When was the last time you checked your gutters? Gutter cleaning is not on the top of most people’s priority list, as they say ‘out of sight out of mind’. However gutters play a pivitol role in the structural integrity of your house, helping to protect you home and yard from the damaging and erosive effects of water.
Having clogged gutters will prevent water from draining properly and the water instead will try to find another method of draining which could result in leaking into your home and through your window and ceiling.
This is particularly important during heavy storm where large quantities of water is falling onto your roof. The gutters need to be clear and clean to help the water effectively direct and drain the water.
The build up of leaves, dirt and debris will encourage corrosion in your gutters and down pipes which will eventually end up having to be replaced, along with any repair work required to fix any water damage. This can be extremely expensive.
Having gutters and roofs that are filled with leaves and debris also poses a fire hazard. To protect your home, gutter cleaning should be completed at least twice a year in Autumn and in Spring in preparation for the increased rainfall in winter and hot, dry weather in summer.
