There’s an almost endless list of consequences of a poorly maintained gutter system. Two of the biggest ones will always be on your health and on your budget. Experts recommend seasonal gutter cleaning to help keep your drainage system in good shape. However, this often leaves homeowners with two difficult choices: pay a fortune for frequent maintenance or risk problems getting worse on both your home and your family’s health.

Don’t get stuck between a rock and a hard place when it comes to your gutters. Our specialists at Carolina Gutter Helmet® have found a way to reconcile these two separate problems with one clever solution.

Health Risks

When your gutters are clogged, you might as well have a moat of stagnant water surrounding your roof. This water is a potential breeding ground for mosquitoes as well as all the diseases that they carry. Additionally, the increased moisture levels encourage the growth and spread of mold within your roofing assembly and even inside your walls. While mold is generally more an aesthetic problem, some species could be extremely dangerous.

Structural Problems

Aside from the obvious health risks that clogged gutters carry, it could also cause all sorts of damage to many different parts of your home. If water penetrates your attic, it could warp or, worse, rot the wooden rafters and support beams that hold your roof up. Improper flow control could also cause rainwater to seep into the ground surrounding your foundations, causing massive damage to your overall structure. And, as if all that is not bad enough, water can also stain your shingles, fascia and even your siding.
