Cleaning your gutters is an important part of maintenance on your home, and should be done on a regular basis. When your gutter system is clogged with debris, it cannot direct the water away from your house. This can cause damage to the fascia and roof, as well as rotting wood around your windows and doors. If your gutters are not functioning correctly, expensive damage will eventually occur. The foundation of your home can even be at risk. With our beautiful climate, the trees are constantly dropping leaves and pollen, acorns and pine needles. It is a never ending battle to keep up with it. This causes your gutters to fill up often. The best way to solve this problem is to get on our regular maintenance schedule. Most homes require their rain gutters to be cleaned at least twice per year.
