Why is Gutter Cleaning Important?
1. Breeds Insects
If you haven’t had any gutter cleaning done in awhile, it’s very likely that you have debris accumulating inside of your gutters. The debris also helps to trap water and creates an insect haven. This type of environment is a prime breeding ground for mosquitoes, wasps and termites. All of which can find their way into your home.
2. Wood Rots
The fascia is a structural component of your roof, made of wood, that is attached to your gutters. When gutters are not cleaned annually they tend to become clogged. A clogged gutter can have inches of water sitting in them, which will rot the wood of your roof’s fascia.
3. Flooding in Basements
Gutters are used to route the water from storms away from your home. When gutter cleaning is needed, the gutters overflow and water is left to pour down the home’s siding and pool around the foundation. Homes with basements will often become flooded as a result of improper gutter maintenance.
4. Cracks Foundations
When gutter cleaning has not been done regularly your gutters become full of leaves and debris, they will not drain properly. Therefore, when a rain shower comes along the gutters will overflow and the water will spill over the edge. This will allow too much water to soak into the ground surrounding your home’s foundation. If that water then is able to freeze, “frost-heave,” it can cause cracking and major damage to the foundation of your home.
