The hustle and bustle of the Holiday season is finally over, and it’s time to start looking forward to spring. One of the main things that should be on your to-do list is getting your gutters cleaned out and ready for the year ahead. Making sure your home’s gutters are clean and free of winter buildup ensures that when the spring rains come, your home is ready to deal with the heavy water flow. Gutter cleaning is essential to preventing water damage to the roof and walls of your home.
Another benefit of tidy gutters that you may not be aware of is infestation prevention. Many bugs and small animals might try to make their home in a debris-filled gutter, so having a thorough gutter cleaning before it gets warm outside helps prevent rodent and insect infestations from taking over your home.
You may think it’s safe to put gutter cleaning off until the summer thunderstorms start rolling in, but in North Carolina, the months of February and March each get an average of 4-6 inches of rain every year. Making sure your gutters are clean before the rain starts will help you prevent water damage to the roof and the interior and exterior walls of your home.
Cleaning out your gutters doesn’t have to be a huge chore. If you’re concerned about how to safely clean your gutters or simply don’t have the time or equipment to handle the job yourself, you can hire a company that offers gutter cleaning services instead of doing it yourself. Scheduling a professional to take care of your spring gutter cleaning takes the stress out of this essential spring chore and ensures the job is done right the first time.
