The Importance of Gutter Cleaning
Leaves in Gutter
Many Massapequa Park homeowners ignore gutter cleaning, but you’d be surprised how important your gutters are for protecting your home. The gutters on your home channel water away from the base of the building, protecting your foundation from water damage. When leaves and other debris built up in your gutters, they no longer drain correctly. This can cause a wide variety of problems.
Cracked foundations. When you wait too long for gutter cleaning, excess water that isn’t draining away from your house ends up pooling near the foundation wall. This can lead to cracks, especially in the winter when water freezes and expands.
Basement leakage is another common problem that can result from clogged gutters.
Leaking roofs. Water from your gutters can back up into your house and leak through your roof, especially in the winter when snow builds up. Wood rot. Water that isn’t draining properly causes wood on your house to begin to decompose. This is a major sign that you’re in need of gutter cleaning services.
Damage to your lawn or gardens. Clogged gutters can overflow onto your garden or areas of your lawn, drowning the plants that grow there. Mosquitoes and other insects lay their eggs in pools of stagnant water, which can easily form as a result of improper drainage due to clogged gutters.
How Often Should You Clean Your Gutters?
Experts recommend that homeowners clean out their gutters at least once a year. Massapequa Park is in a temperate climate with snowy, icy winters, and it’s often a good idea to clean your gutters in the spring or fall. Those two times of year tend to produce the most gutter-clogging debris. Although some people clean their own gutters, this burdensome chore can also be left to a professional. One advantage of professional gutter cleaning services is that the pros will also clean out your downspouts. It’s also arguably safer to hire a professional. Believe it or not, going up a ladder to clean gutters can be surprisingly dangerous: just in 2009, over 240,000 people in America ended up in the emergency room because they fell off of ladders. Don’t put yourself at risk to do a chore you hate.
