Any gutter full of debris is rendered useless and can unfortunately mean it’s also time for some repairs to be done. The accumulation of debris and dry leaves will prevent water from properly flowing down through the spout. This means that excess rainwater will instead pour out over the side of the gutter, onto the siding of the house and your surrounding landscape. Eventually, such actions necessitate expensive restoration and repair for the exterior to your home. In addition to this, having a clogged gutter can produce rust which requires replacement. During the freezing winters, having water trapped in your gutter can cause the formation of ice dams which will not only weigh down your gutter, but cause damage to your roof.

By having your gutters cleaned regularly you can avoid such disasters. Gutters can become clogged debris dropped by birds or squirrels, fallen leaves, or debris from your roof which makes its way down into the gutter. Any organic matter when combined with rainwater will cultivate mold which will continually exacerbate the issue of a clogged gutter.
