When people think about the important parts of their homes, they rarely think of their gutters. They’re just so small and unassuming compared to the rest of your home. Isn’t your roof more important? Or even your foundation? If you don’t set a regular gutter cleaning schedule, major damage can be done to both your roof and foundation.
Why Gutter Cleaning Matters
Your gutters play a large part in protecting your home, even if you don’t realize it. When your gutters are clogged, it leads to a whole host of problems.
- Foundation Damage: When there isn’t any proper runoff, stagnating water can cause serious damage to the foundation of your home.
- Insect Infestation: Stagnating water, in the gutters and around the foundation, can lead to irritating mosquito infestation. Not only that, but any damp wood can lead to termite infestations as well.
- Roof/Siding Damage: When gutter cleaning isn’t done with regularity, it can weigh down your gutter, which can lead to your gutter pulling away from the wall. It can do damage to your roof as well.
- Mold: Mold, no matter where it is in your home, can be a dangerous problem. It might start in your clogged gutter, but it can make its way into your home.
Ideally, you should clean your gutters twice a year. Once in early spring, to remove any debris left over from winter, and again in late fall, after the majority of the leaves have fallen. This is the perfect time to check the quality of your gutters and to fix any damages that have occurred since the last gutter cleaning.
