Why Gutter Cleaning is Important During Autumn

Autumn is the most picturesque time of year. The trees all begin to go brown, and their crunchy leaves fall and litter the streets. But this can affect your gutters; if you live in an area with a lot of surrounding trees, then they could collect in your gutters and cause problems for your property.

Cleaning Your Gutters

The gutter system in your property forms a key part in ensuring that your property can adequately dispose of all rainwater. In dry weather, a few leaves in your gutter won’t be a huge problem, however, if it rains, they can become heavy and prevent excess rain from draining properly. This can lead to overflowing and even cause structural damage to your property such as: walls, soffits, fascia, siding, basement, and even your foundation. If your property suffers water damage due to lack of gutter maintenance, your insurance company may hold you at fault, so if you fail to maintain your gutters the consequences may be detrimental.

If a gutter blockage is severe, it can cause damage to your gutter as it cannot hold the weight of the excess water. Gutters are not cheap to replace, so therefore regular maintenance is important.

A gutter system full of leaves could also provide the perfect home for pests such as mice, rats and birds. The cosy beds provided by the fallen leaves could attract unwanted visitors, which can be prevented if you have your gutters regularly cleaned by our professional team at Archer Window Cleaning.

If a gutter blockage is severe, it can cause damage to your gutter as it cannot hold the weight of the excess water and other blockages. Gutters are not cheap to replace, so therefore regular maintenance is important. A small investment in having your gutter cleaned now by our team could save you money in the future.

How Often Should I Have My Gutter Cleaned?

If you live in an area without any trees around, you could probably get away with cleaning your gutters just once a year. Of course, if there is a tree close to your house that loses its leaves, you may be required to clean them more often. Therefore, if you’re surrounded by plenty of trees, you’re going to need to clean your gutters a whole lot more.
