Clogged Gutters Can Pose Real Dangers to Homeowners

Clogged Gutters Can Pose Real Dangers to Homeowners

September 26, 2014

Just like every other home improvement job, gutters may also create problems if they are not properly maintained. This may lead to other more dangerous situations. It doesn’t matter where your home is located. Clogged gutters can lead to fire hazards, ice dams, and nesting critters. Water backflow can affect your roof, ceiling, basement, or landscaping.

If you try to clean your gutter in Albany NY, there is the risk of falling off a ladder, which surprisingly is not a rare occurrence. According to the Centers for Disease Control:

Falls remain a leading cause of unintentional injury mortality nationwide, and 43% of fatal falls in the last decade have involved a ladder. Among workers, approximately 20% of fall injuries involve ladders. Among construction workers, an estimated 81% of fall injuries treated in U.S. emergency departments involve a ladder.

Analysis of data from three surveillance systems showed that in 2011, work-related ladder fall injuries resulted in 113 fatalities, an estimated 15,460 nonfatal injuries that involved ≥1 days away from work, and an estimated 34,000 nonfatal injuries treated in emergency departments

One way to avoid gutters from clogging is to install gutter protection. This will prevent debris from obstructing water flow and will eliminate the risk of other problems. Just make sure to hire experts in gutter installation in Albany NY like us at Huff ’N Puff.
