Why Gutter Cleaning is Important?

Gutters are an important part of your home that keep the rain from getting inside. They also protect your roof, foundation, and landscaping.

A clogged gutter can cause water to overflow onto the ground or lead to a leak in your roof which will require costly repairs.

While it all sounds fairly simple, the average homeowner should clean their gutters much more frequently than they actually do.

Can Dirty Gutters Cause Damage?

Absolutely!

Not only are dirty gutters a fire hazard, but they can also lead to a host of other problems due to uncontrolled rainwater.

Without clean gutters, rainwater can lead to flooding under your roof or cause damage to the internal and external walls of your house. In worst-case scenarios, you could end up with a mold infestation and serious water damage to your home that cannot be easily repaired.

Cleaning out your gutters from the leaves, dirt and debris they catch is the easiest way to avoid the risk of fire and to save yourself the hassle of costly repairs down the line!

And that takes us to the question that brought you here: how often do you need your gutters cleaned, anyway?

How Often Should You Clean Your Gutters?

To be on the safe side, you should clean your gutters twice a year. Once at the start of summer and once again before winter sets in.

In saying this, your gutter system may need more regular attention.

It just depends on what your specific setup is. Here are a few factors that influence the frequency you’ll need to get your gutters cleaned out.

Capacity of Your Gutters

It may go without saying, but the capacity of your gutter system influences how frequently you’ll need to clean it out.

Smaller gutters need more regular attention than larger gutters do.

If you’re choosing a type of gutter to install, go wide and deep in order to max out the capacity so you don’t have to clean your gutters as regularly.

Trees and Vegetation Around Your Property

The biggest source of gutter blockages are leaves, twigs, and debris from trees and other vegetation. They can often clog up your downpipes preventing rainwater from being funneled around your property as intended.

The types of trees around your property or neighbourhood can influence how frequently you’ll need to clean out your gutters. Evergreen trees shed their leaves less than trees that drop all their leaves in Autumn, for instance.

That’s why we suggest you schedule a good clean before winter sets in, especially if your home is surrounded by many trees that shed in Autumn.

Client Testimonials

“Jasper did a complete external house clean for us: roof, eaves, gutters, cladding, driveway, pathways, wooden deck, letterbox, retaining walls and stepping stone pavers. He didn’t just hit everything with a pressure cleaner, but used different cleaning techniques and materials for different areas to get the best results. He did an excellent job of everything, and was great value for money. Thoroughly recommend.”
