#2 Animals

Gutter Cleaning Services - Animals
Debris in the clogged gutters and insects can turn the gutters into appetizing place where squirrels, mouses, birds and other animals like to nest and breed. They can easily pass through the fascia and soffit board in attempting to reach the warm air coming from an attic. Well-maintained gutter will keep animals and insects away of your home, saving you the trouble of removing them.

 

 

 

 

#3 Rotting Soffit and Fascia Board

Gutter Cleaning Services - Rotten Fascia BoardClogged gutters accumulate water, that can rot the wood and cause serious damage to the soffit and fascia board. There is no need to be much water in the gutter in order for rotting to take place, debris build up within the gutter can transfer water from the gutter to the soffit and fascia boards.

Clearing your gutters once or twice a year will protect not only your guttering system but the whole house itself. It’s a simple maintenance that can prevent many unwanted and expensive repairs.

 

 

#4 Cosmetic Damages, Leaking Basement, Leaking Roof, Fungal Growth

Poor maintenance of gutters and downpipes can cause the joints to drip and gutters to overflow which over time leads to fungal growth, moss, and mold. These tree toxic problems hold water near the structure of the house like a sponge, harmful for your health and home. 

When gutters overflow, water runs down the facade, it can damage the brickwork and crack the foundation of your home. Please be aware, as such repairs are very difficult to execute. The possibility of leaking basement and roof leaks caused by overflowing gutters is also high. A leaking roof will cause a sinking of the ceiling and over time even it’s collapsing. Water can also penetrate into the basement, and continue to damage your home…
