HOW OFTEN SHOULD GUTTERS BE CLEANED?
We recommend having your gutters cleaned at least twice each year, once in March or April and again in October or November.
WHY IS GUTTER CLEANING SO IMPORTANT?
Gutter pans and downspouts will collect rainwater from the roof and direct it away from the home’s foundation. Why is that so important? There are many reasons that a responsible homeowner would want to clean and maintain their gutter system properly.
First, from a cosmetic aspect, water that overflows the gutter pan will eventually cause staining – often referred to as tiger striping. Any staining makes your house look filthy and dirty.
Additionally, any standing water that doesn’t drain will become quite odorous and attract bugs, like mosquitoes, leading to other health concerns. Remember, mosquitoes often carry and transmit diseases to both humans and animals.
Next, when a downspout is clogged, you’ll begin to see water damage to the soffit. Any material damaged by water results in wood rot and requires replacement.
Finally, if your home’s water routes improperly, the soil around your foundation becomes too wet. When this happens, the ground can swell and expand, pushing your foundation upward, which could cause your walls, floors, or ceiling to crack.
Now you know why it’s so important to keep all gutters and downspouts clear of debris.
WHY AREN'T GUTTERS PROPERLY MAINTAINED?
We’ve found there are several reasons why a homeowner may not properly maintain their gutters.
- The gutters are out-of-sight and out-of-mind
- Lack of tools; not capable of or comfortable working on ladders
- A concern that gutter cleaning isn’t affordable
- Unaware of the potential damage that can occur
