Importance of Keeping Your Gutters Clean

By July 15, 2015October 18th, 2023No Comments

Gutters are an important component of your roofing system. They redirect water away from your home, protecting your siding, exterior walls, windows, exterior doors, soffit, fascia, landscaping, and even your home’s foundation.

The Importance of Regular Gutter Cleaning

It is vital for your gutters to stay clog-free, especially when it rains. You need to be certain that rainwater can flow freely from your roof, through the gutters, to the spouts, and finally to the drains. In fact, as most roofing experts will tell you, gutter cleaning should be done at least twice a year, or as often as you can during fall when the falling leaves can get stuck in your gutters. This is true, especially if there are a number of trees close to your home. If your gutters are poorly maintained, it will definitely have serious and perhaps costly repercussions to your home.

Gutter Cleaning Safety and Health Hazards

Cleaning your own gutter is definitely not an easy task. Aside from being an unappealing chore, gutter cleaning can actually be risky. It involves climbing a ladder; a significant number of ladder-related falls are documented every year across the US. Additionally, cleaning gutters is a stressful job that can result in joint and muscle pain, cause sunstroke, or even aggravate other existing health issues. Instead of putting yourself at risk, hire a professional who has all the tools and equipment to get the job done safely and efficiently.
