Frequently Asked Questions about Gutter Cleaning
- Why should I clean my gutters routinely?
Gutter cleaning is a vital home maintenance task that goes a long way in preserving the value of your home. Ignoring your gutters can result in a number of problems. When gutters are full of debris they become heavy and get pulled off pitch. This can cause rotted fascia boards, water damage to the sides of your home, deck and foundation damage, landscape destruction, mold growth, and even termite, mosquito, and rodent infestations. Good gutter maintenance can prevent a number of costly repairs and renovations, and keeps your home looking its best.
- How often should I clean my gutters?
Most people clean their gutters at least once a year, but many choose to have it done sometime in the Spring and again in the Fall. It all depends on the location of your home and its exposure to trees, insects, and moisture.
