Why You Should Keep Your Gutters Clear
Clogs can be very damaging to your house. When gutters become overwhelmed by leaves and other foliage, they become a holding vessel for water. Keeping water close to your exteriors can increase the risk of leaks. The risk increases in the winter time when snow and ice build up in the drainage system, not allowing any movement.
A compromised drainage system can be a very serious thing. Gutters are put in place for a reason and play a big part in protecting your home from wetness. A functioning system will direct rainfall away from your house and foundation. When not working properly, water can start to accumulate at your home, weakening the soil and even sinking the foundation.
Moisture can also work away at the integrity of the wood in your home. It’s weakened by the damp environment which can allow for growth of mildew and mold. Left alone it can even start to spread to the interior.
Clogged gutters can also be a welcoming home for bugs, critters, and small rodents. They can multiply and even start making their way inside, becoming an even bigger problem! Soon you may be on your way to finding an exterminator.
