Why Is Gutter Cleaning Important?
Gutters play a huge role in maintaining your home’s well being, helping to control the flow of rainwater to protect your walls, roof, landscape and foundation. If we neglect our gutters (by not cleaning them) they can turn from necessity to nightmare!
What can happen to clogged gutters
Your home’s gutter can easily become clogged with leaves, sticks and other debris which can therefore cause a leaky roof or water damage to the interior and exterior of your home. This can cause your home to be more open to rodents and mold which can be a costly job to fix. Regular gutter cleaning eliminates the debris from your gutter, thereby ensuring that they work as intended.
One of the top reasons to clean your gutters is to prevent water damage, the top cause of structural damage. A clogged gutter can cause roof leaks which can damage your ceiling, your walls, your floor, your fascia board and other parts of your home. This can reduce the stability of your building – reducing its value. Gutter cleaning extends the lifespan of your roof, clogged gutters can trap ice which adds unnecessary weight and stress on your roof. The additional weight could cause your roof to then collapse unexpectedly.
Clogged gutters will not drain water as it should, causing the water to freeze in winter which can move your shingles apart causing more roof leaks.
