How Often Do You Need to Clean Your Gutter?

By February 11, 2015October 18th, 2023No Comments

Your gutter plays an important role in keeping your home safe from water damage by redirecting water away from your home and into drains. But for it to do its job effectively, you have to take care of it regularly. Cleaning the gutter twice a year, or at the most four times a year (depending on the climate and the number of trees surrounding your house), is one way of making sure that your gutter functions well. Regular inspection and maintenance are also necessary to make sure that your gutter lasts long.

So how would you know when you should clean your gutter? Gutter cleaning is usually done during fall or spring, when leaves fall from the trees, which clog up the gutter and downspouts. But, as mentioned above, if you have numerous trees around your house, your gutter needs to be cleaned at least four times a year to avoid blockage and other problems that may arise from a clogged gutter. You should also clean your gutter immediately once you see leaves, small branches, and other debris beginning to pile up. But ideally, you just have to clean your gutter as often as you can to make sure that everything is in good condition.

If you are, however, one of those who are not comfortable climbing up ladders, or if you really don’t have the time to this tedious job, you can always invest in a gutter protection system. Gutter protection systems or gutter guards are a simple-yet-effective system that prevents gutters from clogging up with leaves and other debris. If you invest in gutter covers in Milwaukee WI, for example, you won’t have to climb ladders and clean that messy gutter as often as when you don’t have a gutter cover.

Thankfully, residents can invest in the best gutter protection in Milwaukee WI—Gutter Helmet®. Every time you climb up that ladder, you run the risk of injuring yourself. With Wrightway, you can invest in high-quality gutter covers by Gutter Helmet so you won’t have to think about your gutter for a long, long time.
