Gutter Cleaning: A Quick Appointment, and A Big Payoff

Gutter Cleaning: A Quick Appointment, and A Big PayoffMaintain Your Gutters Regularly

We often think of gutters as repositories. They’re where leaves and sticks and flyaway branches go; they’re nature’s waste bin, filling up with water and other natural elements.
But while they might keep all of these debris away from your roofs, they can only be expected to do so much. Like a waste bin, they can only get filled with so much before they reach capacity. And if people – or nature – continues to fill it with water and other buildup, then that’s when problems start.

The water can seep through your roof and into your attics or top floor, creating costly issues to the top of your home. What’s more, when the gutters are full, then they can’t do their job. This means that an unchecked flow of water will run around the foundation of your home, which can leak into basements and cause flooding.

When Do You Need To Clean Your Gutters

During the course of a year your gutters collect much more than just rainwater. Without regular gutter cleaning, your gutter system will accumulate debris such as leaves, pine straw, insects, dirt and minerals. In combination, this debris has a tendency to congeal and clog your gutters, blocking the normal flow of water. Once backed-up, falling rainwater will spill over the sides of your gutters eroding your landscaping and the soil which can cause serious damage to the foundation of your home. As winter sets in, water trapped by the blockage in your gutters will freeze creating even more problems as the added weight of the ice can separate your gutters from the home itself and potentially fall and seriously injure someone. Since debris falls into your gutters all year round the best way to avoid clogged gutters is to have them cleaned out at least once a season.

Clean Your Gutters Every YearHard to believe, but it is almost spring. As the old saying goes, April showers bring May flowers. But before those April showers arrive, it is extremely important that you have your gutters checked and cleaned out. Gutter cleaning is often an overlooked piece of home maintenance, but it is nonetheless extremely important!

While it is ideal to have your gutters cleaned once a season, it is especially important to do so prior to spring. Why? During the fall months dead leaves fall from trees and accumulate in your gutters. There, if not cleaned out, they become frozen over by winter precipitation, which serves to compact the leaves in your gutters. During the spring thaw, the leaves decompose rapidly leaving a thick organic sludge that serves as a mini hoover dam in your gutters. Of course your gutters were never designed to take this weight so when the “April Showers” arrive, the water weight plus the organic sludge can make gutter systems fail. Often times gutters will start to pull off the fascia board, sag, and rust out the bottom. This means expensive repairs!
