Why Do Gutters Need Cleaning?
In British Columbia, it is especially important to keep your gutters clean due to the region's frequent rain, amount of trees and varying weather patterns. The heavy rainfall and the potential for winter storms can put extra strain on your gutters and make them more prone to clogging. A mossy roof can also cause clogged gutters, the moss eventually breaks off and accumulates in the gutters. Visit our roof cleaning page for more information.
Clogged Gutters Cause Damage
Clogged gutters can cause water damage to your home, foundation, and landscape. When water is not properly drained away from your home, it can pool in the gutters. When they become heavy they can pull away from the fascia and start to sag, This can lead to costly repairs. Clogged gutters can also lead to water seeping into your attic and potentially into the home causing damage to the roof, walls, insulation, and drywall. A damp attic also provides ideal conditions for mold to grow. In metro vancouver most home gutter systems drain into the municipal storm sewer system. When Gutters overflow they can cause cracking and erosion to the homes foundation due to improper drainage.
When Should You Clean Your Gutters?
We recommend that gutters be cleaned at least once a year. Properties that have large trees overhead may need to have their gutters cleaned more frequently, leaves and other debris from these trees can clog the gutters more quickly. The weight of the debris can put extra strain on the gutters. The ideal time to clean your gutters is in the fall before the winter months. During the fall, leaves and other debris are more likely to clog the gutters, and cleaning them before the winter ensures that they are able to effectively drain any rain or melting snow. In the winter, clogged gutters can cause ice dams to form, which can damage the gutters and cause them to pull away from the house.
