When you are a home or a business owner, you have a long list of seasonal to do’s each Autumn before the great Canadian Winter arrives. Cleaning gutters to remove leaves, sticks, and debris should be a top priority on your Autumn list. Keeping your gutters clean and clear is crucial for protecting your home or business and preventing costly inconveniences in the future.

Why is it important to get your gutters professionally cleaned annually? Check out some of the reasons that our team has outlined below!

Getting your gutters professionally cleaned will help:

  1. Prevent water damage. When your eavestroughs are blocked and the water cannot flow properly, water can overflow. This causes the potential for water damage to both the interior and the exterior of your property.
  2. Protect your roof. Gutters that are clogged with leaves and debris give no room for water to easily flow. If the water in your gutters continues to flood over, it can sneak it’s way under your shingles and cause a rotten or a leaking roof.
  3. Reduce the risk of a cracked foundation. When water is blocked from traveling away from your home, it can pool around the foundation of your house. This water can crack your foundation when it expands and freezes in the winter months.
  4. Save you money. Getting your gutters and downspouts cleaned can help prevent unexpected future projects. Taking preventive measures now can help minimize the likelihood of having to repair or replace the damages that can happen from water.
