What’s clogging my gutters?
If you’re asking yourself what’s causing a stubborn clog, it could be one of many things. Some are simply a collection of many things over time while others come from a single event. Some items that clog gutters include:
- Leaves and twigs accumulate over time and can quickly fill your gutter, especially during autumn. Even if you don’t have deciduous trees in your yard, leaves can blow from a good distance and land in your gutter and form a clog.
- Animals can cause clogs in your gutter in many ways. Nests are one common method, especially for birds, as gutters naturally provide a stable place to keep the nest from moving, and when the birds leave the nest stays behind.
- When a toy gets stuck on a roof, where does it go? Large toys like flying discs won’t likely clog your gutters but other items can. Items like tennis and baseballs, toy cars, and even socks can end up blocking the drainage path.
Rain gutter cleaning protects your home from water damage
The primary reason gutters exist is to take water from one area and move it to another. By having gutters on your home, you direct the water away from the foundation to of your house to somewhere safer, and often beneficial. If your gutter is clogged, you could possibly damage the ground by your house and even have leaks start to develop, especially if you have a basement. But having standing water can cause other problems too, such as creating a prime environment for mosquitos, ants, and other pests you don’t want in your home.
