Top 6 Reasons for Cleaning Your Gutters Regularly
- The prevention of roof damage.
When your gutters are clogged up with leaves, dirt, and other debris it can cause water to run off onto your roof that can lead to the eventual rot of your roof. This will end of costing you a pretty penny in repairs.
- Keeps out pests.
Cleaning out your gutters will effectively rid your home of any unwanted pests. Insects like hornets and bees can build nests inside your gutters with the materials that already exist in them. This can be a danger for both you and your family and is perhaps one of the biggest reasons for maintaining a clean gutter system.
- Damage to structural aspects like the Fascia.
The fascia is a board that runs along the exterior of your home. It actually runs behind your gutters for added structural benefits. If water is left to overflow frequently onto your fascia, you can expect a decent amount of damage is being done to the integrity of your gutters.
- The potential of overwatering your flower beds.
If you let your gutter build up with gunk to the point where they are overflowing, besides causing roof damage, this can also flood your lawn and flower beds with the potentially destroying them.
- The eventual cracking of your home’s foundation.
With the seasons changing every couple of months, the water that builds up in your gutters is affected by these temperature changes and in the winter months it can end up freezing. This causes the integrity of your home to expand with the ice, causing eventual cracks in your foundation.
- Bracket damage.
As I am sure you can imagine, with leaves falling and dirt blowing in the wind, gutters can really take a lot of gunk buildup. With this added weight being taken on the brackets that hold up your gutters can become strained and even broken. Make sure to relieve this weight before your gutters fall.
When looking for a professional to hire, it is important that you time the cleaning just right to prevent frequent, preventable professional visits in the future. Many gutter professionals recommend that you contact them in the fall, when the last leaves are making their way off the trees and onto your rooftop/into your gutters. These circumstances differ of course for anyone living in a climate that stays warm all year. For example, if you like in sunny California or Florida, you are going to encounter trees that have leaves all year round. In these cases you should be checking your gutters much more frequently to ensure there is not a crazy buildup of leaves and debris. In these cases, professionals like to come out every three to six months.
