Importance of Professional Eavestrough Cleaning
When your gutters get clogged, they are unable to move water towards the downspout and away from your home. Not only will you be left with soggy grass all around your property, this moisture will seep into the ground and compromise the foundation of your home, causing cracks, leaks and weakness.
Additionally, debris in gutters can serve as a welcome sign for animals and insects to build nests. Weight from these nests and creatures can put strain on your gutters causing sagging. Also, you could have an excess of unpleasant critters running and flying around your yard.
How Often do you Need Eavestrough Cleaning?
Frequency: Generally, two to four times per year is adequate for most homes, with twice a year being most typical. However, certain factors like an abundance of trees near your home may make this necessary more often. Pine trees can be even bigger contributing factors to clogs than broad leaf trees as well, so if your backyard looks like a Christmas tree lot, you may need to clean more often.
When: Eavestrough cleaning is best done in early spring and early fall. In spring, you’re likely to have an excess of leaves that have blown in during the winter. Cleaning at this point prepares your gutters for spring and summer rains. Similarly, fall cleaning gets your gutters ready for the cold weather. Winter is typically not an option for cleaning due to freezing temperatures, so schedule your cleaning early!
