4 Reasons Why Getting Gutters Cleaned In The Fall Is Important

The fall season is upon us, and it’s time to start preparing for the heavy Vancouver rain! As leaves fall, they can clog gutters if they are not cleared. Rainwater needs to flow seamlessly through the gutters to find its way back to its source. Here are four reasons why you should consider getting gutter cleaning services.

1. Prevent water damage

Rainwater may not drain properly if gutters are clogged with leaves and debris. If gutters are not cleared, the rainwater will have to find different paths to flow through. Over time, this could result in the building structure being damaged.

2. Protect your roof

When gutters get clogged, rainwater has nowhere to run. The water then begins to flow over, which can eventually cause roofs to rot or leak. Not only is this an inconvenience for those being disrupted by the leak, but it also leaves the structure unappealing to look at. Imagine walking into a store with a leaky or damaged roof. Customers are likely to turn away with the impression that the business with the leaky or damaged roof is neglectful or does not care about its products or brand. Not only do clean gutters allow rainwater to flow properly, but it also leaves building structures looking clean and well-maintained. 

3. Reduce the risk of a cracked foundation

As rainwater collects around the foundation of any building structure, it can weaken the foundation over time as the water freezes and expands in the colder months. When professional gutter cleaning is done, it allows water to flow freely and travel to its source without causing damage to building structures.

4. Keep pests away

Did you know that clogged gutters with leaves are a great place for rodents, birds, and insects to reside in? Keeping gutters clean is important to prevent pest infestations.
