One of the many “joys” of homeownership is keeping your rain gutters and downspouts clean. You may be wondering if it’s even necessary to clean them all that often, but trust our professional opinion: it’s critical. Gutters are crucial to your home's integrity. They are the devices that control the flow of the rainwater, which protects your home's landscape, foundation, roof, and walls. The dry summer season usually brings tons of leaves, dust, and debris, especially after a heightened fire season. This debris fills in the valleys of your roof and gutters. Gutters are hung at slight angles to direct the flow of water toward downspouts. With winds picking up this winter and debris piling up, incoming rains are sure to sweep all those packed-in branches, leaves, and dirt down your roof valleys and gutters and concentrate them into clogs.
A clogged gutter or downspout prohibits water from flowing. This leads to water backing up into the eves and under roof tiles, pooling and weighing on sections of gutter until they are dislodged out of place, which causes the angle to change and further disrupts the intended flow of water toward downspouts. To prevent this from happening and ensure that your gutters are doing their jobs, let’s look at the six key steps to how professionals like us can keep your gutters pristine.
