Gutter cleaning and clearing should be part of routine maintenance of your home. If you do not keep your gutters clog-free, several problems will occur. It’s worth noting that some of these problems can be severe to a level of lowering the value of your property. Some will necessitate costly repairs.
Keep Pests Away
When your gutters become clogged, they create an ideal environment for pests like ants and cockroaches to thrive. Clogged gutters provide food, protected area, and moisture that pests need to live and even breed. What’s more, clogged gutters allow pests easy access to the attic and eaves of a building. Clogs will also make water stand in your gutters thereby allowing mosquitoes, gnats, flies and other flying insects to breed.
Avoid Property Damage
In addition to attracting unwanted pests, when your gutters are clogged they tend to cause property damage. For instance, fascia boards and eaves can rot when rainwater builds up in the clogged gutters. These parts of a building can also attract carpenter ants that cause serious damage on a building. Fascia boards’ replacement is generally expensive. When water pools around the gutters due to clogging, the fascia board is weakened.
Additionally, clogged gutters can lead to rainwater accumulation around the foundation of a building. If it finds a penetration point, water will seep into the basement or crawlspace where it will cause issues like mold growth and overall structural damage on a building.
