Gutters play an integral role in your home’s water management system. They catch rainwater from your roof and direct it to appropriate areas away from your home. Due to their open nature, however, they can be vulnerable to leaves, dirt, and other debris. These contaminants can create gutter clogs and cause your system to overflow.
Fortunately, you can do many things to prevent debris from accumulating in your system. Huff ‘N Puff, your trusted local provider of seamless and heated gutters, explains what you need to know about gutter protection.
Ways to Keep Your Gutters Clean
Gutters that are full of fallen leaves, sticks, and twigs can cause a leaky roof. Furthermore, they can trigger water damage on both your interior and exterior. Clogged gutters can also serve as a nesting ground for insects and mold, which can put people’s health at risk. To prevent these from happening, you need to keep your gutter system healthy.
Huff ‘N Puff recommends having seamless gutters maintained at least twice a year, preferably in the spring and fall. During these seasons, plenty of fallen leaves can go everywhere, including your gutter systems. Originally, you had two options for gutter cleaning: do the task yourself or hire an expert contractor.
The problem is that these options have their drawbacks. According to the Consumer Products Safety Commission, almost 250,000 Americans were sent to hospital emergency rooms in the previous years due to falls from ladders. Hiring a contractor to clean your gutters might just save you from some unexpected medical bills.
