1. Prevent Water Damage Inside your Home
If you ever had to deal with water damage inside your home, you know how expensive it is and what a hassle it can be. When your gutters aren’t properly cleaned, the debris in your gutters will build up and cause water to overflow into your home. If this is not detected, it could cause mold to build up inside your walls, attic, or basement. Don’t be a victim to water damage and have your gutters well maintained.
2. Prevent Damage to the Exterior of your Home
Many problems can arise to the outside of your home from not cleaning your gutters. Water overflow can cause: roof damage, fascia & siding damage, gutter & bracket damage, and worst of all damage to your foundation. The tannins in the leaves will actually stain your home’s siding. Any external wood will rot from standing water. The weight of buildup in gutters will cause your gutter to detach from your home or bend to cause water pouring over the side of your home. Your foundation could crack from pooled up water that freezes due to poor drainage next to your home. Prevent future problems by staying on top of your home maintenance.
3. Save Money
All of the above-mentioned issues are extremely expensive in comparison to the amount you spend hiring a professional to clean your gutters. Spending a couple of hundred dollars a year could save you thousand in the long run. But, saving a couple of hundred dollars cleaning your gutters yourself could cost you more than you save. The added costs of large ladders, hoses, and safety equipment aren’t the only costs associated with doing it yourself. You must also think about the safety and lack of experience with problems you might NOT discover. Imagine this, you are cleaning the gutters and you fail to notice a broken bracket. You have clean gutters, but the water damage still occurs and you’re confused as to why. Professionals see these issues on a regular basis and sometime just fix them on the spot without increasing the cost of gutter cleaning. So, spend a little save a lot!
4. Safety First
