11 Reasons Why Gutter Cleaning Matters

You are currently viewing 11 Reasons Why Gutter Cleaning Matters

Why is gutter cleaning so important? Check out the reasons below! 

1. Protect the Foundation

Gutter cleanings prevent clogs that cause water to overflow against the foundation and create cracks. 

2. Keep Pests Away

Standing water and gutters filled with leaves provide a home for insects, birds, and rodents. Cleaning it prevents pest infestation.

3. Stop Ice Dams

Clogged gutters fill with water and freeze during the winter. This creates a dam that causes water to pool, initiating lasting roof damage.

4. Maintain Soffits and Fascia

Soffits and fascia are susceptible to rot and corrosion under wet conditions caused by a clogged gutter system.

5. Reduce the Risk of Basement Flooding

Basement flooding can occur when water overflows the gutters instead of reaching the downspout.

6. Extend the Gutter’s Lifespan

Well-maintained gutters last year’s longer, saving time and money on replacements.

7. Protect the Roof from Mold

Clogged gutters can let water seep into your roof, causing water damage and mold.

8. Avoiding Structural Damage

Water that infiltrates the roof also infiltrates the home’s structure, causing rot.

9. Protecting Garden Beds

You don’t want your beautiful garden beds to wash out due to overflowing gutters.

10. You Can Leave It to the Professionals

Concerned about the hassle or danger of cleaning gutters yourself? You can always leave it to the professionals.

11. Saving More in the Long Run

Even if you go with professional gutter cleaning services, you can save on the gutter and roof repairs you’ll now be able to avoid.
