Maintaining your home’s gutter system is a vital part to its overall health and since it’s out of sight, it’s usually out of the average homeowner’s mind. Rain gutters and downspouts are designed to catch and divert rainwater away from your homes foundation. Every year, thousands of people struggle with storm water intruding into their homes costing thousands and thousands of dollars worth of damage along with emergency extraction and restoration procedures.
Reasons to keep your gutters clean:
All of this can simply be avoided by ensuring that your home’s gutter system is functioning properly!
- -Full gutters & downspouts will cause rainwater to flow over and over saturate areas not meant for large amounts of water
- -Full gutters can cause ice damming in the winter (water under your shingles that freezes and causes extensive damage).
- -Full gutters can smell bad and harbor a lot of mold/fungus as well as invite insects and birds.
