Downspout Cleaning Service in Milwaukee

Milwaukee Gutter Downspout Cleaning Service

A downspout clog will prevent your gutter system from working effectively and can lead to water damage. Whether your downspout was clogged from a severe storm or a build-up of debris, the Roto-Rooter drain cleaning service extends to outdoor clogs.

Clogged gutters need cleaning. Have Roto-Rooter Milwaukee do it for you.

Leaves and twigs fall on your roof, wind kicks up, rain pours down, and those leaves end up clogged in your downspout. Clean downspouts give the water an organized path away from your gutter system, your house, and its foundation; clogged downspouts do not.

Why should you clean your downspouts? 

  • Steers rain away from a building's foundation
  • Helps prevent basement flooding
  • Prevents rotting material from turning into a haven for mold and bugs

How does rain affect the foundation?

Rainwater seeps into the ground and needs a place to go. Your basement is a big cavity in the ground where the rain would have otherwise gone, so it's going to try to get in there. Gutters channel the water to the downspouts, and the downspouts lead the water away from your foundation, maintaining its integrity and saving you thousands of dollars in foundation repair costs.

How often should you clean your downspouts?

It's recommended that you clean your downspouts at least 2 times a year to avoid a clog. That's only an average. If you live under a lot of tall trees, it might be better for you to clean them 3 or 4 times a year or after big autumn storms when sticks and leaves are shaken off the trees.

Rain will find any minor cracks in your foundation and hide there until forced to leave. Since this is Wisconsin, land of the Frozen Tundra, winter will freeze that water, and water expands when it freezes, making the crack even larger. Next year, more rain will get in that crack and freeze, enlarging the crack. And the cycle goes on and on until you notice it on the inside wall. Then it's too late. The damage is done. Keep your foundation in great condition by utilizing the downspout drain cleaning services of Roto-Rooter Milwaukee. We offer professional downspout cleaning services that remove the hassle of doing it yourself.
