Avoid Pests

When your gutter system is filled with debris, pests can make a home out of them. Ants, wasps, squirrels and mice are attracted to clogged gutters. From the gutters, these creatures can easily gain access to your home. Have your gutters regularly cleaned to prevent these creatures from entering your house.

Keep Your Gutters Efficient

Your gutters will help direct water away from your house from the heavy rains that spring brings. Fallen leaves, branches, and other debris can block water flow in your gutters. Clogged gutters will prevent water from draining properly. They can also cause rainwater to overflow to your siding and roof, which can lead to costly water damage. Investing in regular gutter maintenance can help prevent this problem. Make sure to hire a reputable residential roofing company for your routine gutter and roof maintenance like CQ Roofing.

Prevent Mold

Debris can cause standing water in your gutters, which can end up in your roof and walls. Besides water damage, this can result in mold growth. Mold can be costly to remove once it has spread around your home and it also poses dangers to your family’s health. Its spores can also trigger allergy and asthma attacks.
