How Clean Are Your Gutters?

clean-gutters-4Until they notice a problem, many homeowners don’t get their gutters cleaned until there is a noticeable issue. Sadly, that is kind of like waiting to reduce your cholesterol until after you have had a heart attack.

Gutters often go overlooked – with so many other things to address, and who likes to climb up ladders unless you have to anyway?  However, ensuring gutters are properly maintained is an integral part of home maintenance.

 

By the time a problem is apparent, there can be so much rubbish and debris clogging the gutters that it can literally start hanging off the roof, further sabotaging efforts to ensure water drainage flows away from your home.  Clogged gutters can result in damage to fascia, drainpipes, roofing, or even create water leaks inside your home.  And this is before the impact of water damage on the foundations of your home – which should be avoided at all costs.

There are many benefits to regular gutter cleaning:clean-gutters-5
