Why is it important to clean the gutters around your home? This quintessential exterior home maintenance project makes sure the gutters can do their job of directing rainwater away from your house.
Rain, Rain Go Away
When rainwater is channeled away from your home and into areas of your choosing, you ensure your home is safe from excess moisture. If you direct rainwater away from the home and into the flowerbeds and grass, this can keep your landscaping looking fresh. Regular gutter cleaning even protects the strength of your roof.
How Often Does This Need to Be Done?
How often do you need to grab your extension ladder, hire a pro or bribe a friend to clear out gutters? Normally, twice a year is the golden number – once before winter comes and once in the spring. If your home has fruit trees that overhang the roof, then clean the gutters more often.
