Why Gutter Cleaning is Important
Choosing not to clean out your gutters every fall is a mistake that can create hassles for you and your family down the road. It is extremely important to make sure all of the leaves, debris, and build-up in your gutters are cleaned out each fall. Here are some reasons why fall gutter cleaning is important:
- Leaves pile up in your gutters. Although fall is a beautiful sight, with the leaves changing colors and falling off of trees, it’s not great for your gutters. Once you get heavy rainfall, the rain cannot drain out properly. This causes your gutters to overflow and the water could potentially damage your walls, siding, basement, and even your foundation. Cleaning out these leaves can avoid these serious gutter issues.
- You need healthy gutters. Gutters are not cheap to replace, so you’re better off keeping up with your gutter maintenance to save you money in the long run. Some people, depending on their location, may only need to clean out the gutters once a year, while others have to clean them out more often depending on how many trees are near their home.
- Winter is coming. The risk of clogged gutters does not stop after the fall. If you do not clean them out before winter, all the debris and water can freeze when the temperature drops drastically. When the water freezes, any of the water from the melting snow has nowhere to go, causing water damage to seep through your roof.
If you want to make sure that your gutters last as long as possible, make sure you are keeping up with the cleaning schedule. Fall is the perfect time to clear everything out!
