When it rains, one of your home’s unsung heroes is the gutter system. It’s responsible for directing water away from where it could damage your home, such as your walls, siding and roof decking. Neglect and lack of maintenance, however, can make it inefficient and even useless.
Here’s why regular gutter services, which includes inspection and cleaning, are important.
Prevention of Water Damage
Keeping water away from your home is the main purpose of your gutters. Leaks occur when your gutters are so clogged that water overflows from them and goes to exposed areas of the roof and siding. By cleaning your gutters every few months or so, you can keep water damage to a minimum.
Safety From Pests
When your system is choked with debris, water can lead to damage in the form of pests and mold. The pests can nest in the debris itself. From rats to birds to mosquitoes, you can keep them at bay with routine gutter services from professional roofers like RainTech.
Healthy, Clean Air
The other threat you need to worry about is mold. When your interior is consistently attacked by moisture damage, the dampness will attract mold growth. Mold releases microscopic spores in the air, which can trigger asthma and other allergies.
By keeping your gutter system consistently clean, you save more money overall. Rather than spending lots of money on repairs, from gutter and roofing services, you cut down on them by nipping huge problems in the bud. This both saves your gutters and protects your roof, reducing your costs on two fronts.
Lastly, a clean gutter system can give your home a fresh look. Clean gutters emphasize the sleekness of your roofline and tell the guests that the owner of the house values cleanliness and comfort.
