The importance of gutter cleaning

How often should my gutters be cleaned?

Experts recommend getting your gutters cleaned twice a year: once in the late spring or early summer after the seed pods have fallen, and once in late fall or early winter once all the leaves have fallen. Cleaning gutters twice a year ensures that there is never a chance for buildup to cause clogged gutters and prevent the flow of rain water, snow, or other debris.

If your home is fully surrounded by trees, we recommend getting your gutters cleaned more than twice a year. This is especially important during the fall. If a significant amount of leaves fall on your roof, it is especially beneficial to invest in additional gutter cleaning services.

Benefits of professional gutter cleaning

Many homeowners strongly dislike getting their gutter cleaned, but they still prefer to do it themselves. However, there are a number of benefits of getting your gutters professionally cleaned.

The danger of falling from a ladder during cleaning is a huge reason to hire professionals. According to the US Consumer Products Safety Commission, falling from ladders cause more than 240,000 Americans to get sent to the emergency room every year. Uneven ground or gardens around a home or an unstable ladder can all make this a very dangerous task.

Professional gutter cleaning also ensure all debris is completely removed from your gutters. A clean and empty gutter protects your home’s foundation, siding, and roof from water invasion. Professionals can easily spot damage with your gutters that a homeowner usually does not notice. And we have the knowledge and expertise to get your gutters safe and functional.
