Gutter Cleaning: Dos and Don’ts

Gutter Cleaning

Know the dos and don’ts of gutter cleaning to avoid creating roof problems

Not all people may realize this, but gutter cleaning and maintenance is just as vital as cleaning the inside of your home. Maintaining it may look like an impossible job; however, there are ways on how we can keep a clean and robust gutter. Your gutter is an essential part of your house, and if you choose to neglect the maintenance, then gutter issues may occur. 

What Causes Damage to Gutters?

In some places where seasons change more often, it is strongly advised to keep your gutters intact. Several factors can cause damage to your gutters like hefty chunks of snow, clogged up leaves or twigs, or sometimes excess water from heavy rains

The weight from this debris can cause the drain to weigh down and fall off eventually. It is one of the main reasons why gutter cleaning and maintenance is a must for every homeowner.

The Dos and Don’ts of Gutter Cleaning

A gutter that does not work correctly can cause your home to be moldy, musty, or moist. As part of the proper gutter maintenance, here are the do’s and don’ts everyone should know.

DON’T: Skip the Cleaning

Not cleaning the gutter is a big no-no. Forgetting to clean your gutters will only lead to more problems. Always watch out for clogged drains. You may think that your gutter guards or gutter screens are doing their jobs, but they do not prevent debris from forming on your gutters. Thus, they are not the right substitutes for regularly cleaning your gutters. 

Not cleaning your gutter can increase the possibility of inviting insects and rodents entering your house. Avoid this from happening by doing at least a weekly check on your gutters.

DON’T: Neglect Small Issues

Most of the time, we use to neglect the small issues from our gutters. We do not realize how it can turn into something bigger and may rapidly become more serious. Prevent it from escalating into a considerable culprit by acting on it right away. As soon as you see a small hole or leak, you can do a temporary fix or call a specialist if you wish. 

DON’T: Ignore Your Hardware

Hardware is also a crucial factor for any type of gutters. If a gutter is not correctly installed, there is a big chance of developing issues on joints or hardware. Poorly pitched in gutters are also a concern aside from clogs. 

Hardware damage is possible, especially if there is an added stress caused by heavy and clogged gutters. Check the installment before you proceed with any other actions to avoid causing more damage. 

DO: Clean Gutters at Least Twice a Year

Perform gutter cleaning twice a year sounds more comfortable to do. It is one of the essential tasks in gutter maintenance since it accumulates leaves and debris. Ignoring the leaves and debris can cause a buildup of water inside the gutters, creating severe water damage inside your home. Practice the occasional cleaning to prevent these things from happening. You would not want to experience water leaks while you are sleeping peacefully.

DO: Try Seamless Gutters

Today, seamless gutters are nationally acknowledged as the most popular form of gutters installed. Since most households are now installing seamless gutters, there is a high demand for these types of gutters. It gained popularity because of its optimized and lower potential for leaks. Not only will you save money, but you also have a more durable gutter that will last longer than a year. 

DO: Spend Your Money on Downspouts

A downspout is a pipe that directs the rainwater from the roof to the ground. To avoid weighing more your gutters, it is better to install a downspout both on the upper roof and on the foundation. It guarantees a proper flow of water and protects your shingles from possible damage. Downspout protects your home from seeping water to your basement that can flood throughout the inside of your home.
