You’d be forgiven for not thinking all that often about your gutters. They are just there, on your home, doing their job quietly. Until they’re not, of course. If your gutter gets blocked with leaves or debris, not only will it stop working, it will become damaged and fail over time. This can result in a range of issues including damage to your home and yard, as the rain water is no longer safely channeled away from the building. Have your gutters regularly cleaned to make sure you don’t need to worry.
Why Bother Cleaning My Gutters?
The gutters on your home are there for a reason. They help to safely move rain water away from your property, stopping water from pooling around the building or in the yard, or sitting on the roof. If the gutters are blocked with leaves and debris they can’t do their job, which could mean water spills over the top and simply starts to gather at the base of your property. This can be inconvenient of course, but the bigger problem is that it can damage your foundations over time, by causing erosion and rot. Don’t ignore your gutters.

When Should I Clean The Gutters On My Property?
Most experts will tell you to clean your gutters twice a year, with a focus on the late spring to clear away any debris from fall and winter, and then again in late summer or early fall, to make sure any leaves which have come down over summer are removed. If you have pine trees near your property, or a lot of trees overhang your roof, you may need more regular cleaning. Scheduling regular gutter cleaning has a distinct advantage. It’s far more likely you’ll remember if this becomes a routine - and it also gives a good opportunity to check over the gutters for repairs, which you can then tackle before they become catastrophic.
Can I Clean The Gutters Myself?
In many cases cleaning out the gutters yourself is simply not practical. You need to be extremely careful to avoid problems when working at height, and will need the right ladders and equipment to reach your gutters safely. Most home owners don’t have the skills, confidence or equipment to make this happen themselves - meaning it is a household maintenance task which might be forgotten. Don’t let that happen - it’s far easier to have a professional come and do it for you - ad the small price of gutter cleaning could save you a much bigger repair bill down the line.
