Clean Gutters Are Good for the Health of Your Home

Cleaning gutters may not be your favorite chore in the fall, but it can sure save you a lot of money if you keep them clean and free of clogs. Neglected gutters can cause serious problems with your roof, and that can be expensive to repair. A bit of gutter maintenance a few times a year is a good way to avoid those expenses.

What Gets Caught in Gutters?

Leaves, small sticks, and seed pods fall from trees near your home, creating clogs. These clogs can build up and restrict water flow through the gutters. Eventually, water can spill over the edges, possibly damaging the garden areas below. The clog can also create its own little ecosystem for bugs and small critters who will try to find a way into your warm home.

How Often Should Gutters be Cleaned?

Gutters need cleaning twice a year or more if you have a lot of trees near your home. If you live in a dry climate with few trees, you may not have to clean your gutters as often.

Why Is Gutter Cleaning Important?

Leaves, especially wet leaves, can leave a soggy mess in your gutters. Even the downspout can get clogged with small sticks, leaves, and other debris. If the water cannot flow freely through the gutters, your roof may suffer water damage. A roof with water damage can result in leaks that lead to further damage to the interior of your home.
