What’s the Best Time of Year to Clean Your Gutters?
Gutter Cleaning: It’s best to clean them once in spring and once in fall. We know, we know, you probably don’t give much thought to your gutters every day, but you should at least schedule a cleaning twice a year so you don’t forget. If you can’t get it done in spring, choose late fall as the annual time to clean them out.
This is due to all the falling leaves, twigs and acorns, which can clog your gutters by November. Water flow is restricted and can cause backups when you don’t clean all that stuff out. Then, your gutters get heavy and will pull away from the home, damaging your gutters as well as your siding. Plus, ice dams can develop in the winter.
Gutters aren’t just a pretty accent for your home; they keep your roofs, siding and structural foundations in check. A clear gutter system will:
- Divert rain fall away from your home
- Keep water from pooling at the foundation
- Prevent streaking and staining
- Prevent rotting that can take away from the curb appeal and health of your home
- Prevent the need for unnecessary costly repairs
- Keep organic matter and water from forming mold
- Keep critters like squirrels and birds away if you keep clearing out their nests
Why You Need Us
Here at Clearview Washing, one of our specialty services is gutter cleaning. It’s always best to leave this task up to us. You may assume it’s a simple chore. Maybe you have the proper equipment, a few friends to help, and a one-story home. But for more complex cases, a professional is always best.
When your gutters start to drip or overflow, or you see pooling water, call us. Waiting will only cause bigger problems later on. We come equipped with all the right tools to get the job done safely and most importantly quickly!
Regular gutter cleaning will prolong the life of your gutters and home, as well as prevent further damage. Fall is a great time to tackle this, as the leaves are still relatively dry and easier to remove. If you wait, they will get soggy with rain and freeze up in clumps when the winter comes. When you remove leaves in fall, you allow for water to smoothly navigate through the gutter system. Plus, the weather is still relatively mild for the job.
Spring is another good time to do this. Again, temps are mild, making it a comfortable time to get rid of the debris that has built up from winter. If you attempt this in the dead of summer, you will be extremely uncomfortable due to the high temperatures, plus, there will be bugs and critters to contend with who have made a home in your gutter system.
Two more reasons to call us:
- Why waste a Saturday up on a ladder? Let us free up your time.
- Why risk your safety? We come prepared.
- You get advice from our professionals on how to avoid leaf buildup in the future and identify any problem areas.
