Rain and Gutters and Downspouts…Oh my!

As the weather constantly changes, it becomes much more difficult to keep track of the tasks that need to be done. There are so many components that play a vital role in your homes’ upkeep, you tend to forget to clean your gutters and downspouts. Here are a few reasons you should continue to use a gutter cleaning service to keep your home in great shape!

Gutters and Downspouts Are Fundamental

Gutters and downspouts are an asset to your home. Not only do they provide a clean and beautiful looking home, but essentially maintain rain water flowing throughout to protect your roof, walls and foundation from internal and external damage. You should continue to get a gutter cleaning service to maintain your rain gutters and downspouts in excellent shape for the safety of your home. 

99 Problems Caused by Clogged Rain Gutters   

If you do not attempt to get a gutter cleaning service at least twice a year, then your rain gutters can become a strenuous issue. The amount of times that you should have your gutters and downspouts cleaned depends on the season and amount of leaves that fall in your area. Neglecting this issue, will cause a chain of unnecessary and expensive problems that will hurt your home and wallet in the long run.

Erosion in Your Gutters 

When you don’t pay enough attention to your rain gutters, this can easily cause erosion to your home’s surroundings. Most homes are built on a slight slope to direct water off your roof, but if you possess cluttered gutters and downspouts then this will develop into massive erosion in your home. Eventually, this can cause uneven floorboards and cracked walls. Erosion can be prevented with a complete gutter cleaning service.

Protect Your Basement and Your Roof 

Oh no, your home is flooding! This can potentially be caused by the debris that has accumulated over time in your gutters. When rain water starts to mix with soil due to clogged gutters and downspouts, it begins to develop a heavy consistency. This will create more damage to your home than you can imagine. The mixture produces a pressure that your foundation and roof may not be able to handle. When you don’t receive your usual gutter cleaning service, this issue will generate tiny cracks in your walls, which will allow unwanted water to enter your home. Although it may not be excessive, it will eventually prompt mold and health hazards.

Overflowing Rain Gutters Cause Stained Sidings 

Don’t lose your home’s curb appeal and get a gutter cleaning service. Permitting your gutters and downspouts to overflow with debris such as leaves, dirt and other items causes your home’s siding to become stained. The stain can become another subset of problems such as loss of appeal, rotting, pest infestations and even issues with your home’s structure. Neglecting your rain gutters can ultimately create more conflicts than solutions.
