for free.

  • If you use a hot water system for heating, drain the expansion tank, check the water pressure, and bleed your radiators. 

  • Check the attic to make sure the insulation is installed properly. The vapor barrier on insulation should face down toward the living space. If it is installed incorrectly (with the vapor barrier facing up) then the insulation will trap moisture causing possible water problems. Cut slits in the vapor barrier to allow moisture to escape. To install attic insulation, unroll the insulation with the paper side out. Install small pieces of insulation between the joists on the attic floor. Be careful not to step between the joists.

Many of the chores listed you can do your self but I personally don’t recommend that you go on the roof for any chore.  Accidents happen – why take a chance when there are people like us whose job it is to inspect, clean and service your gutters. Been in business over 23 years in 13 counties in NJ so by this time we know what we are doing. That’s our job.

WHY DO I NEED AN UNDERGROUND DRAIN??

Underground drains,not the best way for drainage. Downspouts that flow into underground drains are found in more than 1/3 of the houses in NJ.  Why is that?  Undergrounds as they are called direct the water from your gutters into this tiny little pipe that either goes to a dry well (which believe me is not all that dry and clogs up) or supposedly to a downward slope area on your property with an exit point.  Have you ever looked for this exit point?  Can you even find it after the weeds have grown in and the landscapers ran over it with the mower 132 times?  Is there even an exit point or somehow the pipe just goes into a black hole?  Did you watch when they put that pipe in?

Clogs in your underground drains are caused by a number of reasons.............time (how old are they?) debris which falls all year long, animals taking up residence (making nests, having babies), weeds and vegetation growing (especially if your drains were installed when PVC perforated was the way to go)  Clay pipes? Even older and have their own problems....moisture over time allows them to soften. AND repairs are expensive....

There are different ways that you can channel the water in your gutters away from your home. Some houses use downspouts that direct the flow of water downhill or down a slanted driveway. Extensions put on the downspouts direct the water away from the foundation.  Even though the ground elevation is relatively flat the water will flow.  Call us to see if you can have your downspouts moved...I mean why is it there?  Can it be redirected?  I personally have extensions that are 6' long to bypass my mulch and spill out into the lawn.  Yeah I know that they are not as pretty but....they also don't clog and just so you know they match my gutters.

Ditch the underground drains.......

SPRING HOME MAINTENANCE - TOP TO BOTTOM

THE FLOWERS ARE OUT, SUNNY DAYS ARE HERE AND NOW YOU'RE THINKING ABOUT DOING HOME MAINTENANCE. Top to Bottom is the way to go......

To help you cover all the bases, we’ve come up with a handy spring-maintenance checklist. Consult it every year and your home will thank you.

  1. Inspect Brickwork and Stucco - Spalling is a chipping or popping away of a brick’s face, leaving the brick’s interior susceptible to moisture and crumbling. Look for this and any deteriorated mortar that typically occurs on older homes.

    4. Inspect Your Roof - Shingles that curl (turn up) and claw (turn down) can make your roof inefficient and susceptible to leaks. Call a minimum of three roofers before committing to one for repairs. You’ll educate yourself in the process and end up with a better deal.

    5. Get a Chimney Checkup - Have a professional chimney sweep clean and inspect your active or decorative chimney. Professionals should also check the chimney flue and cap for cracks or leaking.

    6. Check Your Heat/Air Unit; Change Batteries in Detectors - Change filters and clean the air purifier as needed. - Have your ducts professionally cleaned. It’ll make your indoor air quality healthier and your furnace more efficient.


Is that leaf still hanging on? Keltom cleans gutters

Why do some leaves take longer than others???   Keltom  has the answer.

“If autumn days are cool, trees quicken the change. If autumn days are warm, trees delay the change".

Those dead, bleached-brown beech and oak leaves rattling in a January wind – but somehow still clinging to their twigs – are symbolic. Like ecological pennants, they announce that beech and oak are not quite finished; that these species are still works in progress.  Every leaf has a finite life span; each will fade and fall at some regular interval. But there is great variation in the timing of this leaf fall. At one end of the spectrum, there are evergreens. Though they appear to be fully leafed at all times, evergreen leaves are not always green, and entire age classes of needles die, turn brown, and fall every year. On the other end of the spectrum are deciduous trees, which seem to drop their leaves all at once after a pigment party every fall.

If you waited for every single leaf to fall you would never get your gutters cleaned!!    We know leaves and gutters - that's why we are scheduling gutter cleanings NOW!!   Dirty gutters are bad...plain and simple ...they can cause all kings of damage to your home, windows, doors and landscape.  We offer no mess cleanings...we don't use blowers which reduces the amount of debris that can dirty your landscape.  Have a specialty roof?  Copper gutters?   We use ladder stabilizers and never walk on slate or cedar roofs.
