How often do you clean and maintain your rain gutters and downspouts?
During autumn, when you are cleaning leaves from your yard, you should also schedule maintenance to have the rain gutters, downspouts and roof cleaned as well.
The professionals at Purity Cleaning & Restoration Services Inc. can provide a pre-inspection and proposal for rain gutter cleaning.
Did you know that clogged rain gutters can lead to damage to other parts of your home?
Rain gutters and downspouts are designed to move water away from your home. If the water is not flowing away properly, it may lay at the base of your home and cause damage to your foundation. Water that is trapped in the rain gutters can weigh down and damage the gutter itself and the fascia boards they are attached to. In cold weather, ice dams can form in the gutter or on the edge of the roof. If water pools on the roof it can seep into your home, damaging the roof and the wood underneath.
Clogged rain gutters are also a great breeding ground for pests like mosquitoes or wood-destroying insects like termites and carpenter ants. By giving your rain gutters a little TLC you are helping them do their job.
Signs to look for that indicate clogged rain gutters:
- Water spilling over the sides during a rain shower
- Gutters pulling away from the house or sagging
- Stains on your siding from where water is running down the side of your home
- Birds hanging around the edge of the roof, or on the gutter
- Little trees growing in your rain gutters
