An efficient gutter system is essential in protecting your home from water damage. When your gutters are clogged, water can overflow to your roofing system and siding, causing damage. This is why it’s important to regularly clean your gutters. However, like roof repairs, gutter cleaning is best handled by a professional.
Here’s what you need to know before having your gutters professionally cleaned.
Have Your Gutters Cleaned at Least Twice a Year
You should have your gutters professionally cleaned twice a year, ideally during spring and fall. Consider having your gutter system cleaned quarterly if your home is surrounded by oak and pine trees. Doing so will prevent water from overflowing to your foundation and prevent pests from getting attracted to your home. It will prevent mold and mildew growth. Regular cleaning can also make your gutters last longer.
Do Your Research Before Hiring a Company
Only hire a reputable contractor for your roofing and gutter systems. Always do your research before hiring anyone to work on your home. The more you know, the more you can avoid things that can harm your house. Being well-informed can also give you an idea if a company is trying to take advantage of you.
Invest in a Gutter Protection System
A gutter protection system can dramatically reduce the need for cleaning your gutters. It will keep leaves and debris out of your gutters to prevent clogging. A clog-free gutter system is more likely to handle heavy downpours. Even with a gutter protection system, you should still have your gutters inspected every year.
