Top Three reasons people delay gutter cleaning
Out of sight, out of mind. A lot of people do not realize that they need their gutters cleaned, until they are rotting, leaking, overflowing or creating other damage.
Some are unaware that leaves retain moisture and that needles are acidic, virtually rotting their gutters.
People have physical limitations or fear of heights, amplified by roof type or pitch.
No matter where you live it’s safe to say that every six months, your gutters will accumulate anywhere between 40-250 pounds of leaves, muck, branches, shingle rock, etc. Clean gutters are a huge factor in avoiding major and expensive home repairs. Gutters perform one job: controlling the water around your home. If debris keeps them from doing their job you could end up with rotting wood on your house, in your attic, drywall damage, and basement moisture problems. Along with damage to the gutters themselves.
