You should typically have your gutters cleaned at least twice a year to keep them in top condition. Thanks to the constant exposure to the outdoor elements, gutters accumulate a lot of debris, foliage, and pests. Gutter cleaning helps prevent further problems and damage spreading to your roof and home. Here are a few reasons why gutter cleaning is so important.
- Unclog gutters: Your gutters easily get clogged with debris and foliage. Since gutters are designed to control and direct the flow of water away from your home, clogged gutters can be a big problem. With gutter cleaning, though, your gutters can be unclogged and free from all that blockage, which leads us to the next benefit on this list.
- Improve functionality: Overall, your gutters will function better when you don’t have to deal with clogged or sagging gutters. The more weight you have on your gutters from leaves and other debris, the more your gutters will sag, clog, and buckle.
- Prevent damage: Some common problems stemming from gutters include leaky roofs, water stains, mold growth, and more. Leaky roofs can come from water being pushed up from your gutters on the roof. Then, the water can leak into your home and stain your walls and ceilings. And if the moisture stays there for too long, you can get mold in your roof. Having your gutters cleaned helps prevent these damages.
