Why is it Important to Clean Your Gutters?
As a homeowner and business owner, cleaning gutters is easy to overlook. However, keeping your gutters clean is imperative to keeping a building safe. Well-maintained gutters also increase the life expectancy of a building and prevent costly damages.
People tend to neglect gutter cleaning, removal and maintenance. Often we simply just forget given our gutters are often out of sight and out of mind. Yet whilst it may seem like an inconvenience, the headaches it’ll save you, in the long run, make it worthwhile.
As well as cleaning your gutter, a gutter inspection is also recommended. A gutter service will determine the structural integrity of your gutters, checking if the fasteners are intact, the rain gutter is functioning well, as well as checking the fascia board that the gutters attach to isn’t rotting. They will of course inform you of any detected damage. Any signs of damage should be dealt with as soon as possible to prevent further challenges and resulting costs.
When gutters aren’t cleaned the following challenges often result;
- Leakage: clogged gutters from leaves and debris block the gutters causing rainwater build up and eventual overflow which can lead to water damage to your property
- Mold: left unattended collected leaves and debris in your gutter can decompose and rot. This in turn can cause mold to grow which thrives in damp environments. The mold can actually cause health problems in your house.
- Roof Damage: a clogged gutter means the rainwater collects and has nowhere to go. This causes water to overflow onto the roof, soaking through shingles which can eventually leak into your home. The weight of the rainwater can also make the roof cave in or cause cracked foundations
- Pests and Insects: the leaves and debris create a perfect environment for bugs and rodents to nest in. The decomposed leaves are also a great food source for them
How Often Should You Get Your Gutters Cleaned?
You should get your gutters cleaned at least once or twice per year. If your gutters removal and cleaning are not done this proactively you can cause real damage to the property. When gutters are completely blocked and the flow of water no longer occurs correctly leaks, the property is prone to leaks and damages.
If there are more trees in your area or the area is prone to debris in the air you may need to get the gutters cleaned more often. Some areas may even require gutter cleaning every three months.
Another factor to consider is how heavy the rainfall is. In the UK, rainfall is frequent and long-lasting. This mix of heavy rainfall and gutter debris can cause structural damage to your gutter system. Changes in temperatures should also be considered. If there is consistent rainfall followed by freezing temperatures, the gutter can shrink and then contract which will cause cracks and damage. Again the UK is of higher risk given the weather climate.
Given this gutter cleaning is best done at the end of autumn after all the tree foliage has accumulated in your gutter and the beginning of spring.
How to Know if Your Gutters Are Damaged Due to Build Up?
It’s always best to be proactive with gutter removal as opposed to waiting until there is clear evidence of damage. However, there are some indications that your gutter is more likely to be damaged;
- Gutter Age: older gutters are more prone to damage. Typically gutters should last 15-20 year before needing to be replaced. They can however last up to 40 years if well maintained. If they are older than 10 years it’d be smart to do routine damage checks.
- Dripping: when gutter are blocked, water will not flow through them correctly which causes them to drip. Dripping gutters are a clear sign of a clogged gutter.
- Pooling: if there are signs of pooling water around your property e.g. your lawn or driveway it’s possible this has resulted from poorly functioning gutters
- Roof damage / leaking: if your ceiling is damp or it seems like the roof is sunk or partly collapsing it’s more than likely you have a gutter issue that has caused excessive water build-up that has overflown to your roof and caused damage.
How Much Does Gutter Cleaning Cost
Gutter cleaning will cost will depend on various factors including:
- The size of your gutter system
- How many stories the building has
- How long ago the gutters were last cleaned
Larger gutters will cost more as will cleaning of buildings that are on multiple stories. For taller high-rise blocks and office building rope access professionals may be required to abseil up and down the building to facilitate gutter removal. If the gutters have not been cleaned for a long time, there will be excessive build-up, mold, and possibly pests and damage. All of which will inflate costs.
