Firstly, gutters mainly prevent water damage and convey water droplets from the roof to other locations where they are linked with other water bodies.
How often should you clean your gutter?
If there is a need for you to clean your gutter more than twice, you should ensure it is done. This is common among homeowners that have trees close to their houses which lead to leaves clogging in gutters. You should also inspect your gutter once in 3 months if possible depending on the foliage of the resident trees and the amount of rainfall.
Why do you need to clean your gutter?
In addition to rusting, houses that have many trees around it can be prone to fire outbreak which threatens that vicinity. Flammable debris and dry leaves can lead to fire disaster which won’t be restricted to the gutter and can easily spread resulting into a serious home fire.
What are the consequences of not cleaning your gutter?
Inadequate cleaning of your gutter attracts various pests such as mice, rats, squirrels and birds who love to tap dance on your roof.
Blocked gutters can cause cracks and holes in your buildings from which other pests like rodents and insects can gain access to your house.
Other such issues from overflowing gutters:

MOSS – A LOT of issues are cuased by moss growing on your roof.
Now not all of you will have it but some will.
You can clearly see it from ground level.
This will detatch and fall down your roof and go straight into the gutters.
Birds and weather will help speed this process.
All adding to the speedy blockage of your gutters.
You could just keep paying to have your gutters cleared OR you could get me to remove the moss.
I do not go onto the roof. Its not safe and it also has potential to crack tiles/slate.
I use a specialist profiled scraper.
When it is all clear I empty all your gutters.
I clean the mess on the ground.
Then, and most importantly I treat all your roof with a Biocide-wash.
This wash will kill off whatever I missed in the scrape and again more importantly it will continue to kill spores and keep c your roof clear for SO MUCH LONGER.
It is not cheap but in the long run it will save your roof getting a green damp blanket.
It will reduce the blockages and potential damage caused by it clogging your gutters.
