We recommend homeowners have their gutters cleaned six times per year on average. This may seem like a large number of gutter cleanings, but hear us out – there’s more going on with your gutters than you think!
Many people might think that gutter cleanings are a seasonal service, only necessary during seasons that bring heavy rain such as spring and summer. Your gutters get a lot of wear and tear during the fall and winter months too, with leaves actually being the biggest culprit! Gutter cleanings are something your gutters and your home benefits from year-round. In fact, making gutter cleanings part of a regular maintenance program helps ensure there won’t be a bigger mess for you to clean up down the line.
Why Your Gutters Are So Important
Your gutters are designed to collect water from the roof and carry down to the foundation of your home. It’s absolutely necessary for the gutters to be clear so they can do this task! Otherwise, the water will keep building and ultimately have to overflow the foundation of your home without anywhere else to go. This could lead to the water seeping into the basement and open your home to the risks of mold. Clogged gutters can also cause additional strain to your rooftop.
Repairing Damages Is Expensive
The repair for these types of damages can run as high as $10,000. As a homeowner, there is a choice between regular upkeep or potentially letting a bigger issue build up.
Not only do gutter cleanings help the gutter systems, but it also helps prevent further damage to the exterior and interior walls of your home. Regular gutter cleanings are vital to protect your home from water damage and having them cleaned regularly will save you thousands of dollars in possible repair costs in roof damages, exterior damage, or interior wall damage.
The Benefits of Gutter Upkeep
Regular upkeep for your gutters prevents other types of damages, including:
- Sagging gutters. The weight of leaves and other debris causing gutters to sag.
- Gutter clogs. Leaves and other debris falling, clogging the filters and ultimately leaving gutters ineffective.
- Exterior damage. Leaves that pile up during the fall creates a tinted color in the water that can cause stains anywhere the water trails through once it leaves the gutter.
