Routine gutter cleaning is one of the quickest and most cost-effective ways to prevent avoidable issues with your home. Generally, it’s recommended to clean your gutters twice a year, but if you live in an area heavily surrounded by trees, you may need to increase this to three or four times a year.
It’s important to have your gutters professionally cleaned before winter and again in spring or summer. If you fail to clean your gutters before the weather turns cold, all the water, leaves, and debris in your gutters will freeze and that water from the melted snow will have nowhere to go.
Routine gutter cleaning can prevent several costly issues with your home. Cleaning your gutters regularly will help:
Prevent water damage due to blocked gutters and downspouts. When your gutters are clogged with leaves and other debris, water cannot drain properly, which could lead to several issues, both inside and outside your home.
Prevent roof damage due to backed-up water with nowhere to go. This can lead to rotted shingles and additional water damage.
Keep gutters cleared of rodents and birds looking for a place to nest. In addition, gutters clogged with debris attract insects, increasing the chances of them making their way into your home.
Protect your foundation. If water cannot flow away from your home, it might set around the foundation of your house, increasing the chance of issues to your foundation as water freezes and expands during cold, Wisconsin winters.
Save you money in the long run. Successful home ownership comes with regular maintenance and upkeep to avoid preventable issues.
In addition, debris left inside gutters for too long can decompose and rot, causing even more problems for your home.
