How Often Should I Clean the Gutters? Get a Maintenance Plan – Gutter maintenance is a task that is easily overlooked by many homeowners. However, ensuring your gutter is clean is crucial for a safe, long-lasting home. If you fail to give your gutters regular TLC, this can lead to expensive hassles at high prices. New Jersey gets a decent amount of rainfall through the year. All that moisture, as well as freezing temps in winter, can result in overflow or leaks if a gutter gets clogged.
Gutter neglect can lead to roof and siding damage as well as damage to your foundation and surrounding vegetation.
When to Clean the Gutters
We recommend having your gutters inspected and cleaned at least one to two times per year – once in the spring and once in the fall. But if you have trees that overhang your roof and shed often, you may have to do it more often. Also, you may need more frequent cleaning if your area has just experienced a damaging storm that left branches, leaves and debris in your gutters.
Follow a Maintenance Plan
Sure, you could do the gutter cleaning yourself, but then you risk falling off the ladder or wasting an entire Saturday getting goop out of your downspouts. Plus, it’s easy to forget your twice-yearly cleaning schedule when you’re not held accountable. That’s why it’s best to follow a maintenance plan from your gutter cleaning professionals.

What Happens If You Don’t Clean Your Gutters?
Lots of problems can crop up when you fail to clean your gutters regularly, such as:
- Roof Damage
- Bugs, Insects, and Pests
- Driveway Destruction
It’s important to know how to spot potential damage. Many things can contribute to failing gutters, from the age of the gutters themselves to pooling of water around your lawn or driveway. You may also be experiencing water leaks inside your home or dripping gutters due to a clogged pipe.
