Gutters are an essential part of your home and serve the purpose of protecting your exterior walls, doors, and windows from water damage. Gutters also protect the foundation of your home from water runoff that can cause erosion at the base of your home, damaging the very foundation on which your home sits, and ruining beautiful landscaping that serves for erosion control as well. Maintaining your gutters is very important, as the integrity of your gutters depends on it. The best way to maintain your gutters is with regular gutter cleaning.
Regular gutter cleaning will ensure that your gutters continue to serve their intended purpose: to protect your home’s exterior, windows, and doors from water damage. If your gutters become clogged, the water is not able to flow freely to be removed through your gutters and downspouts, and instead may pour over the sides of the gutters and run down the exterior of your home. These clogged gutters can also potentially flood the foundation of your home with water, risking damage to the structure that provides the safety and stability you rely on. Gutter cleaning also removes potential nesting material for rodents and birds that may choose to establish their home, thereby blocking your gutters and impeding water flow. Gutter cleaning will also serve to prevent potential basement flooding, avoid damage to the landscaping around your home, reduce the chance of roof leakage, and extend the lifespan of your gutters.
