How Often Should I Clean My Gutters?
It’s ideal to clean your gutters twice per year: once in late spring/early summer, after all the seed pods and blossoms have fallen, and again in late fall/early winter, after most of the leaves have fallen.
How Do I Know If My Gutters Need To Be Cleaned?
If you have water in your basement or see water dripping from your gutters when it’s not raining (or when it hasn’t rained anytime recently), there’s a good chance that your gutters are crying out to be cleaned. You should also go ahead and call us for a cleaning if you see water overflowing from the top of your gutters or notice water damage along the side of your house.
What’s The Purpose Of Gutters?
Gutters are designed to safely carry rainwater away from your roof, the sides of your house, and the foundation of your home, as a means of flood and foundation problem prevention. Gutters also prevent large icicles, which will damage your shingles, from forming at the edge of your roofline.
Why Should I Have My Gutters Cleaned?
There are lots of reasons why it’s important to keep your gutters empty of leaves and debris—the main reason being to protect your home from water damage, mold, and all kinds of costly, inconvenient repairs. Clean gutters help keep rainwater out of your home and away from the foundation. They should drain water three to five feet away from the foundation, as well as away from sidewalks and driveways, where water might freeze and create dangerous conditions. It’s also important to keep water away from the woodwork around your roof, as fascia boards and rafters can rapidly begin to rot. In addition, the sides of your home will show wear rapidly if you allow excess water to drip down their surface. If you’re at all concerned about moisture in your basement, you’ll definitely want to keep your gutters clean.
