What Happens If You Don't Clean Your Gutters?

Most people do not think cleaning their gutters is all that important. They do not realize the ramifications that could have on the rest of their home. For starters, gutters are meant to keep water away from your house. As leaves and other debris fill your gutters and block them up, water cannot drain out of them properly. Now your gutters start to overflow and spill water onto the walls and down to the foundation of your house.

Now, instead of spending a few minutes cleaning out your gutters, you have serious water damage in your walls and foundation to contend with.

Another danger of not cleaning your gutters out regularly is that when they begin to overflow a good amount of that water can freeze over during the winter months, creating a very icy and slippery obstacle course outside your house.

Cleaning gutters takes less time now than it ever has and you can do a better. By doing this regularly you save yourself a lot of time and money in potential water damage down the line. Gutter cleaning really can save you money.
