Fall is the perfect season to tackle our home project to-do list as the heat of summer is behind us, and the weather is still mild enough to get ourselves outdoors. Many homeowners find this to be an excellent time to have their gutters cleaned.
In addition to ensuring that proper water flows away from the roof and the foundation, there are other benefits to gutter cleaning:
Prevents Water Damage to Your Home.
No homeowner wants their home to suffer from water damage, a leading cause of structural damage. Gutters whisk water away from the roof and foundation. A clogged gutter floods your foundation, reducing the integrity of your building, and spoiling your foundation. It also causes roof leaks, damages your ceiling, walls and other parts of your structure.
Eliminates a Home for Pests That Can Damage Your Home
Leaves, twigs, branches and debris serve as a breeding ground for pests like insects, birds, and mosquitoes.
A build-up of debris in your gutter can decompose, forming matter that supports the growth of tree seedlings, fungi, and other plants. Insects living and breading in a clogged gutter can also spread deadly diseases.
Extra tree seedlings can damage your roof, making it appear unsightly. Regular gutter cleaning removes pest’s nesting areas, and it gets rid of the organic matter where plants can thrive.
Prevents Landscape Destruction
Landscaping beautifies one’s home, adding to your home’s value, improving comfort, and livability. Clogged water can damage your landscaping because water from clogged gutters can cause soil erosion, wash away perennials, destroying your plants.
Shields Your Home Against Basement Flooding
Blocked gutters overflow and spill rainwater around your basement, finding it’s way into your basement, causing flooding.
Basement flooding is a significant issue for homeowners, encouraging mold and mildew. Mold spores may trigger allergic reactions and other respiratory disorders. Furthermore, basement flooding damages your basement’s interior décor and spoils furniture, electronics, and other valuables housed in your basement.
