Getting Your Mind Out Of The Gutter
As far as tedious chores that nobody likes, cleaning out the gutters ranks pretty high on the list. Not only is it extremely time consuming, but it’s rather disgusting as well. Over time, leaves and debris get tracked through your gutters along with the rainwater they are meant to divert creating a dingy muck you don’t want to see.
However, just because it’s a gross task does not mean you can skip it. If gutters aren’t properly cleaned, water becomes trapped which causes rust and damages the structure of your gutters. The weight of the debris can also loosen your gutters, pulling them away from their attachments and possibly damaging the outside of your home. Furthermore, gutters are the perfect place for pests such as ants, mosquitoes, wasps, and even small rodents to build their nests. And if they can find their way into your gutters, they can certainly find their way into your home.
Most importantly, without a properly maintained gutter system your house is susceptible to water damage. In fact, since gutters are designed around the areas of a home where water damage most frequently occurs, a clogged gutter can make things even worse by causing overflow along the roof or foundation of your house.
So you have to clean your gutters, but maybe you don’t have an entire Saturday to spare in order to do the deed. Maybe you just really hate the idea of the kind of gunk you’re going to find up there. Or perhaps you just want to ensure your home receives the best treatment possible. This is where a gutter cleaning service—like the one offered through Austin’s top professional window cleaners, Gwyndow’s—really comes in handy.
Ideally your gutters should be cleaned twice a year. With spring just around the corner, it’s the perfect time to make an appointment to get your gutters professionally cleaned—and not just because it’s “spring cleaning.” With a 5-inch average, May is historically the rainiest month in the Austin area. March and April also see higher than average precipitation rates than other months. Getting your gutters cleaned for the spring season is a smart way to protect your home so you can enjoy the sounds of spring showers worry-free.
In case you were wondering, October is Austin’s second rainiest month, so having your gutter cleaning service come back in September is great idea for homeowners in the area. However, another great idea would be to take advantage of the Rain Flow Gutter Protection inserts that Gwyndow’s offers. These easy-to-install inserts fill the entire gutter so nothing but water passes through. Debris stays on top, dries in the open air, and blows away on the next breezy day to ensure clean gutters all year long.
