Spring is the time for renewal, growth and new beginnings. If you didn’t get a chance to have your gutters cleaned in the fall, right now would be the perfect time to do so. Gutters tend to get clogged over time if they haven’t been cleaned in a while with debris, slowing rainwater from flowing seamlessly through them. If gutters are left uncleaned, it could lead to other problems later on.
Three reasons gutter cleaning is advised in the Spring
- Gutters can become very heavy as they get clogged with debris and filled with water that cannot flow through. The weight puts extra strain on them, preventing them from functioning properly. Getting gutter cleaning services can help extend the lifespan of your gutters, allowing water to flow through seamlessly.
- Did you know that Vancouver is estimated to get an estimate of 146 cm of rainfall each year? North Vancouver, which is closer to the mountains, gets an estimated average rainfall of 252 cm. Moving farther west, Tofino is estimated to get 327 cm of rain each year. That’s a lot of rainfall each year, and being prepared for it can prevent rainfall damage. Keeping gutters cleaned and allowing rainwater to flow through freely prevents the water from overflowing and leaking onto your property. If water is left to overflow, it could affect your roofing system or foundation. Having your gutters cleaned prevents rainwater from overflowing and causing property damage.
- If you haven’t had your gutters cleaned in a while, you may have noticed it attracting more pests like rodents, birds and insects. They tend to make gutters their home, preventing water from flowing through. Sometimes these pests can even find their way into your property, which is not ideal!
Having your gutters cleaned is important to ensure that rainwater can flow through seamlessly to prevent property damage. It can be a tedious task to take on by yourself, and that is why our cleaning crew can have them cleaned for you.
