Protect Your Gutters With Gutter Guards
The best way to clean your dirty gutters is to never let them get dirty in the first place: use Gutter Guards! Gutter guards are like preventive medicine; rather than wait for symptoms to develop and then treat them with expensive medication, put preventive measures in place before the problem develops.
Gutter guards help to keep drain-clogging, natural debris out of your gutters. While these guards may still need to be cleaned out and cleared off, it helps to protect the functionality of your gutters. This gutter protection product is typically sold in 3-foot or 4-foot pieces.
Gutter guards come in various styles that fit into or onto a variety of gutter types such as k-style, half-round, copper, aluminum, and steel.
There is a class of gutter guard systems that work on a principle called water adhesion.
The Science Behind The Leafless Seamless Gutter System
How do these gutter guard systems keep water flowing freely into gutters and at the same time keep debris out?
The simple, scientific principle of liquid adhesion. As water flows over the downward slope of these gutter guards it adheres to the product because of the molecular attraction between the surface of gutter guard and the surface of the water. Water is subject to adhesive forces more so than many other liquids because of its unique chemical structure of hydrogen and oxygen.
There are several different varieties of adhesion, but the one that is at play with the water in your gutter system is dispersive adhesion. Two materials, in this case water and the gutter guard, are held together by intermolecular forces. The water is carried down into channels, then through its drain holes into your gutter. At the same time, leaves, needles, seedlings and other debris fall over the downward steps of the gutter guard system and onto the ground below.
On homes just like yours, these gutter guard systems have proven effective in significantly cutting down or eliminating gutter clogging and debris buildup while maintaining water flow.
Thanks to surface tension, you’ll never have to worry about clogged gutters ever again.
