When it comes to our daily routine, we are used to making sure appliances are off, doors are locked, and our homes are safe, but when something is out of sight, it might also fall out of mind. Such is the case with gutters and their need to be cleaned regularly. Gutters need to be in good working order to protect the exterior of the home by properly diverting runoff from rainwater. Gutter cleaning is not a glamorous job, but it is a necessary one.
As gutters become increasingly clogged with leaves, dirt, and other debris, they become less efficient at channeling water away from the home, which increases the likelihood of mold and other water-related damage to the exterior of the home. Not only can siding be damaged by water, but foundations can be threatened as water pools up. Regular gutter cleaning ensures that gutters work as intended and provide the protection they are designed to offer. It also helps protect plants and landscaping along the sides of the home that might be damaged by excessive rainwater runoff.
