Wondering why you need your gutters cleaned out? It only takes a couple of handfuls of leaves falling into your gutter system to create a clog. And clogs prevent water from flowing through your gutters, causing overflow. This will not only create rusting of and damage to your gutters but also the potential for roof and wall leaks. Decaying debris sitting in the gutter releases acid that eats at seams, and it attracts pests by providing both nutrition and nesting for all kinds of creatures.

Call Green Army Clean to schedule your gutter cleaning to avoid the annoying consequences of unclean gutters.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why do I need to get my gutters cleaned?

Good question. So what if your gutters are a little clogged? Actually, when leaves and other debris prevent water from flowing through gutters and downspouts, a number of costly complications can be the result. Standing water and acid produced by decaying foliage can cause gutters and roof to rust, grow mold, and break down more quickly, which can cause roof or wall leaks. This debris also offers a nesting place that insects, rodents, and other pests love. The most basic problem that clogged gutters can cause is water overflow, which essentially means the gutters aren’t doing what they were made to do. This can damage landscaping and can create unwelcome water flow above entryways or other areas.

How do I know when my gutters need to be cleaned?

Unless you go up and check periodically, it’s impossible to know when your gutters need to be cleaned. You don’t want to wait until they start showing signs of major clogs like lack of water flow or damage to your house from standing water and acid from decaying foliage. The best thing to do is clean your gutters on a schedule so you know when to check them to see if they need to be cleaned. If you give us a call, we can send someone out to do a property assessment to tell you if your gutters need to be cleaned and, based on tree cover and other factors, how often you will likely need to get them cleaned out. Even if you choose not to have us do the cleaning, you can use this information to create a gutter-cleaning schedule.

How often should I have my gutters cleaned?

It depends on a number of factors, including how much tree coverage you have, but as a rule of thumb we generally suggest that you have them cleaned at least twice a year.
