Now is the Time to Clean your Gutters

Read about all of the reasons you shouldn't put off cleaning out your gutters any longer.

Since spring officially began last month, it's that time of year to get your gutters cleaned… again. All of the leaves that have fallen off the trees in the past six months are just sitting in your gutters waiting to cause water buildup and damage to your home. April is historically known for abundant amounts of rainfall, so you need functioning gutters to keep your home running optimally. 

Failing to have your gutters cleaned can cause serious damage to your home. For instance, if your gutters are blocked by debris, water can build up and cause damage to your roof. Standing water can spur mold growth and rot that is expensive to fix. Furthermore, this water can run all the way down the gutters into the ground and cause foundation damage. Although these are both severe outcomes, they are simple to avoid. It is recommended that you clean your gutters twice a year to guarantee that they will function properly. 

Another potential issue with failing to have your gutters cleaned is pest infestation. Clogged gutters make ideal nests for many different animals, such as squirrels, chipmunks, or rodents. These pests run the risk of damaging your home further or even spreading diseases. Additionally, these animals might be able to gain access into your home through the roof and/ or attic. For your peace of mind, have your gutters cleaned to keep your home and loved ones safe. 

There are many benefits that wait for you if you clean your gutters frequently, including increasing your home’s value. Having shiny, functional gutters improves the curb appeal of your home. Even this small act can set your home apart from your neighbors and even attract the attention of some potential buyers if you’re selling soon. Cleaning your gutters is a simple, yet critical, part of home maintenance that can put your mind at ease. 

Obviously, having clean gutters is critical, but it can be a huge hassle to do it yourself. Finding time in your busy schedule to get up on a ladder and clean gunk out of gutters yourself might be high on the to-do list, but a time-suck. Not to mention injuries that can be incurred in the process. If this sounds like your situation, just text Zeto and we’ll take care of it. You can learn more about how we can help at zeto.com.
