6 Reasons to Clean Out Your Gutters and Underground Drains

Facia & Gutter Damage

Your facia board is what your gutter is attached to. When your gutters are clogged they will overflow with water and backup, potentially causing wood rot to the facia along with other wood that holds your roof together. Clogged gutters can also decrease the life span of your gutters.

Eliminates Nesting Areas & Post Infestation

You may think your gutters are fine even though there has been no rain, but if they’re full of debris, it’s a perfect nesting area for ants, birds, rats, or squirrels. Which then can really back up when it rains, causing a perfect breeding ground for mosquitos and other insects that thrive in stagnant water.

Prevent Foundation & Landscape Damage

By cleaning your gutters and drains out, you help prevent that water from overflowing from the gutters and splashing down on your expensive landscaping — destroying and eroding the landscape which can also carry water back within your foundation.

Prevent Interior Damage & Extend Your Roof’s Lifespan

Gutter cleaning is very important to your roof and the interior of your home. If your gutters are clogged, the water sits on your roof looking for a way to drain. The water will put stress within the roof structure, and could possibly find its way to the interior, causing major water damage within the walls of your home.
