Importance of Regular Gutter Cleaning
Why Should You Have a Regular Gutter Cleaning Schedule?
Gutters are outside, so most people don’t even realize that the integrity of their gutters directly affects the integrity of their home. If this is the first time you’ve read that, it might sound crazy, but it’s true.
Think about it. Your gutters catch lots of debris, shingle grit, leaves, tiny pieces of branches, and much more, and if left unchecked for too long, they can become clogged from all that material. If that happens, instead of water passing through your gutters, it will back up onto the roof and quite possibly spill down the side of your home, and even worse, become detached from the side of your home.
Many people don’t consider gutters to be a big deal but keeping them clean is extremely important. Their job is to divert water away from home, and when they are unable to do their job, water-damages, such as mold and mildew, foundation damage, basement flooding, roof and siding issues, are likely to happen.
Frequently Cleaning Your Gutters Can Save You the Big Bucks
Your gutters should remain as clean as possible, regardless of the season. The only way that can happen is if you schedule regular cleanings all throughout the year. You should at least have someone check on your gutters once every season.
With the mix of falling leaves and rain that we are likely to get in the fall, gutter cleanings should be more frequent during this particular season. It is best to check them at the start of fall, somewhere down the middle and then again at the end of this season, to make sure everything is ready for winter.
