When fall gets here, most people think of the typical things to do: rake the leaves, decorate, and maybe visit a pumpkin patch. However, Most families forget one important thing: cleaning their gutters.
Though they are up high, they should not be an “out of sight, out of mind,” chore. Though it takes extra effort, you should haul out the ladder and clean out your gutters each year- preferably twice a year.
In case you need convincing, below is a major reason you should clean your gutters.
Truly, the main importance of cleaning your gutters is preventing damage.
Gutters can get clogged with many things, which is a recipe for disaster-
especially in the fall when leaves begin piling up. Not only do they retain water and become heavy, but leaves make perfect homes for insects, rodents, and birds.
The gutter’s purpose is to manage water away from your roof safely. When they are clogged, they cannot do so, resulting in water damage in three forms.
- The weight of the water begins to damage the gutters.
- The weight of the water begins to damage your roof.
- The weight of the water begins to damage begins to damage your foundation and basement.
