With fall in full swing and leaves falling, now is a good time to pay a little extra attention to your home’s gutters. The intention for your gutters is to collect precipitation, but they are also very good at collecting fallen leaves! This can cause your gutters to clog and prevent them from working correctly. If your clogged gutters are left untreated, your home is most susceptible to water damage. Besides the possibility of water damage, there are other reasons to keep your gutters clean!

  1. While ice dams aren’t that much of a problem in the fall, if you leave your gutters clogged, this can create ice dams during the winter. If your home has clogged gutters, there is nowhere for the melted ice water to go, but your home.
  2. If you leave your gutters clogged for too long, there is a good change that they’ll become too heavy and collapse.
  3. If you are trying to sell your home, damaged gutters can give your home an undesirable look and decrease your home’s value.
