Yes! Please, for the well-being of your house and your family, get your gutters cleaned regularly.
This doesn't meant once every three years. We're talking at least two or three times a year. That may seem like a lot of guttering cleaning, but keep in mind that the gutters on your home are very important for ensuring everyone inside stays nice and dry. Without these wonderful pieces of aluminum hanging on the side of your roof, the water from the rain could seep inside, ruining your walls, the new rug in the basement, or even your home's foundation. Does any of that sound like fun to have to replace?
It doesn't to us, either.
How does this damage to your gutters happen? Well, when leaves or other debris start to pile up and block the regular flow of water through the gutter system, which usually moves the water through its system and onto the ground. When there's a blockage in the gutter, the water looks for another place to go: inside! Not only that, but when gutters fill up with leaves, branches, and stagnant water, the weight of this mess can start to pull the gutter away from your roof. The damage to the system or the siding of your home is likely to lead to an expensive repair.
Another risk to your gutters lurks around your home, but you've probably noticed these pests before reading this article. Bugs, like mosquitoes and termites, can make a cozy home in an uncleaned gutter, giving them the perfect breeding ground for planning their invasion of your kitchen...or bedroom. Termite damage can ruin the structure of a house and nobody wants to be stung by a swarm of mosquitoes on their way out the front door. That's why making sure there's nothing nesting in your gutters by getting regular cleanings is so important to keeping your home in great shape.
