Why is gutter cleaning important?

It is so easy to let the years go by and put off proper maintenance of our homes.  If you have trees near your house, you will have full gutters on a yearly basis and most often more frequently than that.  With these torrential rains we have been having, if your gutters are full, the most common problem is that the gutters overflow and pour into the window wells which then leak into the basement.  If you have any cracks in your foundation, all that water pouring over the gutters right up at the base of the house is going to find its way in as well.  Even if you don't have any foundation issues or window wells, you don't want water pounding at the foundation of your home, turning the closest soil into a swamp.  That is never good.  Water leaking into the walls over time can cause damage and even mold problems.  The fix can become very expensive.

Keeping your gutters clean is the best way to avoid these issues.  Things happen in life, but if we take proper preparations and maintain the things we can, we can keep many inconveniences and even disasters away. Give us a call to schedule.
