You own a home. It is one of your most important investments. It has a roof, which protects you and keeps you dry. Most likely, your home has little unsung heroes – your gutters, the only thing keeping the water and debris that runs off your roof away from your home.
The problem is that gutters get clogged all year round, causing damage to your foundation, basement and even the gutters themselves. Mold, mildew, rot, flooding: all nasty stuff and all caused by clogged gutters.
Now, most people get that they have to clean out their gutters. But how often is enough? Once or twice a year? Not by a long shot.
First, we have March. Now, during the harsh winter months, late clinging leaves and branching fall on your roof and they get washed into your gutters. At the same time, you need your gutters re-nailed and leaders re-strapped because of those storms. With April showers coming, it’s time to clean, inspect and tune them up.
Next is spring, when trees reproduce, spreading seed pods, oak tassels, helicopters and other debris that ends up in your gutters, absorbing water and clogging your drains.
Then we’re on to summer, with thunderstorms galore that rip the leaves right off the trees and all over your roof. And guess where it goes then? Yep, right in the gutters. By the time Labor Day rolls around, you should be thinking about having all of that debris cleaned out, especially if it has been a while since they have been cleaned out.
Finally, there’s fall, a lovely season with football, crisp air and colorful changing leaves. But you know what? Gutters hate fall. So, they need some real TLC. You should clean them in early fall, middle fall and late fall, just before that winter freeze hits and locks that debris in for months.
