Why should I have my gutters cleaned out?

🌟ROOF DAMAGE
When leaves and other debris clog up your gutters to the point that water is flooding over, you can end up having issues with rot on your roofing. This is one of the main reasons that it’s important to keep your gutters clean.

🌟FOUNDATION DAMAGE
If gutters are not cleaned and water overflows from the gutters, it will fall along the foundation of the building. … Also, if the foundation is wet and then freezes, this will cause heaving and cracks. In extreme cases, water damage can cause structural failure in a building

🌟MOLD
Clogged Rain Gutters may Cause Attic Mold. When rain gutters and downspouts become blocked, water will simply take the path of least resistance. If water gets into your attic, it can create a mold problem. Mold spores are everywhere, both indoors and out.

🌟PEST CONTROL
Clogged up gutters can be appealing to a number of critters as a nesting site. From birds to mosquitoes, a bed of damp leaves can be alluring.

🌟OVER WATERING OF PLANT BEDS
If your gutters become clogged to the point that water is spilling over the side and into your garden beds, you can damage your plants’ health by essentially drowning them. Overwatering can be as harmful as not watering enough.

🌟DAMAGE TO BRACKETS
Clogged gutters are holding too much weight, which can result in damage to the brackets.
