Is cleaning your gutters a four season chore or something you only need to do once a year? While talking to a number of homeowners, we find that most tend to only clean out their gutters once a year, and typically in the spring. However, gutters should be cleaned out every season to prevent gutter damage or structural damage to the home. Big Moose Pressure Cleaning would like to share why it is important to clean out your gutter every season and how it benefits the home.
Healthier Gutter System
In order to keep a gutter system healthier, water needs to be able to flow off the roof and through the gutters without problems. When a clog or blockage occurs, water builds up leading to leaks, sagging gutters, or gutters that pull away from the roof. It is important that gutters stay clean and water can flow without disturbance. Preventing clogs is an all year problems and not just a single season venture. To make sure the gutter does not develop any blockages, they require seasonal cleaning.
Gutter Cleaning Prevents Roof Leaks & Damage
By keeping the gutters clean you can prevent roof damage. When it rains, water will run down the roof and into the gutters. If the gutter fills up with water due to a clog then water can pull on top of the roof allowing water to seep underneath the roofing tiles or shingles. Water damage can occur inside the attic or within the internal layer of the roofing material. Repairing water damage on a roof can be very costly and totally preventive as long as the gutters stay clean and do their job.
Damaged Gutters & Brackets
Another common problem with poorly maintained gutters is gutter damage. Gutters can begin to sag due to the water trapped inside. As they sag, the gutters can bend or the bracket can warp out of place and even break. Clogs can also cause gutters to rust faster leading to tiny holes in the gutter system. Gutters are prone to a number of different kinds of damage, most being caused by debris and clogs.
Gutter Cleaning Extends Life of Gutters
By having your gutters properly maintained with four seasonal cleanings, they will last longer. A number of gutter and roof damages can be prevented which will save you money in expensive repairs. Roofing and gutter repair or replacements can cost a homeowner thousands of dollars, compared to the cost of gutter cleaning that occurs once every three months. To prevent costly repairs, make sure to keep your gutter system clean.
