Fall Gutter and Roof Cleaning
Gutter and roof cleaning service demand jumps to an all-time high during the fall months, when the combination of leaves and rain clog up your gutters and layers on top of the mildew and moss growths on roofs, opening up a host of other problems such as improper drainage and pest infestations.
Fall leaves are beautiful, but when they land in your gutters they create a mess. It’s hard enough to keep up with the falling foliage in your yard, and there’s little time left over for gutter cleaning. This time of year, you want to enjoy the outdoors, not spend every free minute fighting nature. However, when gutters become clogged by leaves, twigs, and dirt it can lead to serious issues. As a homeowner, it’s crucial that you seek the assistance of a professional who can help keep your roof and gutter systems ready for the worst weather of the year.
Here are the most important things to keep in mind about your roof and gutters as the seasons change.
Protection From Structural Damage and Mold
Water leaks under roof shingles and causes rotted roof decking. Damage can extend to support beams, causing structural problems and eventual collapse. Wet debris is heavy. Your gutters might pull away from your home, tearing away siding and trim. Wet debris expands when it freezes, which can cause gutters to crack during winter. The water damage a clogged gutter can cause is also an ideal breeding ground for toxic mold. Failing to clear your gutters of leaves and other debris might mean subjecting your family to the harmful effects of mold.
Fall is synonymous with falling leaves and rain, both of which can create warm pockets of water within your gutters that become breeding grounds for pests. Damp organic material invites insects to nest. Rodents, birds, and roaches find a moist environment to build their homes. Worse, some of these insects may carry diseases that can compromise your family’s health.
Proper gutter cleaning service is essential for preventing fall flooding, which can cause water to seep through the cracks in your roof, down your walls, and into your home’s foundations, causing damage to everything along its way. Neglecting to clean your gutters can contribute to even more severe structural problems if that water freezes during the winter months.
A Bad Look
Debris-filled gutters give your home a neglected appearance, reducing curb appeal. If you are worried about the look of your home, cleaning the roof and gutters before winter is a must. Not to mention anyone who is interested in selling or renting a home is going to have a hard time if it looks disheveled and unkempt. The chipped paint and rusty metal that result from neglecting your gutters and roof only make things worse.
