No sane homeowner enjoys the job of gutter cleaning. It’s a lot of work. It can be dangerous. And you can’t stand back afterward and admire the results from below, so the payoff may not seem worth it. The truth is that gutter cleaning is very important for protecting your home. When you don’t keep your gutters clean, you’re flirting with structural damage. It’s only a matter of time before trouble shows up.
Why gutter cleaning is so important
Gutters are the first line of defense in protecting a home’s or building’s foundation. Gutters are meant to carry rainwater to downspouts that are strategically positioned around the structure. If your gutters are full of leaves and other debris, the water doesn’t have a clear pathway to a downspout. The only way out is to flow over the top of your gutters. It doesn’t take a massive storm to create a lot of backed-up water. The result can be significant water damage to your siding, soffits, foundation, interior walls and floors—nothing to scoff at. When you look at the costs of regular gutter cleanings compared with the costs of water-damage repairs, it’s clear that an ounce of prevention is truly worth a pound of cure.
