When things are described as out of sight, out of mind is that a good or bad thing? The answer to this question is that it depends on what you are talking about. Sometimes it is nice to move something out of your sight and stop thinking about it. On certain issues this philosophy does not do any damage. Other times when we simply quit worrying about things because we cannot see them severe damage can be done. As you think about your house this philosophy frequently is not the right answer. Just because you cannot see something does not mean it is not causing a problem in your home. Your rain gutters are one of these areas. Most homeowners do not think about their rain gutters very often. You cannot see what is inside of them without putting some effort into it. If you crawl up to see what is in your rain gutters you may be appalled what is in there. Cleaning your rain gutters out on a regular basis is an important part of your home maintenance. Today Big Moose Pressure Cleaning wants to talk about some of the reasons that cleaning your rain gutters is so important.
What Happens if You Don’t Have Gutters?
Before we talk about why it is necessary to keep your rain gutters clear let’s talk about why you need gutters on your home. Rain gutters help control the flow of rainwater to protect your roof, walls, foundation, and landscape. Without these rain gutters whenever it rained your home could potentially have issues because the rain would not be directed to the best place for minimal damage.
Clogged Gutter Problems
One reason that it is so important to clean out your rain gutters is that you are able to clean out any debris that has started to pile up in your rain gutters. Debris naturally piles up in your rain gutters over time. Leaves fall off of trees and into your rain gutters. Wind blows garbage around and into your rain gutters. Rain makes the debris become dense and then more debris is able to pile up in the rain gutter. All of the debris in the gutter makes it impossible for the rain gutter to function as it intended to.
How Often Should You Clean Gutters?
Once people understand why cleaning your rain gutters is so important they frequently ask how often it needs to be done. This depends on how many trees you have on your property. The more trees that are on your property the more frequently you will need to clean your rain gutters. AA Top to Bottom Exterior Cleaning & Home Repairs recommends that you clean them out every spring and fall.
