Autumn is in full swing, and homeowners all over Delaware are dealing with a downpour of fallen leaves. While gutter maintenance can be easy to ignore, you must enlist the help of a professional to keep your home’s gutters clean and clear. Clogged drains can lead to a slew of different issues, and improper cleaning from amateurs or cut-rate contractors can do more harm than good. Read on to learn about the importance of thorough gutter cleaning and why you can trust Paul’s Lawn Service to do the job right.
Clogged Gutters Can Overflow
One of the biggest perils of clogged gutters is that they do not carry water where they should. Instead, they allow rainwater to pool and seep into your home’s foundation, your walls, or even your roof. This can cause water damage, which can be devastating and expensive. The purpose of your gutters is stormwater management, and gutter cleaning allows these channels to disperse water properly. At Paul’s, we know the importance of clear gutters. Our gutter cleaning services will leave your home’s stormwater management channels clear and functional, ensuring that you are ready for whatever harsh weather the Delaware winter will throw at you.
Snow and Ice Add Weight
As we approach winter, poorly-maintained gutters become even more perilous. Leaves and debris cause their own issues, and they can increase the likelihood that your gutters will accumulate snow and ice. When water remains in your gutters, it can freeze. Not only can this damage your pipes and connections, but it also adds weight that your gutters were not designed to carry. When your gutters are weighed down by snow, ice, and debris, they can become damaged or present a safety hazard.
Leaf-Filled Gutters Attract Pests
While rain and snow create their own hazards, dry weather can also present challenges for homeowners with clogged gutters. Leaf-filled gutters can create a perfect environment for insects and wildlife to build nests. Squirrels, rats, and birds can all cause problems with your home’s gutters, and gutter cleaning allows you to prevent and detect any hidden issues. When you use Paul’s Lawn Service for your home maintenance and landscaping projects, you can rest assured that your tasks will be done thoroughly and professionally.
