Why Gutter Cleaning is Important
Keeping the gutters clean and free of debris can help protect your home and in many cases lawn as well. Impacted down spots can be expensive to replace. As well as doing damage to your home and causing erosion in the lawn.
We often forget about our guttering until it is raining, and no one wants to be out on a ladder cleaning them then. Even if they are overflowing and causing damage or just being a nuisance.
Gutter Cleaning Prevents Home Damage
Unfortunately, gutters don’t just funnel water away from doorways and windows they also transport dirt, leaves, and other debris that accumulate on our roofs. This can damage the gutter downspouts if they are not cleaned regularly. Along with siding and facia. In some cases, the gutters can even be torn from the house due to the excess weight.
It is important to keep guttering clean so they don’t overflow and cause home damage. Clogs that come free on their own can also cause problems if they freed debris diverts the water toward the home foundation. This can lead to flooded crawl spaces and potentially cause foundation cracks.
Gutters are one of a building’s first lines of erosion control defense.
Don’t forget to ask about power washing siding, sidewalks, and outdoor sitting areas as well.
