Homeowners need to know the best times for gutter cleaning to best protect their homes. We have heard the benefits of gutter cleaning before, but does the time of year affect the effectiveness of the cleaning? Gutter cleaning should be completed twice a year to prevent too much build-up and complete detachment from your roof.
In this blog we will share reasons to clean at specific times of the year and how it can prepare your home for the upcoming season. Gutter cleaning can be completed at any time realistically, but some seasons are more beneficial than others.
Avoid Roof And Foundation Damage With Gutter Cleaning
Properly installed and sloped gutters will help protect homes from overflowing water. Gutters help keep moisture from settling around your foundation or working its way underneath your shingles. Utilizing proper cleaning and maintenance twice a year will ensure that your roof and foundation stay in proper condition. Overflowing gutters will lead to flooding or foundation sinking. Gutters that are clogged will lead to moisture backup getting up underneath your roofing material.
Cleaning During The Spring
The most popular times to clean your gutters are in the spring and the fall. Cleaning your gutters in the spring will help remove build-up that accumulates through the winter. Tree branches, mold growth, composting leaves, and more can all damage your gutters.
Spring is also a great time to clean your gutters mainly because of the calmer weather. Springtime is warmer, without being too hot and causing dehydration. Cleaning in the spring also aligns with other spring cleaning tasks to improve your entire home.
Gutter Cleaning In Fall
Cleaning in the fall months will help prepare your home for the upcoming months with more sediment, tree branches, leaves, rain, and more. Gutter cleaners often get really busy during the fall season because many homeowners want to be prepared for the influx of moisture during the winter. Plan to hire a professional at the beginning of the fall season to ensure you get your cleaning done before the winter.
