Your gutters are subject to dirt build-up when left exposed. Without any material to block blown-away debris, the system is prone to clogging, which can prevent proper water flow. You have to keep your gutters clean. This way you won’t have to deal with numerous issues concerning the accumulation of debris in this area. In this blog post, learn the dangers that come with clogged gutters.

Dangers Of Debris Accumulation

Water Stagnation

When leaves, twigs and other debris block the opening of your gutters, water won’t flow properly. The rain that hits your roof will remain in the system, which will eventually spill over the sides. Once that happens, the soil near your home’s foundation becomes saturated, causing excessive stress to the structure. Additionally, decaying materials in your gutter can affect the health of your roof.

Physical Damage

Depending on the type of gutter, the system can only carry a particular volume of water. That means the extra weight of leaves and pine needles can cause the system to sag. Additionally, rainwater spilling over the sides of your gutter can damage the fascia board, siding and other woodwork.
