How Often Do Gutters Need to Be Cleaned?

Gutters are a very important investment for any home. Gutters keep collected water from damaging your home by sending it to a drain or downspout. Safely directing melting snow and water away from your home is crucial to help protect the roof, siding, foundation, interior, and exterior of your home.  

When it comes to maintenance, there are a few things you should be aware of so you know when and how often to check in on your roof. Here are some of the most important things to keep in mind when it comes to gutters.

Why Do Gutters Need Cleaning?

If you decide to forgo cleaning your gutters too long, you are running the risk of letting built-up debris cause sagging, mold growth, and so on. Uncleaned gutters also make excellent homes for pests and rodents. These issues may lead to water-damaged homes and more costly repairs down the road.

How Often Do I Need to Clean My Gutters?

Your gutters should be cleaned at least twice a month. The best times to do this are in the spring and in the fall. However, depending on where you live, and the types of trees around your home — you may need to do this more often. For instance, if you live by a lot of pine trees, know that they will need cleaned every three months.

I Don’t Like Ladders, Who Can Help?

If being on ladders and moving around with tools in your hand makes you uncomfortable, seeking professional help is a great option. A professional craftsman will be able to inspect and clean your gutters and can also alert you of potential issues or repairs that may need to be done in the future.
