As fall appears and the leaves start to fall, it’s a clear sign to consider gutter cleaning services. This gutter service will allow your gutters to still function properly and prevent common leaks from occurring.
When Should you Clean your Gutters?
The best time to clean the gutters is the second they appear to be clogged or not functioning to full potential. Otherwise, the best time to clean the gutters are in late November and early December as the leaves are usually done falling. In the spring, it is best to clean the gutters in May after the full budding season is completed.
If your home has a lot of tree cover, you might consider getting gutter cleaning services more than two times a year. This often is necessary when pine trees and thick cover are over your home.
Why Clean Your Gutters?
Gutters play a crucial role in directing rainwater away from your home, preventing water damage to your roof, walls, and foundation. However, they can easily become clogged with leaves, debris, and even bird nests during the summer months. As fall approaches, leaves start to drop, posing a significant threat to your gutters’ functionality.
Leaving your gutters filled with debris can lead to a host of problems:
- Water Overflow: Clogged gutters can’t effectively channel rainwater away. This may result in water overflowing, damaging your home’s siding, foundation, and landscaping.
- Roof Damage: Blocked gutters can cause water to pool on your roof, leading to rot and deterioration of roofing materials, including shingles and fascia. This will require further roof repairs.
- Basement Flooding: When water isn’t properly diverted away from your home, it can seep into your basement, leading to costly flooding and damage.
What are Gutter Cleaning Services
There are varying levels of gutter cleaning services. These levels include:
- Blowing out the gutters. This is the most common way to clear the gutters and downspouts. When done with care, this is the most functional method to clearing the gutters of debris.
- Flushing the downspouts. Using a hose to flush the downspouts and gutters is a surefire way to clear the gutter system. This method requires a bit more time and a hose to clear the gutters, but is popular among consumers.
- Hand scooping the gutters. Hand scooping gutters is the best way to ensure debris does not get on your home or surrounding areas. Hand scooping requires extensive time and is more expensive than the other options, but often produces the cleanest result.
