Gutters Cleaning are an integral piece of your home’s well-being. They serve to control the flow of rainwater to protect your roof, walls, foundation and landscape. Gutters Cleaning can save you hundreds of Dollars and can extend the Life of your gutters.
A gutter clogged with leaves, sticks and other debris can cause a leaky roof or water damage to the interior or exterior of your home.
Most homeowners don’t spend a lot of time thinking about Gutters Cleaning, but most importantly understanding their importance may prevent costly home repair bills in the future.
Gutters funnel water off of the roof and away from your home, which protects your siding, windows, doors and foundation from water damage. While that sounds important, many homeowners don’t realize how much damage can occur when their gutters are clogged, leaking, or broken. When gutters aren’t functioning properly, rainwater runs off the roof of the house and collects on the ground near the foundation. Heavy rains can result in standing pools of water, which can cause a multitude of problems.
If the list sounds somewhat dramatic, remember that you don’t have to live in an area that experiences extreme weather conditions to suffer the effects of clogged or damaged gutters. Consider this startling fact: experts estimate that one inch of rain on an average sized house roof creates about 500 gallons of rainwater runoff. Now think back to the last rainfall in your area. One inch of rain doesn’t seem like much — imagine the volume of water hitting your roof in a heavy rainstorm! I bet you are thinking about your gutters now! No need to panic and rush out to buy a brand new expensive gutter system. A simple maintenance routine will keep your gutters working properly and avoid the problems outlined above.
Gutters should be cleaned twice a year, in early spring and late fall. Therefore, have your gutters checked to be sure they aren’t pulling away from the house. If they are, talk to a gutter installation professional about changing the spikes holding the gutters to screws. Screws do a much better job of holding the gutters in place.
If you are cleaning the gutters yourself, make sure to check for rusted spots, dents and holes, broken gutter hangers, and disconnected joints. Repair or replace any problem areas.
