As you searched for your perfect home, you were looking for a place where you could feel comfortable and well-rested. One of the things that drew you to your home was the trees that surround it. While these trees are great for providing you with extra privacy, the fact that they constantly shed leaves can provide you with some unique challenges in the maintenance of your home—particularly when it comes to maintaining your gutters.
Since your trees shed leaves throughout the year, anytime that it gets windy or rainy, you have a chance of finding leaves and other debris in your gutters. If you fail to clean out the gutters, over time, this debris can lead to clogged gutters. This is especially true if you have a few other factors such as a flat roof or poorly designed downspouts. Once you have a collection of debris in your clogged gutters, it opens up the way for nests of birds and other pests, as well as mold growth.
Clogged gutters can lead to gutters that sag or overflow. They can also lead to mold, birds and pests living in the gutters. This can lead to other potential clogs in your gutters.
If all of these results of clogged gutters sound like things you would rather avoid, the key is to prevent your gutters from becoming clogged in the first place. There are different methods of prevention, such as the addition of gutter guards and heat tapes, as well as proper attic ventilation and routine maintenance, which should be completed at least twice a year.
