Do You Keep Your Gutters Clean?
While we all have great intentions, when it comes to cleaning our rain gutters and downspouts, let’s be honest, no one really wants to do it!
Clean gutters are an important part of home’s maintenance that helps protect it from:
- Heavy build up of debris which can cause the gutters to pull away from your house and cause structural damage.
- Heavy build up makes it easier for ice dams to form, which damages your roof.
- Vegetation growing in your gutters which encourages insects to take up residence.
- Water accumulation which can cause rust and corrosion, leading to the need of replacing your gutter system.
How Often Should Your Gutters be Cleaned?
At a minimum they should be cleaned twice a year, once in the spring and once in late fall. Depending on where you live and the amount “stuff” that has fallen into them, you may need to clean them more frequently.
Hire a professional to do the job for you
Keeping your gutters clean isn’t a particularly difficult job, but most people avoid doing it themselves whenever possible, partly because it can be a dirty, slimy job and because there are some risks associated such as falling off the ladder or falling off a steep, slippery roof.
