Why You Should Clean Your Gutters

Regular gutter cleaning is crucial to the health of your house. Removing debris from your gutters keeps your home’s structure healthy and also protects it from water damage. If you have clogged gutters or haven’t cleaned your gutters in some time, My Guy Services can take care of them for you. With a fast and effective work routine, we will clean your gutters with the expertise and caution your home deserves.

Benefits of Cleaning Your Gutters Often

Gutters can become clogged if not cleaned regularly. Clogged gutters damage many areas of your home, from your house’s foundation to the roof. Too much water falling close to your home can wear away the soil around it, compromising your home’s foundation. If you keep your gutters clean, you can prevent this from occurring because well-maintained gutters funnel water off the roof and away from your home.

Clogged gutters can also cause water to overflow onto your roof and walls. If the water spills out of gutters onto the roof, you could end up with a leak. Water that runs down the exterior and interior walls of your house can cause water damage as well. There is also the possibility of the gutters falling altogether. Too much debris and dirt and critters can weigh a gutter down, causing it to detach from your home and potentially hurt someone or damage another part of your house.

Cleaning your gutters can prevent these potential damages and keep your family out of any possible danger. Your house’s foundation, walls and roof are also safe from water damage when gutters are well maintained. Additionally, you can save a great deal of money from cleaning your gutters instead of letting them clog and create more costly problems.

When to Turn to Professionals

Using the proper kind of ladder is crucial when cleaning your gutters. Your ladder should be sturdy and large enough — never put yourself in a dangerous position. In addition to the correct ladder, you should use the proper protective gear. Wear gloves to protect your hands from debris and proper eyewear. Lastly, the right rubber shoes can help you get a good grip when climbing up the ladder.

Cleaning gutters can be hard. If your house is high, using a ladder can cause accidents if you are not careful. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), the United States leads the world in ladder deaths. Ladder falls cause over 164,000 emergency room injuries and 300 deaths in the U.S. per year.

Hiring professionals who can clean your gutters quickly and adequately ensures your safety and prevents damage from clogged gutters. Exterior cleaning companies have the experience, knowledge and tools to do the job right with a smaller chance of injury.
