There are plenty of gutter myths circulating around the internet, luring first-time homeowners into developing unhealthy gutter maintenance habits. That’s why MR. FIX-IT™ Virginia, installer of quality gutter protection products, compiled top gutter myths and the truth behind them.

Annual Cleaning Is Enough

Homeowners shouldn’t only clean their gutters once a year. Your gutters should be routinely cleaned and maintained every month at least, especially if you live in a storm-prone area. Unless, of course, you want to face major issues later on or schedule a roof replacement earlier than necessary.

Cleaning Means Just Debris Removal

To have a healthy gutter system, maintenance is the name of the game. Keeping it gunk-free is great, but that’s not enough. You should schedule an inspection with a professional, which might involve flushing your downspouts and replacing loose screws. You could save yourself the time and effort by getting quality gutter guards by Gutter Helmet®, the leading gutter protection system.

Gutter Cleaning Could Be Done By Anybody

It may seem easy to climb on a ladder and begin removing the piles of stuck leaves and debris inside your gutters, but it’s not a job meant for one person. For safety purposes, someone has to hold your ladder, assist with cleaning and more. You should have a helper or enlist the services of a gutter expert to do the work for you.

You Don’t Have to Inspect Your Gutters Before a Storm

When a storm approaches, you know that a large volume of water is heading your way. You should guarantee your gutters are up for the job. With regular inspection, you could feel at ease during a storm because your gutters are fully equipped to handle the storm, and you won’t have to face any major damage after it passes.
