Clean Gutter can help protect your property from water-related damage. During the rainy seasons, typically spring and fall. We like to do gutter cleaning twice a year to help with all that water.
Gutter cleaning is one of those chores that nearly every homeowner has on their to-do list. But no one wants to do that task of cleaning gutters. And climbing up a ladder to scoop leaves, debris, and sludge out of your gutters. Gutter Cleaning is one of those home maintenance projects that never seems to get crossed off the list. It’s important to not ignore this job. Especially in the spring and fall, gutter cleaning makes a major difference in keeping your home safe from water damage. Let True Lawn Care take car of your gutters for you.
Here in northern Ohio, spring and fall are the seasons of heaviest rainfall. It’s during these times that our gutters are most relied on to redirecting rainwater away from our homes and structures. And if your gutters are clogged, they simply won’t be able to meet the high demand. That’s where you run into problems with overflowing gutters and all the negative consequences that can create. If you’re concerned about landscape erosion, wood rot, and even foundation damage, making sure your gutters are cleaned this spring and again in the fall is the easiest way to secure peace of mind.
Why Gutter Matters
Now, you may be asking yourself, “How can those little gutter protect my house that much?” It’s certainly understandable to wonder how such a small part of your home’s exterior can make such a big difference in your whole house’s condition. What do those aluminum or steel channel gutter really do? The answer is actually quite simple: They manage the water flowing off your roof and keep it from ending up too near your home.
When your gutters are working properly, they collect all the water that is running off the entire surface area of your roof (which, in heavy storms, can be a surprising volume), and then they redirect it away from your structure via the downspouts.
When your gutters are blocked up, all the water that falls on your roof ends up pouring down right next to your home. Beyond the obvious issues of unattractive mud splatters on your siding, brick, or stucco, the end result is also a lot of water pouring into the ground awfully close to your house. As mentioned, the consequences can be pretty major: foundation cracks, water in your basement, rotting wood.
The good news is that preventing this type of property damage is extremely simple. Just don’t skip over “clean gutters” when you’re working on your to-do list. Gutter cleaning is simple enough for homeowners who are comfortable spending a few hours on top of ladder, but there’s also no shame in calling in the professionals. Gutter cleaning services are available from professional companies if you’d rather not climb on a ladder for hours, or if you would prefer to stay far away from that sloppy goop of leaves and twigs that needs to be removed from your gutters. To make certain your gutters are completely cleaned, whether you’re doing the job yourself or leaving it in the hands of us, ensure the downspouts are also cleared of obstructions. A quick wash from your garden hose is great for this.
