Gutter Care 101: Why Gutter Cleaning Matters
Your gutters should be cleaned at least twice a year. For homeowners in Portland and Vancouver, the spring and fall are the best times to have gutter services performed. Depending on your location, the greenery surrounding your home, and other environmental factors, you may need to have your gutters cleaned more than twice a year. It is also wise to have your gutters professionally cleaned and inspected after particularly harsh or inclement storms. If you are unsure how often you should have your gutters cleaned, we can perform an inspection of your roof to give you the best recommendation.
There are several reasons why it is imperative to pay attention to the state of your gutters year-round. Below you will find our top reasons for why your gutters should be cleaned regularly, especially if you live in the Pacific Northwest.
Top Reasons to Keep Your Gutters Clear
- Save Money in the Long Run
Most homeowners are interested in saving money, especially when it comes to repairs and maintenance tasks around their homes. With your gutters, preventative maintenance is key to avoiding costly problems. With annual gutter cleaning at least twice a year, you can count on saving money in the long run. Gutter neglect will ultimately cost you a significant amount of money. The upfront costs you will pay to have gutter cleaning services performed is minimal compared to the costs of a complete replacement or extensive repair.
- Prevent Flooding
The primary purpose of your gutters is to move water off of and away from your roof. The downspouts then carry this water away from your home’s foundation. Keeping this flow consistent and clear is imperative if you want to avoid flooding and overflow of your gutters. Flooding or overflow of any kind can lead to shingle damage, sagging gutters, and damage to the foundation of your roof.
- Avoid Damage to Your Home’s Exterior
Excess water that builds up due to gutter neglect may also result in significant damages to your home’s foundation or siding. When gutters become clogged, and water is unable to move away from your home properly, this excess water can leak down the side of your home. Clogged downspouts may cause water to pool near the bottom of your home, leading to potential damage to your home’s foundation. Water damage of any kind can lead to expensive repairs that could have been avoided in the first place.
- Prevent Mold and Algae Growth
Mold growing on your roof is not only unsightly, but can also lead to damage to your gutters, roof, and shingles. The particular type of mold, or algae, that grows on your roof is a type of bacteria that feeds on the limestone and moisture present in asphalt shingles. If an algae problem gets out of hand, you may notice that your roof has a mossy, green appearance. Regular gutter cleaning is a great way to prevent mold and algae from growing on your roof.
- Avoid Pest Problems
Small animals and insects often like to burrow in residential gutters. Rodents, birds, termites, bees, and mosquitoes will hide or make a home in your gutters due to the damp, safe environment they provide. Pests of all kinds are more likely to take up residence in your gutters if debris is collecting or building up inside of them. Keeping your gutters clean will not only help keep mold and moisture damage at bay, but it will also prevent unwanted visitors from lurking in your gutters.
