It may be tempting to put off gutter cleaning, but staying on top of this exterior household chore is essential to keeping your home in good shape and protecting your family. Learning why it’s so important can help motivate you to avoid skipping it this year.
Protect Your Family From Mold and Mildew
As dead leaves and other biological debris pile up and clog your gutters over the winter, they decay and foster mold and mildew growth. These potentially harmful substances can get inside your house and spread, causing breathing problems for anyone in your family with respiratory concerns like asthma.
Shield Your Home from Water Damage
A gutter where the channels are full of leaves, twigs and even animal nests doesn’t give the water any good path to follow to the downspout and away from your home. That water can back up into the soffits and fascia, and cause water damage to the wood and affect the structural integrity of your house.
Keep Pests Out
A gutter full of greenery like pine needles and leaves makes a nice soft place for small animals to build nests or burrow. Once they’re settled, these birds and other animals can have an easier time making their way into your home, creating a costly infestation and damage.
