Homeowners in Seattle and the surrounding areas see a lot of weather throughout the year, and it can certainly take a toll on the exteriors of our homes. Keeping your home looking nice throughout the year requires a lot of maintenance, but more important than curb appeal is ensuring all aspects of your homework as best as they should, such as your gutters.
The Importance of Gutter Cleaning
Gutters work to divert water safely away from your home and its foundation. But they can easily become clogged with dirt and debris, and that can cause a wide range of problems. Water that overflows your gutters instead of traveling smoothly through the gutter system and out the downspout can cause leaks in your roof or erode the landscaping around your foundation.
Debris that is left untreated will build up and become the perfect place for insects and animals to make nests. And in the winter, water that remains in your gutter due to blockage can freeze, damaging your gutters, and leading to costly repairs.
For all these reasons and more, it’s important to have a professional gutter cleaning service at least once a year, and more often depending on the weather or if you live in a highly wooded area. Proper gutter cleaning takes skill and experience — it’s just too dangerous to do yourself without the right knowledge and equipment.
