Gutters that aren’t cleaned can lead to severe damage to your home. Clogged gutters can cause water to spill onto your foundation, slowly eroding it. Water can seep into the fascia board of your roof and ruin shingles. Overflowing gutters can even be responsible for ruining landscaping. To keep your gutters well maintained, you should have them cleaned every year but how often should it actually be done?
Clean Your Gutters At Least Twice Per Year
No matter where your home is located, it is advised to have your gutters cleaned at least twice per year. This is typically done in the Spring and Fall seasons. A Spring cleaning gets your gutter system ready for the increase in rain and Fall cleanings will keep your gutters clear as more foliage begins to build up. Summer and Winter cleanings can be done, however, and may be slightly cheaper than peak-season cleanings.
Sometimes You Need To Clean More Often
While twice per year is the standard for gutter cleaning, your home may be in need of more frequent maintenance. Homes that are surrounded by mature trees may need an additional cleaning throughout the year. Certain geographical regions, especially areas with higher than average rainfalls, may also need three (or even four) gutter cleanings per year to make sure you are free from buildup.
Hire A Professional To Clean Your Gutters
Having your gutters cleaned properly one time by a professional is more effective than having multiple self-cleanings that aren’t complete. This is especially true for debris-prone homes that clog up quickly. Professional cleanings involve debris removal, unclogging, and a thorough inspection of any damage to your gutters or roof. This allows you to make small fixes instead of spending thousands on large repairs in the future.
