Ice & Snow Removal

Gutter Ice and Snow Removal

The winter has its moments of great beauty and its moments of great stress.  When snow is falling it tends to beautify a stark landscape that is devoid of the lush greenery of summer.  But when the snow is done falling it needs to be cleaned up.  While cleaning up the pathways, sidewalks, patios and driveways around a house of business is easy, there are other areas where snow and ice build-up is much more necessary as the increased risk of damage and danger.  The most important of these areas are the gutters and downspouts that make up the drainage network on your home or place of business.

When gutters are clogged due to snow and ice, overflows of water are just one of the threats.  As the snow and ice builds up it also has the potential to fall on those passing below it.  Add into this the formation of icicles that also could fall and you have a potential dangerous and life-threatening situation that you could be liable for.  Add into that the fact that older gutters that may not be as securely attached to the building can collapse completely under the weight of built up accumulations of snow and ice and the danger and risk multiplies.

When your gutters are clogged with gathering masses of snow and ice, they need to be cleaned to avert damage to your property and to those moving around your property.  In regular conditions, cleaning gutters is an activity filled with risk if done by an inexperienced individual.  When the weather is cold and unpredictable, when the areas where you have to clean is made more challenging by the presence of ice and snow, you cannot take risks with DIY fixes.  You need to call All-Island Gutter Cleaning.
