Delaware's Gutter Pros

Are you looking for underground down spot cleaning in Delaware? Then look no further than EvenFlow Services. While most gutters are a part of your roofing system some homes in Delaware were designed with gutter downspouts to drains underground. These are commonly referred to as French drains.  The pipes in your French drain are buried underground surrounding your basement with a trench that is filled with gravel. Instead of water flooding into your basement the Delaware elements such as rainwater or melted snow and ice flow through the PVC pipes and into the storm's sewer system, dry well or daylight to redirect water away from your home for the safety of your foundation and basement. However, when these drains fill with debris such as leaves, twigs, or even tree roots breaching the pipes of collapsed pipes, your French drains can become clogged. When clogs are not removed from the pipes you may suffer larger more costly home repairs such as cracks in your foundation or basement flooding.

 

How To Know if Your French Drains are Clogged? 

 

Water Pooling: Downspouts are connected to your underground drains with adapters to prevent water from leaking out of the downspouts however if they used the wrong adapter rainwater will spill out even if your gutters are not clogged.  If your unsure if you have clogs in your underground drains, then call us for a free quote.

 

Water coming from downspouts: Another sign you may have a clogged gutter system is if water is pouring out of your downspouts. When your underground drains are clogged water can not get through so the rainwater will fill your downspout. Water may also leak from other seams or elbows of the downspout.

 

Basement Leaks:  One of the most common causes of water leaks in the basement, is related to issues with your gutter system. When the downspout empties too close to your home, water can get into your basement and eventually cause flooding if you don’t remedy the situation.

 

If you want to test your French drains for clogs simply take a garden hose and place it into your underground system and turn on the water. If the water sprays out towards you, your French drains likely have a clog, and you will want to contact a gutter expert to come out to your Delaware home.   Our team is available to clean your French drains and offers free estimates so don’t ignore the problem and hope it goes away. The longer you leave a clog in your French drains the less protected your foundation and basement are to damages, flooding, and landscape erosion.
