Your gutter system serves a vital role in the distribution of rain water and melting snow. When gutters become clogged with debris, they are unable to function properly. Routine cleaning of your gutters is vital to their proper function and the protection of your roof, home and property. Without regular cleaning, your gutters are likely to become clogged, damaged or visually unappealing.
Cleaning Is Vital to Proper Drainage
To drain rain water and melting snow properly, your gutters must remain free of debris such as leaves, branches and dirt. Without proper drainage, water is likely to back up in your gutters, seep under shingles and eventually make its way into your home. Clogged and overflowing gutters can cause roof leaks, siding rot, erosion, foundation seepage and basement flooding, and even increase the likelihood of pest infestations.
Regular gutter cleaning helps to maintain proper drainage and preserve your roof. Routine gutter maintenance is especially important for homeowners with heavily wooded properties or those with aging gutter systems.
Cleaning Improves Appearance
Rust, moss and dirt buildup on your gutters impacts their appearance. Cleaning and repairing gutters on a regular basis helps to improve their look and functionality—clean gutters improve the look and overall appearance of your home.
Cleaning Extends the Life of Gutters
Over time, even a small amount of debris in your gutters can lead to issues. As debris sits in your gutters, rust, mold or moss can build up on their surface. These issues can lead to cracks, holes or leaks in your gutters, seams and transitions. The longer debris sits in your gutters, the more likely these issues are to occur. Regular cleaning and prompt repairs improve drainage and helps to extend the life of your gutters.
