It’s a safe bet that at least once in your lifetime someone has told you to get your mind out of the gutter. Relax, we’re not going to do that. In fact, we actually want your mind to be in the gutter – the gutters on your home, that is.

June is one of the most important months for gutter cleanings. With all the debris that’s been accumulating over the winter, having your gutters cleaned and your system inspected on a regular schedule throughout the year should be at the top of your home maintenance to-do list.

Why Are Gutter Cleanings So Important?
You’re probably wondering why it’s so important to have your gutters cleaned.  After all, they’re just an accessory to your roof, right? Wrong. Here are just a few examples of what can happen when you leave your gutters unchecked:

1. Cracked foundations and leaky basements. When there is no more room for collected water in your clogged gutters, guess where it goes? That’s right, gravity takes over and your home could be seriously damaged

2. When wet debris piles up above the shingle line, moisture can become trapped inside and can do extensive harm

3. Moist debris attracts insects and rodents. It’s just what you don’t want, a mosquito breeding farm in your gutters. Insects and small animals are attracted to environments such as this and can make your life very unpleasant.

Your gutters are an integral part of your home. Unfortunately, they’re often overlooked. Making sure they’re working will help you avoid potentially costly home repairs down the road.

Why You Need a Professional
Gutter cleaning’s no walk in the park. In fact, it can be downright dangerous.  According to the World Health Organization, ladder falls result in more than 164,000 emergency room visits and more than 300 deaths a year.  Scarier still, the amount of ladder-related injuries has increased by over 50% in the last 10 years.
