If you have rain gutters, then you probably know how important they are to keep clean to ensure they don’t clog up and cause damage.
Gutters are part of your roofing system and they require regular maintenance to keep your home looking nice—and to help prevent damage from the elements. By directing rainwater away from the perimeter of your home, gutters are the first line of defense against water seeping into your house. So if your gutters are clogged with debris or not in operative shape, they will not function properly, potentially resulting in water damage to your home.
What Needs To Be Done?
Your gutters need to be cleaned out on a regular basis (typically twice a year)
Why Do It?
Water Damage: Clogged gutters can cause all kinds of issues with your home. Water damage is caused when clogged gutters cause water to collect around your foundation and, as a result, seep into your home.
Loosened Gutters: The Association for Homeowners Across America says that the weight of water, twigs and other debris can loosen gutters and cause them to pull away from their attachments.
Vermin: Clogged gutters can become an inviting home to carpenter ants, mosquitoes and even rodents. And, if these pests are living in your gutters, there’s a chance they’ll make their way into your home.
