Homeowners sometimes put off gutter cleaning, in hopes that no significant damage will occur. Water infiltration is usually the result of a faulty gutter system, or one that has not been maintained. We offer gutter cleaning and installation to residents of Cincinnati, OH. Below are 4 reasons to clean your gutters:
Birds and other wildlife congregating on your roof, and near your gutters, is a major sign of a clogged gutter. Your gutter should be cleaned regularly to keep animals away from your roof. Pests could be clogging your gutters and creating a water backup, which in turn attracts more pests and animals to that area. It’s true that insects will always be in your gutters in some capacity, but larger animals like birds, squirrels, and possums, should not be around there.
Homeowners who notice plant growth in their gutters should contact a professional roofer. Your gutter system has been compromised through the buildup of seeds and dirt. Failure to clean your gutters regularly, cause infiltration of seeds, which breed green plants, and cause further complications for your gutter system.
If rain storms cause your gutters to mimic a waterfall, it is a clear sign that they require cleaning. Blockages caused from gutter clogs force the water to spill over the side. This can spell major trouble for your gutter system, and effect your home’s foundation. For gutter cleaning in Cincinnati, OH, call us at (513) 896-1600
