Many homeowners wait to get their gutters cleaned until they notice a problem. Unfortunately, this is like waiting to lower your cholesterol until you have a heart attack.
Spring/Summer is upon us, not that you may have noticed with some of the freak weather of late. That means there are many projects around the home demanding your attention. One thing that often goes overlooked is your gutters.
Gutter cleaning is an integral part of maintaining your home. As a busy homeowner myself, I know gutter cleaning is probably at the bottom of your list of things you want to think about.
The problem is, many homeowners wait to get their gutters cleaned until they notice a problem, or so much debris has collected the gutter is tearing from the roof. Unfortunately, this is like waiting to lower your cholesterol until you have a heart attack.
Clogged gutters can wreak havoc with the natural drainage of water away from your home. This can result in damage to fascia, soffit, roofing, or even begin leaking into your home. Additionally, water damage can ruin the very foundation of your home – something you NEVER want to happen.
Some of the many benefits of gutter cleaning include:
- prevent water damage to your home
- avoid nesting areas for termites, birds, mosquitoes, and other insects
- prevent destruction of expensive landscaping
- maintain value and beauty of your home
Make sure to schedule your gutter cleaning in the spring and fall each year. Many companies even have an annual program you can sign up for so you never have to think about cleaning your gutters again, and your home will be protected for years to come.
