Every homeowner is responsible for keeping their house clean. While most tasks can be easily done by yourself, some should be left to professionals. In today’s post, gutter protection service provider Gutter Helmet® of Eastern Shore shares the things around your house that only professionals should clean.

1. Air Ducts — Dust and small particles that get past the air filters can accumulate in your home’s air ducts, which is why they should be cleaned every five years. A standard household duct is much too narrow for conventional cleaning, and therefore needs special equipment for thorough cleaning. HVAC professionals typically seal the duct network first, then a machine generates negative pressure and creates a vacuum, which sucks the particles loosened by a remote-controlled brush. Seams and joints will be sealed afterwards with an aerosol or spray sealant.

2. Black Mold — Black mold thrives in dark and moist areas that are hidden or not easily noticed. Its spores can trigger allergies or lead to respiratory problems. A small spot of black mold can be cleaned with a water and bleach solution, but a widespread infestation needs to be addressed by mold removal professionals. A thorough removal is important, as even the smallest remainders can spread quickly. Professionals have the training and equipment to make sure mold removal is done safely and thoroughly.

3. Crawl Space — Cleaning crawl spaces isn’t as simple as raking in trash and debris and putting them into a garbage bin. One needs to make sure that vermin, standing water and insect colonies are removed. Insulation, air seals, and vapor barriers may also need to be replaced. While it is possible to clean your own crawl space, you’ll probably want to wear protective gear and use proper cleaning equipment—the kind that pros use.

4. Gutters — Gutter cleaning seems fairly easy to do, but the risk of injury from falling is high. Why risk it when you can hire gutter professionals like us to do all the work? We are trained how to clean gutters while using proper safety equipment. In addition to cleaning, we also make sure that all joints and seams are sealed. Consider upgrading to low-maintenance options such as seamless gutters and gutter protection systems like Gutter Helmet®. They can help reduce gutter cleaning and maintenance requirements.
