We install gutters in our homes to help direct rainwater far from our homes and their foundations. However, homeowners forget that the gutters need to be taken care of to continue performing their role.
If you don’t clean your gutters and they become clogged or broken, the rainwater overflows from the roof to your home and your home can be exposed to water damage. Here are the benefits of cleaning your gutters.
PREVENTS YOUR ROOF FROM BEING DAMAGED
When your gutter is clean and functional, water will flow through it and into the designated channels. If your gutter is dirty then rainwater will not be able to flow smoothly through it.
The water will collect in the gutter and the bottom part of the roof. When the roof shingles are exposed to a lot of water, they will get damaged.
The roof will also crack and this will make the ceiling to leak in the different parts of the house. If it gets to this point then the solution will be to repair the ceilings or floors. All these can happen simply from not cleaning your gutters.
PROTECTS YOUR BASEMENT FROM WATER DAMAGE
We keep various items such as carpets and furniture in our basements and if it gets flooded then these items can be damaged. This can happen if you have a dirty gutter which prevents water from flowing into the correct channels.
Since the rainwater will not be able to flow through the clogged gutter, it will find its way through various places such as the sides of the roof.
The water will flow to the foundation of the home and then get into your basement. Besides that, the damp environment in the basement will favor the growth of mold and mildew.
PROTECTS YOUR FOUNDATION FROM DAMAGE
When water keeps flowing or polling in the foundation of a building, that building becomes unsafe because the foundation becomes weak. Repairing the foundation costs a lot of money which you can save by cleaning your gutters.
Homes have to go through an official inspection and if your foundation is damaged then that house won’t be approved for sale. Therefore, it’s also vital to protect your foundation if you plan on selling the house later on.
SAVES YOU THE TROUBLE OF DEALING WITH PESTS
Pests can be a nuisance that we would like to avoid. You can do so by cleaning your gutters. When water is not flowing through the gutter, the gutter becomes a conducive atmosphere for insects and rodents to breed.
Therefore, you’ll have pests in the water collected in your gutters and they can invade your home too.
ADDS VALUE TO YOUR HOME
When your gutters are dirty, the outside appearance of your home will also be dirty. When gutters are not cleaned, they accumulate leaves, twigs, sand and all sorts of debris. Some of these materials can fall on to the ground on the exterior of your home.
The water will also wash away the paint from the roof and destroy the shingles. The result will be an attractive home. Regularly cleaning your home will increase its curb appeal and make it more valuable.
WILL INCREASE YOUR GUTTER’S LIFESPAN
If you take good care of something, it will serve you for a longer duration. The same applies to your gutters. The material that accumulates on a dirty gutter tends to corrode the aluminum material. Therefore, this won’t happen if you regularly clean the gutters.

Now that you have learned the importance of having clean gutters, you need to decide how to achieve that.
You can clean the gutters yourself especially if your home is a single-story because once you get on the ladder you will reach all the gutters you have. This also works if your roof is not covered by many trees.
If your home is two-story then you shouldn’t even think of cleaning the gutters yourself. You are better off hiring a professional gutter cleaning company.
This is because your house has a higher height and you could get injuries while up there cleaning the gutters in addition to the fact that you can also damage your home during the cleaning process.
You may have to pay a significant amount of cash to repair anything you may have damaged while gutter cleaning or to foot medical bills if you had been injured. What we charge for gutter cleaning is way less than these expenses.
Another way of going around it is by installing gutter guards so you won’t have to deal with constant cleaning and exposing yourself to injuries.
