Regular Gutter and Eavestrough Cleaning Protects Your Home

Gutters serve the very important function of guiding rainwater and snowmelt off your roof and away from your home's walls, foundation, driveway and landscaping. However, because gutter and eavestrough systems contain a variety of places where leaks or clogs can occur, it's essential to maintain them.

The Top 8 Reasons You Should Hire Expert Gutter and Eavestrough Cleaning Services

Gutter cleaning is a vital part of home maintenance for the following reasons:

 

1. Gutter and eavestrough cleaning can prevent costly water damage.

Water can enter your home from various areas within your gutter system.
Leaks can cause damage to your: 

  • roof

  • fascia boards

  • exterior walls

  • windows

  • insulation

  • ceilings

  • interior walls

  • foundation

  • basement

Rainwater and snowmelt can cause wood structures like fascia to rot and cement around walls and windows to wear away or crack. Moisture can sneak into your home through even the tiniest cracks and holes, eventually soaking through in-wall insulation to penetrate ceilings and interior walls. Once it does, it can create dampness, leading to ugly stains, dangerous mould and mildew formation, and structural damage that could eventually cause your roof to collapse under heavy snow. 

And that's not the worst of it. Without the protection offered by your eavestroughs, your home's foundation has no guard against pooling water from heavy rainfalls. If your foundation cracks, it can cause basement flooding that destroys rugs, furniture and irreplaceable items like the photo albums and antiques you may have stored there – and again – require costly remediation.

2. Gutter and eavestrough cleaning can prevent or slow the formation of ice dams.

An ice dam is a ridge of ice that forms at the roof's edge. Gutters clogged with leaves and other debris can hasten their formation by trapping water that would otherwise drain away. The water that backs up behind an ice dam can leak into your home and cause damage to the attic, insulation, ceilings, walls, etc.

The weight of an ice dam can cause a gutter to sag or even detach from the fascia and fall, creating a hazard for anyone working, walking or standing below it. Ice blocks and icicles that form at the bottom of the dam can fall even if the gutter stays in pace and cause significant injuries.

3. Gutter and eavestrough cleaning can prevent pests from nesting in eavestroughs.

We already know that leaves, twigs, dirt and shingle granules can clog your gutters, but they can also make comfy nests for birds, mice, squirrels, lizards, mosquitoes, etc. Because birds, rodents, lizards and mosquitoes are all potential disease carriers, they can create health risks for you and your family.

The breakdown of nests, combined with feces and food left behind, can encourage tree seedlings, plants and fungi to sprout from your eavestroughs. The roots of these sprouts can conduct water to areas where it's not supposed to be and degrade the putty or sealant used to secure gutter joints and endcaps.

4. Gutter and eavestrough cleaning can lower fire risks.

During hot summer months, dry debris in your gutters becomes a fire hazard. Whether it's a spark from a nearby bushfire or a neighbour's backyard blaze, if a stray ember lands in a gutter filled with flammable debris like resin-filled pine needles or fluffy nesting materials from birds or rodents, it can start a fire that can quickly spread to your home.

5. Gutter and eavestrough cleaning can prevent shingle and tile wear that can lead to leaks.

As your roof ages, the asphalt shingles, clay or slate tiles that cover it can shift, lift or crack. Clogged gutters that cause water to pool on your roof can increase this wear and tear, leading to – you guessed it – leaks and water damage.

6. Gutter and eavestrough cleaning can protect trees and plants from overwatering.

Trees, shrubs and flowers add to your home's curb appeal and provide a welcoming environment for owners and visitors alike. But they also create buffer zones that protect your house from the elements – supplying cooling shade during the summer and shelter from the wind all year around. 

When gutter cleaning doesn't happen, and your system gets clogged, overflowing water from your roof can wash away precious topsoil, damage or kill plants and waterlog areas around trees that could cause them to topple in a storm. 

7. Gutter and eavestrough cleaning can help minimize insurance claim rejections.

Many insurance policies explicitly state they don't cover property damages caused by lack of maintenance. If you neglect to do regular gutter cleaning and submit a claim for related water or other damage, your claim could be denied.

8. Gutter and eavestrough cleaning can extend the life of your gutter system.

Depending on whether it's made from aluminum, steel, vinyl, etc., with regular gutter cleaning, your gutter system can last anywhere from 20 to 50 years.
