With the weather so nice in Connecticut many homeowners and commercial building manager will be asking why they should bother with gutter cleaning. The sun is shining, the air is warm and save for a few falling leaves nothing seems to be troubling. This is the trap everyone falls for. Just because we are enjoying an Indian summer doesn’t mean a nasty November and snow-filled December won’t be around the corner.
Hoping for a mild winter is a great way to put your home or office at risk. Your gutters are what keep rainwater and melting snow from ruining your roofing, siding and foundations. Not taking care of your gutter system is a recipe for disaster. Even with the mild weather leaves are still falling and if your gutter doesn’t have a gutter guard system then these leaves are collecting in the channels and downspouts. When enough leaves gather this will clog the drain and keep water from draining properly. Then you get clogs which will force water to creep up the roof shingles, spill over the top and weaken the gutter system by adding excess weight.
By scheduling a professional gutter cleaning now you not only ensure your gutters are ready for late fall and winter but you also get prompt service. Waiting until mid-November or December can find you on a waiting list as other homeowners scramble to prepare their home for winter. A thorough gutter cleaning when most of the leaves have fallen means you get a pristine gutter that will keep your home safe from water.
