During the year, typically around the spring, but more importantly around the fall, leaves and other debris begins to fill up gutters. A small amount will not cause long term problems, but continued and consistent build up will. So why should I take the time to clean my gutters, and exactly how does gutter cleaning work?
How Does Gutter Cleaning work?
The long term build up of this junk is highly destructive and can lead to long term issues with your house. These include:
- Foundational damage: The buildup in your gutters often leads to overflow. In combination with the location of your gutters, this can lead to irreversible erosion.
- Wall or ceiling Damage: Without the proper flow of water, the tiny seams in the structure between the gutter and roof can allow for moisture and condensation to build up over time, leading to leaky roofs and water stained walls.
- Broken gutters: It is much cheaper to take the time to clean your gutters, in comparison to installing brand new gutters.
- Insect problems: Pooling of water from clogged gutters potentially creates breeding grounds for mosquitos and other pestilent insects
So now that the dangers of ignoring clearing gutters has been addressed, what exactly should you do to clear everything away?
